Giro Aerohead MIPS Helmet Giro Aerohead MIPS Helmet
Most TT's and triathlons take place anywhere from late spring through early fall, often on some of the hottest days of the year. A TT/tri-specific lid can certainly speed up your ride, but not if it isn't built with enough ventilation to keep you cool. How to make "aero" helmets that save watts without leaving cyclists trapped inside a stifling bubble is a recurring challenge for helmet manufacturers. That's why we're impressed with the Giro Aerohead MIPS Helmet's wind-cheating profile and efficient venting system, which incorporates more cooling channels than the Aerohead Ultimate and features the added protection of Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS). On the outside, the Aerohead uses a pretty standard In-Mold construction; polycarbonate fused to EPS foam acts as an initial shock absorbing layer and keeps the helmet's efficient profile intact. Inside, a MIPS liner feels barely perceptible as you ride, but significantly reduces the likelihood of brain injury in the event of a crash. It's a technology that's becoming ubiquitous in helmets across disciplines because it rotates slightly upon impact to quell the damaging sloshing energy generated by certain impacts. After addressing safety, Giro devoted significant energy to developing its Wind Tunnel ventilation, aptly named for its ability to usher air internally through the helmet without impacting aerodynamic efficiency. You can ride tucked on your aerobars on a sweltering tri course and the helmet will deliver a breeze to cool your head while helping you slice through the wind faster than your competitors wearing regular road helmets. Other touches like a wrap-around ZEISS visor serve to make T1 faster and limit on-the-bike distractions, with the magnetic anchor giving you the freedom to flip the visor up quickly when you don't need it. Giro's Roc Loc Air fit system makes an appearance in the Aerohead as well, delivering simple, efficient adjustability to ensure the helmet stays in place throu...

Giro Selector Helmet Giro Selector Helmet
When Giro looked to up its aero game, it didn't just paste new stickers onto its Advantage helmet. It looked at the data and redesigned it to create the Giro Selector. This helmet is now a standard in the professional peloton and should be a part of your aero kit as well. Giro used wind tunnel testing to sculpt a shape that works with your position on the bike to lessen the drag coefficient. On the front end, you'll notice the eye shield. Not only does this minimize tear-inducing wind in your eyes, it also smooths the leading surface so that the air moves over it faster. An added benefit is that the shield also acts to block out excess wind noise. Two vents help direct the air through the helmet and out the back vents to cool your head. For those who prefer sunglasses, however, the shield is removable. On the other end, the tail of the Selector helmet is closed on the underside and comes in two lengths, 10mm and 45mm. Each is designed to work with your body position and the choice depends on how low your shoulders and arms are. The helmet should sit low and close to your back when you are in an aero position. To secure the Selector, Giro uses the Roc Loc TT system. Different from the older Roc Loc 5 system, the TT uses a spring leaf system to apply even tension to the front and back of your head in order to secure the helmet. The body of the helmet is an EPS-injected molded liner with the Giro SL Roll Cage system and a polycarbonate shell.

Lazer Wasp AIR Helmet with Inclination Sensor Lazer Wasp AIR Helmet with Inclination Sensor
The recent trends in aerodynamic headwear may be marking an end to the highly elongated and stabby time trial helmets of past years that acted like wind sails the second the tail separated from the spine curve. As such, the Lazer Wasp AIR Helmet with Inclination Sensor replaces the traditionally-shaped Wasp with a shorter, more blunt-tailed profile with a wider range of aerodynamic positioning than the old, neck-slammed helmet options. Adding in Lazer's new Inclination Sensor technology means this helmet isn't just aerodynamic, it helps you maintain position even when riding on the rivet and just trying to make it through the home stretch. In addition to all the wind-cheating design, Lazer's Inclination Sensor is what really sets this helmet apart from the swarm of other TT head covers on the market. This little device integrates seamlessly into the back of the helmet, safely out of the way of the airstream, to provide sound and/or vibration feedback when your head moves away from your ideal positioning as a gentle reminder to get back into proper form. You (and your coach) determine the desired position and program the Inclination Sensor specific to that position, with additional programmability around specific angle of diversion to trigger feedback. The sensor's battery will last through six to eight hours of continuous feedback, and is easily rechargeable via USB. The Wasp Air features a streamlined design and an integrated eye shield to create smooth airflow and reduce drag. While riders will see the most advantages when looking forward, the Wasp Air's shaping allows for a similar reduction in drag when looking down. You'll still go fastest focusing on the course ahead, but the helmet won't turn into a parachute when you peek down to check in on your watts, speed, and mileage left to the finish line. The Wasp Air's customizable fit comes complements of Lazer's ATS Advanced Turnfit System and its Adjustable Head Basket, which combine to provide nearly count...

Louis Garneau P-06 Helmet Louis Garneau P-06 Helmet
Triathlons and TTs can be pricey, since the equipment is exclusive to these events and not as widely distributed. Louis Garneau hears your pain. The Louis Garneau P-06 TT Helmet is packing the same features as many of the top-shelf offerings from other manufacturers at a fraction of the cost. One look at the P-06 and it's immediately apparent that this is a high-quality, high-performance piece of equipment. The first thing you'll notice about the P-06 is the dimpled texture on the top of the helmet. These dimples create turbulence, which makes you more slippery. It's the same principle that golf ball manufacturers rely on to make golf balls fly farther and straighter. The pointed tail on the helmet also makes it more aero by allowing air to flow smoothly over your back. The two large vents at the front of the helmet allow cooling air in, and moisture evacuation channels in the helmet use this airflow to pull moisture away from your skin. The patented Spiderlock Pro II is a helmet stabilizing system with lightly ventilated polymer neck support. It can be easily tightened on the head using only one hand, and its inclination can be adjusted to several positions. Because your helmet is worn next to your skin, Garneau incorporated sealed Airdry padding. This durable padding molds to your head for comfort and is fully washable.

POC Tempor Helmet POC Tempor Helmet
If you look back at the history of stage races, you'll see that the margins of victory (or defeat) are agonizingly small. Eight seconds here and 15 seconds there isn't much after one to three weeks of racing. In short time trials, the gaps tend to be more like two seconds, so it's easy to understand that even the smallest aerodynamic advantages -- shoe covers, aerodynamic gloves, and the like -- can add up. The POC Tempor Raceday Helmet, though, is anything but a small advantage. After extensive testing in its WATTS aerodynamics lab, POC calculated that the Tempor Raceday can save you 67 seconds over a standard road helmet in a 40km time trial, which could easily be the difference between walking away with a victory or finishing in an ignominious 17th. Most aerodynamic helmets are designed to reduce drag on themselves, but POC claims that the Tempor Raceday lowers air resistance over your whole body as well as your head. Two large vents in the front of the helmet pull in cooling air and channel it out through two small vents at the back, which direct the air around your shoulder blades to reduce resistance when you're in your steepest tuck position. The upper and lower shell of the Tempor Raceday overlap seamlessly to further reduce drag, and a detachable visor provides a seamless surface for the air to pass over. Of course, a helmet's ultimate goal is to keep you safe, and the Tempor Raceday does so with high-quality EPS foam liner that is thicker at key impact areas. The seamless shell also disperses forces across the helmet, so you won't see too many stars if you overcook the final corner on a rainy day.
