Giro Aspect Helmet

Seems to be the helmets are getting some good design – finally – and the Giro Aspect is one such helmet (along with the recent helmet from Smith Optics). What I really like and was genuinely surprised about was the high value design approach, it was much more sophisticated than I was expecting and not a wind tunnel in sight! That isn’t to say wind tunnel tests aren’t important but, it shouldn’t be the driving factor in the aesthetic department. The Aspect is one of the first helmets I’ve seen in some time that I actually want to wear. Good work Giro!

    I swear I’m not scraping your content! Just published a post on this myself. Definitely digging the design. Will be interested to see if Giro will address implementing MIPS technology soon. The Aspect, considering the amount of R&D that went into it, would’ve been the perfect candidate.
