  1. No joke, I want the Parachute so badly. I’ve seen some really terrible damage done to people’s faces and jaws while riding on the road. Be nice to have a bit of protection for the most expensive part of your body.

  2. People already get laughed at enough on this side of the Atlantic for wearing Parachutes, you don’t need them over there in the US.

    I have a Kaos UL. Normally I’m a Giro man but won this and actually really like it, which surprised me. The gel pads are great.
