I technically still have a year (at least) on both of my helmets. So I feel like I should wait for the perfect option.
I got the highlighter yellow. I like hi vis lol. and its not very much yellow, so it should still match with all my kit.

Where do you get that deal? Real stuff or Chinese fakes?

Castelli has a HQ in Portland so they have sample sales, it's very good for the poor cyclists (aka me).

Mine arrived today. Fits really nice, and holds glasses really really well. Eyeshades are rock solid in this helmet, and Jawbreakers are great. Hi vis looks alright

Got mine today too. I'm not totally crazy on it, honestly. I'm contemplating returning it. Or passing it along to one of y'all for what I got it for, since it looks like they upped the price on them to $138 each!

I like the fit better than my older specialized helmet. I'm on the border between medium and large for almost all manufacturers, and the Specialized barely fits.

Climbed with the helmet today, was pretty nice. Adequate venting, holds glasses well, and looks great.

It's a nice helmet, upon closer inspection, it borrows some aspects from the air attack sans visor. Money well spent in my book.

It says $99.99 now, less than 2 hours after your post !

Edit. I didn't see the 20% discount. Never mind.

I love my Synthe! Super comfortable, holds glasses like a boss and quite nicely ventilated. Sometimes I forget I am wearing the thing which is a good thing. I didn't get any fancy colors, just the matte grey because I got different colored kit and grey matches better with it all without being black or white. I hope one day they might work out that helmet with the Koroyd like the Smith Helmets.

Got the email, but none of the items on their site reflect sale price.

Yup, got the goofed email update. Bummer they're already out of the micro dot jerseys. Still able to score a tiger kit.
