  Not so good.

I got a new coabon and got the fit good, very comfy; had it on and got rolled while surfing and the buckle broke. Needless to say if the helmet won't stay on while surfing you can't count on it being there in rougher conditions.

IMO, after looking more closely; the buckle & strap system are lighter than my much less expensive SR, the impact values are probably not as good either. WRSI used a thinner mini-cell type foam housed inside a plastic inner-shell for impact absorbsion. While this may be a more dureable design, it is most likely inferior to the thicker,(EVA?), crushable foam cores found in most other helmets, (similar to those in my ski helmet.

FWIW, t.george
