Pretty excited about this helmet
http://www.roadbikeaction.com/Features/ ... thing.html
The claimed weight of 198 grams is surprising to me, but yet again, technology never ceases to amaze me. I wonder if the final weight will be beefed up due to American standards (whether correct or not is open to debate for another thread).
In short, this helmet may be my next commuting helmet. Why only commuting and not race? I have no response currently; only time will tell.
They fit a round shaped head from what I can gather assuming they a modelled round the similar shaped head.
High visibility is certainly important for POC. I like the design, organic and sharp at the same time.
The helmet fits me very well, I usually ride a Catlike but have no problem with Giro or other popular brands. It is a bit confusing if they are offering two sizes, the one i tried was 54-60. The catalogue mention two sizes I think.
BTW: There is a color named "Garminum" on the helmets for 2014.

oy, 225 pound sterling, that's more than 250 euro!
I wanted to buy it, but I think I'll keep my Argyle Giro Aeon if I won't find some ebay deals under 200 euro
