This. Doing TT position testing with Racer Ex last weekend we used three different helmets and a variety of positions (Univex/Giro Advantage2 and the new Rudy) and we found that in my current position the Giro Advantage 2 was faster by nearly 1km/ph while the reverse was true in the hands up Flandis style the Univex was the fastest (and this set was the fastest of all). Rudy was the slowest in all the runs, but again it really has everything to do with your position and body type.
