Hi,

Does anyone else have this helmet?

I recently purchased it because so many people on line said how comfortable it is. However, I am finding it very uncomfortable.

My helmet only has 3 pads - is this normal? Any suggestions?

Thanks :D

    Helmet fit is incredible individual - I'd never buy a helmet without trying first - even more than shoes.

    I have one and love it - but as the above poster says, helmets are very personal. A bit fiddly to adjust until you figure it out, but easy thereafter.

    My suggestion would be try a helmet before you buy it !
    Failing that - wear a buff underneath ?

    I have one, have to agree when i have no hat or buff on (being follicaly challenged) it can be uncomfortable if not adjusted perfectly, seems like it could do with slightly thicker padding
    All lies and jest..still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest....

    I wonder whether some of these lids trade comfort for a lower claimed weight. Could do with a set of "comfort" pads

    Suggest you try the Ionos model that comes complete with a comfy liner for cooler days. :wink:

    That's what I went for in the end after trying a few road lids - none of which were as comfortable as my Xen MTB lid
