Because I am old and fail to "get" many things that are new, and despite my resolve to go easy on the New Urban Cyclist in articles and blog posts, I could not resist showing you this photo.
It's the new Giro Section helmet in brown "leather-effect," the faux hide treatment intended to evoke some sepia-toned era that is gone but lingers in the minds of 22-year old luggies.
It's a Giro so we can figure that it's not cheap. The BikeRadar.com article included a photo of the helmet upside down, and it looks marginally protective, not that potential buyers care - as they have so richly demonstrated.
The new Giro Section will surely be hot in summer and ugly all year 'round.
I'm done now. I'll go back to listening to Fats Domino on vinyl.
Added post comment: Perhaps, if I have time this evening, I'll try to grow up. If I do grow up, that new Giro Section may become an object of beauty. Maybe. Maybe not.
