Rudy Project Sterling, 296g review

Rudy Project, CA helmets test 2013
Cycling Weekly Verdict

The only downside I can come up with after 500 miles of testing is that the luxuriant, but somewhat thick, lining takes a while to dry out after sweaty rides.

    Lining can take a while to dry out

With an overall finish that belies its midrange price, the Sterling looks and feels way more expensive than it is - there's even a useful ‘Eyewear Dock' for safe spec storage.

The strong, flexible cradle and large, easy-to-use dial adjuster ensure a snug but comfortable fit while the Bug Stop inner liner should mean fewer creepy crawlies find their way through the 18 vents.
