      Comments about Cavalo Forza Road Helmet:

      I have ridden about 50 miles with this helmet on and haven't had any accidents, so I can't speak much about its durability or toughness.

      Light weight, fairly comfortable, and well ventilated. I use it for recreational rides. I have no complaints so far.

        Comments about Cavalo Forza Road Helmet:

        this helmet fits well and is tight to my head. The inner channels are not as large since the helmet fits tight so there is less airflow than a larger helmet profile. I added two pads from other helmets to complete the fit process. Still can't beat it for money. very adjustable.

        Comments about Cavalo Forza Road Helmet:

        Bought this helmet along with the Bell Sweep Road Helmet (Nashbar Exclusive). Ended up keeping the Bell Sweep. The Sweep just felt a little more solid on my melon and a little bit better construction wise. The padding was appeared to be better than the Forza. If I wasn't comparing directly to the Sweep, I probably would have kept it.

          Bought one for my wife and liked it so much that I started using all the time.... so ended up getting another one for her. Very light weight and great ventilation and great value. Compares favorably to much more expensive Giro and LG helmets.

            The helmet is lightweight and fits comfortably. Ventilation is good. Helmet sometimes leaves a triangular shaped impression on my forehead which takes a while to go away.

            Comments about Cavalo Forza Road Helmet:

            I seldom do reviews but the Cavalo deserves one. I am a former state TT champion and now just enjoy long road rides of above moderate intensity on my Colnago. Needed a lightweight helmet to reduce neck soreness. Based on other great reviews I took a chance on this instead of Pro-light and couldn't be happier at any price. This S/M size helmet tested at 228 g on my scale. I normally take Giro M size and this S/M provides a great fit. Feels and looks great. Vents perfectly for Nor Cal summer heat. Only complaint is that it's just slightly more round than perfect for my oval head but still good and no mushroom head. I got the white w/silver accent and it's very bright and reflective and easily seen.

                  I have one and this was the reason for purchasing it as a gift. It's easy to adjust and stays that way. Lots of airflow - great for Florida riding.

                    I hit the ground wearing this helmet. The entire side left side was crushed and it broke in a few places. But it did it's job. Now that I've road tested it, I am buying the exact same helmet.

                      This helmet did its job when I tangled with a three-inch deep manhole cover and lost. I was going about 17mph and was distracted by my Garmin, so I missed seeing the manhole cover. I hit hard, cracked a rib, but walked away with all my marbles intact. I am grateful to Cavaolo and this fine helmet. Thank you.
