The minute the Giro Synthe hit the streets I wanted it with every ounce of my helmet wearing being. I had just picked up the POC Octal about a month before the Synthe was released last year. I needed a new helmet since my run in with a car took my AEON out, but couldn’t wait any longer and decided on the VERY solid Octal (also highly recommended).
There’s something about the Synthe that tickles my fancy… and a must buy if you’re in the market for a riding dome cover. I was going to wait a few weeks before doing a review on the Synthe but can’t hold it in. I’ve only ridden with it this week and I’M IN LOVE!!
Light, compact, style points, functional, and comfortable are a few words that describe the Giro Synthe. You know Giro did something right when a very large amount of cycling teams suit up with the Synthe. It’s a beautiful thing the Synthe is. I mean… I could go on, and on, and on, but I’ll let Giro speak for themselves:
THE SYNTHE™ IS THE PINNACLE OF ROAD HELMET DESIGN, COMBINING THE PERFORMANCE GAINS OF AERO EFFICIENCY AND LIGHT WEIGHT WITH GREAT COOLING POWER TO ENHANCE RIDER COMFORT AND EFFICIENCY.
There you go! Go to Giro and scope more info. I promise if you pick this up you won’t be disappointed that you did.
