Anyone wear a women's helmet?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Well got my helmet. Fits great! 275g for medium...a $250 Synthe MIPS is 270g. $30 compared to $120 for the "men's" helmet. Only differences are the color schema, it says "womens series" on the side, and the rear adjustment dial thing seems to be roomier for ponytails.

The slope gets slipperier and slipperier

I would appreciate that cuz my big man-hands have a hard time making that adjustment while riding with most of my helmets
