I've gone through quite a few helmets. I was looking at the Maze originally, but I was drawn to the Allure because of the fuzzier liner and ear pads. Plus, the Gunmetal color is pretty sweet. It's by far the lightest helmet I've worn. I like the simple elastic deal in the back for snug fit. I use this with the Smith I/O and I/OS goggles. The fit is great. I don't run that hot, so I don't mind the simple venting system.
