Opinions on Stilo CF helmet?

I ran across this helmet and it just looks sweet! Anyone have any opinion on the feel/performance or is this puppy all show and no go? Due to the price, I may be drooling for quite awhile.



Stilo ST4 Carbon Fiber helmet
The ST4 helmet is made of carbon fiber and manufactured in an autoclave, giving it a lower weight than conventional designs. The aggressive design incorporates two outlets for a radio and a hydration system in an aerodynamic shape good for open-cockpit racing.

'13 McLaren MP4-12C, Azure Blue
'16 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, Nero Pegaso (black)

Unless you already have a neck brace spend the extra cash on that and get a regular helmet.

O/W cool helmet.

All torque, no traction...Exige S.

I have a question for the helmet experts.....Im looking to buy a helmet for autox use and im trying to figure out the size. my head measures in at a little less than 54cm. this makes it fall below the medium size range, I also where glasses so i need a little bit of extra space. Would a medium size helmet fit?

+1.

Or my usual hangout is HANS Device, Racing Helmets, Defnder, Schroth Harness, Corbeau Seats, Racing Seats. Linda there will help you out. Order a bunch of sizes/brands, then return the ones you don't need. No restocking fees.
