Low-profile polycarbonate shell with a Coolmax-lined suspension. Large vent holes run the length of both sides in two rows. Elastic attachments in the front for a headlamp. The Magic is an incredibly comfortable helmet.

Low budget helmet. The main issue I have with it is the chin strap. Although the company states it's "universal".... it's not. Adults (like me) have difficulty getting the strap large enough to fit them without choking them. As a result, it's a great kids helmet.

I used to have one...
...but one warm day I was climbing a trad route on Mount Olympus, Greece. I put the Magic on the belay ledge and belayed the second, when we had to roll over the ropes I moved the helmet and it flyed to the void. My next helmet is an Ecrin Roc. For Magic: ugly, bad velcro regulating system, low ventilation. Also the headlamp fixing system is very bad. Only good thing is its price.
