More like a clover green instead of a dark green
It does the job. I took the padding out of the medium like another user recommended so it doesn't looks like I came off the set of "Spaceballs". If I wanted the padding I would have ordered the large.
It held up to the kicking winds in Squaw on Lake Tahoe and held my goggles in place too.
Great helmet for the price.
Only gripe I had is that the color of the helmet displayed is alot lighter green than shown above. It reminded me of the clover green bridesmaid dress from David's Bridal I was unfortunately forced to wear.
Can I use this for summer (bike riding/hiking)...
Can I use this for summer (bike riding/hiking) as well or is this only a winter helmet?
It will work well any time of year. Great helmets.
Burton has gotten it right. I've been on the search for a new helmet for awhile now -- looking for something that won't make me look like I stepped off the set of Spaceballs. This year's Aletta finally fits the bill - I had to do a little tweaking with the interior padding to get it low-enough profile, but it's comfortable, the adjustable fit system is amazing, and it's super-lightweight. I was able to take the speakers out of my older burton audio beanie and plug them into the earpads as well. I wear this helmet with Dragon DXS goggles, and they fit perfectly. I really couldn't be happier. I have the helmet in natural hemp, which is pretty - the image on Dogfunk is pretty true to the color - kind of a beige-y green. I'm considering getting it in black, though, too.
A word on size - just FYI, R.E.D. has changed their helmet sizing this year, so if you have an older Burton helmet, don't just assume you wear the same size ... you'll probably wear a size smaller. Dogfunk's size chart is accurate, so go off of that.
