Great going up or down.
Going into my third season, I love this helmet. It's super light, and the fit is superb. It keeps me pretty cool on those mid afternoon grinders without leaving me feeling exposed when things get wild. The removable pads are nice for washing. The graphics are still sharp as a knife. The visor is even tight still and doesn't flop around. This helmet even sports goggles with ease and great fit, just in case you have an identity crisis. Buy it!
