Now safe is stylish as SCOTT introduces the Argo – a feature-packed trail helmet that incorporates MIPS, comes in nine – yes NINE – different colours and doesn’t cost a fortune! Bonus – we’re giving away a SCOTT Argo helmet worth R1799 to five lucky winners!

We all know that riding with a helmet is sensible because it offers head protection in case of a fall. But a piece of safety equipment is hardly something to get excited about, especially in South Africa, where the heat can make wearing a helmet difficult to bear. But any misgivings about trail helmets have just been swept away in a new wave of helmet style from SCOTT. Introducing the all-new Argo.

It’s hard to deviate much from standard helmet design, which is why most trail helmets look similar. But the Argo is undoubtedly distinctive in its shape, lines and colours. It’s also light, well ventilated, features MIPS protection and is very well priced! It’s probably the most perfect trail helmet ever made. Here’s why…

Extended coverage – increases protection for the back of your head

MIPS® – Integrated Brain Protection System for rotational impacts

Optimised ventilation – Large well-positioned vents for maximum cooling

Full-size visor – protects you from rain drops, sun and branches

Eyewear stowage – secure place to carry your eyewear when needed

Customisable padding – pre-formed cut lines allows you to cut fit padding to suit you

Light weight – At 320g, it’s light for a trail helmet

HALO Fit retention system – One-handed adjustment that ensures the helmet cradles the shape of your head

Reasonable price – at R1799, its exceptional value for money for a feature-packed lightweight trail helmet

The SCOTT Argo is available in nine different colours.


Sand Beige

Fire Orange

Stellar Blue

Crystal Pink

Dark Moss Green
