Giro Air Attack Helmet 2013
HELMETS MARKED AS "AVAILABLE" IN STOCK AT GIRO AND WILL COME WITH A 4-5 DAY DELAY. HELMETS MARKED AS "IN STOCK" ARE AT GLORY CYCLES AND WILL SHIP WITHIN 24 HOURS.
It took a little getting used to the first time we saw this helmet in the pro peloton - Robbie Hunter wore it in the 2012 tour's opening stages and it looked like a blast from the past. After some time we have become more accustomed to the idea and now feel at home with what look to us like "more speed"
Idea for the track and crit racer the Giro air attack is an interesting revision on everything we know about the road helmet.
Until now, you couldn't really have all three of these attributes in a single design. Aerodynamic efficiency was compromised by ventilation. Weight was compromised by cooling or the added weight of longer, aerodynamic designs.
The Air Attack ends the compromise.
The Air Attack™ is whole new form of helmet, combining a compact aerodynamically-optimized design with a revolutionary ventilation system that matches the cooling power of strategically-placed vents and internal channels with enhanced airflow via the Roc Loc® Air system. The combination of light weight and aerodynamically-efficient design plus highly-effective cooling means that a rider's body not only encounters less drag, but also has more energy available for generating power, enhancing the rider's overall efficiency.
For road racing, criteriums and long solo efforts, the Air Attack™ slices through the wind* with 97% of the cooling efficiency you get with our ultra-light, ultra-cool Aeon™ helmet, and 11% less wind averaged aerodynamic drag.
For triathlon and long-distance time trials, the Air Attack™ Shield offers 28% more cooling power with only a 11% increase in the wind averaged drag compared to our Selector™ helmet, which has the lowest drag of any production aero helmet with an optical shield we've tested (in fact, less drag than a bare headform).
The result? A helmet you can use for more types of riding, and that allows your body moves through the air with less resistance, and a more efficient engine, giving you a boost of free speed.
It's a revolution in helmet design and performance, from the leader in helmets, Giro.
The Air Attack will be available in three sizes (S,M,L) with weight estimated at 264 grams for the Air Attack (no visor) and 296 grams for the Air Attack Shield (with visor) The Air Attack will price at $200, with the Air Attack Shield (with two visors, a clear and reflective smoke tint) pricing at $240 .
