This helmet will help you find your AERO ZONE.
I bought this helmet because I wanted to try a helmet with a visor that also did NOT have air vents on the front of the helmet. Keeping cool is a concern, but the air vents aren't nearly as 'aero'... Everytime I watched a professional TT on television (tour de france, etc.) I noted what kind of helmet they were using and if they had a visor. Most of the 'big guns' had visors and limited air vents. The potential issue I have with this helmet is sweat dripping down onto the visor. So far this hasn't been a problem, but I make sure to wear a sweat wicking head wrap to help alleviate the perspiration. If you can refrain from looking down, then you won't have much of an issue. Fortunately, the sweat doesn't form on the top of the visor, within your line of sight.
I ride with the full tail assembly... just makes sense... but notice I 'feel' the cross winds more. This is actually a good sign, my head is more intergrated with my bodyequipment.
This helmet isn't the best for transitions, so not sure I would buy it if I were doing duathlonstriathlons. I suppose you could take the visor out if you were doing a 70.3 or iron man distance and were concerned about over heating... but for the pure cycling TT event, this is definately going to help you get into a zone.
It is quiter in some ways... at least the wind doesn't rattle across your ear drum... it does, however, seem to amplifytrap the road noise.
I am excited to use this helmet this season, and recommend it.
Thank you for your feedback.
