When you have gone as light as you can what's left? speed?
This thing better have dimples or I'm not buying it.

...and the article's opening photo does provide unequivocal proof that we men have our brains hardwired directly to our family jewels.
He's even wearing a bull t-shirt! Hahahaha
Sorry, I did not get to the article after that.

I love Giro helmets, but I noticed this helmet was used very little in the Tour and with no success. I know Garmin and Rabobank riders wore it in a couple stages in the first week, but it disappeared after that and wasn't seen again during any of the few remaining sprint stages. Millar won from a breakaway in a more traditional helmet.... the same with Van de Velde when he came second.
