Isn't that considered an aero/semi aero helmet? Kinda like the Synthe? I just found a synthe online for $120 so I think im going to try it out. Also, my head circumference measures just under 21.75", this is right on the border of Small and Medium. Any suggestion as to which size I should go with?I've used aero road helmets in the past and I'm back to a normal helmet (Kask Protone) for racing and everyday riding. The comfort and ventilation is incredibly important as I live in a hot region. Buying a hemet in hopes of saving a few grams of drag based on manufacturer test is a wild goose chase as the helmet rider interface is unique. That aero helmet may be less aero than your current helmet. So...I guess I'm against the idea for everyday types to racer types.
I'd say the Kask Infinity is the road aero helmet but, I honestly don't know? I think the marketing dept at bike companies are getting pretty liberal with the word "aero" to sell.Isn't that considered an aero/semi aero helmet? Kinda like the Synthe?

Yeah, Giro says the Synthe is more aero than the Air Attack. I'd imagine the infinity is more aero when closed, but I think the protone is marketed similarly to the synthe. Just ordered the synthe, $120 was too good to pass up. Hope the small is large enough.I'd say the Kask Infinity is the road aero helmet but, I honestly don't know?

As far as the Giro Synthe is concerned I'd view the Giro Air Attack as a more aero road helmet. I rode the Synthe last year as it was our team lid. Great helmet all around. I would not hesitate to recommend it.
Specialized Prevail is another helmet that I've seen classified as an aero helmet but, the Evade is clearly designed to be the leader for Specialized in this area.
So what I'm saying is for Giro go Synthe v. Air Attack. For Kask go with the Protone v. Infinity. Specialized go with the Prevail v. Evade etc...
How well does that shield block the wind from your eyes, and how strong is the tinting on it? Also how far away from your brow is it? Looks like it ends up quite close to your face unlike the Giro shield helmet.I've been using the Bell ProStar for a couple months. Bought it primarily for the winter - the ability to open and close the vents on the fly is great. And yeah - having a shield that doesn't get sweaty or fog up is a HUGE plus. Haven't worn it in warm temps yet.
Seconded. I haven't ridden with another brand, so I can't compare, but I like my Ballista. Haven't used it yet on a *really* hot day, so I can't say for sure how it breathes, but so far it works well for me. Also, the price is very reasonable, relatively speaking.I recently purchased a Bontrager Ballista. I having owned Bell, Giro and Rudy Project, I think the Ballista fits the best. We shall see how it does in the summer vs my Aeon.
