Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy helmet for the money My husband and i will both be home for awhile by ourselves. My husband agreed to do trail rides with me on the Condition he wear a helmet. The only problem was he has a large head and the only helmet i had that fit him was an old uncertified hunt cap. I found the ovation in xl and ordered it. It fits him perfectly. We have been enjoying daily trail rides for 2 weeks now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible This was the Xs size and was way too big for me. The shape was wrong and it almost turned on my head. Maybe it was labelled wrong. I sent it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet My granddaughter detests wearing a helmet, we grew up wearing cowboy hats and it's been a jolt to our red neck attitudes to wear helmets for 4H! Anyway, this one fits her nicely without the bubblehead effect and is cool also. She feels much more comfortable in this one. I would highly recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great helmet! I bought this helmet intended for schooling purposes and it’s a great helmet. I have a Gpa for shows but I don’t want to ruin that one. With any helmet your going to sweat in the summer but this one does seem to help. It’s a good cheap helmet that’s replaceable when you need a new one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Matte finish shows fingerprints Good for the money but can’t wipe off fingerprints.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty disappointed actually Ive got 3 prior versions of this helmet so ordering again when I needed a replacement was a no brainer. Sadly, either sizing or the comfort of the helmet has changed because this thing is awful. I ordered Jul 2018 and rode through October. Just put it on for the first time this spring. It hasnt broken in or gotten any more comfortable and leaves an awful red mark on my forehead that lasts for 6+ hours. Such a disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great schooling Helmet! I bought this a few months back for everyday schooling and it's wonderful. The matte look is nice and you could probably use it for shows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the summer I bought this helmet due to the ridiculous heat this summer. Pretty attractive, good fit, fantastic value
Date published: 2018-07-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Light-weight I was considering much more expensive helmets but tried this one instead and am very pleased with it. It was comfortable with no pressure points right from the start. I ride in a very hot, humid place, but this helmet is well-vented. I can't rate the durability yet as I just purchased it.
