Bikes are more capable than ever, and that means you're changing faster and harder as you barrel down mountain sides and weave through techy treelines. These faster paced and harder-charging lines call for a boost in protection, and 7 Protection is up for the challenge with the M2 Helmet. This helmet combines Conehead technology that utilizes dual-density foam to dissipate impacts, and full coverage on the temples and back for an extended shield when you're driving your rally-hound down the mountain at top speeds.
Conehead technology targets areas most prone to hard hits with two different densities of impact-absorbing foam that compact under force to dissipate the energy before it meets your head, potentially reducing the impact carried on to you. Its combined with a hard shell exterior that shields you from hits, and ample ventilation to help you keep your cool when the temperatures soar. The front of the helmet has ten large vents, and features a mesh bug-stopper to keep your scalp free of intruders when you're mashing pedals along a muggy riverside. The back sets you up with an additional nine vents that compliment the front ten, working as an active exhaust system to pull hot air away from your head and leave it in the wind behind you. Inside you'll find a custom 7iDP liner that cushions your scalp, and is easy to remove after a warm day on the trail, so you can stay fresh day after day, while a one-handed dial system lets you cinch in the perfect fit when you're suiting up at the trailhead.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
For the price, this helmet is pretty tough to beat. I've tried a number of lids, and the M2 might be one of the better fitting I've found. For the sake of comparison, I'd say the sizing and feel is similar to the Kask Rex but not nearly as well lightweight or ventilated. The concentration of padding that sits right on the forehead eventually becomes quite sweaty on even a cool ride. If I had to have a main gripe, that'd be it. Otherwise, it's an excellent value helmet with great coverage and protection.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I have been using this helmet for a couple weeks now and I am very impressed with the fit and comfort of it. Once you get the M2 on and adjusted you can hardly tell you are even wearing a helmet. The rapid adjust chin strap and the dial on the back make it just about the easiest helmet to adjust on the fly. As for the technical features it has full coverage on the back of your head and around to the temples made out of dual density EPS foam for maximum protection. They used a front mesh panel that keeps bugs and debris out of the helmet. Overall it is a killer helmet for a great price point, complete your kit with an M2.
