Description

When every second counts you need the 2017 Casco Speed Airo RS. The success of the Casco in Track Cycling speaks for itself, Casco have now applied the same Olympic and World Championships winning principles to the Casco Speed Airo RS helmet for endurance events.

Casco's designers have not only been able to provide cyclists with superior protection, they have also reached new levels in technological development for cycling helmets following in-depth studies at Audi's wind tunnel facilities in Germany. 

Just like in a Time Trial, Road Cycling events are won by thousandths of seconds so the importance of aerodynamics can not be underestimated, however in the past Time Trial helmets have followed the cone-shaped design principles and have been unsuitable for Road events. 

As a consequence Casco have developed the Casco Speed Airo a helmet for Road Cycling events such as the Tour de France that provides cyclists with the same aerodynamic benefits as a Time Trial helmet, without sacrificing on ventilation or posture. 

During the testing process Casco used the posture and position of a variety of riders, from Olympic Champions to amateur competitors and mapped these variables against optimum aerodynamic efficiency. The results were analysed and the conclusion heralded the introduction of the Casco Speed Airo that enables cyclists to maintain the most efficient aerodynamic profile regardless of the posture or position they adopt whilst cycling. 

The results of Casco's wind tunnel testing of the Casco Speed Airo produced dramatically improved aerodynamics for Road Cycling in comparison to the traditional Road helmets and when races are won and lost by seconds such improvements are crucial to your cycling. 

Results from Thermal testing at Audi's new climatic wind tunnel allowed Casco to optimise the ventilation systems of the helmet ensuring that riders do not overheat whilst using the Casco Speed Airo despite the improved aerodynamic profile, so even on the hottest days of summer you will not over-heat in the tough mountain climbs of the Alps and Pyrennes. 

-RS

RS is a limited edition styling that Casco have introduced for this special version of the Casco Speed Airo. They are technically the same as the standard Casco Speed Airo, just with two attractive RS colour schemes.

-ADAPTIVE CASCO AERODYNAMICS

Drawn-out helmet shapes are designed to achieve very strong aerodynamic performance in a predetermined position (ideal line). Adaptive CASCO Aerodynamics are designed to produce outstanding aerodynamics in the face of real competition conditions, where body posture and head position must change as the athlete battles. This characteristic promotes effective mobilisation of the body˜s reserves without losing the benefits of aerodynamics. 

-SPEEDMASK VISOR

Removeable patented visor prevents swirling air around earpieces and unimpeded field of vision, even in deepest position. The visor is also completely mirrored/tinted to act as a replacement for sunglasses and protect your vision from ultra-violet sunlight with UV400 protection, camera flash and other sudden changes in light. The Anti-Fog, Anti-Glare technology also aids in preventing any disturbance to vision. Another advantage is that the mirror tint of the visor means your competitors can not see your eyes which helps you to keep that poker face and disguise any clues as to what tactics you are about to unleash.
