Do you need a gravel-specific helmet? With the massive growth of gravel racing in recent years everything from bikes and tires to saddles, shoes and clothing have been made gravel-specific, however helmets seem to have mostly escaped this new evolution in cycling equipment. 

Most people just use a road helmet for gravel riding but they aren't always the best suited for the rough and tumble that can come with gravel. A mountain bike helmet is another option but can sometimes be overkill and heavy. Enter the Lazer Cerro KinetiCore, a lid that’s meant to combine the best of both worlds.
