Strengths:    Extremely light and comfortable. Fit is great and it has a high amount of airflow to keep your head cool and dry.

Weaknesses:    What else? Cost. Do what most do and get it on sale.

Bottom Line:   
This is a superb helmet. Thankfully, I have not had to put it through a crash test yet but I've worn it for thousands of miles and the thing is wonderfully comfortable. As stated, it is extremely lightweight and offers great airflow. I can't complain one bit...

Strengths:    super lightweight, low profile, thin straps, venting, sunglasses fit in vents

Weaknesses:    expensive, thin padding

Bottom Line:   
best helmet I have ever used - hands down. It is super lightweight and looks amazing, but man is it expensive... try to find it on sale and you have a great helmet. I was worried the straps would be weak because they are so light and thin, but they do the job just fine. pads don't stink and wash up nicely, but could be a big thicker. Tons of color options too, my entire team uses these helmets for racing.

Strengths:    Very light, comfortable, fits great and has many adjustments. Well ventilated. Removable / replaceable padding that can be washed.

Weaknesses:    None that I have experienced.

Bottom Line:   
Best cycling helmet I have worn. I have had Bell helmets and othe Giro helmets, but the Aeon is my helmet of choice. After I strap it on and hit the road I forget that it is on, that is how comfortable and light it is.

Strengths:    It is good in all areas. The fit is excellent, it is feather light, and the ventilation is outstanding. The pads, unlike the Atmos, are ample and comfortable.

Weaknesses:    None...except price. I got mine at a significant discount and I'd suggest Ebay or waiting for a sale.

Bottom Line:   
Excellent helmet. Fit, padding, and ventilation are excellent. Most stores don't stock more expensive helmets so I ordered and returned the Bell Volt, Giro Atmos, and then this one. This is the best of the three.

Picked up a Giro Aeon off CL yesterday

Guy posted it for 175 4 weeks ago. I offered 120. He kept posting it every 2 days. I could feel the desperation. Offered 130 and he took it. New in box. This helmet is unreal with how light it is. Rode in with it today. Nicest helmet I have ever had.Read More »

Where is your Giro Aeon Helmet made ? China or Taiwan?

I am looking for a new helmet, and Aeon is on the top of my list. I have heard there are fake Aeons from China, and I also talked to a seller on the phone who claimed his Aeon is made in Taiwan. I know my current Giro Atmos (2008) has Made in China label on it. Those of you who own Aeon, ... Read More »
