Rated 4 out of 5 by MalamuteMan Excellent, well fitting helmet
After selling my Giro Feature it was between this IXS RS & the Bluegrass GoldenEye. The bluegrass, disappointingly didn't fit well, whereas this IXS was an excellent fit.
It sits nice and low on the head, so you're not a mushroom head and is one of the lighter helmet available. There's low coverage at the back and nice padding on the inside. A very comfortable helmet that feels well supported even without doing up the chinstrap. There are also a lot more vents than i'm used to, so will be helpful on the climbs and in summer.
The only downside i found was that the goggles strap didn't sit very well. Will have to look into some glasses now.
Most new helmets in this price point (£85) are including optional camera/GoPro mounts, whereas this does not. I also would've liked them to be more goggle compatible with the strap at the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trees Great fit, looks good and is well made.
This helmet is quality. Ordered it after trying a 661 recon and being very disappointed. This helmet more than made up for it. Looks great, fits me like a glove, lightweight and well ventilated. If your trying to save money and are looking at cheaper helmets don't, have a few less beers on the weekend or eat less food instead:-)
