SCOTT VIVO PLUS HELMET
All the protection
Aside from producing one of the fastest bikes on the planet, Scott also makes some pretty sweet helmets. The Vivo Plus is an all-around trail helmet that will handle burlier all-mountain and enduro riding. The shell uses EPS foam and a MIPS liner to help with rotational impacts. This helmet has an adjustable visor and Scott’s MRAS2 fit system. The price is $130, and the helmet can be found at any Scott dealer. www.scott-sports.com
