Your body is made mostly of carbon, and now your lid is too.
- Carbon fiber shell offers increased durability and lighter weight as compared to ABS and polycarbonate shells
- EPS polystyrene is a lightweight, solid foam—when hit, EPS evenly distributes energy throughout its internal structure to keep your head intact
- Sink Fit design fits the lid around your head (rather than on letting it ride on top), which provides both advanced comfort and an ultra-low profile
- Removable knit liner for year-round use—leave it in to fight off the winter chill and take it out when the weather warms up

Comfortable & light
I find this helmet really comfortable. I worried about the lack of vents, but in reality found it to be fine. In terms of sizing, I originally ordered a L based on the size chart, but returned it and got a XL. I like the lack of vent switches and glued on pieces - it's a one piece helmet with cloth ear coverings - this means I can strap it into a helmet holder on my pack without bits breaking or getting caught.

I trust this helmet on some of the hardest venues. It's light wieght and strong.
Is this just a "Hard hat"? If so, is the...
Is this just a "Hard hat"? If so, is the Carbon Fiber Watts EPS the same as well?
What is this hard hat story anyway?
Hard hats are hard hats. Eps and zip mold helmets are helmets. Hard hats are made to absorb multiple impacts with the spongy brock foam liner. They are extremely comfy, breathable and forming to the head. Eps and zip mold helmets absorb impacts by cracking (the way all snow helmets work). Hard hats are not certified, eps and zip mold helmets are certified. They use hard foam liners. Hard hats work well for smaller multiple impacts. Zip mold and eps helmets work well for single, larger "catastophic" impacts.
