Endura have launched two new road lids, with the Pro SL incorporating Koroyd technology in the shell for better crash protection and the FS260-Pro coming in at a featherlight 210g.
The £149.99 Pro SL has a micro-adjustment fit system and numerous anchor points in the rear retention system. The Koroyd technology is found in the core of the helmet, and is designed to improve impact absorption. To get a CE certification bike helmets have to show to reduce risk of a skull fracture by 40%, and helmets with the Koroyd shell design found on the Pro SL claim to limit this to 5%. As well as top notch protection Endura claim the Pro SL offers superior ventilation thanks to angled tubes in the shell structure, which increases airflow.
The FS260-Pro is £89.99, and while it doesn't have the Koroyd impact protection, it's at home in the mountains with a claimed weight of 210g for the M/L version and under 200g for the small lid. It comes in white, high-vis green and black colourways, with twin striped and reflective details at the rear, and there's multiple large air vents to maximise ventilation. Antibacterial fast wicking padding add comfort and reduce the pong for even the sweatiest of days in the mountains.
Both lids are available now, check out Endura's website for more info.
Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
