Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Ibex 2.0 is a great looking top-flite road helmet that puts comfort, airflow and weight at the top of its priorities. It has to be one of the most comfortable helmets I have ever tested and the fit is fantastic. I would like to see some additional safety feature such as MIPS to really make it the number one choice.

Automation can be a good thing. There are some jobs that just become tedious and if there's an easier way of doing it or even better, something to do it for me, then I'm all for it. I never felt this way about my cycle helmet and it's almost standardised dial system for fitting it to your head until, that is, I tested the HJC Ibex 2.0.
