Some helmet manufactures seems to make better helmets than others. I really like the fit of Giro’s Atmos and Ionos. POC Octal is really cool and sits well on my head but is a bit too big. And the latest, Specialized S-Works Prevail.

For me not sponsored by a team getting a helmet for road biking white is always right. On mtb I will use my yellow Mavic Notch except when it’s too warm or racing XCO/M.
