This is my fourth helmet in a long quest to find something comfortable. I just got back from wearing this at Whistler/Blackcomb for two weeks, and I love it. Your head really fits in it, as opposed to the helmet sitting on top of your head looking dorky. The Brock foam conforms to your head without pressure points, yet it's very firm. It also absorbs common impacts much better since it's softer. It's not rated as a helmet, but as a hard hat, but it seems firm enough to protect against everything but the most extreme impacts. The audio drivers sound great, and the integrated liner kept my kopf warm in -31 degree temps. It's the most comfortable helmet I have warn by *far*!
