Largely I ride 16-20 miles daily in the summer in my town on country roads. I bought 2 different helmets over time that I didn't like and never wore. I disliked the look and feel. This summer I would do my ride occasionally with my 15 year old grandson, so I decided to try and find a helmet that I might actually use and enjoy and also be a good example! I have to say that for me this is like a "non-helmet" helmet. It is super comfortable and light and looks hat-like, and the visor is a delight. Sometimes when I come home I even forget to take it off and wear it while I poke around in my garden! I like it that much!
