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.

Giro Aeon Sizing

What's the consensus, bigger more comfort, tighter less comfort? My head is at the top range of the Medium at about 23". Giro Aeon sizing is M 21.75-23.25 and L 23.25 - 24.75. By the specs I should be good with a medium but the medium pinches a little around my temples. My head shape must be more ... Read More »
