Absolutely love the looks of the white and gray helmet. I was a little sheepish at first because the color online makes the gray look look darker but in person the gray color (in the best way I can describe it) is more like the "safety reflective gray" color that you see on running clothing tabs. It is however not reflective. I guess I could have just said the gray color is lighter. Helmet fits great. Airflow is better than my Oakley Aro5 and is smaller in size. Sunglasses don't fit well with the helmet due to low temple cutouts push sunglasses down and the sunglasses press into your ears. Maybe the new sunglasses that Rudy just came out with the offset side frames would work better. I am opting for the face shield. Total win in my books.
I absolutely love the look and feel of the helmet. I had very high expectations and was super excited about getting it. Sadly, this helmet just doesn't work for me at all. I've tried multiple adjustments and I can't get anything to work. I measured my head correctly and consulted the sizing charts to make sure I got the right size, so no problems there. The helmet sits too low on my forehead and with no bevel to accommodate the face shield, my view is blocked when in my normal riding position, especially on the drop bars. I can barely see past the front wheel. The face shield made visibility worse and it has some issues I noted in that review. Since the face shield was a bust for me, I tried sunglasses and that was a bust too. The portion of the helmet that drops in front of the ear, covering the temple, blocked 4 different pairs of sunglasses, so I gave up. I hate giving less than 5 stars, but this helmet may not be for everyone even though it looks and feels incredible. I guess I'm just going to have to buy replacement pads, a bug shield, and buckles for my old Rudy Project helmet.
would be nice to see your helmets from different angles, inside/outside. I was going to update my bike helmet but with only one picture I can’t decide.
