Lightweight and Stylish

This helmet hits on almost all points... Lightweight, stylish, comfortable, durable paint, airflow, simple, etc... There are 2 slight areas for the Specialized helmet team to improve on in the future, cheek pad attachment points and the interaction between the cheek pad and the chin strap. Neither of these is a reason not to buy this helmet. When I picked up my helmet from the shop the first time I had to switch to a thinner cheek pad and in doing so the barbs in one of the female holes stripped out making it useless so I had to do an exchange. The chin strap on the other hand can have its placement improved since right now it is designed with typical stitching with folds, which happen to land exactly where the cheek pads contact the cheek pressing the stitching and doubled-up strap against my cheek. I am sure the Specialized team will fix these small issues with their next version and these issues should not dissuade you from buying this awesome helmet.

Lightweight champ

The helmet has a lot of ajustement and its incredibly light as well. It is howevr not the most padded and can fell a bit tight at the cheeks even with the smaller pads. I find its a great product that will please most people and that its one of the better options if you want a full face to do enduro riding.

Great fit and light weight

Absolutely love the fit of this helmet. Super light weight and good vents. I’ve tried a few different high end brands for FF enduro helmets and this is my new favorite. Only one complaint. The system to hold the cheek pads in place is super brittle. Mine broke the day I bought it. Luckily there’s two positions to mount them and I needed the ones that didn’t shatter. Hopefully they can start using a different plastic for these in the next run as I’m sure they’ve gotten plenty of feed back on this issue. But like I said. Best fitting enduro full face I’ve owned and I’ve had a bunch.

GREAT

Breathable, lightweight, no raddles or noises. Haven’t tested it yet on the ground nor do I want to. But so far great helmet.

I’ve tried the Fox and

I’ve tried the Fox and Troy Lee helmets, the Gambit just has a nicer fit and feels much lighter out on the trail. Had to use the thicker cheek pads to dial it in

Awesome, but ear pad clips break!

Helmet feels good, nice and airy. Adjustable and provides great protection... TBH the first one I had probably saved my life. Bought a second one when i cracked that one. My only gripe, the spot that you clip the earpad into is terrible and will become stripped or break. Forcing you to glue the pad in or try and hold it in place when putting the helmet on.

Lightweight, comfortable, fits large heads.

The Gambit helmet has a carbon shell so it is extremely lightweight. It's barely noticeable after a while. The ventilation is good and it does not obstruct hearing. It's good for long days when you need extra protection. I have a large head, and it fits comfortably.

Would Recommend?
Yes!

nice and light weight

This is a very nice and lightweight helmet! I mostly do trail riding - blues and blacks - and this keeps me protected. It is warmer than a half shell but not unbearable in summer heat and humidity in the Mid-Atlantic. The orchid color is awesome and I always get compliments. The only reason for four stars is that I have a small female head (53 cm) and the helmet in a size small is almost too large - I'd love to see an xs version. The placement of the chin strap around the ears can be a little bit difficult to make comfortable because there's a little interference with the cheek pads - but this is a minor inconvenience and not a big deal.
