Comfort. Fit. Style. Those three words sum up Bontrager's Starvos perfectly, and yet, somehow only tell part of the story. Of course safety is the number one priority, so the Starvos uses an In-Mold composite skeleton. This not only provides excellent protection, but it also allows for huge, thoughtfully placed vents that manage airflow over your head for cooling. Dial in a custom fit quickly with the Headmaster II one-handed system. Plus, soft, moisture-wicking, and washable helmet pads along with FlatLock Strap Dividers make it incredibly user-friendly.
Bought helmet as gift for my wife, after she had tried one on at another David Cycle. Right out of the box the ratcheting mechanism would not tighten down. If it can not make out of the box without breaking, have to wonder how it would hold up for the long haul. Goodbye Bontrager, hello Giro.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
