Designing and building the best road cycling helmet takes input from world-class engineers, designers and athletes. Giro has all three at its disposal, and their work has produced the new Giro Synthe.
The Synthe is a synthesis of aerodynamics, light weight and a comfortable fit and feel on hot days. Aero helmets are easy to make, but can they be comfortable on 90+ degree days? Light helmets can be easy to build, too. But can they fit well? The Synthe answers "yes" to all those questions.
At only 250 grams in a Medium, the Synthe is a featherweight among pro-level road cycling helmets, allowing the rider to simply forget they're wearing it. The Wind Tunnel internal venting was carefully sculpted to bring air into the helmet and back out again easily on hot days. Giro's Roc Loc Air adjustable fit system makes the helmet float slightly off the top of the wearer's head, allowing for better air flow. A one-hand twist-knob is more convenient while on the bike. Meshwork on the helmet's sides allows the air to flow more smoothly around the rider's head at high speeds but can still let excess heat to escape while climbing at slower speeds. The large holes at the leading edge of the helmet are a clever "garage" for sunglasses.
