The sweat pads in my Montaro helmet were falling apart after months of heavy use (in Texas-it's hot, humid, and sweaty). The main pad no longer stuck to the Velcro attachment points. These new pads made the helmet like new again. And they seem to be improved (more robust construction) over the originals that came with the helmet and the warranty replacements that Giro sent me-but it's hard to say for certain.
Not a budget helmet, not an expensive helmet, but a great helmet! This thing has really good ventilation and is super light. I had a hard time finding a good helmet for my noggin due to a large ridge on the back of my skull. Most helmets weren't able to go down far enough below the ridge, but THIS helmet fit so well. Would recommend.
