Whilst watching the tour I've noticed how non mushroomy the UVEX helmets worn by the Francaise de Jeux team look.

I've never seen them in any LBS and haven't tried one on, so does anyone have any word on them and who stocks them so I can see how they fit?

Having a big head I'm after a slim fitting lid and they seem to be the slimest I've seen.

    I recently picked up a Uvex FP1 (carbon white - medium) and really like it - got it from Rutland Cycling - it replaced a faulty Giro Saros from Planet X that bust after two rides.

    I still makes me look like a character from Super Mario though - however it's comfortable and has good adjustment

    I have a Uvex FP1 and love it. I tried on many different helmets including Giro Atmos`s and Specialized S-Works and found neither as good looking as the Uvex. The Uvex is also lighter. Its so light and comfortable i forget i have it on and its very well vented. My mate was so impressed he also got one. I couldn`t recommend them highly enough.
