Abus released the StormChaser as a mid-level performance road helmet designed with versatility in mind, aiming it at road, crit and cyclo-cross racing. The helmet has since been raced at WorldTour level by the Movistar Team and released in myriad different colourways. We've been sampling the gravel-inspired version - with its earthy green tones - on- and off-road to see how it performs.
