The Abus Lane U helmet is a unisex design marketed as having a more feminine friendly shape but in my experience it just seems better fitting and finished than most lids.
We take in mould construction (where outer shell and EPS liner are formed seamlessly together) for granted these days but Abus have employed a double shell, which supposedly offers greater protection and combined with a softer, more rounded profile and subtle liveries certainly looks more flattering worn with street/inspired clothes.
At £99.99 the Tec-Tical Pro Race is the flagship model from German company Abus. Construction quality is good but it lacks any real standout features with plenty of competition from more performance orientated brands.
The Tec-Tical Pro Race weighs 245grams; light but not market-leading for £100. That weight is achieved thanks to the multi-shell in-mould process (so Abus say), which joins the outer skin to the EPS shell – a process not uncommon in most top-end lids.
