Armstrong, Hamilton in new TT helmet
Cyclingnews.com has a quick intro of the new Giro Rev Six time trial helmet, that premiered in Sunday's prologue at the Dauphiné Libéré, worn by Lance Armstrong, Tyler Hamilton, and Viatcheslav Ekimov.
It's the response from Giro to new regulations requiring time-trial helmets to meet the same crash-protection standards as everyday helmets. Giro claims the helmet meets safety standards while having even less drag than the Rev Five helmet Armstrong wore last year, which was essentially a plastic shell with little protection built in.
Giro's rep suggests the new helmet is heavier and larger than the Rev Five, but of course drag is the main factor in the TT equation.
