Giro Introduces the Air Attack Helmet Jun 25, 2012

Giro‘s newest helmet design looks like the cross between a TT helmet and a road helmet. That’s exactly what the Air Attack helmet is. Read up:

“Giro, the cycling world’s design leader since 1985, announced today the Air AttackTM, defining the next generation of cycling helmets. With a systematic approach to design and wind tunnel–tested performance, the Air AttackTM offers reduced aerodynamic drag, light weight and tremendous cooling power. Taken together, these factors can help riders to use their power more efficiently, creating what Giro calls “Free Speed”. The Air Attack will be available in two versions – including one with a magnetically-anchored optical shield, with MSRP of $200 USD and $240 USD respectively. The helmet will be available in Spring 2013.”

Shown above is the helmet without the Carl Zeiss Vision shield, to see more, check out a video below.
