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.

  • 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.

What if I have questions about the fit of the helmet?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant helmet. I bought this helmet for my son, who recently came off his bike and damaged his old one. He said it is the best helmet he has ever had, it fits well, with good adjustment, and is very comfortable. He is very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good performance I love this style and feeling good with this one rapha helmet. Weight a little bit heavy. 306g for L size

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Helmet The helmet is light and airy and fits really well on my head. The design is elegant and the contour is superb. In particular, the contrasting matt and polished black finish is unique. The only compliant I have is that with such a high end helmet, it should come with a decent string carry bag to put the helmet in when travelling. The fabric disposable bag that the helmet comes with degrades the perception of a quality product...

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).

Hi there! I live in europe, can i order the American version? But what is the difference with the EU version?

Asked by: Maurice777
The US version features a different density foam to meet US safety requirements. The EU version has a different requirement and is the only helmet we are able to sell in the EU

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.
