Louis Garneau Sprint aero helmet debuts

Compact aero helmet first seen on stage 2 of the Tour de France

Team Europcar riders debuted the newest addition to the Louis Garneau helmet range on stage two of the 2015 Tour de France Sunday. The new Garneau Sprint helmet features a compact design for decreased drag, with venting at the sides and back. The helmet slots in between the Louis Garneau Course aero helmet and the P-09 in terms of price and claimed aerodynamic benefit. 

The Garneau Sprint features a new adjustment system that allows users to modify the fit one-handed, Garneau says, plus a new strap system. 

There are five external vents at the sides and rear of the helmet, and internal airflow comes via deep channels inside the helmet.

Garneau claims the helmet weighs 9.7oz / 275g. 

The Garneau Sprint helmet will come in white, neon yellow or black for the surprisingly inexpensive price of US$125 / £TBC / AU$TBC. Europcar riders are of course riding in a custom Team Europcar version.
