Purchase: I bought the Charles Owen JR8 helmet about 2 years ago, and it quickly came to its end! I didn't like the fit of the JR8. It was uncomfortable and the buckle was not accommodating. I bought the GR8 from Smartpak as a Christmas present. I paid about $240.00, give or take a few dollars!
Likes: I love the fit. It is comfortable and very nice looking. I love the clasp/buckle strap. It is soft and secure. The sizes are very accurate. My old helmet gave me a constant headache, but this GR8 makes riding comfortable and headache free! I love the style and I love how you can adjust the back with the tie. It allows you to fit your helmet with your hair up or down.
Dislikes: I honestly love everything about this helmet! There is nothing to dislike. Get a size according to whether you wear your hair up or down. I personally disinfect my helmet after every ride. I use the spray which helps keeps my helmet feeling fresh, clean, and new! Also, once a month I air mine out just to allow the panels to breathe.
Quality: The inner panels are very soft and firm, yet comfortable and very secure. It allows your head to breathe.
Summary: I love my helmet! It is so comfortable and I feel secure and safe. A riders helmet is the most important thing, and it is VERY important to ride with a helmet that is comfortable and very classy looking.
Usefulness Rating: 2.6 out of 5.
