The visor saves this helmet (though you have to buy it yourself)

Chances are the Kestrel Carbon will be one of the lightest helmets you've ever used, but for the price, there are helmets that are cheaper with better airflow around the same weight. I use this helmet alongside the HJC RPHA-10 and if you've used the RPHA-10, this helmet is only marginally lighter (its barely noticeable) despite being a carbon fiber helmet. The airflow on the RPHA-10 is much better all around compared to the Kestrel.
While the upper vents work fine on the Kestrel, the bottom vent leaves a little to be desired. Even when moving at moderate speeds (20-30mphish) the bottom vent doesn't flow as much air and you'll still be able to feel the warmth of your breath (this is with the breath deflector removed).
Luckily the thing that saves this helmet is the visor. If you get this helmet or any other Lazer helmet, get the photochromic visor. Is it that amazing? Yes it is. The optical quality is where this helmet shines. There are times where I'll be walking around inside and I won't realize the visor is down because the optical quality is so clear. That is, I won't realize the visor is down until it starts getting stuffy in the helmet. If the Lazer line didn't have the visor, I would consider buying a different line of helmets, but because it does it makes me consider getting another Lazer Helmet in the future. I've put about 800 miles on the bike now with this helmet and while it's not the one I always grab, it's the one I'll grab on a nice day because while you're riding, it'll give you a few similar to having no visor at all.
Yes, I recommend this product.
