I'm really glad the UCI is so focused on measuring sock length but doing NOTHING about these atrocities!!  It's embarrassing for the riders and makes the sport look bad to have such terrible looking helmets.

In my opinion, still hard to beat the helmet Indurain used or the Giro lancy-pants wore up until early 2004.  Before the  UCI ruled that aero helmets still needed to offer a slight bit of protection versus the milk-jug polyethylene fairings Ullrich was using at the time. 

In any case, those helmets looked cool!!  But these new things make the riders look like a Funko Pop character.

Hahaha, WTF?! Between that and the POC Starwars helmets and the headsocks that is a lot of bizzaro.

I don't care how fast that lid is....I'm not wearing it.

But concraps to Sweet Protection for taking the title of "Goofiest Helmet Ever"

Specialized and Kask had both made strong pushes for title after the POC Tempor, but this one firmly wins.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Agree with OC look like the Star Wars helmets on the Death Star fire control room. Which is to say awful.
How about no helmets for time trials.

Two questions. Do these spaceballs protect the user from Sidewinder missiles and are they safe from being mistaken for a wayward balloon by an over-anxious F22 pilot?

Btw the sock height rule is there for a reason.
