Louis Garneau Superleggera Helmet $159.95
Look fast and ride fast
We hear a lot about aerodynamics in helmet design. Few helmets combine flawless design with top of the line technology the way the Louis Garneau Superleggera Helmet does.The teardrop design of the Superleggera Helmet greatly reduces drag when seconds count and the wind is threatening your time. The dimpled frontal area makes your TT’s faster by improving laminar airflow (think golf balls), and the adjustable, detachable rack-and-pinion fit mechanism (think cars) stabilizes the helmet on your noggin.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Had a real bad crash few nights ago because of some unsafe cyclists, but that's not the point.
Despite the fact that I went head down first at around 30-35km/h, this helmet actually kept my head protected so much it probably had save my life. The aftermath was just some really sore muscles and painful bones, but still fortunate. The crack was all the way on one side due to the impact, but impressively it is still intact despite the damage, keeping my head all the way protected. The visor also prevent my spectacles from damaged. Overall, I am very impressed with it. Will purchase it again.
Louis Garneau Superleggera Helmet
I love it. First of all every LG helmet I've used has given me great fit just like this one did. The benefits of the golf ball dimples and the shape of the helmet were noticeable. Of course it had less wind noise when compared to a normal slotted road helmet. It didn't feel heavy and the cooling vents do work.
Wearing my Louis Garneau Superleggera Helmet
Here I am posing for the camera in my driveway after competing in a duathlon with my new helmet. I loved it! It didn't feel heavy, the benefits are noticeable. Having the visor was great too!
Looks fast is fast
My first aero helmet. It works well and makes a loud noise to scare your buddies when you zoom by. Airflow obviously isn't as good as a road helmet, but vents enough as long as you keep moving.
If you've got big ears, the ear flaps rub a bit at speed. I had to tweak the ear flaps a bit so my dumbo ears could fit comfortably.
Cool air flow & a time saver
contray to other reviews about this helmet ( not nessisarily on this site) this helmet is quit effiecient with air flow, comfort fit, and indeed does shave off time on rides/races... it actually works and to boot it's a mighty fine looking helmet for your brain.
Great TT Helmet For A Great Price
These helmets have a great fit and really fast with or with out the visor. Also really cool that you can customize the helmet with the stickers that are included.
Looks really cool with the Windscreen installed.
The helmet is very comfortable and it actually BREETH in it. Many tt helmets just feel like you are wearing a plastic bag over your head. You can feel the air flow with this tt helmet, allowing you to stay cooler when your giving it your all.

Not a review, or a question, but a comment:...
Not a review, or a question, but a comment: dimpling does NOT promote laminar air flow. Dimpling produces a turbulent boundary layer (the opposite of laminar), which mixes higher-energy airflow nearer to the surface of the helmet, thereby allowing flow to stay attached through larger flow angle changes, such as those around the back of a helmet or a golf ball. That's how dimpling reduces drag.
