The HJC Valeco cycling helmet is a contemporary, aerodynamic, beautifully ventilated helmet, weighing in at only 230g - just 30 grams more than its bigger sister, the Ibex 2.0.
The Valeco benefits from all manner of fancy helmet technology that filters down from their top end models. In fact, it's the model worn by the Lotto Soudal Pro team, who aren't known to stint on quality.
As the biggest motorbike helmet manufacturer in the world for many years, they certainly know how best to protect heads effectively, lightly and stylishly.
The Valeco's 12 ventilation holes (count them!) help your head cool on any situation, from spring classics to the hot climbs in the mountains during the summer season. The sophisticated air channelling system not only cools your head, but efficiently blows the air out of the back without sacrificing aerodynamism.
Stick by the Valeco when temperatures drop and simply throw on an extra headwarmer.

HJC Size Guide
HJC are well used to getting head size right with helmets - they're among the doyens of motorbike helmets, and they've now brought their expertise to cycling helmets.
Their range is designed with female heads in mind and the size brackets are pretty broad, so we're confident finding the right size for your head won't be hard.
Simply wrap a tape measure around your head where a helmet would sit comfortably and compare your measurement with the sizes below:
||51-56cm / 20.2-22.2"
||55-59cm / 21.6-23.2"
||58-63cm / 22.8-24.8"
HJC are relative newcomers to the world of cycling. But their experience in protecting people's heads is unparalleled.
They are amongst the most experienced and respected motorbike helmet manufacturers in the world. The number 1 helmet manufacturer in the world for 17 years, they first started 45 years ago.
Since then they've made helmets for top race pros as well as millions of 'normal' motorcyclists. They distribute to 65 countries and have 20% market share in Europe amongst the world of motorised 2-wheelers.
Their very own wind tunnel facilities give them the aerodynamic edge over the competition, and this technology percolates all the way through their range. Their commitment to exceptional quality standards is legendary.
All of which means that when they took the leap into cycling helmets, they were never going to do it by halves! Sure enough, it's a breathtaking range. We're happy to entrust our (and your) heads to the good folk of HJC.
