Okay. Didn't really read all the later posts.
To the thread in general: So I bought a Pneumo over the weekend, on closeout since they've been discontinued. Yes, it costs way more than basic certified lid, but, simply put, it's more comfortable and fits better me. To me that's worth a hundred bucks. Tried on the Atmos and the Ionos, didn't fit as well.
Also, my previous Pneumo, which I got in '02, is still in great shape, I just replaced all the padding and the rocloc. Feels like new. The cheaper helmets I had in the past were partly glued together, and after a few years were toast.
Now has the foam 'degraded' over 7 years, decreasing safety?
