How we tested

220 Triathlon Magazine - - KIT ZONE -

For the test here, we’ve picked nine of the best aero road hel­mets cur­rently avail­able and put them through their paces on the roads to as­sess ven­ti­la­tion, com­fort and us­abil­ity fea­tures such as the ratchet, buckle and straps. Safety fea­tures were ex­am­ined (all the hel­mets here come with EN1078 safety cer­tifi­cates and some have the Vir­gina Tech rat­ings-lead­ing MIPS) be­fore the most note­wor­thy six were taken to Eve­sham’s stel­lar Board­man Per­for­mance Cen­tre for wind-tun­nel test­ing at a va­ri­ety of yaw an­gles, tri-bar po­si­tions and speeds.
