Giro Aeon Review

Notices
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

Giro Aeon Review

Rode with the helmet this morning for the first time, a nice 15 miler or so. It felt great, very low and aerodynamic and the best thing of all, I didn't notice it was on. I think it looks sharp also. I didn't get to test out the actual part of saving the rider in an accident but I'm sure it'll happen someday. Especially in the heart of redneck kansas.

Don't know how it's aero dynamic if its got a bunch of holes in it. But yes it's awesome.

Even the coolest helmet looks dorky. Such is the price of safety.

Best fitting and feeling helmet I've had. The only downside is the strap adjustment slips some so every few rides, I have to re-tighten.
