Equipe CMI International Cycling Team recently received their new helmets from new helmet sponsor Ranking.
Ranking have been making some of the world's best helmets for decades, often for other well known brands. Over the past 5 or so years they have started to push their fine products more under their own name. Some of you maybe have been noticed as French Pro Tour team AG2R for whom one of our riders Mathieu Perget used to ride, here sporting some fine Ranking helmets last years on the roads of the world's biggest races. Much like Quick bikes, Ranking have chosen Equipe CMI to help push their brand in Europe as CMI offers these types of companies the advantage of being closer to the people, more accessible and often more noticeable and visible to their key demographic clients and potential customers.
Ranking Helmets have send the team two different colour options from which to choose, as well as two options for the riders to choose from according the stage or weather, as they offer a fine area helmet as well as the most traditional vented helmet. These helmets are to be well vented and nice and cool for the hot summer rides and races and for those long slogs in the mountains.
The helmets are also surprisingly light at a mere 180g each!
Ranking offer a fine fit with their retention system.
Look out for the team riders at races or out training. You can also find Ranking's full range of helmets on their website www.ranking-helmet.com
