    try before you buy. I have a Rudy project which is uncomfortable on me but others swear by them. My Giro aero helmet is greaat and I swear by it

    Hi Gary,

    February's 220 had a review of this season's new helmets and the Specialized Echelon came out top. Mine came through last week. A snip at £37.99.

    I agree with trying before you buy, to make sure the fit is good.

    I have a Bell Ghisallo and a Giro, I think if you go with known manufacturers like Giro,Bell or Specialized and try them on , you can't really go wrong. Just get the best you can afford and like the look of.

    Rudy Project for me. Fits great and is comfortable.... looks good too.

    Bell sweep, marvellous, have had & liked METs before, could not get Giro to be comfortable until recently..Ionos fits in the shop , but not ridden in it.
