Fresh Deals


Giro Aether MIPS Helmet
Save $45: For those in the know in the helmet world, MIPS is a pretty big deal. Short for “multi-directional impact protection system,” the label applies to helmets featuring a plastic liner that acts as a slip plane to redistribute the sort of rolling impacts that characterize many bike accidents. The next evolution is MIPS Spherical, where two layers of foam on the outside of the helmet mimic the sliding effect without the sacrifices in fit and ventilation that traditional MIPS brings.
All of which is to say, MIPS Spherical is pretty cutting-edge protective stuff, usually only available at a premium, such as the $370 cost of a Giro Aether MIPS Helmet. The favorite of a number of Tour de France riders, the helmet also boasts a laser-cut shell seamlessly fused to the EPS foam, Roc Loc 5 Plus easy adjustability and 11 deep vents for optimal ventilation. Right now it’s on sale for $325 (in the low-key coolest Olive/Citron colorway) at Competitive Cyclist. Talk about a safe bet.

The lined jackets come in four colors and feature waxed cotton fabric, four snapped patch pockets and a stand collar with a packable hood.

Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700
Save $30: You can already score a deal on Bose’s latest and greatest noise-canceling headphones, the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. Bose and basically every other retailer is selling them for $400, but eBay is selling brand-new models for $30 off. The deal only applies to black models.

(The standard discount is for $25%, but enter the code “SAVE” at checkout and you can realize a further cut off MSRP). — Oren Hartov


Citizen Eco-Drive Military Field Watch
Save 52%: A watch with Citizen’s practical Eco-Drive technology, never needs a battery change since it’s powered by any exposure to light.

At 42mm wide in steel, it promises Citizen’s typical durability and value even at full retail price — but right now at over 50% off at Nordstrom Rack, you can get it for just $120. — Zen Love
