anon. Prime Helmet review. OnTheSnow reviewed this helmet as part of its 2016/2017 Helmet Buyers' Guide.


Favorite Features: The Prime gives you customizable airflow via 23 vents. Aside from the sharp design, this helmet provides the latest in safety technology with the MIPS system. For those who like their hills alive with the sound of music, the Prime provides audio compatible ear pads.


Room for Improvement: We’re not big fans of the plastic goggle retainer, which could prove to be a durability issue after a few seasons of use.
