Aero Helmets: Louis Garneau Rocket

Yesterday I took my new Louis Garneau Rocket aero helmet out for my long ride to test it out. I didn’t know what to expect but if the wind tunnel tests were true, then I should be using something which would have a dramatic effect on my cycling aerodynamic efficiency.
Wow what a noticeable difference. I especially noticed it while pedaling in windy conditions. It was noticeably easier to pedal with winds and headwinds, as I didn’t feel as much effort in my legs. The effect was most dramatic when I was in aero position. It made me want to pedal in aero position the whole time! When I sat upright, the effect was much lessened. But hunkering down on my aero bars with the back cone of the helmet laying against my back somehow made me slice through the wind much easier.
I’m sold! Can’t wait to try it out at Ironman Brazil.
