Suomy helmets are fairly new to the cycling market but it's not a brand unfamiliar with crafting high- performance and safe helmets for the motorsport world. It's now putting this same dedication to the R&D and attention to detail into its cycling offerings. We first noted its helmets atop the pros on Team Lampre-Merida and later atop three-time cyclocross world champion Wout Van Aert. These helmets are as innovative as they are unique and sure to stand out in a sea of easier to attain brands. The version here is the Timeless Helmet built in a more classic design than the Gun Wind that’s both compact and aerodynamic.
The first thing you'll notice about the Timeless is how airy it is. Thirty-five vents conspire to draw in cool air and help hotter air escape. Those vents are also responsible for the helmets impressively low weight with a size medium coming in at 190 grams. In-molded construction places a polycarbonate shell over the impact absorbing polystyrene foam that blends durability and safety. The foam closest to the head features channels to further the movement of air through the helmet and creates less material touching your skin. The inner padding uses hypoallergenic materials that also happen to be anti-odor and anti-bacterial. As a bonus, it's removable any time you want to wash them and freshen up the helmet. Finally, the fit adjustment offers 3 vertical and 2 lateral positions to fit a variety of head shapes and it meets or exceeds international safety certifications.
