Bevan Docherty was the only pro we noticed riding the Giro Air Attack helmet. I think it looks like a nice midway point between a full aero lit and a well-ventilated road helmet. But of course, I think its full advantage is realized when you use the integrated visor, which Docherty left out. Most pros do, so that they can keep their eyewear sponsors happy. But in my opinion, an integrated visor is a huge benefit while riding in aero, where shades can slide off your nose, and visibility can be compromised by the rims.
One of our favorite types of features are the ones that take a close-up, zoomed-in look at the actual setups pros are racing with. This year, we noticed that more and more pros are turning away from the traditional aerodrink-type bottles that dominated the field for a solid decade, and are moving towards BTA setups that we've discussed many times here on TriRig.
