Four model range now available to dealers

Cannondale helmets arrive in the UK

Cannondale’s helmet range, first announced last summer, has now arrived in the UK.

Distributed by Cycling Sports Group UK (and previewed at the company’s Ride the Revolution show), the product line-up includes four models aimed from ultra-light high-end road to that for the everyday commuter.

The high-end road and mountain bike helmets – the Ryker and the Teramo – feature SI Aluminium Exoskeleton reinforcements, allowing bigger venting on each helmet for enhanced airflow and no loss of protection.

UK parts and accessories purchasing manager Matt Farrow commented: “It’s a great range of helmets for every rider, with a unique adjuster system ensuring each helmet has a quality fit. The Cannondale Product Development Team has created a range of helmets which meet the demands of today’s cyclist, whatever their style or budget.”

The range features the fashion-conscious commuter-aimed Quick, retailing for £29.99. The Radius is pitched as a low profile, in-town helmet, that transitions to ‘weekend warrior’ duty and retails for £39.99. The Ryker is Cannondale’s fast and aggressively-styled MTB Helmet, designed as an all-purpose Cross-Country / Trail lid and incorporates Cannondale’s SI Alloy Reinforcements and graphics embedded into the polycarbonate shell, so they won’t chip or scrape off. It retails for £49.99.

The Teramo weighs just 245 grams and features 23 large vents and SI Alloy Exoskeleton Reinforcement, is the top of the range road race helmet. It retails for £69.99.

Every helmet has embedded a nylon chassis that helps maintain helmet integrity in the case of a crash. The helmets are made from dual density EPS (expanded polystyrene) co-moulded (moulded in one) with both high and low density EPS using a cone shaped internal interface between the foam layers. Cannondale said it has been able to “create zones that better disperse and redirect impact energy in the event of a crash”.

Cannondale’s new proprietary fit system features a soft touch, form-fitting pad using an onboard micro-adjustment dial to twist for the perfect fit. This makes one-handed adjustments possible whilst riding.
