Anyone know what's the name of the new model Team SKY are rolling around with at the Tour de France?

Looked like it had 'Razr' on the front of it when Froome was being interviewed on TV here.

Protone helmet developed in with Team Sky. Apparently the helmet has one of the lowest drag coefficients of any ventilated helmet, and fast rates of heat dissipation also.

Looks like they made some changes to the retention system in the back as well. Slimmed down version of the Up-N-Down?
Looks like I made a new 90 Proof friend

It looks like the offspring of an older Kask helmet with a POC...

The Protone is a nice looking aero road helmet. I could see myself wearing one of those. What's the price?

Article says it'll go on sale in 2015 so let's hope this one doesn't end up like the bambino; see it on sky for two years and then you can have one for $500.

I really like the POC influence..rounded with more back of head protection.
