Our review

A proper women’s helmet for proper riders. Highly recommended

Looks can be deceiving, and all our testers initially passed over the ‘distinctive’ Fuga Contessa. Once testing started, however, it became a real favourite. This is a sleek, cool lid for every ride.


Fit, comfort and ventilation all turn out to be excellent.  A simple ratchet system deals with retention duties, and all three sizes are glove-like, suiting slender heads best.


The series of interlocking vents ensures an icy-cool feel, and although there’s little rear coverage, that’s fine for cross-country use where air flow is key. Padding extends right to the back for comfort and features like the magnetic peak add to the value.
