During my discussion with Bell at Interbike, I mentioned that the average consumer with any amount of eye for style or design, doesn’t really care about how aero their helmets are. We, if I may be so bold, would rather a helmet look good, keep us cold and protect our lives. Sometimes, however, style and aerodynamics overlap. In my opinion, that’s what the Bell New Star Pro is. An aero helmet with style…
With an innovative, closable “vent” system, these helmets not only offer aerodynamics, but I’d like to think, additional warmth during cold seasons.

The John Boultbee label within the Brooks England product line offers unique color combinations to classic models. Both apparel and accessories, like this special edition Carrera folding helmet. This helmet is available in a plethora of colors, but let’s be honest, black on black looks sick.

I know well enough than to spark a helmet debate online and that’s not my intention here. All I want to do is share one man’s story about how a helmet saved his life. A few years back, Andy White from FYXO was on a ride, in his backyard, on a familiar road when he fell.
You’ve got to head over to FYXO for the full scoop… and ride safe out there!
I’ve yet to venture into the world of full-face protection, but the new Bell Super 2R helmet would be the one I’d pick up when the time calls. Why? As illustrated above, this helmet is more versatile than any other helmet, ATMO.
While climbing, you can remove the chinbar with one simple snap. Simply strap it to your pack, then when it’s time to descend, you can put it back on. Or if you’re traveling and will be hitting trails that don’t require as much protection, simply leave the chinbar at home that day.
Personally, I’m most stoked on the “coffee shop lock” possibilities…
Available in MIPS and non-MIPS, as well as a whole spectrum of colors. See more at Bell.
This is a game-changer for sure. MIPS’ slip plane technology is backed by science and is changing the helmet market. Giro noted this early on and began working with MIPS on new helmets for late fall 2014…
“Giro Sport Design has announced a new partnership with MIPS Technologies. After years of collaboration researching and validating new technologies to further reduce impact energy, Giro will introduce new helmets in three key categories (Road, Mountain and Urban) that employ Multidirectional Impact Protection System (MIPS) slip plane technology. The Sutton MIPS, Feature MIPS, Feather MIPS, Savant MIPS and Sonnet MIPS will be available worldwide in late fall 2014.”

Aero is the new black. Personally, I couldn’t care less about aerodynamics. I’m more interested in a stylish helmet. The Synthe is just that. See the full press-release below, along with more photos. Sign me up for that all-black model!
The Color Dipped Collection continues at Specialized, with a bright, neon blue treatment. Last month’s Chartreuse came and went, leaving this blue and what appears to be a neon red for June and July.
See June’s offerings below and head to your local Specialized store for ordering.
To keep your summer bright for the next three months, Specialized will be offering a “Color Dipped Collection“, featuring three products, all washed with the same color. The first month being chartreuse and I’m guessing a blue and a bright red or orange will follow.
See the full offering below and head to your local Specialized shop to order this limited edition set.
This is perhaps one of the most beautiful cycling videos I’ve seen all year and it doesn’t hurt to have such great people in it! Juliet Elliott and Dave Noakes and got to ride in Talamona, a small town in the heart of the Italian Alps, where Met is based.
ICEdot was at Frostbike and while I didn’t spend a whole lot of time looking at it, it caught my attention. I ride by myself almost always, as I’m sure most of you do too. What’s your take on this?
