Aero Helmets, when worn for a triathlon or similar race undoubtedly receive a few glances - thanks to their distinctive, aerodynamic shape. Aero Helmets are a popular choice however, for a number of reasons - as well as keeping your head safe from the risk of falls and injury during a triathlon, aero helmets help reduce drag, allowing you to cycle and travel faster, securing a better time.
Aero Helmets really came into the mainstream during the 1980’s, when aero helmets were simply designed to provide a more aerodynamic profile than a head without a helmet. Protection was not important during this time, and this continued until 2003 - when legislation changed, meaning that any helmet worn had to provide head protection.
This gave cycling helmet manufacturers a new challenge, as well as being more aerodynamic - helmets now also had to accommodate bulky materials to protect the head in case of a fall. Today, Aero helmets provide both aerodynamic benefits as well as protecting the head from falls.
These helmets are the product of years and years of testing, with endless experiments in wind tunnels - reducing drag and enabling riders to get ahead of their competition, with a sleeker, more aerodynamic riding profile.
