This highly ventilated type of helmet is used for road riding and commuting. The helmet is extremely light yet still offers excellent protection. Absent from this helmet is a visor and does not quite as much additional material at the lower back part of the helmet. This allows the rider to look up further to compliment the more forward and low body position that is typical of road riding.
