2011 Giro Ionos

It has 21 vents, and 8 colour combinations and one big price tag.
It looks good except when I put it on my head and it becomes this enormous cradle around my cranium. Acutally it looks ridiculous.
Giro claims it's their most advanced road helmet and it has what it calls 'wind tunnel' ventilation. But I don't agree, it's no cooler than my five year old Limar, and it has the same number of vents.
On the positive side, the new improved Rock-loc 5 works well and is easy to use. Although the dial is teeny, compared to the rest of the helmet.
I suspect the autographed version by the seven-time TdF champ has something to do with the $300 price tag, but at half the price it's still a questionable purchase.

  1. We should always use road helmet when we go to cycling. We can prevent any kind of head injury by using it. It’s truly helpful for all cyclists.
