If you are going on the flat all day without a lot of wind, it is great. But if you are going downhill and think you might get up to 20 mph, it becomes a pain. It really effects your aerodynamics when going downhill. I had to tilt my head quite far forward to make it so the air went over the top of it rather than the huge brim acting as a parachute and slowing me down while also being a bit unsafe. On windy days, especially gusty ones, it acted like a sail and get me momentarily off balance. I loved it when going on the flats and knowing the ride was flat all day. But on days that included hills, I strapped it on the back of my rack for more visibility. In my 100 days going from Lisbon to Trieste, I probably only used it as a brim for 10-12 days, the rest of the time it was strapped over the stuff on my rear rack to improve visibility. I probably won't bring it again unless the route is very flat.
