|Anyone using a Giro Pneumo helmet?||DrD|

|Anyone out there using one of these? I am considering buying one (my current helmet is over three years old and getting a little gross - plus the pads are pretty much falling apart (probably from washing them)) - the Pneumo looks like it is "all that" as far as keeping the head cool goes, which would be a good thing down here in a few months when daytime rides feel like you're on the surface of the sun (I am in central Texas... praying that this summer is less evil than the last one) |
Anyway - just curious if anyone had any good/bad impressions they wanted to share. Thanks!

|I got this helmet two weeks ago after finally giving up on my previous Giro.
Best helmet I've ever had. Light, aero, comfortable, and a perfect fit.

|Got my Pneumo several days ago and its great and beautifully made. Luckily I got it 20% off at my LBS during its spring sale. Pads seem to get less soaked than my old Bell so I think the vents work. There are as many air vents as there is helmet material.|

|So I went down to the lbs to purchase a new Pneumo - they had one in the USPS colors (looks really cool!) - sadly, my head isn't shaped the way Giro makes it's helmets - you appear to need a very round head, and mine is evidently not! When the helmet was on, and the straps/rocloc 4 adjusted, if I pushed the helmet to one side, I could almost get my whole hand in next to my head! So - I had to try on other stuff (the Specialized King Cobra was a no-go, the Bell Phi pro was ok, but still a little loose, and the Limar F107+ fit great, so that's what I ended up with... it's a very nice helmet - very comfortable, too - probably not as good at keeping my head cool as the pneumo would have been, though :-( )|

|Own a F107 myself, perfect fit, lightweight, and keeps my head cool enough.
Sure, it may not look as stylish as some others, but heck, I already own an OCLV frame, I'm not going to for the total poser approach ;)

|The F107 is the best helmet I've ever owned. I've been using it for about 9 months. The really good part of it was getting it brand new for $60 on e-bay. Who says you can't find bargains on e-bay?|| |
