Not for an odd sized head.

I do not own the Elios, but I tried it on and considered it for almost an hour before opting to purchase another helmet.



I tried the size 2, but is was a bad fit. The adjustment went small enough for my little noggin, but then the helmet stuck out off of the back of my head REALLY far. I was afraid it would get caught in branches etc.

Then, I tried the size 1. Again, it was possible to adjust the suspension to fit my head, but this time it looked like I had a margarine tub on my head - it was just too small. I felt like there would not be very much side impact protection either, and it just wasn't very comfortable. The foam liner is hard and bumpy. I couldn't see wearing this helmet for a short tree climb let alone a long day on rock.



I passed on the Elios and purchased a small Grivel Salamander - much better fit, simpler adjustment, and better coverage.
