Description

A boxed white and silver Giro Advantage Race aero cycle helmet from the 2000s. These helmet features In-Mould construction which fuses the helmet's outer shell of polycarbonate with the impact absorbing EPS liner. The two materials are fused together, and one is reinforced by the other. The 'exoskeleton' allows Giro to engineer helmets that are lighter, and more durable.
