How bad is the cooling on those new bowling-ball style lids out of curiosity?

Looks Great!

[LOL....yeah RIGHT!]
If you're worried about how you look...cycling ain't for you.

No one thinks the spandex clad neon love chickens on the road look good.

A bit biased ehh? (cup half full/half empty) :)
Cooling is just fine if you are using the helmet as intended, not something to wear on the C rides.
Luca seemed to be happy with the helmet when he crossed the line the other day (even pointed at it).

I saw a bunch of them at the races last weekend.

A number of them in the Giro today (without shields) and previous days despite warmer temps, 84F today.

They're actually more head-shaped than bowling ball shaped. Same shape as mainstream helmets and about 1 cm smaller in length and width, just without the big vents and numerous fins sticking out the back.

There's a couple of other threads on this helmet discussing it characteristics and relative ventilation performance.

I like this pic of Tejay:

How are the exterior dimensions of this helmet vs a standard Giro road helmet?

I hate the mushroom-head look, so I'm wondering if with less holes, the Air Attack doesn't need to be as thick to meet the same safety requirements.

Thanks!

I have a hard time seeing the screen on my Garmin with my rose tinted photochromatic sunglasses. That shield looks pretty dark. Anybody using a Garmin 500 with this shield and if so does it inhibit reading the numbers?
