Deconstructing Product Design
This helmet hearkens back to the earliest days of triathlon, then triathlon bikes were basically road bikes with either the Scott Tri-bars or the Profile Aero-1 bars in place of the drop bars.
It was also the helmet that Greg LeMond wore in the 1989 Tour de France when he squeaked by Laurent Fignon in the final stage and won by 8 seconds.
Though this helmet would be seen as relatively primitive by today’s standards over 20 years later, in it is the basic planform that underlies all modern time trial helmets.
Giro, the company that made the AeroHead remains one of the premier vendors of time trial helmets for the cycling elite.
