As a roadie I’m always on the lookout for my next frivolous purchase. I like my helmet, a Bell Slant, but it’s going on 6 or 7 years now and the padding on the forehead is completely worn thin. Can’t find replacement mesh, tried a headband and didn’t like it. Thing I love about this helmet is its snug fit, it seems like almost every other brand is like a salad bowl on my head; I guess my head is more oval and most bike helmets are round?
The latest trends in road cycling fash are more rounded aero-style helmets (though not quite full aero which become too hot in the sun).
Giro helmets seem to fit a bit too round on my head.
Also like the look of the Giant Rivet.
