I bought this helmet because I don't really like the style and fit of the traditional road bike helmet with the pointy posterior. This one offers a bit more actual protection, though obviously not as aerodynamic (in case that is important to you). I had a similar helmet before the pointy ones became popular and it served me well through three crashes, one of which would definitely have resulted in head/face injury with out it. The lining of the helmet feels firm, like it might actually protect you from a crash so if you like soft and cushy this may not be for you.
