A Bicycle Helmet that Changes Everything. See Invisible Helmet to Believe It

There is no doubt that the bicycle industry has created some beautiful helmets over the years.  The technology and inventiveness of many of these helmets has been like a microcosm of the larger industry, stylish and innovative.  You can see the entire history of the helmet business all the way back to hairnets at and this pictorial history.

Troxel TT Helmet - 1997

We all get that cycling is more fun with the wind blowing through our hair, and that helmets, no matter how clever and expensive, are still not something anyone would wear other than to protect brain matter. This might be about to change, or at least to allow for more out-of-the-box thinking.
If you haven’t seen this amazing video yet, we promise you’ll enjoy it. If you guess the end, tell us in the comments. If you think it will work, let us know that, too. What would you be willing to pay for one?

2014 Giant Propel Advanced SL Review

2014 Giant Advanced SL

Giant Bicycles has released their 2014 Propel Advanced SL — claiming that the bike simply, ”makes you faster.”

Propel is a bike that Giant’s engineers have worked on for years; not necessarily trying to make the fastest bike in the world, but a bike that can help make you faster.

What Giant did was take every angle of every tube, the design of the brakes, fork, handlebar, and steering system and design them in such a way that it effectively cuts through the wind. Not just the wind coming directly at you, but the crosswind coming in at different yaw angles.

The Propel Advanced SL uses Giant’s T800 Carbon Fiber strands (which is the highest tensile strength used in any bicycle) to max out the stiffness, while still leaving the ride comfortable so you can ride all day.

All of the Advanced SL models (Propel, TCR, Defy) use an integrated seatpost. This seatpost gives the bike a little more flex for comfort, and ditches a few grams of weight as well.

Giant tested the 2014 Propel Advanced SL against four other brands of bikes in a wind tunnel — each one using as many proprietary components as possible and a “dummy” to simulate the weight of the rider. At 40km/hr (24 or 25 mph) – this bike finished in an hour. The other bikes finished at 12 seconds slower, 34 seconds slower, and the final two bikes at 36 seconds slower.
