Review for Giro Advantage 2 Helmet – 2016
Year-in and year-out, the world’s best riders turn to the Advantage 2 when every second counts. With more than a decade of wind tunnel testing and a list of victories from the Olympics, to Ironman, to the Tour de France, it has proven time and again to be at the pinnacle of aerodynamic performance. And with deeply channeled ventilation and a fully adjustable fit system, it’s cool and comfortable enough to go the distance. Wind tunnel-aided design In-Mold polycarbonate shell with EPS liner – The In-Mold construction process permanently fuses a light-yet-durable outer shell with the helmet’s impact-absorbing EPS foam liner, enhancing the strength of both parts. This fusion process reinforces areas around vents and ribs, creating a one-piece exoskeleton that allows the helmet to be lighter, more durable, and better ventilated than helmets with shells that are fastened or adhered to the liner. Roc Loc 5 Fit System – The industry benchmark in comfort, stability adjustability and weight savings. In addition to enhancing the fit and comfort of helmets, Roc Loc 5 allows you to easily custom tune the fit tension and the fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds using a single hand. and it’s almost 40% lighter than comparable systems too, making it the ultimate in skull-hugging luxury. 5 Vents, Internal Channeling S – 20″-21.75″ / 51-55cm M – 21.75″-23.25″/55-59 cm L – 23.25″-24.75″ / 59-63cm IN-MOLD CONSTRUCTION In-mold construction fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet’s impact-absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows us to sculpt better ventilation systems, so In-mold helmets can be lighter and cooler than traditional helmets.
