£209.99 With strik­ing looks, ef­fec­tive straps, comfy pads and MIPS pro­tec­tion, the Bell Z20 Aero seems to have plenty go­ing for it. But its weight of 281g is a touch high and, for such an aero-look­ing lid, it largely placed mid-ta­ble in the wind tun­nel (it was good at 45km/h with a 0° yaw an­gle), con­sis­tently scor­ing be­low the Spe­cial­ized and Giro, and of­ten not much more wind-cheat­ing than the £30 B’twin we tested as a road hel­met ex­am­ple. All of which makes us ques­tion its worth, es­pe­cially when vent­ing is com­pro­mised by the 10 small channels and the fi­nan­cial out­lay is over £200. zy­
