Giro G10 Peter Olenick Pro
Giro $140
Giro is heading in the art- and personality-driven direction this year with a solid line of pro athlete-inspired designs. Gretchen Bleiler, Risto Mattila, Antti Autti, Andy Finch and Peter Olenick are all on the roster and each had the opportunity to design a helmet the way he or she wanted. Giro has been in the game long enough to have its G10 helmet so dialed in terms of technical protection and general style that we don’t even need to discuss it. The major change is the graphics, and for this year’s model, Peter Olenick decided that a blood-red city-scape on a generally white helmet would fit his style best. “I’ve never seen a white helmet I liked before so I went with that,” he explains. “Red is my favorite color and I thought they went together pretty well.” The pro model helmet concept will soon be used in Giro’s goggles, so look for a matching helmet and goggle combo from the company in the near future.

Head Pro
Head $80
Head has made big steps this year in the helmet department, specifically in terms of style. This year’s Pro series exemplifies this trend. The helmet pictured here comes with a stencil so you can tag Head logos all over the place. Technically, the helmet comes with big, comfy ear protectors, a removable and washable liner, and vent plugs to keep your head dry when it starts raining.
