RAPHA HEL­MET

Urban Cyclist - - Gear On Test - www.rapha.cc

With many Rapha of­fer­ings, it’s ap­pro­pri­ate to sim­ply sus­pend be­lief when it comes to the RRP. And so it is with the Lon­don out­fit’s en­try into the world of hel­mets… but what an en­try. In short, this is one of the finest hel­mets we’ve tested. It’s based on Giro’s Syn­the and as such fea­tures cut­ting-edge MIPS tech­nol­ogy, which tri­als have shown re­duces ro­ta­tional forces at cer­tain im­pacts. Thank­fully, we didn’t have to put those claims to the test. What was more tan­gi­ble came in the form of the Roc Loc Air Fit sys­tem that pro­vides the most com­fort­able hel­met we’ve worn. It’s also well vented for sum­mer so­journs and ac­tu­ally looks far more stealth-like and er­gonomic than many lids on the mar­ket. That might not be your num­ber one pri­or­ity but, again, it adds to the com­fort.
