I am considering the purchase of a Bell Variant to replace my Bell Citi, which does not fit me very well. I have three questions:
1. This helmet is marketed as a mountain bike helmet--should that be ANY reason for me not to get it, since I will be commuting on fairly busy city streets with it? Outside of the aerodynamics of a helmet and the helmet's venting, I am not sure I quite understand how a helmet could be considered a mountain vs. a road bike helmet.
2. This helmet has 24 vents--the more vents a bike has, the less foam for protection. I am really interested in this helmet for two reasons: It has a compact, rounded shape and it comes down pretty low on the head. Should I be worried or concerned that i won't be getting the best protection b/c the helmet is highly vented?
3. Does anyone have this helmet? If so, how do you like it?
Thanks for your help!
