    Because it came in PURPLE.

    by TheLinaBee
    easy to adjust
    Ponytail slot
    Padding at headband is pretty thick and makes for a warm wear
    sits high

    I gotta admit, for an impulse buy, this is one divine helmet. Having seen that this lovely helmet came in a great, bright purple color, I decided to buy it (because everyone can use a 'spare' for when their friends visit, right???) and have been absolutely thrilled. I can now keep my ponytail up (instead of having to take it down and deal with the flyaway hair) since it has a ponytail slot. There is enough adjustability in the sizing that I can wear a hat underneath for cold days, and the straps stay in place once you've adjusted them.
    Aside from how it sits a little high, my only complaint is that the padding in the headband is pretty thick. On a hot day, this is uncomfortable, but quickly goes to the back of your mind when working a climb. Definitely not enough to make me think I need a different helmet. Elia FTW.

    Mine is purple too!

    side size adjusters

    I just changed over from an Elios and find the fit of this helmet to be MUCH better, although I do prefer the adjuster knob on the back of the Elios. No comments yet on durability or feel in different conditions -- will have to update the review over the seasons. Also, I feel more feminine in this helmet. Not too much, I'm climbing after all, but the right amount. :)
