    Fit is the most important thing.
    Nobody will know about how aero it is for you. You'd need to test that in a wind tunnel.

    I meant in general. If you’ve no idea then don’t respond!

    The same helmet will have different results on different riders, nobody rides in the same position. If you don't want information - why ask questions ?

    it is comfy and looks good. As for aero benefits? Will leave that to the pros

    Thank shiznit 76. That’s all I wanted to know really. Sensible answer to my question.

    Did you try the AR14? I find it frustrating that there are no magazine reviews. In the last few weeks I’ve seen the AR14 (interestingly not the newer AR15) adorning heads from Caleb Ewan’s in the Tour to Georgia Taylor-Brown winning Olympic medals. I figure it must be decent, although there is a great history of pros being required to use kit by sponsors that they don’t actually love, so a proper review would be nice.

    I use my AR14 in preference to my Corsa Light on all but the hottest days. Relatively light, fits my bonce, decent range of fit and comfort and I like the fact I rarely see it on the roads of Kent or Surrey.

    My aero lid of choice is the Scott Cadence, in fact I very recently posted up a site that was selling them with huge discount - don't see many of them around here either, only one in fact, and for me thay are very underrated.
