Ideal for anyone who wants a high-quality helmet that doesn't break the bank, the Syncro shares technology with Mavic's Plasma and... Plasma SLR. That means it received the same cranial mapping tests that ensure the helmet closely matches typical head shapes. The interior shape of the helmet consequently flows along the curves of the skull. But, heads are still all fundamentally unique. So Mavic added the Ergo Hold System, which allows for as much as 6 centimeters of one-handed, on-the-fly size adjustment. For the final touches on fit perfection, as well as excellent moisture management, Mavic has included their Ergo Fit Pro Pad. It might not seem like much when you look at it, but the Ergo Fit Pro Pad is a low-density open cell foam that wicks water from the skin and transports it to where it can evaporate quickly. The shell has a low-volume construction to reduce weight and includes a removable, lightweight visor and plugs. The Mavic Syncro Helmet has reflective highlights for extra protection after dark. It is available in Small, Medium or Large and the colors Black/Red and White/Black. Read More

If you ride both mountain and road bikes, do you really need two different helmets? Unless you strive to make a different fashion ...statement with each bike, the answer is most likely no. But, while you want a well-ventilated, lightweight helmet for the road, you also know that durability is paramount for trail riding. Mavic developed the Plasma Helmet to satisfy the inner roadie as well as the trail rider. More important than versatility however, Mavic devoted itself to making the Plasma the most comfortable helmet that you'll try. First, Mavic looked at optimizing the actual shape of the helmet. It conducted cranial mapping tests to make certain that the Plasma closely matches typical head shapes. Additionally, Mavic identified the not-so-obvious pressure points and contours, and made the interior shape of the helmet consequently flow along with the curves of the skull. But, even with a mound of data, there were still variances. This is where Mavic's Ergo Hold System comes into play. It allows for as much as six centimeters of one-handed, on-the-fly size adjustment. For the final touches on fit perfection, as well as excellent moisture management, Mavic also included its Ergo Fit Pro Pad. At first glance, it might not seem like much, but the Ergo Fit Pro Pad is a low density, open cell foam that wicks water away from the skin and transports it to where it can quickly evaporate.After guaranteeing comfort, Mavic took a hard look at the aerodynamic and durability aspects of the exterior. First, Mavic fashioned a sleek, low-volume profile. Then, looking towards ventilation, Mavic developed the Ergo Protec Alutex reinforcement. This technology makes it possible to build in huge frontal ventilation ports without compromising any of the helmet's crash protection. So, not only are you riding cool and protected, but the aggressive shape enhances your aerodynamic position. Finally, for added versatility and well, a little trail fashion sense, Mavic included a removabl... Read More

Mavic's foray into cycling helmets didn't happen overnight. It took 25,000 head profiles and three years of research and design to... for them to complete a product line of five helmets, including the mountain-bike specific Notch. By concentrating at the performance end of the cycling spectrum, Mavic's collective talent pool at the Annecy Design Center in France has foregone broad market appeal to focus on the essentials. The result is value-packed helmets expertly designed for their intended purpose -- and in the case of the Notch, it is aimed squarely at the Enduro sect. Aggressive trails and long days on the saddle demand full coverage, a low weight, and a snug, yet inconspicuous fit. Like Mavic's Special Service Course products, the Notch benefits from the aforementioned 25,000 profiles used for cranial mapping. In this case, Mavic rearranged the results into a shell that's optimized for the slightly upright mountain bike riding position. The result is a thorough design with excellent visibility and diminished pressure points. The shell's consistent contours also allow for a lower-profile helmet without compromising protection. This enhances rider comfort while permitting less material, i. e. weight, to reduce the neck-fatiguing, pendulum effect of heavier helmets. This is especially vital to technical terrain and long rides where extensive head movement and conserving energy is paramount. Another point of Mavic's design prowess is represented with the Ergo Hold Retention System. Six centimeters of size adjustment from an ergonomic dial wheel equally distribute pressure while securely holding the Notch in place. One handed, on-the-fly adjustments are second nature, and the integrated pads provide a snag-free transition from retention system to shell. The Notch's pads also received Mavic's attention to detail, and for optimum comfort, there are two pad densities used. The low density open cell foam is permeable to pull moisture away from the head, and it's... Read More

Does the Mavic Espoir Helmet look futuristic? Certainly. Was it designed with futuristic engineering techniques? Absolutely. And w...hile we understand that terms like 'futuristic' and 'engineering' are typically attributable to marketing fluff, the forethought that went into the Espoir remains unparalleled. Mavic based the Espoir's design around a simple principle -- comfort is king. Accordingly, the helmet has been given ample ventilation in order to maximize the effect of airflow's passage through the helmet. So, while you're inevitably sweating, you'll also be getting cooler as the moisture evaporates. More importantly, though, the Espoir makes use of Mavic's proprietary Ergo Shape system that accommodates around 25,000 head shapes -- perhaps this is where the Espoir gains its namesake of 'hope.' Hope for all of those that have never found an agreeable helmet shape. So, how was it done? Well, Mavic engineers performed cranial mapping in order to identify the pressure points and homogeneous contours of skull. Essentially, this translates to English as Mavic's designing the Espoir around a shape that addresses all of the human commonalities in regards to skull shape. As a result, Ergo Fit feels nearly custom on the head, providing a secure hold that doesn't berate your natural pressure points. Securing this exceptional fit is where Mavic's Ergo Hold System comes into play. It allows for as much as six centimeters of one-handed, on-the-fly size adjustment. For the final touches on fit perfection, as well as excellent moisture management, Mavic also included its Ergo Fit Pad. At first glance, it might not seem like much, but the Ergo Fit Pad is a low density, open cell foam that wicks water away from the skin and transports it to where it can quickly evaporate. Additionally, its low-profile reduces weight, and eliminates the soggy-pad-feeling that comes after 50 miles of summer riding.

