In terms of the best road bike helmets, Giant's lids don't garner the same level of recognition as in-house offerings from other bike brands such as Specialized or Trek/Bontrager, and I’m not sure why. I do believe the perception of Giant's parts and accessories will change with the re-launch of CADEX,  but to date, every Giant shoe, helmet, or whatever else I’ve used has left me thoroughly impressed.

The Rev Pro is the brand’s latest flagship road, XC, and gravel lid; we first spotted the Giant Rev Pro strapped to the heads of the CCC Team at the 2020 Tour Down Under in Adelaide.
