I'll let you know next week (just placed the order). I tried one on a couple weeks ago, but it was white and it's hard to consider anything that's white low-profile. It's also hard to consider any helmet aside from old leather football helmets low-profile. The Giro Revolver is certainly no low-end Pro-tec skate helmet, but it's far from being a hard-shelled beanie. Also check out the Smith Holt.

Yeah man, let me know what you think. Right now I'm leaning towards the shiv. I like the idea of the different foam thickness on both these helmets.

I tried on the Shiv and I looked like a SpaceBall, but it's a nice helmet. The Revolver shows up on Tuesday for a review.

Sorry about the delayed review (caught the flu). I think you already know what there is to know about it. Here's a pic to give you an idea of what it looks like while being worn with a pair of goggles:



It's shockingly comfortable and hardly noticeable. No slop and comes with a variety of tuning pads to adjust the fitment. I chose to wear the goggles strap inside. Goggles show are Anon Figments. The decals on there are just factory labels that I was too lazy to take off at the time. All the padding is removable including the ear pads and audio drops can be added later.
