Giro Aeon: 9.8 / 10
- Very light
- Great ventilation
- Good fit system
Giro Aeon's light weight, together with the Roc Loc 5 fit system, could very well make it the most comfortable helmet you've ever worn. It also comes in 3 sizes, ranging from 20 to 24.75 inches. That's way better than the universal size, and provides a better fit.
Earlier, Giro sold two top of the line helmets, the Ionos and Prolight. The Ionos was considered the best ventilated helmet, and the Prolight - the lightest. Giro Aeon's ventilation is as good as the Ionos, while being a few grams heavier than the Prolight. In other words, Aeon is lighter than the Ionos, and cooler than the Prolight.
The Aeon Helmet comes in several colors, as you can see below:

The Helmet is extremely well ventilated. It has 24 big vents, through which you'll have no problem scratching your head! Giro's Wind Tunnel channeled ventilation helps, so fresh air will keep moving around your head.
