That's awesome, the teasing must be relentless. AERO POTS FOR EVERYONE!!!

It is official.
The pot slows you down.
"Normal" helmets are quicker. :)

My white size M, no visor came in at 282 g.
Not really a WW-helmet, but then again not the helmet I'd choose for a hot alpine day.

Looks like the shape of the Air Attack was initially based on the shape of EPA liner in the Selector.

These skateboard helmets pass as "new aero helmets".

On that note, I have a old Bern Macon carbon fiber I'll be trying for a few days to see how it compares to the Air Attack. I have to say, using my Giro Ionos for a few days after using the Air Attack for a week, IMO the latter is cooler. Those air inlets at the forehead do more to make your head feel cool than a bunch of vents at the top but with no vents against the forehead. I expect that the Bern will make me melt in comparison to either, and it certainly is heavy at 457 grams!

Same issue was covered here before. But not easy as it sounds. Skateboard helmets are different designed in the neck and air inlets.
Needs to remembered once more. The demand for more aero road helmets mainly first seen within the pro peloton with covered air inlets on "normal" road helmets in the passed years lead to the rebirth of the Giro Air Attack and now same story is re written at Scott and Specialized helmets.
Just not true that Giro came up with a new helmet and are "forcing" poor pros to use it. :)

Scott releases details on their helmet:

Thanks for the Scott link.
Here is a part of what they say:
"The story began one year ago when the ORICA-GreenEDGE riders approached SCOTT Sports to propose an evolution of the Vanish EVO helmet for flat and sprint stages. The team requested a helmet with the lowest drag coefficient possible, an advanced aero solution, a dynamic ventilation system, and of course the same great adjustable and comfortable fit."

Good to get it confirmed once more from Scott.
