Making up one third of the ZeroRH+ helmet range (along with the ZR and the recently reviewed ZW), the Zero RH ZX Helmet promises premium head protection with good looks and build quality to match.
The ZX is available in two sizes; S/M (54-58cm) and L/XL (58-61)cm. With a head circumference of 56cm, the S/M fitted me perfectly - benefiting from the offering of narrower sizing brackets compared to cheaper alternatives. This helps to give the helmet a nice close fit that is apparent in both looks and feel.
Italian brand ZeroRH+ have a range of three helmets in their cycling portfolio; the ZR, the ZX and this - the ZW.
The ZW, like practically all helmets on the market,is made from an expanded polystyrene (EPS) liner which is co-moulded to the polycarbonate shell. This keeps the helmet together after the first impact just in case of a second.
Looking for a set (or two) of Speedplay Zeros with cleats.
I’ll start with a confession: I always thought cycling gloves were about padding for recreational cyclists, and not shredding your hands to bits in spills for racers. Testing these Giro zero mitts, I discovered a third function: grip on wet bars and controls. Not having used gloves for a long time — I don’t need the padding and I like to think I won’t come off — I found myself thinking, “there seems to be a bit of moisture in the air: better take the Giro Zeros”
