Cons Expensive, visor is less user friendly than the competitionExpensiveOn the heavier side, non-adjustable strap splittersExpensive, still not as ventilated as the competitionHeavier weight, average ventilation
Bottom Line The combination of protection, comfort, ventilation, and lightweight make this one of our highest rated helmetsThe Specialized Ambush is one of the best helmets in this test, and it comes with a unique crash detection systemThe Speedframe Pro packs an answer for most classic trail helmet problemsThe Forefront 2 is an updated version of Smith's popular Forefront helmet with the same comfortable fit and several improvementsThe Sixer MIPS performs right alongside the best helmets in our test with just a little bit of added weight
