    Thumbs up or down? If there's still room to wear regular rx glasses underneath I may try it...

    That picture of LA is revolting. And that's even before taking in the hideous cat scratch fever humpback of his beauteous form on the bike.

    Perfectly butterflied cheeks in a worst-case scenario?

    If I wear my helmet like a yamaka will the shades still work? I think not, so thumbs down!

    I have fallen hard for the Air Attack. I think I'll save my cash for the time being.

    Interesting to see that someone out there is trying to create a trend. How long do you think it will take for everyone to jump on board?

    So what happens in a crash? Does the lower edge of the visor retract quickly and smoothly enough to avoid putting a huge gash in your nose?

    I don't plan on being a test dummy for that product.

    +1. That would be my biggest fear with that helmet.

    Not to mention the bike snobs of the world laughing at me at the start line.

    Also a venerable points. I mean, seriously, is it just a budget-minded way to look pro? And even then, when do any pros wear anything with an integrated eye shield? During time trials. And that sure isn't a time trial helmet.

    It's like fighter pilot met cyclist and came up with a kind of tatty idea.
