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.

You can see Wiggins or maybe VdV I think in the back of this picture from today

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.

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.
