2004 Giro Pneumo differences?

Hi there. Does anybody know if there's any difference between the new 2004 Giro Pneumo helmets and the old 2003 models? I couldn't really spot any in pictures or small write-ups that I've seen.

Velo,
I don't think there are any differences in the Pneumo,
all research went into the new helmet (forget the name)
that previewed at TdF on USPS team. expensive helmet
something like $279 for the USPS lonestar lance armstrong edition.

Okay, thanks lotek. That's what I thought, but I just wanted to make sure. The new helmet is called the Atmos if I remember correctly.

Someone was mentioning to me that the Atmos is being made out of kevlar and will cost around $235.00, and will supposedly offer more protection.

That seems like an awful lot of money, but there are shoes that cost that much. Which is more important: your feet or your head? It's a rhetorical question. No one need answer.

The only difference is that, the 04's and late 03's don't have a visor compared to the earlier 03's. If you see the 04's , it does not have the hole where the visor is attached. They also made the color design differently from previous 03's but the same in number of vents. The high end helmet now is the " Giro Atmos ".

Yeah but thats only for the USPS model since Postal didn't ride
that helmet after the TdF last year, and will be riding the new Atmos
model.
I didn't think the Pneumo ever had a visor, I thought that was
one of the distinctions between road and MTB helmets.
