This Svelte new helmet from Carrera was designed in the wind tunnel to maximise aerodynamics while still offering generous cooling from the internal airflow paths. The Radius weighs a respectable 264g and isn’t going to hold you back on climbs while neck-ache was at a minimum even after hours in an aero tuck.

The straps have mesh channels for breathability while the ‘flex control system’ cradle, which has two pivot points for custom-fitting, and an easy to use ratchet dial for on-the-move adjustment, meant comfortable pinch-free security.

It’s also a great choice for ponytails, offering plenty of room and minimum faff in transition. The Alu-Tech Frame reduces the helmet’s volume, making it look compact rather than mushroom-like and the interior lining is also washable to avoid it becoming a stinker.
