|Best Helmet: Giro Boreas?||Bill RHIT|
Jul 16, 2001 8:01 AM
I typically ride about 40-50 miles a day for 4-5 days a week and I am looking to buy a new helmet as my old one is causing me to sweat to much in the heat. Does anyone know of the best deal of a Giro Boreas of posibly a Pneumo. Anyone have any opinions? Are these the helmets I should be considering? Thanks.

|You may want to check out performance.com. Latest Performance catalogue has limited sizes and colors on sale. I just received the Pneumo for father's day as a gift (already have a Boreas). From what my wife tells me, no discounts available yet (too new or in demand). Good luck. |
p.s. there are other well ventilated helmets as well (I do like the Pneumo though). Look around.

|Two Wheel Transit (http://www.twowheeltransit.com) has a blowout on last year's Boreas happening, also on Eclipses and other. Good deals, and I'm happy with their service.|

|Here here! Thanks! I just ordered mine a minute ago. Awesome price.
Mini rant here, people in the classifieds are trying to dump their used Boreas's for $70-$80. Some of the prices over there are just absurd. People trying to sell used stuff for 80% to 90% of the price they paid. I put up some used stuff in great condition for fair prices at 50% or lower of new cost and it all sold immediately.

|Giro has the worst replacement policy and since you use it often i recommend something with a better replacement policy.
BELL EVO is at a discount for less than $40 (used to cost $110)

|I recently ordered a $79.99 Boreas from Two Wheel Transit, but also found a $69.99 US Postal model on sale via the "helmets" section on the following website:
They only have S/M (which fits most noggins) and in limited supply - they still had them in stock when I called to verify last week.
Also, check out the great prices on the new Cateye OS computers ($39).
