Awsome helmet. Supper light. You wont even remember that you have it on. Not to mention its stylish look. Its a little spendy but i love that you can adjust how tight it is on your head with one hand. All in all its an awsome helmet!

Amazing! A modern helmet! 5 out of 5 stars

When I started shopping for climbing helmets, I was left wondering why they all seemed to be virtually unchanged since the days of hemp rope, steel oval 'biners and thick-soled boots. As a cyclist, I'm accustomed to selecting from a mind boggling array of styles, colors and sizes of helmets from XXS to XXL. Perhaps due to the smaller market, there seem to be fewer than half dozen makers producing maybe a dozen styles of climbing helmets, in at most 2 sizes to fit all. Most of these offerings looked about like a mixing bowl inverted on my li'l noggin, but fit less well. Then I discovered the Tracer. Ahhhh, at last, what a helmet should be! It fits, it's adjustable, it's ventilated and it's light. On my first all-day outing, I forgot it was on my head. 'Nuf said.
