Triathlon helmets aren’t typically something I get super excited about. But the new Rudy Project Wing57 time trial helmet has some really innovative features that really stood out.
It’s a progression from the Wingspan they introduced a while back and was developed with aerodynamics guru John Cobb. At first glance, the biggest difference is the lack of an extended tail section. Instead, it uses a central fin on the exit port that has a magnetic extension to fit different rider back/neck shapes. It’s called the Vortex Killer, and it’s designed to reduce turbulence while helping pull more air through the helmet and balance out the high pressure zone typically created at the front of a helmet.
