|Giro Aerohead MIPS Actual Weight - Medium|
The Giro Aerohead is appearing in the wild. I actually just got mine today. I picked up a medium (55cm-59cm) and it fits true to size in comparison to my past aero helmets. For the weight weenies out there, mine measures in at a hefty 448 grams but given the aerodynamic promises of this helmet that will be very easily offset. You can get it next day via Amazon Prime: Giro Aerohead Mips
I wanted to briefly discuss my helmet choice for the remainder of the year. I do not have a helmet sponsor, nor would I want one. Having a helmet sponsor costs more than it is worth for almost every sponsored athlete unless it just happens to be the exact right helmet for the person.
My previous helmet was a helmet that tested well on many people at ERO. ERO is a company that tests aerodynamics outside the wind tunnel and is usually done on an indoor track. That helmet was the LG P-09. Although I hadn't actually tested the LG P-09 myself, given that it tested so well for so many people I decided that probability would dictate it being a good buying decision. I did happen to go to the wind tunnel this year and the wind tunnel confirmed the LG P-09 was the fastest helmet for me.

The helmet is nice, it feels nice, it feels sturdy, and it feels fast. It is hot however and I did have some fogging issues with this at the super humid Ironman Cozumel 70.3 race. Luckily you can easily pull the visor, and flip it upside-down on the helmet. There are internal magnets to hold it in place in this second position and they are fairly strong. Over hundreds of miles, the visor never fell off once in either position.
Overall, this helmet is a winner and my aero helmet choice until something better comes along. The following is public marketing data from Giro. Please note, I purchased this helmet with my own money and have no support from Giro. If you want to help support my writing I encourage you purchase via this link as that helps a little!!
