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).
