The idea behind the AeroTop was plain and simple. A very aerodynmaic helmet that was still comfortable to wear and relatively practical while riding. We measured the benefits of the more old school, longer shapes versus the newer, shorter shapes. Since both have their advantages, we decided on an in-between length. One that sill offers the aerodycnamic closure between head and back of the rider, but without the crosswind disadvantages of the older deisgns. We looked at several surface treatments like dimples or vortex generators, but they didn't offer satisfactory results. We did however, reduce the frontal surface of the helmet and designed a clean integration of the visor and hidden anchor points. When riding time trials these are points that count.
The ventilation opening is situated in the one place where the air flow is relatively static, right in the front of the helmet. the integrated visor (BHE-63 FaceShield) is extra thin to prevent visual distortion, yet thick enough to not deform under the forces of air flow. The wide rear part of the AeroTop line up tith a riders back and two hsarp lines in the tail section of the helmet are designed to release the flow of air for less drah.
The fit of AeroTop is uqual to BBBs Icarus helmet. Available in size M*52-58cm) and colours matt white and matt black.
