The coverage is practically faultless!
I found myself in the same position as Dan Heyworth not so long ago having to make the decision between two helmets. I kept hurting my neck from capsizing in my Strutter and the forces on the peak kept causing it to rotate exposing my forehead. As I was starting to push myself a little I decided a more creeking orientated helmet was in order and I tried quite a few lids regarding fit. I originally really wanted a Rocker but the sizing didn't work for me and I found it uncomfortable and the back of my head. At this point I looked elsewhere and found the Gedi. I haven't looked back. I personally have never used the visor to protect my face I have however used it when paddling into the sun late in the day when I couldn't see for the glare of the water. It fits MY head securely and I PERSONALLY find the coverage practically faultless. I recently received one of the biggest hits I've ever had with a helmet where I was front looped into a concrete wall after mucking up a hammer on a 12 foot drop. The impact was good enough to chip a fairly large chunk on concrete off the wall and onto my deck however I walked away with nothing but a sore neck. I'm happy this helmet will save my life and I've just ordered one for the girlfriend. My advice is this... IF you are looking for a helmet then give it a try; make your own mind up.... it comes in more size options than any other lid I know of and a good fit is (in my mind) one of the most important things when choosing a helmet?!
