Lazer Volante – their fastest ever TT helmet?
At an rrp of $364.95, this is Lazer’s top-end pro TT helmet for general release later in the year. However, it will likely be used in anger in the Tour de France Time Trial of 2020 by Team Sunweb & Team Jumbo-Visma (19 Sept). This Time Trial is on the penultimate day of the Tour and will probably be the decider for the GC, almost certainly this helmet will be used by Primož Roglič, Steven Kruijswijk and Tom Dumoulin.
You can see from the images, below, that this doesn’t look as aero as some TT helmets do but then how they look and how they behave aerodynamically are two potentially different things. Obviously this has been super-optimised in wind tunnels ad infinitum and Lazer claims it to be their fastest ever.
