Sure, it looks great, and because you can remove the ear pads and liner, I thought I could turn it into a summer climbing helmets. Don't make the same mistake! There is no hard shell on the outside: the lightweight comes from a shock-absorbing foam which will protect you. So the plastic outer layer (only for decoration?) ends up very fragile and bears the scars of every scratch you’ve had.
Other problem: do not remove and replace the inside cushions and other stuff too often, because it apparently wasn't meant for that (eventually you can't put all the pieces back together again).

Good quality, and really great outsole, but there are two problems. 1) It's too warm or not breathable enough when the temperature is above 0C (not enough surface for the XCR membrane to be effective here) and 2) The "lacing system" is not as good as its main competitor (the Salomon XCR) because here it doesn't allow you to squeeze the forefront of the foot while maintaining a comfortable fit around the bigger part of the foot: when racing downhill you'll have to choose between keeping blood circulation into your feet (with a loose fit) or keeping your toe nails intact (with a tight fit)!
