I have the original ~2009 model of this helmet. The elastic strap that goes around the back of your head stretched so much that I had to double over the strap and sew it together to shorten it again. The elastic lasted about 6 months, then stretched out. Is the elastic in the current model a more robust and improved elastic? This is a great helmet but I would not buy another one until Giro fixes this defect/

While the item description goes on about the light weight of this cage, I found that the actual weight of just the carbon parts, no screws, for the two cages I ordered were 35 grams. Over 50% more than the listed weight. Straight up s@#$s because my expectations for BC are so much higher!

Also, note that this is a two piece design so you can reverse the way the opening faces - which is nice - but then only one screw holds the actual cage part. This may not ever be a problem, but I am looking elsewhere for a light carbon cage.

I got two of these, partially because of the low claimed weight. Actual weights of my two cages with carbon parts only, no screws, were 34.4 and 35.8 grams. This is a 50% percent difference from the claimed weight, and in the wrong direction!

Sent mine back..................
