The best helmet for you probably the one that's so comfortable to wear that you forget that it's doing its job of protecting your most important body part. Comfort is a matter of good ventilation and good fit. The ventilation part of the equation is independent of the wearer. This helmet is very well ventilated and yet does not produce excessive or annoying wind noise on fast descents.
Good fit is a matter of how well the helmet adjusts to your unique noggin. Whether a helmet works for you will largely depend on the shape of your head. However, it also depends on the adjustments that the helmet provides (including vertical adjustment, which this helmet provides), achieving that adjustment in a way that distributes the pressure relatively evenly, the ease of achieving the adjustment that works for you, and how well the adjustment holds. On all these latter, rider-independent counts, this helmet scores very high.
On my scale, the M size ticks above the 285 g stated. But it's still below 300 g. My head is very happy. And I greatly doubt if it would be happier were I to be so foolish as to take a 15 g divot out of it.
This helmet handily meets the forget it's on criterion for me. That was not the case for any of the more-commonly available helmets from the larger, better-known makers.
