Just the job!

Great price and lightning delivery (we're just down the road in CO).

I've been slow to acquire head protection. Regular road biking helmets are far too over-the-top, self-consciously stylish for my needs. Apart from not wishing to look like something from Alien about to arm wrestle Sigourney Weaver, I don't have the obligatory Spandex gear that seems to be an obligatory accessory, even if you're only going to the grocery store. And helmet prices! Don't get me started! A quick recce of the local branch of the backwoods frou-frou latte equipment supplier left me gasping for air.

This helmet from Giro is just fine for my needs. It's solidly constructed, fits well, and inspires confidence. Plus, if your head is anywhere near the size ordered, you can customize the fit with the enclosed sets of thick an thin foam pads. As someone pointed out, this is the type of noggin enclosure long advocated by Consumer Reports.

Might get hot in the Colorado summer, but who cares? This helmet and a worn T-shirt could get me mistaken for a rock climber.
