Lance Ionos Helmet Only £99.99

The Giro Ionos helmet impressed Lance Armstrong so much he put his name on it. It's about the best-ventilated helmet money can buy, and with a huge £70 off RRP, Planet X can offer it to you at the lowest price anywhere. For just £99 you can protect your most vital asset, stay cool, and help fight cancer while you're doing it.

You may see your helmet as simply a stylishly moulded bit of polystyrene you strap onto your bonce in case you come a cropper, but you'd only need to look at the blistering array of types and styles - as well as vastly wavering price tags to get some idea of the fevered design and engineering battle that the big companies are pitched into. You only get one head in this life, and with all those helmet models to go at, how do you make a decision? Well, the headgear of choice for Lance Armstrong and Alberto Contador must have something going for it - and at the price we've managed to secure, this pro-level noggin-protector could be yours for a lot less than you think.


A good helmet must strike a careful balance between many opposing factors - low weight vs. high strength, good protection vs. effective ventilation. It needs to be aerodynamic too to shave off those vital hundredths of a second… and it also needs to look pretty to encourage you to actually wear it.

Giro have been at the forefront of the helmet game for years, and their Ionos model is the most ventilated and technologically advanced road cycling helmet they have ever created. It consists of a proprietary in-mold composite sub-frame (I.C.S.) - providing the strength to support 21 of the largest vents ever carved into a helmet. These massive vents - coupled with an intricate network of internal channels - create a cooling system Giro have coined "Wind Tunnel Ventilation". The difference is remarkable and after one ride you'll agree: the Ionos is the coolest, best-ventilated helmet available.

The cooling effect was enough to win over Tour champions Contador and Armstrong. So much so that Lance Armstrong has partnered with Giro to produce a special Livestrong edition of the Ionos, with proceeds going directly to the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

Having beaten testicular cancer and gone on to clock up seven consecutive Tour de France wins, Armstrong created the foundation in order to unite people through programs and experiences, to empower cancer survivors to live life on their own terms and to raise awareness and funds for the fight against Cancer.


We can't think of a better way to protect your head, stay cool, combat cancer and fly the flag for Lance in one fell swoop - and to make things even easier we're slashing the price tag so you can now get your hands on a top-class Ionos lid for under a hundred quid. That's about the best price we can find anywhere.

With a saving like that, these helmets are going to fly out of the warehouse, so jump in now while they're still here!
