Most of us don't have more than one helmet, so we expect the one we have to protect us and be comfortable enough that we aren't distracted by it, regardless of what type of ride we're on. If these are the most important characteristics of a helmet to you, Louis Garneau's Sharp Women's Helmet fits the description. It has a sleek In-Mold polycarbonate and EPS shell with plenty of ventilation and meets major bike safety standards.
While In-Mold construction is a common feature, Garneau sets the Sharp apart by arranging the shell in U-shaped, folded design — not unlike a rib cage — for added structural integrity in the event of a crash. It also adds an inner frame to help effectively distribute impact and reinforces the helmet's base with its Super MSB design, which is essentially an additional layer that further increases strength.
For everyday ride comfort, the lightweight Spiderlock SL II strap adjustment makes one-handed fit adjustments easy and Airdry padding gives the helmet a little extra cushion. The pads are removable and washable, too, so you can keep your helmet smelling fresh over time. Finally, if you end up wanting to add a sun-blocking visor to the Sharp, Garneau gives you the option; the helmet is compatible with the removable, separately sold Louis Garneau Edge visor.
