A sleek, pared-back helmet with superior cooling, visibility, and performance

The Rapha Helmet marries the engineering expertise of Giro with Rapha’s trademark styling to offer the perfect balance of comfort, breathability and protection. The sophisticated Roc Loc® Air fit-system makes the helmet feel barely there, and additional protection comes from the MIPS Brain Protection System, a low-friction layer between the outer shell and liner of the helmet.


  • Weight 254g (medium size)
  • 17 external vents with internal channelling for superior cooling
  • MIPS Multi-Directional Impact Protection System reduces rotational forces on impact
  • Roc Loc® Air fit system is simple to adjust and creates personalised fit
  • Reflective details in straps for increased visibility in low light
  • Dedicated ports for securely docking sunglasses
  • Anti-microbial padding keeps helmet fresh
  • Featherweight webbing with slimline buckle for lightweight security
  • In-mould polycarbonate shell with shock-absorbing EPS liner

Body sizing

To determine the correct helmet size, wrap a measuring tape around the head, keeping the tape just above the ears and level front to back. Once you’ve determined the measurement, you can use the chart here as a guide; However, we recommend that you try helmets on prior to purchase to ensure the best fit and comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greeat helmet Good quality, excellent fit, discreetly cool look. A bit disappointed the helmet is only packaged in a very cheap looking "net" and the fancy shipping box. I would have liked a better quality bag for storage of the helmet (similiar to bags for premium ski helmets, etc).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet - couple of pointers Aside from the lightness and great feel of the mips system, a couple of things to think about. The strap is very long, so the extra material will need to be cut as there's nowhere to hide the excess like other helmets have. Once cut, you'll need to figure out how to stop it fraying. I have no advice as I'm yet to build enough courage to try it. My old Giro broke at the rear, but this new one has the same very small piece of plastic holding the 2 'G's' in place that clamp your head. Basically tighten the helmet while you're looking up so you don't break it like I did when on the drops and looking up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Upgraded to the Rapha helmet recently and I'm happy with it. The fit works for me, and the MIPS system doesn't have any affect on the Roc-Loc retention system. I like the reflective detail on the straps too. My only disappointment is that the helmet is "bulkier" in real life compared to the impressions I got from the photographs. My previous helmet (Lazer) was "slimmer" on my head. Just a personal thing I guess. Overall though, a good fitting and comfortable helmet.

Rapha helmet reviews say that the L helmet weights in at 290g approx. I ve just received mine and the sticker says it weights 331g which is correct after I weight it on my scales. Is there a variance in weight in manufacturing Large sized helmets?

Asked by: ming118
Hi, the weight on our website is for the size Medium. The bigger the helmet the more volume it is required all over, including on size of straps, and therefore the more it will add to the actual helmet.

I'm a size 59. Which size helmet should I get?

Asked by: lbg1
You could try either a M or a L size. The M size will have a closer fit to the L version. What size you decide is dependent on personal preference. We do have a 90 day returns policy should the Helmet size not meet with your requirements.

Dear Rapha, How come the M helmets are not EU certified?

Asked by: Julesa
All our products and Helmets are EU certified.
