Rated5out of5bymndocfromGreat Urban HelmetThis was a replacement for a heavier and less expensive helmet which did the job in a crash. Compared to a road helmet, the Hex sits further down on the sides and the back, which feels like it gives more protection. Light weight, comfortable, and easy to adjust makes the extra cost worthwhile. Since everyone has a slightly differently shaped head, there is no substitute from trying on multiple helmets in the store if possible.

Rated4out of5bylitespeed74from"Cool" helmetGreat all around helmet. Most noticeable was how cool your head stays. The vents are angled perfectly for air flow. No obnoxious visor either.

Rated5out of5bydelacrudfromCozy all-around helmetThis was a considerable upgrade for me from a Bern helmet. I ride my bike nearly every day so it's been worth the money to me because it's So much lighter and more ventilated. The only thing clunky about the adjustment is that you can tweak it under both ears and then under the jaw; the fit can get pretty nice, but it can mean frequent reworking of the straps. Part of the reason that doesn't bother me is that the roc-lock in the back feels nice and snug on my head and I like that it's a more natural extension of the way my head's already shaped (plus visor) instead of a racing helmet that has a bunch-a-business in the back.

Rated4out of5byEucalypticChewfromComfortable and fashionable.I try to ride at least every other day ten to twenty miles. My longest ride is 35 miles. This is my first helmet and although the size seems to be a little smaller than I expected, the helmet still fits me and is comfortable all through the 35 mile ride. Seems like it will be nice in the summer. Will try to update after more use.
