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…

One of the most eye-catching road helmets for 2012 is the Aeon from Giro, especially its super-bright yellow version. This new high-end racing bike helmet provides riders with maximum ventilation. While it offers minimal weight, comfort and fit are not compromised.

Applying various technologies, the makers of the Aeon were able to make it competitive enough to meet the strict performance standards. By establishing the shock-absorbing structure both inside and outside, the contact surface of the helmet with the head is reduced while allowing for more air volume.

Through a AEON SL Thermoformed Roll Cage, the helmet only weighs 190g. Great stability is maintained while internal reinforcement is made 49% lighter than usual composite reinforcements. For riders who enjoy catching attention in a race, wearing a 2012 Giro Aeon Road Helmet is one great way to do so.
