Big off yesterday- which new road helmet.
Giro crash replacement relies on you having to pay RRP on the one you want, when I killed my last one it was significantly cheaper to buy another online.
Go with what fits with helmets, I tend to not spend too much these days, because I can’t afford to replace a dropped expensive one. I’ve got a Giro Foray MIPS at the moment, but it looks weird and is hot.
Fancy a Met Rivale next, had a Sine Thesis before and that was well comfy. (for me)Posted 9 months agoTiRedMember
Having written off a Giro Atmos and two Giro Air Attacks in the past two years (all with loss of consciousness, but no other immediate or lasting head injury), I now ride a Synthe for racing and another Atmos for general riding. If your head is Giro-shaped, and it’s done it’s job, replace with the same. The Synthe is very nice and has the same fitting as the Air Attack, just a little less “mushroom”. Very pleased with all aspects except price. Not bothered with MIPS.
Fit is the single most important property.Posted 9 months agojkomoMember
Managed to go OTB at speed yesterday- totally my fault. Helmet cracked, top ruined, shoulder blade busted and needs pinning.Posted 9 months ago
Anyway, may as well spend my time buying a new helmet. Was thinking Giro synthe, since it was a Giro helmet that prevented a big head injury- (bruise on head goes half way round skull), CT scan shows all is fine.
Synthe worth going 2017 and MIPS, or are the older models the same?
