Thanks guys.
Canada:did not know about this though not available in the US yet?
eBay: beside one eBay seller I have seen them on order at many places like bike24. but these take orders with pointing out to a April or unknown delivery.

I have one on order from the guy selling them on eBay(non visor) should be here in a week, and a visor model on order through my local shop(mid april delivery?). The helmet should be nice for cool weather races.

Why Giro Air Attack? Bring back old Cinelli style aero helmets from 70'. More aero and bonus points for style. Mix that with some vintage glasses and you're as aero as a razorblade.

because the giro air attack is a semi aero design with air holes to breathe. same could be questioned when pro's few years ago first started to tape their helmet holes in street races.
time will tell but I predict giro big sales with the AA.

ultyguy not giros fault. market just was not ripe for it because it looked just not like the design the consumer was getting used to. and aerodynamics were not that hyped as it is right now. now it is the right product at the right time.

Ah ah I received that brancale helmet back in the days as a birthday gift when I was a kid.

Needless to say that it was hard to hide my deception to get such an ugly piece of kit.
