I rode in it for the first time and was a little underwhelmed in the beginning. I have a Shark Race R and I guess this Pista shows just how good the Shark is. But after a long ride it started to make sense. The faster I went, the better this helmet got. The quality is amazing, it is really beautiful and I'm glad I got it. It's comfortably tight, flows a lot of air, and the real reason I got it is because my other helmet had some rubbing on the back of my race suit in a tuck. This doesn't have any of that. I'm looking forward to getting it out onto Big Willow where I can test it at really high speeds for a while, but it's a great helmet. So is the Shark.
