Giro Aeon Road Bike Helmet

I am almost embarrassed to admit how many bike helmets I own (eight in all). However, I ride all year long and in all sorts of weather. I have two cross-country skiing helmets for winter riding, a couple of mountain biking helmets, one that I keep my high-powered headlights on for night riding, one hi-viz helmet for riding on cold days with limited visibility, and a few others. My latest helmet purchase was a Giro Aeon Road Bike Helmet and this helmet is perfect for hot, sunny days!

There are three things that make this helmet my favorite for summer riding: it is lightweight, cool and is available in hi-vis yellow.

Lightweight. When I picked up this helmet at the local bike shop I first thought the sack they gave me was empty! It felt like the box the helmet came in weighed more than the helmet itself. This helmet is available in three sizes (S, M, L) and the medium-sized helmet only weighs 222 grams. When you get off your bike after a long ride it is really easy to forget that you still have a helmet on!

Cool. This helmet has 24 Wind Tunnel™ vents with internal channeling—I’ve never had a cooler helmet! I’ve been out on days when the heat index was well over 100 degrees and have never felt like the helmet was heating up my head (as long as I was moving).

Hi-Viz Yellow: While the other features of this helmet are great, I wouldn’t have bought this except for the fact it is available in a bright hi-vis yellow (it also comes in seven other colors as well). This Hi-Vis Yellow helmet matches my Hi-Vis Yellow Pearl Izumi Attack Short Sleeve Jersey perfectly. Since I spend a lot of time riding on riding on busy roads I prefer Hi-Vis Yellow clothing in the summer, but bright red in the winter when there is snow on the ground.

The Giro Aeon Road Bike Helmet retails for around $250 and if your local bike shop does not have it in stock they can order it for you. This is definitely a “high ticket” item and it has a decent mark-up so don’t be afraid to ask your local bike shop for a discount (I did and it saved me 10%).
