Giro’s Aspect Road Helmet is one of those helmets that are designed for whatever cycling route you might want to take. The Aspect is very different to your usual cycling helmet – it is not heavy or hot, its retention system is quite solid, while the plastics are of very good quality. The Giro Aspect Helmet is incredibly light – it weighs only 242 grams, and has a removable Velcro-in visor, perfect for keeping the sun (or rain) out of your eyes.
The Aspect is very comfortable, and its RocLoc Air retention system has been praised by many cyclists by being one of the best they’ve experienced so far. The helmet’s side panels are rubberized which contributes to its durability. The Aspect’s interior and chin strap are Ultrasuede, and the helmet has the Roll Cage internal reinforcement. The helmet’s shell is made from In-Mold polycarbonate with EPS liner while sufficient ventilation is ensured thanks to 19 Wind Tunnel™ vents.
The Aspect Road helmet comes in three sizes – small (20”-21.75” / 51-55cm), medium (21.75”-23.25” / 55-59cm), and large (23.25”-24.75” / 59-63cm).
Eli Atkins from Giro says that the company “has always been a design brand”. “Every few years, we question what is happening on the market place. The Aspect Helmet is a great example of challenging the status quo”, Atkins adds. watch video below
