Louis Garneau Edge helmet

BikeRadar verdict

80.0 out of 5 stars

"Light, well-specified, minimal-looking helmet"

Wednesday, September 21, 2011 3.00pm By

A more minimal-looking helmet but with functional detail that puts it right up with the front-runners. The plastic shell is made with folded ribs to reinforce the structure and, together with an internal frame system, it allows for maximum vents, without compromising strength.

All those vents seem to allow air to escape as much as pull it through the helmet, and as one of the lighter lids on test, it became a reach-for helmet on warmer days. The retention system is a very slender bar. It pivots on the internal cradle so you can sit it in just the right place, and the dial fit adjuster has tiny increments so you don’t move from ‘saggy’ to ‘too tight’ in one turn. Light, well-specified – we like it.
