Bicycling (South Africa) - - GEAR -

The de­sign ob­jec­tives for the Giro Vanquish were sim­ple: cre­ate a hel­met with good ven­ti­la­tion, im­proved aero­dy­nam­ics, and a comfy fit. Giro also wanted the hel­met to in­cor­po­rate a MIPS unit with­out al­ter­ing the fit. And it works very, very well. The pro­gres­sive de­sign has also po­si­tioned it more as an ev­ery­day choice than just an event-spe­cific hel­met – it can be used for all types of rid­ing. Giro worked with pro ath­letes such as Alexan­der Kristoff to get the real-world data to val­i­date its aero­dy­namic claims. ² Weight: 305g (355g with lens) ² Price: R4 500
