Giro has released one of the most exciting commuter helmets for 2012 called Reverb. It was the intention of Giro not to make the helmet flashy by not packing it with so many features. Instead, the Reverb is designed to be an understated and well-functioning helmet.

Reverb is quite different from classic helmet peaks with its removable fabric peak, which is such a clever feature. The removable fabric peak is positioned inside the rim of the helmet with Velcro tabs holding it in position. Its brim is similar to that of a traditional-style cycle cap and is removable for washing.

While it looks like the rider is wearing a cap under the helmet, it shades the eyes and keeps the rain away without the added mass. Simple but cleverly designed, the 2012 Giro Reverb Commuter Helmet is a must-have helmet for all riders who want a helmet that simply…

Whyte offers high-speed stability and slow-speed maneuverability with its very stylish hybrid road bike released for 2011 called Cambridge. The high-speed stability is achieved through its long wheelbase and relaxed head angle while the slow-speed maneuverability is offered by its shorter stem.

Its carbon front fork improves ride quality and absorbs road vibrations.

Superb and versatile, the 2011 Whyte Cambridge Commuter Road Bike tackles general riding, fast commuting, and fitness very well. While puncture resistant Maxxis Detonator tires made the bike superbly durable, the uniquely profiled rear stays offer outstanding comfort and responsiveness.

Released for 2011 is a road-commuter’s tire from Panaracer called Ribmo. Along with the Kevlar-belted PT Puncture Resistant Technology is the All Contact Tread Shape, which pertains to the oblong-ish profile of the tire.

With such an unconventional design, the tire can accomplish four things. These include smooth and predictable transition from center to side, maintained contact with the tread, reduced tread cuts through the elongated sidewall surface, and a unique shape that caters to all riders and riding styles.

While the 2011 Panaracer Ribmo PT Commuter Tire seems to be innovative, it has some downsides. Since the tire tends to sketch, dive, surf, and drift erratically on variable riding surfaces, it does not tackle ice, snow, muck, mud, and dirt well.
