The success of the Casco Warp Carbon in Track Cycling speaks for itself, Casco have now applied the same Olympic and World Championships winning principles to the 2016 Casco Speed Time Trial Helmet for Time Trial and Triathlon 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 motion studies at Audi's wind tunnel facilities in Germany.

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 Time 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 Time produced dramatically improved aerodynamics for Time Trials and Triathlons in comparison to the traditional cone-shaped Time Trial helmets that have previously dominated the sport. Helmets following the traditional cone-shaped design for aerodynamics cause a huge loss of speed and aerodynamics with even centimetre variations in the cyclist's head position. These movements are impossible to restrict but the Casco Speed Time negates the effect of head movement and provides cyclists with the fastest helmet ever produced.

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 this helmet, making the helmet suitable for all types of Time Trials and Triathlons. Users of this helmet also include Wheelchair athletes and speed skaters.

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.

Fold-up 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 you are thinking or your current condition.

Sealable front inlet for short or long distances, with intake below the rear break-away edge spoiler, contactless fit of the helmet through tautet net (orange) head keps a distance of +/- 5mm from the helmet maximum cooling surface in the helmet
