    Astana and Garmin Helmets

    Sorry if this has been covered before.
    Not wearing the Ionos or even the Atmos? They look like the Saros but not quite.
    It seems like if they were something brand new the would have more/bigger vents.

    And now looking though the pictures I am even more confused.

    maybe they are a little bit lighter? At this level in does in fact help to lose tiny amounts of weight. 50-100g would probably make a small difference.

    I think there's already a thread about this.

    Thanks for that, I figured it was something new but at the same time it wasn't as extreme looking as some of the other new stuff.

    Yeah, the "new" helmet carries the same name of the helmet originally designed for Lemond...

    I have a feeling they are going to be ungodly expensive. If nothing else it will mean I can finally get an Atmos for a good price.
