This is the most comfy helmet I've owned (previously Giro Nine.9 & Giro Flint SC). Unusually, I'm using it without the (rather big & burly) visor right now. It's easier to pack in my boot-bag, and you can put your goggles up.
The strap is a bit fiddly, but it's the "auto-sports approved" type of fastening, with the 2 metal loops, instead of a plastic buckle.
My Turbo Prodigy's seem to only just fit in the eyehole. But, in fact, they're a perfect fit. No brain-freezing draughts (like the Flint SC), and no pushing your nose closed.
The helmet feels nice & light to wear.
The glossy black finish has got a bit marked up, already (3rd wearing) from me having it strapped onto my back-pack, on a gondi ride :frown:
I guess, if you have the $$'s, go for the Carbon Fibre option.
It prolly won't fit under your jackets hood :confused: and there's no "widget" to hold your goggles on with. But that's it.
