Catlike Chrono Aero Plus helmet£149.99

Pedigree lid

BikeRadar score4/5

This Catlike aero helmet isn’t new, but with such a strong pedigree, including a time trial win at the Giro D’Italia, we couldn’t resist testing it. While many of the latest aero lids are full of groundbreaking features, this one is more basic – but no less effective.

It has a particularly narrow side-to-side profile and thin ear-hugging sides, which all help reduce drag, as well as a long tail that’s designed to reduce air turbulence. It also comes with a clear visor that smooths the airflow around your face. You can clip it on and off, but it’s not easy to do in a hurry.

Neither is putting the helmet on, especially when you’ve got the visor attached. Vents on the front allow a small amount of air to pass over your head, while a ratchet-style tightness adjuster gave a snug and comfortable fit on our testers’ heads.
