    Most comfortable fit of any helmet that I've had so far! Fits snuggly on my head, feeling like it gives good protection. Normally wear a size small/medium in a helmet - purchased a medium in this one and it fits perfectly. Good ventilation.

    I have measured my dome few times and went with Medium size, partially due to the fact that previously bought OR hat was too big in Large for me.
    Nope, missed again. Too small time. Couldn't squeeze in my melon in the widest setting. Will give it away. Nice looking helmet and seems to be functional too. But be careful with sizing

    used it on a ride up the coast last weekend. The fit is really good and the air vents work nice! Not bad looking either.

    As others have stated, it may run small - I have a sm/med head, and the medium, when I first put it on, was snug. HOWEVER, after playing around with the pads (putting the thinner pads on that are included with the helmet), and loosening the adjustable tension inside the back of the helmet, the medium fit perfect. This helmet is so light I forget I have it on, but it is clearly made for protection, and the amount of vents is a welcome change from my last helmet. Finally, although safety is first priority, this helmet looks GOOD on, which is fine by me!

    helmet is lightweight and has plenty of ventilation. I have a small head so the ability to adjust the helmet to fit was critical. I was able to use the clips on the back to get the fit correct. There was one small pressure point on top of the helmet that bothers me on longer rides, but I have tried moving some of the pads around and that has helped.

    this is a good helmet, fit and comfort. I always used a Bell and I find that the Bell straps seem to be stronger but otherwise, this helmet is light and comfortable and people around me say that it looks nice too.

    So far the helmet has a nice appearance and comfortable (and adjustable) fit. Hasn't been hot enough to evaluate the coolmax pads, but they should be a help.

    So, don't buy this helmet if you're worried about looking like an "intense" cyclist, or if the two little red marks it leaves on your forehead for 15 minutes after you take it off are a deal-breaker. But, I don't really care about either of those, and I love, love, love this helmet.

    1. Everyone's head is slightly different, but this fits mine really well. I don't get headaches or pressure spots or anything.
    2. I know there are lighter (and waaaay more expensive) helmets out there, but this is light enough (and well ventilated enough) that it has NEVER made me think "ugh. I wish I didn't have this helmet on right now." Besides, my gut is a much better place to try and lose some (kilo)grams -- not my helmet.
    3. Purely anecdotal, but I do have a soft spot in my heart for this helmet because my first one was damaged after an altercation with the business end of a Lincoln Towncar, but my head was fine. Obviously, this is nowhere near a decent methodology for determining the safety of a helmet, but it worked once for me, so I'll stick with it. :)

    My head measurements put me just at the top of the medium sized helmets. While this helmet in a medium size did fit, it was just barely big enough. The Bell helmet that I eventually went with fit me in a medium size with room to spare. My bigger concern with the Rune was the poor ventilation. I should have realized even looking at the pictures. Maybe this would work well for a winter helmet.
