I was not sure about this helmet when I first put it on, the fit was way different than the Vortex it was to replace. After the first ride, my impression changed. This helmet feels lighter, is less affected by wind (I ride a naked bike) and is maybe a bit quieter. Most of the difference in fit is the shape of the cheekpads and the ear cutouts. The headliner is also a bit firmer, not by much.
Overall, I would say this helmet is an improvement over the Vortex.
