I have a problem when out cycling with the cold air causing my eyes to tear badly. The solution has been to wear a snowboarder's helmet along with lightweight ski goggles. I own two Trace II helmets and they solve my watery eyes problems almost completely. The Trace II fits extremely well. The back of my head is wider than the front, but the helmet is quite comfortable. The ear pads are also comfortable. After wearing the helmet for 15-20 minutes, my head feels toasty warm inside the helmet. My goggles fit nicely over the dome. Cyclists really never remove their goggles until the ride is over, so this is not a problem. I have had the Trace II and goggles on for as much as two and a quarter hours and found everything is generally still feeling good by the time I take my helmet off. I am very impressed with how this helmet looks and feels and the fine job it does for me stopping the watery eyes problem. I would recommend the Trace II to any other cold weather cyclist. It is a bargain for the money, looks good and performs very well.

Start with the positive, sure. Comfy on the inside, top priority in my opinion. Very low profile so you don't look like alien. Lots of holes so your sweat goes up and not all in your face like your going through with-drawls (the reason i got it in the first place). Sick colors available (I went w matt black). All of these qualities worked 5 star.
However it is not a dedicated snow helmet. the problem with that is the ear insulation/padding is not perm attached and constantly comes undone with the slightest helmet adjustment. The goggle strap hook in the back of the helmet slides off waaay to easily, causing problems. Also when you put your goggles on your brow, if it isn't just right, the goggles whip over the lid and dangle on the back of your neck. it really sucks when all of these things happen at the same time. Like it did today.
i think i could perm attach the goggle hook and the ear padding, but if your not willing to bust out the crazy glue, then get the AVID. i used my sons last year and other than a lack of air vent, its grrrrreat.
