    Giro debuts 260 gram, 21 vent helmet...

    from cyclingnews.com
    "Cyclingnews tailed Giro sports marketers Chuck Platt and JP Mosnier as they delivered a new Giro helmet to their sponsored Tour de France teams, the all new Ionos. The new lid boasts 21 vents and at a claimed 260g, weighs in about 20 grams lighter than the already light Atmos. Discovery Channel and Rabobank riders will be using Ionos helmets at this year's Tour de France. When the Giro guys had their backs turned, we managed to snap a few pix of this special new helmet."
