Mavic’s Syncro helmet tested and reviewed

Mavic Syncro Helmet ReviewMavic Syncro helmet

Mavic’s compact helmets look great and the Syncro scores higher for value than the top-end Plasma SLR (£149.99) while featuring most of the same technology and actually coming in 31g lighter at 287g. Ventilation is great though the forehead padding wasn’t enough to stop lines of sweat on hot, hill-heavy rides.

The interior shape is particularly comfy for round heads and the rear retention ratchet holds securely without pinching and is easily adjusted while riding. It stays comfortable after hours on the road too.
