They say running with sharp objects is unsafe, but what about riding with the Louis Garneau Sharp Helmet? Experts agree that it's more than OK to push the pedals around with the Sharp on your noggin, because its U-Bar exoskeleton and Super MSB shock ring distribute crash impacts throughout the entire helmet, so forces aren't concentrated at the point of impact. High-quality impact protection is also dependent on fit, though, so Garneau hooked the Sharp up with a Spiderlock SL2 fit adjustment system, which gives you a snug, comfortable fit with the twist of a dial, no matter the weird shape of your head. 22 vents help keep your grey matter cool and comfortable, and the removable visor shields your eyes from sun and rain, unless you prefer to take it off for a more classic road look.

I have always been really impressed by this helmet. It is a fantastic helmet and is worth way more than what it sells for. I choose it everyday. It feels really light and has a lot of ventilation. On those really hot day in the middle of the summer, this is my go to every time. I am on my second one now.

Runs a bit small; I would order a size up. That being said, I didn't return mine. I have really enjoyed this helmet so far. It is very lightweight and comfortable. I wish the padding was slightly better, but the ventilation is great. My head never gets sweaty on rides up to 30 miles.
