Louis Garneau Superleggera Aero Helmet

Ever golf?  The Louis Garneau Superleggera aero helmet has the properties of a golf ball to encourage better laminar flow.  This is the same technology that allows golf balls to fly straighter and farther.  Not even close to being a physicist – I studied philosophy in undergrad, I ended up reading up on the dimples in golf balls to get a basic understanding of how better airflow is encourage.  Interesting to learn something new.

Extremely light, this helmet weighs-in at a mere 12 ounces.  The helmet has a total of 5 vents. Up front are two vents that follow through to the rear three large vents for maximal airflow as an evacuation channel.  The Superleggera comes in two colors – Red/Black and White/Silver.

Interested in seeing more aero helmets?  You can find the Superleggera and more at our Aero Helmets page. For those of you new to aero helmets they are also known as triathlon helmets, aerodynamic helmets, or TT helmets (TT stands for time trial).

Giro Selector Aero Helmet

Having been long anticipated, the Giro Selector Aero Helmet made its made debut at time trials earlier this year. Specifically built for uncompromising time trial use, the Giro Selector features an eye shield and tail section, making it a unique aero helmet for the year. We’re sure this will quickly become a favorite triathlon helmet for triathletes.

I got a sneak peek a few weeks ago, and snapped some photographs.  Light and sturdy, these helmets are a departure from the Giro Advantage 2.  In particular, the helmet doesn’t have bendable flaps that goes over the ears.    Also notably different are the lack of front vents, adding to its aero attributes.  However, this may be of concern for those who race farther than an Olympic distance, as front vents become more desirable in longer distances or more specifically when heat is an issue.
