LOVE this helmet!!
I bought this helmet because I was sick of my speed air moving around on my head and I hate the way the CO looks on me (tried the gr8 and the ayr8). SO HAPPY with this purchase, I even bought another one just for schooling at home! It fits great, its lightweight, and super comfy. It lets your head "breath" but while fitting snugly. The different sizing pads are great and pretty easy to change. Definitely recommend this helmet!

Best Helmet Ever!
Who hates helmets that reek after a few months of use... this girl, that's who! For those of us who ride hard and get nice and sweaty this is the helmet for you. No more wet helmet that never dries out and stinks. Cannot tell you how much money I spent previously trying to keep my CO fresh smelling with cleaners etc ect. I sweat in this and it beads down my face and my head stays nice and cool. It's a dream. Two years later I ride in it everyday, love it, and it still looks like new. Worth every penny.

This has got to be the coolest helmet! I first ordered a small which you can fit from 54 to 56 I think. My CO was a 56 but I didn't even realize how much the padding around the sides had worn. With no questions asked and free return shipping, I got the medium within about 5 days! I've had it for a little over a week now and have shown in it. The ventilation is incredible. The helmet leaves like a half inch between your forehead and the helmet. It fits on the sides of your head not the front and back which is really neat but might take some getting used to. Even though there is not so much contact with your head and the helmet, it is very secure. At the show, I did three classes at 1.20m and it didn't budge unlike my old CO. I even wore it around all day. The only thing I can say is that you have to keep after cleaning it. It easily atracts finger prints and what not but don't worry, it's a breeze to clean. Oh and the other thing. The one I got has the black strip across the front not the silver one like in the picture. If that matters at all to you now you know...Hope this helps and if you get it welcome to the Antares experience!!!

The BEST, LIGHTEST Helmet
Wore one of these in Spain from a Swiss friend (luggage, naturally misplaced) and couldn't believe I actually had a helmet on...it's that light and comfortable. Thought the M would be too small but the 7/4 padding is perfect for someone who usually wears at least a 7/5. It's not clunky looking and has kept me cool in this boiling weather. Will never buy another anything else besides an Antares!

Fits as custom as their saddles
Initially when I put this helmet on, I thought it would give me a headache because it was nice and snug. So I wore it around the house. I took it off hours later headache free. The inserts are very comfortable and are set in place with snaps so it feels more secure than the "other helmet" that replaces inserts with velcro. Ventilation is great and the leather chin strap is butter soft. I've only ridden in it 10 times or so now, but I really like it and would recommend it without hesitation.

Got this last summer at a horse show. I wanted the Speed Air, but they were sold out and I was dying in my old GPA but didn't like the First Lady so I got this one.
It's pretty amazing, not gonna lie. It doesn't touch your forehead AT ALL but doesn't move in the slightest. No headache nonsense here, you can literally wear this thing all day. You can also adjust the size by buying different thickness of pads quite easily if you cut or grow your hair. Plus it looks pretty great too.
Bottom line is, it's from Antares. And we all know how awesome Antares stuff is :)
Buy this helmet. You'll love it. I love it.
