Love how the helmet feels.

Love how the helmet feels. The adjustable boa helps for a firm fit. Very light can barely tell it’s there

Almost perfect

This product compares well against other backcountry helmets on paper (weight, features, etc). The quality is better than others I’ve tried. I use this for backcountry touring and really enjoy how the BOA tucks away. I’m usually a small women’s in Smith and the Small in this helmet fits tight enough when tightening the BOA. Minus one star because the Matte Poppy color is more of a salmon pink and not a red. This was disappointing. And, removable ear flaps would be nice for those cold mid-winter days.

Lots of great features, but lacking some key ones

I bought this to replace my smith mission which i was rocking without ear flaps for years for this purpose. + folding boa adjustment is great. +edges are molded so they don’t delaminate like some others with heavy use. - chin strap situation flaps wildly at speed. Super annoying. - There is no goggle retention catch or clip (a vertically oriented bungee (like the side ones) would be sweet to keep the goggles straight. - headlamp slots and bungee attachments are gimmicky, but at least they don’t flop around or come undone. - mips is still awkward and unnecessary.

Odd Fit

The helmet is quite large overall, does not feel trim. My biggest issue is that the tightening system/cables comes down below my ears so when I cinch down the helmet my ears get pinched and with a hat on, there is no adjustment. The dial feels like it sits awkwardly low on the back of my neck as well. The chin strap is also odd, and when tightened the buckle sits center under my chin and the pad does nothing. I really wanted to like this helmet, but it doesn’t seem like it was tested for fit on small -average women.

Non-adjustable straps. Really?

What a huge disappointment. I wear a medium Vantage. It fits perfectly. What a great shell design. It's just what I wanted. However, the straps on the Summit are non-adjustable. No fore-aft chin strap adjustment is possible. Either the chin strap must be positioned too uncomfortably low, or the front temple straps will be too loose for a safe fit. Two 5g sliders plastic at the strap triangle would have eliminated this problem. In addition, the symmetrical l-r length of the strap triangles places the buckle too far toward center, making the chin strap pad useless. Unfortunately, the Summit fits a very specific head shape – but with non-adjustable straps, it isn't mine. Returned.
