This helmet is fantastic. I ordered it in black, and despite the color, in the summer it remained cool on the inside. What really impressed me is that recently I took a major spill off a galloping horse, but walked away with a minor headache. A++
This helmet saved my life! I rode alone (not recommended) one day. My horse spooked as I was mounting & took off with my one foot in the stirrup. In seconds, he bucked me hard & I hit the ground hard. The helmet popped & I was amazed I was still conscious long enough to call 911. I received a fractured spine, 6 multi fractured ribs that punctured my right lung.I was unable to crawl, walk or stand but awake enough to call for help. My surgeon told me I would have died instantly from the head impact alone without a helmet, not to mention, the punctured lung would have collasped minutes afterward & that would have killed me in less than 30 minutes in the pasture that day. I am so IMPRESSED & GRATEFUL that helmet took the blow & spared me! I've been riding over 25 yrs & teach horseback classes. I strongly recommend wearing helmet no matter age or experience. I thank God & the Troxel company for making a surperior product! I still ride today with a new Troxel helmet! I am living proof this helmet works !!!
