Stop, think... ok now try and do that after uve smashed ur head on a rock, tree, the snow, or anything at all for that case. For me it wasnt about the looks of a helmet, but the fact of getting use to it. The helmets these days are getting so "techy" that u really forget ur wearing it until u smash ur head on somethin. Be smart, buy this helmet and protect ur noggin, cuz if u dont; u wont remember this review, cuz u lost ur memory after catching an edge after a massive back 7 showin off for the camera and them ladies. O ya almost forgot it comes with skullcandy headphones, and a nice headphone jack that lets u control the volume and mute ur tuneage.
