Another comfort feature is the fantastic ErgoKnob Adjustable Dial which allows for the perfect fit by a simple clockwise (or counterclockwise) motion. It adjusts the plastic helmet to your head with a simple twist.

Bear in mind that some customers have reviewed this helmet as looking appearing rather large during use, so it may be best steering clear if think that would bother you.
