Giro’s new Vanquish aero helmet – for the Robocops out there.
Giro’s new Vanquish helmet fuses aerodynamics with ample airflow, to create a hybrid design that’s best for fast, flat road racing. According to Giro, the aerodynamic savings make the Vanquish quicker than the lightweight, super-vented Synthe, and bring it to within 13% of Giro’s Aerohead TT helmet.
For the Robocops out there, the Vanquish will be available with a ‘shield’ – a mirrored Zeiss ‘ Vivid’ lens designed to improve contrast out on the road. ( When you’re at threshold, the lens’s broad design also makes it perfect for hiding any signs of suffering in your eyes…) GIRO VANQUISH MIPS R4 500 ( VISOR: R700) OMNICO. CO. ZA
