Featuring a thin, lightweight profile, and a smooth aero shell, this helmet from Abus is an excellent choice when a long-tail aero helmet isn’t in the cards.

Using just enough ventilation to keep cool, but not so much it loses its aero advantage, the ABUS Game Changer Aero Road Helmet is a great choice for training or race-day use. Weighing in at a shocking 260 grams for the small size (also available in medium and large), this is one of the lighter aero road helmets in the category, and certainly feels very minimal while worn. Little extras like a spot for sunglasses, excellent ventilation, and space for those with ponytails make this a well-rounded helmet for all conditions.
