edited June 2011 in Road buying advice
I am looking at buying a TT Helmet and have narrowed it down to either of these based on price and the need for it to fit a large head (61cm)!
Any comments on either or both would be appreciated - pros/cons etc.
Thanks.
Still thinking!

    I have both, much prefer the LAS.

    The Giro is very wide, also has no visor, where as the LAS isn't as wide and has a built in visor.

    I much prefer having a visor to wearing glasses, not least as I find I'm always looking at the rim or over the top of my glasses in the TT position...

    I wear prescription glasses anyway, I just prefer to have a visor on my TT lid.

    The other thing between them is ventilation, the Giro has a lot more, so if you get a hot head then that might be a factor, but the more ventilation you get, the more drag, so its a toss up.
