Which to buy or not to buy
To protec my scull
How conspicuously do you want to consume?
I am interested in this. I get a new helmet most years due to style considerations. Budget is typically infinity.
Here’s what I liked: giro atmos and aeon
What I didn’t like: lazer z1
I would like to buy giro again but I was on team boycott for guns
If you like the Aeon, I’d recommend the Giro Synthe. It feels to me like the right and proper successor to the Aeon
Fan of the Giro Synthe as well. Look around and you can sometimes find good end of season deals on them, think mine was ~$100 off retail.
What’s the hippest most stylish helmet? @Patch said sweet and smith.
Am I still supposed to boycott giro?
I really like this hamlet
probably not going to win the style awards, but I have the mid-range Specter WaveCel helmet from Bontrager and it’s pretty comfy and supposedly pretty good at absorbing crash damage
i buy mavic helmets because they are cheap af on competitive cyclist and fit my skull
I really really love my Spesh Airnet.
Whatever comes in bright pink.
ye i got them packing foam wavecel jawnz too but it is yuge compared to my kask/giro hamlets of yestore-year
this jawn got me tempted
I’m so often between m and l tho. my medium airnet is perfect except for a thin buff or whatever being the max i can fit under it.
an old scott wit-r i got on megacloseout was the best thing ever but its so long dead and my airnet is like 3+ years old now and has a lot of miles on it.
I think I’m going with this in large blue
So they divested on guns but are still focusing on ammo?
" As the company now looks forward, the focus is on ammunition, hunting and shooting accessories, hydration bottles and packs, outdoor cooking products, and cycling/ski helmets and accessories."
Dunno. The sale of Savage was enough to get REI and EMC placing orders again.
I leave boycotting a well-established brand because their holding company has some questionable interests to others.
