    Comments about Ascent Strada Road Bike Helmet:

    I have been riding for a long time with a cheap, mass-market helmet. That one was getting really ratty, so I decided to buy a new one. This helmet was on sale and looked decent, so I bought it.

    I never realized how much difference a good helmet makes. For starters, the airflow through the helmet keeps my head significantly cooler. I don't perspire as much from my head, so I don't get sweat in my eyes.

    Also, the helmet is significantly more comfortable than my prior one. Notably, the straps don't interfere with my glasses, so it is easier to take them on and off with one hand.

    As an added bonus, the reduced drag and the lighter weight combine to minimize the stress on my neck. On long rides, my neck used to always get tired. I never realized how much my helmet contributed to that.

    Maybe this isn't so much a rave about this particular helmet, but about investing in a decent helmet in general. Regardless, I am very glad I bought this one.

      Comments about Ascent Strada Road Bike Helmet:

      I've had an Ascent helmet on in two different crashes. In the first crash I had compression fractures of C5 in neck and T2,T3,T4 in back. Plus lots of torn ligaments. But, no concussion.

      In the most recent accident I broke 6 ribs and broke my scapula in several pieces. But, no concussion.

      Both times the docs were amazed that I remained conscious and wasn't knocked out. I give total credit to the Ascent helmets for possible saving my life.

      I ride about 2000 miles a year and race multisport events. I am sticking with the Ascent on my new helmet even though I normally like the newest and sexiest (expensive) equipment. I'm afraid to ride with anything else!

          Needed a backup helmet. This one is worthy of primary use. Needed extra without visor for road. Just what I needed. I remember the days paying $125 for helmets. I'm much wise and frugal these days. Not flashy but i have no doubt it will protect just as well as more expensive ones.

              I bought the large size of this helmet, because I have thick hair, depends on which hairstyle I may where eg. braids, the helmet won't go on. Nice helmet overall I love the style.

                Very happy with purchase, should have bought long ago. Thought they sent the wrong size but noticed that it was a large, I was just used to my clunky old helmet.

                    I went out for my weekend long ride this morning with two team mates. I was at mile 35 when I made a mistake and took one nasty spill at 23 mph. The first thing to hit the pavement was my left shoulder followed up by the side of my head. Needless to say the helmet is done, cracked in two places, but I was able to get right back up. If not for the helmet, I can honestly say I would be in the hospital right now. I am now licking my wounds, and nursing a light headache, but I am doing so in the comfort of my own home.

                      This helmet probably saved my life. It's also the first helmet that I liked wearing. I was hit by a truck two weeks after I purchased the first one. I'm here to get a replacement.

                          Helmet design has chin strap extending from upper head area inside helmet. This pressing against head and is uncomfortable.
