Abus Viantor helmet review

Looking for a lid that won't break the bank? Matt Baird tests Abus' best sub-£100 helmet for training and racing...

The Abus Viantor sits lower on the head than many here, which is good for added forehead protection, but there was a slight incursion into field of vision, especially when on the aerobars.

More an irritation than a full-blown obstruction, but it’s a theme that continues with the slight padding that oddly doesn’t cover each of the internal ridges. Multiple colour options are available and they all look stylish, while our partner likes the ponytail-friendly design.

Safety is enhanced with the shell covering the bare EPS foam and Abus’s ActiCage reinforcement tech that’s integrated into the EPS. The adjustment system, 269g weight and ventilation via the 18 channels are all adequate.

Verdict: Functional and stylish enough, if a little pricey.

Score: 76%
