Great Helmet for the Price
I've had several helmets but this is really nice if you are not looking to spend hundreds of dollars. I ordered the Navy Blue and it's quite dark but very nice looking and fits well..

Lightweight and Comfortable
This helmet is a replacement for another brand that looks very similar but this one is lighter and has a lower profile so it doesn't look like a bowling ball on your head. Great ventilation too.

Nice helmet
The Ovation is comfortable to wear and lightweight. Being a backyard horsewoman and no longer in competition, I did not see anyone wearing this helmet before I bought it. While I am satisfied with it, I do not care for the profile, but that's just personal preference.

Good helmet for hot weather riding
I have been using this helmet for many years. It has great ventilation that does not depend on fast gaits to get an air stream through it. It also has the manufacture date on a tag inside. That is important to know as helmets degrade over time. If kept in hot environments, they have to be replaced every 2 years whether damaged or not..

Light with good ventilation, attractive

Safe again
Just replaced my old helmet because of a fall. It fits well, is easy to adjust, and the price is right!

Lightweight, Streamlined, and Comfy
I've had this helmet about a year now, and it's great. Measure your head to get the right size, don't just guess. Go by the guide. I would say if you have a round head this would probably work better for you than someone with a more oval head.Very lightweight with lots of ventilation in the summer. I don't get nearly as sweaty as I did in my old Troxel. I've hand washed the liner countless times and it always comes out fresh and soft/comfortable as ever. I like the neck protection and adjustability features.As for the look of the helmet, it's a bit more streamlined than some other helmets. You don't get that mushroom head look, but you still look as though you are wearing a helmet. A helmet can only be so 'low profile' while still being protective. This is, however, one of the better options out there for someone who doesn't really like wearing a helmet because of the weight or look.

round
If you have a large round head it will work. Do not listen to the reviews who say exsm/sm is is to small, my head measured 21.5 inches and the small extra small was tooooo big and it was round my head is not round. Room on side of the head could fit my hand up there.

Comfort: 1

Love the Ovation helmets. I had the Protégé in metallic and it was time to upgrade so got the same style just in matte this time. Super lightweight and great fit. We got on all day (8+ hour) trail rides and this helmet stays comfortable the entire time!

Hello there!
My nephew's head measurements are 24" (snug). That would be an XL. So I picked this helmet.

Style, price, lightweight, colors, lots of ventilation, good reviews. I'm on the border of S/M and M/L, so I went with the M/L in Amethyst. We'll see how it fits when it arrives.

Which helmet is the coolest to wear? Under $150? I sweat so much it is dripping down my face and into my eyes!
Erna G on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Any vented schooling helmet is a miracle of coolness after the velvet show helmets that used to be all that was available. Also, the lighter the color, the cooler it will be.
I personally prefer the Troxel helmet models which have the "Air-Channel Technology." This is extra venting that prevents the helmet from "suctioning" to your head. Both the Troxel Liberty & Dakota have this feature in some lighter colors if you'd like to take a look:
And I'm sure other people will also chime in with their favorites!

Is the size of the helmet based on when it's all the way adjusted tight or as large as it can go?

BEST ANSWER: The smallest setting will be about a large and the biggest setting will be the size of an xl if the helmet is an l/xl.
How do I know what size in helmets to buy?
A shopper on Feb 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I went to a tack shop and tried it on & then bought it here for a much better price! I've had lots of helmets, but this is by far my favorite one. So comfortable! I love the dial feature. Also, if you cannot try one on at a tack shop you can measure your head & go to ovation's website and read the sizing charts.
My head measures 22 1/2, which is size 7 1/8. Should I buy a Small/medium or a Medium/Large?
Joyce C on Oct 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is hard to say sight unseen. First make sure you are measuring the circumference of your head about 1/2" above your eyebrows. If that is still 22 1/2" you are correct that you are at the top edge of the Small/Medium and the low edge of the Medium/Large. Generally adults prefer to "size up." Keep in mind this helmet is adjustable. If you can't quite dial the Medium/Large down small enough, you can always add a headband or bandana to take up a little space. For the Small/Medium there would be no way to make it a little larger if it felt tight. Sometimes people buy both sizes & plan to return the one that doesn't fit; perhaps that would be an option for you.
hi i wear 6 7/8 is that sm or sxs ?
juanita on Jul 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I wear 6 7/8 also, & a small is just a little loose unless I tuck my long hair up under my helmet. Also the back comes down far enough that it interferes with my ponytail. Good ventilation, though! Especially helps in extreme TX summer heat. I don't know if XS would be too tight (maybe depending on how thick your hair is). Hope that helps!
My daughter has a Troxel size small that fits perfect and she's 11, which size should i go with? I was going to move her up to a medium in that brand and the large is ridiculously huge!
Kristin K on Dec 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Here is the sizing information for this Ovation helmet to help you decide. The inch-measurements are for head circumference:

Sizes:
XSmall/Small: 6 3/8 to 6 3/4 (19.5' to 21")
Small/Medium: 6 3/4 to 7 1/8 (21" to 22.5")
Medium/Large: 7 1/8 - 7 1/4 (22.5" to 23")
Large/XLarge: 7 1/4 - 7 5/8 (23" to 24.5")
XL is how many cm or inches..?
