Has anyone got one of these?

They seem a really good price and my old 661 helmet has taken a bit of a battering and hurts my head when i've had it on all day.

The 661 helmet i have is an XL but i'm normally a m/l in XC lids. anyone any idea on sizing of these? I know it's CRC so I could buy both and send one back but i CBA with the hassle if i can help it.

Cheers

    I picked one up in a shop and it felt really heavy. The lining isn't the best quality either.
    There are some pretty good discounts on Urge -Down-O-Matic helmets, I got one a few weeks ago for £84. They are as light as a carbon Troy Lee D3, very well made and the peaks are indestructible. I find them very comfortable as well. Well worth the extra cash over a Fly helmet.

    I swapped my trusty old 661 comp for the new comp shifted, it is so comfy, really light and an absolute bargain at £50 ish.
    Would not hesitate in buying another.
