Uncomfortable!

    Comments about Cavalo Rapide Road Helmet:

    This appeared to be an outstanding deal on a helmet from a respected company. Now I know why it was so cheap. Despite normally wearing a Medium size helmet, I noticed instantly that this was tight front-to-back and loose side-to-side. Well not everyone's head is the same. But it gets worse, the tiny pad in the front was not enough to NOT feel the contours of the helmet in my forehead AND the padding had very course, scratchy edges which very quickly started to irritate my skin. The chin strap is messed up on this as well. While I generally prefer the ratchet-wheel for tightening the head band, the lever system on this helmet seemed like I could get use to it. But I won't because this is way to uncomfortable to wear for ANY length of ride, it's going back.

        Size adjustment tabs do not hold tight, allowing helmet to grow in size as you ride.

              Comments about Cavalo Rapide Road Helmet:

              The two things that stood out about this helmet were the straps, which were unbelievably cheap, and the comfort level of this helmet, which was quite possibly the most uncomfortable helmet I've ever worn. I didn't bother returning it, because I purchased it as a return item for about half the price, and just considered it a mistake. The helmet is now in a landfill.

                The Rapide helmet fits well and looks good. The retention system in the back is comfortable and your able to dial in a snug fit. Would definitely purchase again.

                    Comments about Cavalo Rapide Road Helmet:

                    My head measures 22" and this helmet fits very comfortably. The rear adjustment clips work well and can be ratcheted with one hand. This feature proved handy when I rode my beachside trail and the wall of wind made me reach to tighten the back just a tad to reduce the helmet shifting due to the wind speed. It doesn't feel as well made as my Scott Wit MTB helmet but time will tell if it lasts. It does feel very light and the ventilation is exceptional. I wanted plain white as my jerseys are colorful, so a little understatement was necessary to add balance to the overall look ;-)

                      My only complaint is that it needs a little thicker padding. Easy fix however as I customized with leftover padding from previous helmets. Probably the lightest, very adjustable and great looking helmet I've ever had!
