In an era in which aerodynamics has taken center stage, the Velocis offers a throwback design, with traditional aesthetics and large vents. It’s light at 228 grams, so it’s easy to forget you’re wearing it at all. The simple dial retention system is easy to use, and offers height adjustment too: Firmly press up or down on the rear of the system and it clicks into one of three positions. Overall, it provides a very comfortable fit in a stylish package.
A minor quibble: The straps caught on the rear band of the retention system when donning the helmet, and we had to reposition them once the helmet was on.
Inside, clean and simple antimicrobial pads wick moisture and eliminate odors. Another attractive feature (but one you’ll hopefully not need to use) is the Crash Replacement Guarantee, which provides a free helmet replacement if involved in a crash within the first year of ownership.
