What a well-designed helmet!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I have a Giro Pnuemo and the head strap not only wicks up the sweat, but directs it to drip off at the peak (front) of the helmet. Do you think that they designed it that way or did they just get lucky?

especially if you have your head tilted forward just a bit, I would guess. I've looked at that helmet and it looks really nice. My friend has the Atmos, which is even more expensive though it doesn't really look as though it's THAT much better.
