Finally a helmet that fits!

The most important part of a helmet is how well it fits your noggin and I could never get "unisex" helmets to fit correctly. The Elia stays perfectly atop my head when I move and tilt it while climbing; I almost forget it's there sometimes! It's comfortable, has good ventilation, and I can fit a beanie or balaclava underneath it when temps get cold. And don't worry ladies, it's certified to UIAA/CE safety standards (which tests both top and side impact), even though it has a (very, very useful) contour for your ponytail. I wear mine confident that my head is well protected. Highly recommended!
