How about Bontrager Circuit MIPS? I'm using one.


Have a safe & enjoyable ride!

You might want to try buying from this online store chainreactioncycles.com

i got 2 helmets from there, got it 40-50% sale, plus the delivery charge and it is still cheaper than getting it from store.

I love this - http://www.elitehelmets.com/bell-rouge-review/ - probably not suitable for a bike, but I still want it lol

Personally feel Giro Indicator is the most value for money, got it from Bike Link Trading at Yishun.

"Formerly posted by rbc1891: Anyone with knowledge how much help the aero helmet can improve average/maximum speed cycling with the road junctions/traffic around here? I am musing if 40km/H can become 42km/H with the road junctions, slip roads, traffic, here."


there's two parts of answers for your question..

1) aero helmet vs normal helmet

2) and junction / traffic.


for 1) aero vs road helmet, time saved is 30-60 seconds for every hour of riding.

  • Sprint triathlons – 15-30 seconds

  • Olympic distance triathlons – 30-60 seconds

  • Half Ironman Distance triathlons – 1.5 to 2.5 minutes

  • Ironman Distance triathlons – 3-5 minutes

2) above data is from race or continuous riding.
with traffic/junction... we have not seen anyone with aero helmet in town yet.
unless rider is someone like yourself seasoned pro.
may be you should start first... aerohelmet and bell on aero bars..

"

Many thanks for sharing with us. But I am not seasoned pro (salt, spices...added). Ventilation in our climate/weather need to be considered. May get fever before the end of the trip/race?
