    Anyone use a Giro Advantage 2?

    Pros/cons?

    I'm going from an LG Rocket - want to get a different helmet that matches my team kit (shut up).

    My bike and helmet are blue.

    I've got one. Much less flimsy than the Rocket.

    Looks a bit bulbous though.

    I don't know that yours would be the same as the US version. I believe the EU helmets are lighter and have less padding. I could be wrong though. When/where did you get yours?

    Compared to the Rocket, I'm not sure anything can be called bulbous.
    FS: Fuji SL1 frameset, 55.5cm toptube, excellent condition.

    You are correct, but I actually have a US one - the 'Advantage 2' rather than the original, more aerodynamic 'Advantage' sold in Europe (though Advantage 2's do show up here too in some places - probably grey-market imports though).

    Got it in the US on the peso-value US dollar. And as it's fairly likely I'll be moving to the US in the not-too-distant future, so I figured I'd avoid any potential race marshal hassle and get myself a CSPC one.

    Just got one. Have not had a chance to try it out yet. My first aero helmet so I doubt I could give a quality review even after wearing it a while.

    I have one, wanted the Bell but the wait was too long. I fits well, ventilation sucks but I think that is true of all TT helmets
