Since 'aero' is the future of everything, the be all and end all of everything that is road cycling, the bee's knees and the flower's nectar, I'd like to start a thread about helmets that are marked or marketed as being "aero" while not being TT/Tri helmets necessarily.

Besides the Giro Air Attack (pictured) what else is out there?

And there's this one by POC http://www.pocsports.com/en/product/1559/tempor

...for Mario and anyone else who's willing to sacrifice dignity for a handful of seconds...

The POC Tempor is a TT helmet though, no? The tail indicates it will form to the shoulders while in the TT position.

A more normal looking helmet: Louis Garneau course

Oops you're right, I saw that it was termed as a road bike helmet but specifically for time trial actually..

Spectacular? It looks like it should be worn from the pink Power Ranger.

I was told April for the Giro. I'll probably get one and use it as a TT helmet since I don't want to fork over for the Kask

That Casco looks like some prop from the Judge Dredd film set. (I think the pink is actually red, but shows up a bit off on screen)

Seriously, I would rock that just to piss the fashion police off.
