Ok, I'll bite: what is the orange helmet in the vid? New meteor model?
Saw one the other day. Orange polystyrene is the best way I can describe it, so a lightweight helmet with no shiny shell outer. Ridiculously light.
For the record, there is no sales pitch for this helmet in the blog. I have mentioned the gear I was kindly given by Lyon because I genuinely thought it was all great stuff, but it was actually the Meteor III that I used.
