Product Review: Cannondale Cypher Helmet


I’ve had the privilege of riding with the Cannondale Cypher Road Helmet  this season. As someone who has ridden many different helmets and products in general, I can tell you that not all helmets are created equal. The Cypher provides coverage that over achieves industry standard, and gives an incredible amount of ventilation while keeping aerodynamics in mind.

While protection is the most important characteristic for a helmet, weight is also huge. Cannondale took this into consideration while designing the helmet and it is the lightest helmet I’ve ever worn. The ratcheting system used is a simple dial that works flawlessly and allows the rider to make micro-adjustments on the fly for an optimal fit. Cannondale’s Cypher is a phenomenal choice for the club rider, endurance cyclist, and the aspiring crit racer. The Cannondale Cypher helmet is a super lightweight and comfortable helmet that offers awesome ventilation and superb and stylish protection.
