Description

Bern fans rejoice.

It was a long time coming, but last year Bern finally released their first cycling-specific helmet: the Allston. The designers worked with the world's best cyclo-cross racers and bicycle messengers to create a helmet that performs as well as it looks, from rugged cross courses to urban environments, and haven't seen the need to mess with what works.

Sixteen strategically-placed vents result in fifty percent more airflow than in other Bern models, making it ideal for hot days and long rides. Zipmold technology uses a liquid injection method that fuses lightweight high-impact foam and a tough PVC shell to protect your noggin without weighing you down, and Sink Fit features a low-profile configuration so the helmet fits around your head, not on top. An integrated visor can be worn flipped up to suit your style or down to shade your eyes.

  • Bern's first cycling-specific helmet
  • PVC shell
  • Zipmold foam
  • 16 strategically-placed vents
  • Low-profile Sink Fit
  • Integrated visor flips up or down
  • Higher strength-to-weight ration than traditional helmets

Breathable Bern!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I recently received this updated version of the Allston, and am an even bigger fan than I was of the first edition Allston.

The two main updates over the previous version are; revised rear retention system and a fixed position under the ear chin strap.
The previous double Velcro retention system, that I do not feel helped securely snug the rear of the helmet to your head is now a 'BOA' style dial that is fixed to the inner liner and helps snug in the rear of the helmet quite nicely.
The previously adjustable straps under the ear, that I feel are a constant battle to find the right position as well as lay flat on the face; have been replaced with a non adjustable, sewn strap that is very comfortable next to skin and is a vast important in my eyes.

The stand out feature of this helmet above all other previous Bern models would certainly be it's ventilation; with 16 large vents, I have no issues wearing this with or without a cycling cap on warmer days. This is my go-to helmet for commuting around town, running to the store/bar, and any other cycling adventure where I would prefer a more durable helmet over a super lightweight one.
