Their Reputation Precedes Them
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
Having followed this brand on the moto side for a while I was surprised to see they made the jump into cycling. The Gun Wind Elegance helmet is the combination of aerodynamics, lightweight, durability, and ventilation that every company strives to achieve. It's breathes incredibly well when you're in the thick of a long climb on a summer day, and the weight makes it feel like you're not even wearing a helmet. The shape of the model allows you to descend without hearing a ton of noise from the vents as you would with some of the industries counterparts. It's the kind of helmet that are few an far between, hitting the nail on the head with bringing everything to the table that a cyclist needs in a proper helmet. It is after all the only piece of protective equipment we wear while riding. It's best to choose the best.
The helmet has more of a rounded shape to it as opposed to helmet like the Giro Synthe that has more of a ovaled shape. It's a true to size fit for me (a gentleman of 5'10" and a medium sized head), with room for a cycling cap for colder months.
Nice review. Thanks for the bit about sizing too. Very helpful!
