Since 2004, the athletic brand Rapha has been slowly building a reputation as the coolest cycling company around. From bib-shorts, to skin suits, and sunglasses they’ve managed to produce some of the most stellar kits on the market today. Now, thanks to a partnership with Giro, they are finally making one of a cyclist’s most important pieces of equipment – the helmet.
Just as safe as it is attractive, this minimalist piece utilizes a Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) technology to keep riders secure during crashes, and a set of reflective straps for visibility on the road. For good ventilation on steep climbs and hot rides the helmet includes 17 external vents to keep air flowing across your scalp. Want an adjustable fit? Rapha and Giro decided to utilize the Roc Loc on this helmet, allowing you to tighten down the helmet after a haircut or easily adjust while on a ride. Make all of your riding buddies jealous for $270. [Purchase]
