Endura Pro SL helmet review

Koroyd adds another layer of safety to Endura's top level road helmet

Cycling Weekly Verdict

Endura's Pro SL helmet offers the sorts of safety features normally found on helmets at far higher prices. It also fits well, is light and looks great. However the lack of decent airflow makes this a helmet more suited to cooler conditions or steadier efforts.

Endura has been steadily producing a range of helmets to run parallel with its clothing lines for some time now. The Pro SL is designed to accompany Endura's top tier kit and as such benefits from the best tech and materials the brand has used on a helmet to date.

Out of the box and the Pro SL is a traditional looking (read: non-aero styled) helmet. It follows the modern approach of using an in-moulded construction method to bond the harder outer shell to the standard polystyrene type main body. Where it differs is in its use of two different outer shell sections. This allows Endura to use sections of different colours such as the blue and grey of this example. One thing that I did notice is that the moulding process of the lower section seems to be completely smooth and seamless whereas the upper section has a few edges that display little gaps between shell and body - something that could cause issues further down the line.
