Awesome helmet, not the same as in the pictures.
Helmet is absolutely amazing. Only thing wrong that deserves 3 stars is the advertisement. Chin strap is navy blue not black like in the pictures. Makes a decision hard to make if the product is not the same as advertised.
Best of the best

This is the most comfortable helmet I've ever owned. Put it to the test a few times hitting the ground and it did the job! The helmet also breathes very well on hot days.
Best helmet I've ever owned. Great venting and protection. Spend money to protect your brain.
Improved fit for 2018

One of the things I did not like about last year's A2 was the fixed turnbuckles on the chin strap. It needed more slack on the back and less on the front, because when the helmet is where it wants to sit on your head, the buckle was pushing back into your throat. For 2018, that has been made adjustable and the whole helmet feels like it fits better because the strap is not influencing the helmet to rotate back. And of course, TLD's graphics and finish are second to none.

This is my first mountain biking helmet, so I have nothing to compare it to, but its an incredible helmet. Insanely comfortable and seems to vent very well (its not real hot in Maine right now). Sizing seems to be spot on. I was right at the lower range of the M/L size and I do have to crank it down to just about its smaller limit. There is a ton of adjustments you can make to the helmet to get it to fit just right based on your preferences. Came with a sweet storage bag, bunch of stickers and a very good manual explaining the adjustments. My only complaint is that the pin striping and graphics look so good, I don't want to cover any up with GoPro mounts! Hopefully I will never have to test its durability and level of protection.
