What helmet?

With the summer finally having arrived for us folks up in Canada, I'm enjoying my training hours in the hottest part of the day. In preparation for our team's race at Gold Rush in August (Near Yosemite, CA) followed by Desert Winds Expedition in September (near Lake Mead, NV), I am not shying away from epic climbs beneath the sun's rays. I know its going to be a scorcher in the Nevada desert so I better get used to it.

One thing that has made training fantastic right now is my new Rudy Project helmet. The "Sterling" is unbelievably breathable and super light. In fact, once it's on, I never even think about it again! I watched the group that I was riding with remove helmets on our 1hr30min steady, exposed climb on a logging road today. I didn't even think twice about doing the same. The Sterling is very comfortable, with breathable and wicking padding in all the right places inside and 18 vents to keep the air flowing through. The turn style knob (Rudy's one hand, on the fly retention dial system) at the back allows for an effortless fit adjustment. And, its wrap around comfort ring ensures an even fit. A really cool feature is the glasses holding bay system where you can simply slide your glasses holding bay (yellow in the photo on the left). Nice touch. It's no wonder that Rudy Project leads the way in helmet manufacturing, they know what riders want and need and then, make it happen!!
