    Aero Helmets

    Just a quick question, are Aero Helmets (Giro Advantage etc) legal for Triathlon races like in road cycling TT's?

    Most out are. Ones off the top of my head are the Louis Garneau, Rudy Project, Limar and Las. Though so far the Bell Meteor 2, and the Giro Advantage, and Advantage 2 are NOT. (the advantage is the euro model, and the advantage 2 is the proposed us model that has not passed north american helmet standards).

    As long as the helmet meets the CE standard, you should be fine.
