I have a bit of a skinny, but tall head, and have been wearing your standard XC/roady looking helmets for years. On rides longer than an hour or two, the standard XC helmets would start digging into the very peak of my head - not a great feeling for those all day rides. Also, they always sat on my head like an oversized carbon fiber zit. Yay.
Anyways, I wanted to try a helmet with more coverage and a different style - and this one was perfect. I ended up with the Sm/Md size after trying both sizes on. The large size was comfortable, but left too much room around the sides of my head. Styling - love it. Great shape to the helmet, good coverage around the ears/back of head. Also, I got the silver shown above - but something must have been wrong w/ the photo shoot because my helmet is more white and lighter silver than the photos show - which is great, cause it helps reflect the sun better, and looks fantastic.
Anyways, I had to order another helmet because my wife stole mine.
In summary, this helmet is comfortable (comes with 2 different size pads to help adjust to your noggin) and does not have your typical band that tightens. I wore it on a 4 hour ride in hot sun, moderate temps (80s) and did not think this was any warmer than my XC style helmet (I was still sweating like a pig, but that's me regardless). Styling - looks awesome, no more zit head! Cost - great. This was about half the price of my last Specialized helmet, and fits/looks much better.
I would say if you are on the fence, order it and try it. If it doesn't fit . . .send it back. I was very pleased with this purchase, and so was my wife.
Overall great helmet for all conditions. I have used this helmet in the middle of summer when the humidity is really high and I haven't had any complaints. I like the ventilation holes better than the other helmets because it's less likely that spiders/ticks/bugs will fall in.
Hardly any pressure points, comfortable on long trips. Great for when it rains.
Stupid Oval Shaped Head
I love this helmet, but it absolutely does not fit me. There really isn't any adjustment to be made, so this helmet either fits or it doesn't. In my case, it is not snug at all laterally and fits very loose in that dimension. This helmet has proper rear coverage extending to the base of the skull, and is far far lighter than it looks. I like the crazy styling, and it even comes with a cool helmet bag/cover and sheet of stickers to rice out whatever needs some ricing. If you have a rounder head, then this should fit you pretty well.
Great helmet, but no replacement visors!
I've had this helmet for over a year, and love the fit and look of it. The only issue is that the plastic visor is flimsy and will likely break eventually, just from plastic fatigue. This happened to me and many other people. Huck-n-Roll tells me that they don't have any spare parts available for these helmets, but that they are aware of the problem and are contacting Urge about spare parts availability. So, we should see spare visors for sale here eventually.
