    Comments about Ascent Strada Road Bike Helmet:

    This helmet saved my life. A car coming at me turned in front of me causing me to bail to the left. I hit the street so hard I broke my clavicle and four ribs. The left side of my head whipped against the pavement and cracked the helmet shell in three places. I was out of it for a few minutes, but this inexpensive helmet did its job. So I can't say enough about it. It worked.

      Comments about Ascent Strada Road Bike Helmet:

      Same as the helmet that was stolen with my very old (fortunately) bike.

      Had it at least a few years. If you wash your helmet in the dishwasher (NO heat), the pads may come off. A little adhesive can be used to re-attach them.

      No problems, otherwise.

        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.
