I've never sported a helmet before, just thought they would be heavy, get in the way, and they looked lame. The Maze Supernove changed my view on helmets forever! It is so light weight i bearly even notice it. When you remove the inside layer i can easily wear a thin beanie and my gogs under the helmet. This is great so that i can show off the gnarly graphics of the helmet (which would be covered by the strap if i wore them on the outside.) My anon's fit perfect with the helmet, no gaper gap ever. The ear muffs keep my ears nice and toasty and come off real easy on warm days. There is no way to close the vents, so on cold days a thin beanie is needed. Perfect helmet for looking epic and feelin great.
