Anyone know who makes the TT helmet as used by the olympic track team? The visor looks awesome and i have not seen anything like it?


Any one shed any light on the subject??

    I recall reading that the Team GB helmets are made in Italy but the manufacturer wasn't disclosed. They are part of the "secret squirrel" project.
    I’m a sprinter – I warmed up yesterday.
  • That might explain why i can't find anything about them. the visors are awesome. I am looking around for a descent helmet with a dark visor (although the summers nearly gone).

    They may be OK for 4k on the track - but I wouldnt want to wear one for 112 miles in the sun ? I'd look at the more conventional TT helmets out there.

    Was after the long helmet rather than a short sprint helmet.

    cheers!!
