Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have seen these out for a while, but have always been a fan of Giro. However, when they came out with the Pink one this season my team and I jumped on it since it matches our kits so well. I got the helmet and loved it from first sight, unfortunately the pink began to fade immediately and after one ride in the Florida sun it had become lighter. I read from others too that it easily fades due to the environmentally conscious process, but didn't think it would occur on ride 1. I have reverted to only using it for races and on early morning or evening rides to slow the fading process...but overall like the fit and ventilation of the helmet and just bought a Garminum Blue one that will hopefully not have the same issue. The photo is from the first ride.
