Tilts forward more than others...

I loved the look of this helmet and liked the way my old Giro fit, so I took a chance and ordered online thinking that it'd be a win-win. What I didn't know about the helmet though, was that the adjustment straps -- unlike any other helmet I've owned -- mount directly into the helmet itself. There is still an adjustable band inside, but straps have more limited adjustability. That said, once things broke in a bit (and the straps softened from sweat), the limited adjustability hasn't really been the problem I thought it would be. Instead, the biggest issue I've had is that the helmet simply does not want to stay put on my head. The slightest bump causes it to tilt forward on my head to where the front edge is stopped only by my eyebrows before completely obscuring my vision. I'm sure it's something that only happens to specific head shapes, but it's very annoying for me. I did figure that I could minimize the issue by wearing my Headsweats (full head cover type), as the helmet sticks to it and doesn't want to slide around as much. So, I'll continue to wear the helmet, but will need to invest in a couple more Headsweats ...
