If there were a cycling equivalent of the all-purpose black T-Shirt,
the Giro Sutton Helmet may be it. Its design is simple and
straightforward: this is a bike helmet, and it does bike helmet things.
No frills. No Euro-pro gimmicks. Just 100% unadulterated helmet. The
Sutton's subtlety means it goes with anything form Lycra to linen, and
it can fly under the radar if you wear it in to the store. If you'd
rather leave it outside, its reinforced vent provides the means to lock
it to your bike.
In addition to the heathered webbing and a soft rain/sun visor, the
Sutton's got your standard 20-plus years of Giro safety and fit
expertise poured into it. Its safety features extend beyond impact
protection, though. The Sutton includes reflective elements and a clip
on the back for mounting a light — either one of which may help you
avoid the need to use the helmet for its intended, noodle-saving purpose
by making sure you don't avoid detection in low-light situations.
