Scott Brings Bicycle Helmets to U.S., Intros New Models

2012 Scott Groove II mountain bike helmet

Scott Sports has done bike helmets in Europe for years, and this week marks their move across the pond with new models and new colors. We got a sneak peek with the basic specs. The range covers mountain, road, urban and kids, and they’re all priced quite competitively.

At launch, the Groove II mountain bike helmet (above) will rule the roost, but by later this year or early next they’ll have a higher end road lid. Specs for the Groove II are:

  • $80.00
  • In-mold multi density construction with in-mold frame
  • Removable Visor
  • Cam strap divider
  • Dial adjustment with vertical adjustment (V-R.A.S. Vertical Rotary Adjustment System uses V-shaped sides that allow for 2 selectable vertical fixation points – AKA: height adjustable retention system)
  • 260g (M) – 3 sizes available
