For the money you just can't complain. I can't afford to replace the Giro Xen after a crash saved my head but not the helmet. The only real difference is the Phase is bigger, has slightly less protection on the back of the head and is a fraction heavier. It looks just as sturdy though and I feel confident it will do the job and like I say for the money it's a total bargain.
I found the Phase a great helmet, light and simple. Having had the opportunity to try a friend's phase helmet before, I ordered right away when I found the great price Merlin Cycles was doing, it's worth twice as much at least!!