Essentially, this translates to English as Mavic's designing the Espoir around a shape that addresses all of the human commonalities in regards to skull shape. As a result, Ergo Fit feels nearly custom on the head, providing a secure hold that doesn't berate your natural pressure points. Securing this exceptional fit is where Mavic's Ergo Hold System comes into play. It allows for as much as six centimeters of one-handed, on-the-fly size adjustment. For the final touches on fit perfection, as well as excellent moisture management, Mavic also included its Ergo Fit Pad. At first glance, it might not seem like much, but the Ergo Fit Pad is a low density, open cell foam that wicks water away from the skin and transports it to where it can quickly evaporate. Additionally, its low-profile reduces weight, and eliminates the soggy-pad-feeling that comes after 50 miles of summer riding.

If you ride both mountain and road bikes, do you really need two different helmets? Unless you strive to make a different fashion ...statement with each bike, the answer is most likely no. But, while you want a well-ventilated, lightweight helmet for the road, you also know that durability is paramount for trail riding. Mavic developed the Plasma Helmet to satisfy the inner roadie as well as the trail rider. More important than versatility however, Mavic devoted itself to making the Plasma the most comfortable helmet that you'll try. First, Mavic looked at optimizing the actual shape of the helmet. It conducted cranial mapping tests to make certain that the Plasma closely matches typical head shapes. Additionally, Mavic identified the not-so-obvious pressure points and contours, and made the interior shape of the helmet consequently flow along with the curves of the skull. But, even with a mound of data, there were still variances. This is where Mavic's Ergo Hold System comes into play. It allows for as much as six centimeters of one-handed, on-the-fly size adjustment. For the final touches on fit perfection, as well as excellent moisture management, Mavic also included its Ergo Fit Pro Pad. At first glance, it might not seem like much, but the Ergo Fit Pro Pad is a low density, open cell foam that wicks water away from the skin and transports it to where it can quickly evaporate.After guaranteeing comfort, Mavic took a hard look at the aerodynamic and durability aspects of the exterior. First, Mavic fashioned a sleek, low-volume profile. Then, looking towards ventilation, Mavic developed the Ergo Protec Alutex reinforcement. This technology makes it possible to build in huge frontal ventilation ports without compromising any of the helmet's crash protection. So, not only are you riding cool and protected, but the aggressive shape enhances your aerodynamic position. Finally, for added versatility and well, a little trail fashion sense, Mavic included a removabl... Read More

Mavic's foray into cycling helmets didn't happen overnight. It took 25,000 head profiles and three years of research and design to... for them to complete a product line of five helmets, including the mountain-bike specific Notch. By concentrating at the performance end of the cycling spectrum, Mavic's collective talent pool at the Annecy Design Center in France has foregone broad market appeal to focus on the essentials. The result is value-packed helmets expertly designed for their intended purpose -- and in the case of the Notch, it is aimed squarely at the Enduro sect. Aggressive trails and long days on the saddle demand full coverage, a low weight, and a snug, yet inconspicuous fit. Like Mavic's Special Service Course products, the Notch benefits from the aforementioned 25,000 profiles used for cranial mapping. In this case, Mavic rearranged the results into a shell that's optimized for the slightly upright mountain bike riding position. The result is a thorough design with excellent visibility and diminished pressure points. The shell's consistent contours also allow for a lower-profile helmet without compromising protection. This enhances rider comfort while permitting less material, i. e. weight, to reduce the neck-fatiguing, pendulum effect of heavier helmets. This is especially vital to technical terrain and long rides where extensive head movement and conserving energy is paramount. Another point of Mavic's design prowess is represented with the Ergo Hold Retention System. Six centimeters of size adjustment from an ergonomic dial wheel equally distribute pressure while securely holding the Notch in place. One handed, on-the-fly adjustments are second nature, and the integrated pads provide a snag-free transition from retention system to shell. The Notch's pads also received Mavic's attention to detail, and for optimum comfort, there are two pad densities used. The low density open cell foam is permeable to pull moisture away from the head, and it's... Read More

Does the Mavic Espoir Helmet look futuristic? Certainly. Was it designed with futuristic engineering techniques? Absolutely. And w...hile we understand that terms like 'futuristic' and 'engineering' are typically attributable to marketing fluff, the forethought that went into the Espoir remains unparalleled. Mavic based the Espoir's design around a simple principle -- comfort is king. Accordingly, the helmet has been given ample ventilation in order to maximize the effect of airflow's passage through the helmet. So, while you're inevitably sweating, you'll also be getting cooler as the moisture evaporates. More importantly, though, the Espoir makes use of Mavic's proprietary Ergo Shape system that accommodates around 25,000 head shapes -- perhaps this is where the Espoir gains its namesake of 'hope.'
