Teams reported to us that there's a simple reason why such helmets are taking over in the pro peloton: verifiable speed.

The LG Course isn't....looks like normal lid, except for the rounded back.



And the Evade, in some of the color schemes isn't too bad.....god awful in black, though.


Get those straps trimmed or tucked under… flapping like that, sheesh, negating the benefit of the areo lid.
And zip up the jersey 'ya might as well be wearing a parachute

You do realize that the riders and team managers are paid spokesman for the equipment manufactures don't you? Mario : This is the best bike I've ever ridden.

I have that helmet (LG Course). I am so fast now, that I can't even keep up with myself. It's a good road helmet and it doesn't look hideous.

But, let's not kid ourselves, we all look ridiculous in cycling gear regardless of what Rapha videos try to prove.

I, of course, just remembered while typing this that no one in Rapha videos actually wear helmets because apparently brain injuries are much more attractive.

I think it is even more simple than that. Rapha is all about looking good on a bike. There are ZERO great looking helmets out there. Certainly not up to Rapha's level of stylishness.

I looked into the manufacturing possibilities of getting a basic helmet modeled after the classic hairnet certified and to the marketplace. It is just not worth it for a small company. One person crashes wearing your helmet and sues and, just like that, your company is bankrupt from legal fees.
