Cyclists, it’s time to upgrade your helmet to one that is insanely lightweight but also incredibly safe. Giro’s new helmet, the Aries, has earned the #1 ranking from Virginia Tech labs for injury risk reduction, thanks to its ball-and-socket Spherical technology that uses two EPS shells with full 360-degree movement to absorb impact while still cushioning your head.
Despite being dual-layered, however, the helmet weighs just over 300 grams, made using a translucent shatter-proof polymer that is wonderfully tough without adding heft or bulk to the helmet. Not only does it offer a low volume design, but the front vents and large 20+mm exhaust ports offer impressive cooling so you’ll never overheat even on the hottest summer days.
By reducing the number of internal pads to just two (one on the crown, the other at the brow), it improves airflow and prevents moisture from building up. It’s a premium helmet you’ll absolutely be glad to use anytime you hit the streets or mountain trails.
