Feathery, comfy and stylish. Giro proves that a light helmet can also mean a comfortable and good looking one with their new Prolight
Since the helmets have become mandatory in pro road cycling, helmet companies have been driven to make helmets lighter and just overall better than ever before. Giro has continued to push the envelop by introducing their new Prolight helmet. At 195 grams, it is the lightest helmet on the market. After hours in the saddle, the 50-100 gram weight savings from other high-end helmets, Prolight is barely noticeable perched atop your dome.
But light doesn’t always mean comfortable, but in the case of the Prolight, Giro utilized old technology in a new way. With Roc-Lock SL, the Roc-lock system (that keeps the helmet snug on your head) utilizes a pair of plastic supports joined together by an elastic strap. This feature cuts back a little on overall adjustment but still offers 3 circumference adjustment points, still doing its job particularly well.
Even if you are not in the Tour de France Peloton, the Prolight is a great helmet for those riders looking for the latest in lightweight helmet technology. It feels super stable even on super technical mountain bike rides. It would be great for an endurance athlete who is constantly having neck issues during long rides and races.
