Time for a new helmet and I note that these are on sale at numerous places for a good price. Only one review on this site. Would appreciate any feedback from anyone who has one. Thanks

The GPS dial in the inner cage is awesome. Allows you to adjust fit on the fly - great if you take hats on or off during a ride.

just a little different, but I love mine. I had been using a Pneumo, and one day I tried on a Ghisallo in the store just for the helluvit. The Ghisallo was markedly more comfortable on me. I bought one and have been using it since.
The retaining mechanisms are slightly different, but the Ghisallo seems every bit as easily adjustable. In terms of ventilation, I couldn't really tell you, because I have pretty thick hair and it's all the same to me. I think that the Pneumo may be slightly lighter, but the difference in comfort on my head makes up for any difference in weight.

I have one in the 'Credit Agricole' colors and I love the fit and those colors.

I like mine, and I find the fit system more flexible than on some other Bells, but there's no way to guarantee fit without trying one on.

As you say, there are some very good sale prices on these.

lots of info here:

in general some of the cheaper helmets provide more protecttion while the more expensive ones are a tad lighter and have more vents
