    I have a white version large helmet on backorder. Do you have any idea when it will be available? It was part of a group buy and I have not received any estimate as to when it will be fulfilled.
    thanks - Greg

    Loving this helmet. It is light-weight and the vents are in a choice position. It has the hardshell toughness of the more expensive WRSI models but for far less $$$. Looks good too, has a quality gloss on it that (I'm thinking) will be resistent to scratches. Comes with ear pads and extra padding so you can customize to your fit. If your looking to upgrade over the (let's be honest) flimsy lower-priced helmets, I'd highly recommend.

    I found that if you are thinking of getting this product and your head size falls right in the middle of the two groups (S/M, M/L) you should deffinetly go for the S/M. i made the mistake of getting a M/L and then trying on my friends S/M only to find the S/M was a perfect fit, and with all the padding on the M/L i could not get it to come any where near acceptable. so just a heads up.

        Comments about WRSI Current Helmet With Vents:

        the velcro for keeping the fitting pads in place is not well attached-I'm going to have to restick it all back with contact cement- then should be fine.

                With the included pads it can comfortably fit a wide variety of head sizes. The 'small' will fit my six year old up to my teenager. No complaints of discomfort and they are happier to wear something that is designed for their size.

                The video posted on NRS about how to customize the helmet is really good and almost necessary to watch before doing this on your own. With the video I was able to do the customization in about 45 minutes of trying the helmet on with different configurations.
