Designing Speed: Aerohead II

Designing Speed: Aerohead II

The first Giro Sport Design was called the Advantage. It helped riders cheat the wind by blurring the lines between equipment and bodies. In 1986, Giro helped a young American win the Tour de France by a mere 8 seconds in the first Aerohead. The quest to engineer speed continues with Aerohead II and our partners, Team Visma | Lease a Bike.

“It’s truly a dream to develop a helmet with Giro. It really gives us confidence as a team to know that together we have created the fastest helmet possible. When I was a young rider, my idols wore Giro helmets - I can’t believe now I get my turn.”

- Jonas Vingegaard, 2x Tour de France Winner

“When we began discussions with Visma | Lease a Bike, their meticulous attention to progressing the technical side of the sport immediately resonated with us. We knew this was the right team to collaborate with and design our fastest time trial helmet ever.”

- Warren Gravely, VP of Merchandising

“I’ve dreamed of the fastest helmet ever. It was incredible to work for months and months on Aerohead II, gathering data and measurements from the team, pushing right to the limits of UCI regulations. To finally be able to go to the wind tunnel in Eindhoven, put one on Jonas, and see the numbers that proved we’d succeeded was truly special. And of course, then we pushed the design even further, because that’s what Giro does.”

- Ash Lewin, Industrial Designer
