I FINALLY GOT A NEW AERO HELLMET... what was I waiting for????????
My previous aero helmet was the Giro with the face shield. It looked cool, was rather hot... and was appropriated by my oldest when he came down with a serious case of I wanna race bikes... never to be seen again.
Yes, I know aero helmets are on par with aero wheels in terms of speed gains.
Yes, I know aero helmets cost a fraction - 10% - of aero wheels.
Yes, yes, yes... I dough kno' whattheheck I was thinkin'... why the hellmet did I wait so long?... so much speed to be gained for so few doll hairs.
If there was ever a ride to test it it was tonight...
... we were shedding riders from mile 0, blitzing the campground at 30mph, the gaggle of geese in full flight...
... and I felt pertty dern good, making all the breaks that mattered and surprising myself in the long, long, long sprint - not a V, but def in the hunt.
Is this scientific?
The science has already been done... aero helmet = aero wheels.
It's just me lettin' ya know my new aero helmet feels extrasuperfast, has great cooling properties, and makes me look even sexier - not easy.
If there's a knock, it's that you can't flip your glasses upside down and slide into the helmet.
This is FRO - For Race Only...
... and it's fast as hell.
Of course, I chose black... 'cause black shoes and black helmets make great kit frames. No black isn't hotter, especially when you're going this fast.
Now remember... fast wheels are $3000, fast helmet is $300... speed gains, according to pointy heads, are about equal... costs not even close.
Also remember... that if you're part of the PEDALposse, you save 25% with your special code.
If yer not part of the PEDALposse, use SAVE10.
