You've ridden cadence-based workouts, suffered through miserable interval sets, and done repeats on every hill in a 50-mile radius of your house. You're ready for your summer race calendar. Before you sit back and relax into a few taper days, take inventory of your helmet. If it's been a loyal training companion since before racing crossed your mind, then it's probably time to think about an upgrade. Show up to the start line in the Scott Cadence Plus Helmet and make sure your lid is helping, not hurting your chances of staying in front of the pack. As an aero helmet, the Cadence Plus was built to efficiently usher air over you as you race with as little resistance as possible, so while it does include some venting, coolness isn't the primary goal. For race day, fill the vents with the included Aero Plugs that ship with the helmet, and you'll ensure full uninterrupted airflow over the top of the Cadence Plus. As extra reassurance in crash-heavy crits, Scott backs up the In-Mold shell with an inner layer of MIPS protection. MIPS, or Multi-directional Impact Protection System, refers to a thin basket on the inside of the helmet that rotates independently of the helmet's shell on impact to diffuse rotational energy generated in certain crashes.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
