HJC Ibex 2.0 Road Cycling Helmet
HJC Ibex 2.0 Road Cycling Helmet
The Ibex 2.0 road helmet is an ultra-lightweight and comfortable helmet designed to provide optimal ventilation. Its unique shape improves aerodynamics and allows it to evacuate heat more quickly.
Developed in HJC's own wind tunnel laboratory, the Ibex integrates the Venturi Dynamics to balance the air resistance force. The helmet is perfectly suited for intense effort and hot weather conditions thanks to its impressive and well balanced design.
Selfit is an automatic self-adjusting fitting system which is a revolutionary technology in bicycle helmet fitting. Once the helmet fit is set for your head it doesn’t require further adjustment, even when your head is moving during the ride. The Selfit system automatically adjusts the gap and provides consistent fitting and comfort for your head.
5 Fit Snap Fit
5 snap fitting positions provide consistent fitting and comfort for all different types of head shapes and sizes. The rider can adjust the fitting with precision, resulting in a helmet that will ideally adjusted for a perfect ride, time after time.
Internal Reinforcement Structure
The helmets are reinforced with an internal frame integrated into the EPS, the skeletal frame not only holds the helmet in one piece, but also makes it stronger and more resistant to protect your head in the event of a collision.
In-mold is a method consisting in bonding the EPS together with the outer polycarbonate shell for greater structural strength. This improves the rider’s protection by providing a compact reinforcement and gives the product a perfect finish.
Wind Tunnel Tested
HJC helmets are tested in the laboratory as well as in “real-life” to meet the highest quality standards. HJC is one of the very few helmet companies equipped with its own state-of-the-art wind tunnel laboratory to test aerodynamics, ventilation, noise, and more. The HJC wind tunnel test lab measures the air forces in a variety of riding conditions to improve helmet performance.
Coming from MotoGP race-helmet design experience, HJC designers and engineers have become experts in aerodynamics and wind ventilated helmets. Aero helmets, as the word implies, are more aerodynamic than the conventional racing bike helmet, but with compromised ventilation performance. With HJC Helmets, this compromise is very much reduced. HJC offers probably the best ventilated semi-aero helmet on the market…. Save Watts with HJC Helmets!
HJC bicycle helmets are designed and engineered through precise measures to have the lightest weight possible. Density, placement, shapes and materials all play a part in weight optimization.
Baron I love the look of the Ibex- minimal. The Ibex fit is roundish/ wide up front, but oval in the rear. I have an oval 56cm head and wear a medium in every brand I own- Lazer Genesis, Kask Protone, Met Rivale & Manta, but the spring loaded occipital cradle tension device on the Ibex was not tight enough on a medium to keep the helmet in place, I could rotate the helmet quite a bit on my head. I think if the tension device was dial adjustable the medium helmet would have fit fine. So, I downsized to a small and it fits perfectly, albeit with no extra room to spare and the helmet looks great. The spring loaded occipital cage feature with no adjustment required makes putting on and taking off the helmet easier, but I think a dial adjustable cage is better as it offers more ability to get the fit to an individual’s liking. So, I’m going 4 stars, but would be 5 stars with dial adjustment.
