      Comments about Louis Garneau Vuelta Road Helmet:

      This helmet seems too short, in other words seems to leave exposure along the sides of my head, above my ears and below the helmet. If you even have a tiny thought you might be a large, definately order a large.

        This helmet fits very well, it's stylish and lightweight. I've only worn it for about 200 miles, so I can't speak to the durability. But, thus far, I love it!!!

            Comments about Louis Garneau Vuelta Road Helmet:

            I was very surprised with the comfortable fit and the ventilation. Some of the reviews I read before purchasing it were concerned with the straps. But I found them to be comfortable and strong which is what I wanted. The only complaint I have is that I wanted a yellow color rather than the red. Yellow is my personal preference only. The red is very pretty however.

              I love road cycling, and have only been doing it for 2 years. I've gone through several inexpensive helmets, and not one of them have stood up to the value of this helmet. Highly visible, comfortable, and a great style.

              IF you are looking for a new helmet, and are on a budget, this is a great deal.

                I've got a fairly big head, and this is by far the Best helmet I've ever owned. Comfortable and very easy to dial in the fit. Great helmet !

                  Comments about Louis Garneau Vuelta Road Helmet:

                  My head is right on the border between a small and medium. The small fits me great in the Bell helmets but the medium is right for this one. The head shape is a little rounder than a Bell but it fits really well and the best thing I noticed is that the front never slips down on my forehead. The helmet stays put without adjusting it too tight. Once it's on I never have to adjust it.I'm really pleased.

                    I love it. I bought two other helmets online that did not fit for various reasons. This one fits great and is easy to adjust. It's lightweight with plenty of ventilation. Hopefully it will never meet asphalt but it seems tough.
