"Well ventilated, fast feeling, comfortable, lightweight aero lid". Not a bad helmet then!
When Stu Kerton tested this helmet back in 2016, we'd just seen it being worn by Mark Cavendish and Team Dimension Data.
The helmet is designed to be slippery and whilst neither we nor Road.cc can vouch for the aero claims, Stu did find that it works very well in the real world.
You can even buy a Mark Cavendish special edition. It's the same helmet with a special paint scheme and the vowels removed.
Internally, the gel padding gives a really comfortable fit and doesn't soak up sweat like a foam pad. This prevents a flood of sweat streaming into the eyes when the pad is saturated.
Airflow is also good, with Stu finding this to work like any other vented helmet.
