Everything you need to swim, bike, run
Helmet: Protecting your noggin is key when riding on the road. Take a spill and a helmet could save your life. What to look for: Ventilation is key in a helmet to keep your head cool as you ride. Well-placed pads made of wicking fabric will help manage perspiration, too. You want the helmet to adjust easily to fit your head snugly without pinching. The women-specific helmet Trek Circuit ($100) comes in two sizes to ensure proper fit.
