One Fast Hat

justalby justalJul 2nd 2012
Looks a though I've bought myself some time with my new aero helmet... I've only used it once so it's impossible to tell if it really does provide me with an advantage as it could just have been that the wind was on my side today. However, over the past three weeks I've ridden the same 13.2 mile time trial course to gauge my time.

1st time without an aero helmet: 35:50
2nd time without an aero helmet: 35:46 (4seconds faster)
3rd time with an new aero helmet: 34:35 (a massive 1 minute 11 seconds faster)

Could it all be down to the pointy hat?

Could be the hat....or maybe it's your mind that thinks you're faster with the hat...either way you are faster... hooray!

P.S. I'm sure the tour de France boys have blocked their helmet vents up for a reason!

Yeah, but have 'the boys in France' blocked their helmet vents because it makes them faster or because it sells more kit for their sponsors!! :)
