Cannondale produced the CAAD10 of helmets in terms of value and performance with the Teramo helmet, which even dawns an aluminum exoskeleton. It is only fitting that Cannondale starts making more gear and clothing to compliment their great line of bikes.
This is Cannondale’s first crack at their own helmet design. After spending some time wearing the Teramo on training rides, my first thought is that it is actually a great looking helmet and is very light. At $110.00 it has the same features of helmets costing much more.
The fit is very comfortable and it is easy to adjust the tension by twisting the SI micro adjust on the back of the helmet. The padding is comfortable and minimal and wicks the sweat away. The straps are easy to adjust and fit well.
The ventilation of the Teramo is excellent with 23 vents to let the air flow through. If you live where the weather is warm and sunny this helmet will definitely keep your head cool.
Aside from all of the high end features, the Teramo also has a well thought out technology when it comes to safety features. The Teramo road helmet uses Dual Density EPS Technology that helps disperse and redirect the force of impact. In addition, the Teramo helmet has an embedded chassis to help with added strength during the event of a crash and meets all of the CPSC standards.
Cannondale not only made a great looking helmet at a reasonable price range with the Teramo, but also put a lot of thought in creating a helmet that protects your head from potential injury, as well. I would like to see what Cannondale comes up with for 2013, maybe something like EVO technology in their helmet.
The Teramo comes in five colors to choose from to match your club gear and comes in S/M and L/XL sizes. The Teramo helmet retails for $ 110.00 and includes a helmet bag.
You can find the Teramo helmet at your local Cannondale dealer.
