Gear Review: Rudy Project – Stirling Helmet

Disclaimer: I received a Rudy Project Helmet to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!”

When it’s warm outside (or at least not freezing), I ride my bike everywhere including to work everyday. My bike is a couple years old but my helmet was even older and definitely needed replacing. It turns out that a helmet is one of those things that you don’t notice it’s bad until you get a new one and it’s SO much better. The Rudy Project helmet is 100% better than my old helmet (or any helmet I’ve ever had) and I had no idea how great it is to have a nice helmet.

Riding a bike in Toronto is dangerous and there’s a lot of hate between cyclists and motorists. I often almost get hit when I’m riding to work or on errands so one of my favourite things about this new helmet was it’s colour (bright green). I want to be seen as much as possible when I’m on the roads and what’s better than florescent green!

Besides the colour, the fit is also great, it fits snuggly on my head and didn’t need too many adjustments. My ride to work is mostly downhill and my old helmet wouldn’t stay on my head when I started going really fast but the Rudy Project helmet stays exactly where it should.


  • it’s lightweight
  • really brightly coloured so cars can see you!
  • great fit and easy to adjust
  • lots of ventilation
  • removal visor

I honestly cannot think of a single con.

I’m so happy with this helmet and have loved using it for the last few weeks. I’ve used it in rain, wind, hot weather and everything in between and I have no complaints. It’s actually light enough that I often forget it’s there.

If you’re thinking about a new helmet, this one worth investing in!

What’s a piece of gear that you thought was good enough until you upgraded and realized the difference?

Happy running!
