You made a good entry-level choice. I'm not a fan of polycarbonate-only shells; but it should do fine for you. I would strongly suggest that if you ever crash it hard that you take advantage of the crash replacement policy. Do not take chances with poly.

I wore the carbon Bravo for the last two seasons and liked it a lot. I recently retired it for the new Strike, which feels nearly as light and fits my melon better.

i got one, i think its the full comp, i like it. it does its job and its not to exspensive. It gets hot but if your using it for donwhill just take it off going uphill. (i assume you riding a gondola up)

question is, why would you buy it then ask for opinions?

i have a 661 strike, but i can't really comment on the full comp.

I have one of the comps also. It looks so freaking huge compared to the new strikes and especially with it on on my small frame...
