      Comments about Louis Garneau Orbit Mountain Helmet:

      This Helmet saved my head! Crashed in an off-camber trail, going downhill about 15mph. Fell on my side: left shoulder, right palm smacked the dirt, and my head hit the trail. Slid about 5 feet. The helmet made contact with the ground from the hard fall. It cracked internally, but Saved me! No concussion. Not even dizzy, I rode 15 miles after with my friends as if nothing happened. No broken bones, no fractures, just some road rash on my left shoulder and bruised hand. I saved the Helmet in my garage. Dented, cracked, and full of dirt from the crash. Maybe I will get a glass enclosure for it. You know, kiss the glass every now and then for luck. Anyway it was a very comfortable helmet. Good adjustment, strap and spider ratchet in the rear. I removed the visor because it was too obstructive. It hung down pretty low and blocked my vision too much. They also need more colors. Only Black/Gray and White/Blue? Why not a full White or full Silver? Anyway this is a superb helmet. Today I went to Performance Bike because it was there a few months ago. Couldn't find the Orbit. However I stuck with Louis Garneau and just purchased the "Fast Sport" helmet in a beautiful White/Red color scheme. Respect!

        Comments about Louis Garneau Orbit Mountain Helmet:

        My wife and I both needed new helmets. The Orbit was priced right, is highly adjustable, and VERY comfortable. Our heads are perhaps a slightly on the wide side, so none of the comments that mentioned that this helmet was perhaps a bit too wide, applied to us. We both found the fit to be extremely comfortable and the number of vents only added to the comfort in the warmer weather. They're extremely light weight and really look great as well. Overall, I'd say it was a very savvy purchase.

            Easy to adjust using the Knob. Feels comfortable. After adjusting the straps would be nice to include an additional band to hold the straps together even after trimming the straps. Strap material is comfortable against the skin. Nice helmet so far

              This helmet fits very comfortably. It adjusts easily for a perfect fit. The last helmet I got had plastic strips that dug into the tops of my ears. No such strips with this unit! Just pure comfort.

                Comments about Louis Garneau Orbit Mountain Helmet:

                haven't taken it out on the trail/road yet, but looks great (took of the visor - personal preference), feels nice and solid on my head (bought the small/med, head is 22"), and the adjustment mechanism is one of the best I've tried. couldn't ask for more; only deduction is that while it is definitely not bulky, i've seen sleeker, but really not a complaing (I just think that a perfect five should be very difficult to get).

                  This great fitting helmet works for me. Most of my rides are warm weather rides and the ventilation is nice. I also like the fact that the manufacturers included a second set of padding with the helmet - that's always the first thing to wear out on any helmet. It looks good too.

                  WAY too big. I measured by head and bought per the size chart. WAY too gappy on the sides w/o adjustments.

                    Overall the helmet is nice. The straps are soft enough so I haven't noticed any discomfort from them.
                    The only negative thing that I will say is that the helmet seems to run a tad big in the width.
