The fit is incredible, the retention system a little less so

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Hexr helmet delivers an incredibly comfortable fit from a fascinating manufacturing process. Unfortunately, the retention system doesn’t hold the helmet quite as solidly on your head as those from other brands. If you’ve got an averagely shaped head, you’ll likely find better performance from more traditional helmets – particularly for the price. But if you’re struggling to find a lid with the perfect fit, the personlisation Hexr offers may well solve your problems.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
