Aerodynamic Helmets: How to choose them?

Aerodynamic Helmets: How to choose them?

First, you have to realize that each person has a different kind of tuck. This is why some people can perfectly fit their tuck into an aerodynamic helmet, and some do not.

In general, there are 3 tuck types:

  • Beginner’s Tuck:

It’s that crooked tuck, in process of evolution, that still does not reach a very effectively aerodynamic position. If you are in this early stage you need a certain refinement before seeking the use of aerodynamic helmets.

  • Low Tuck:

Most used among advanced riders. The shoulders are fully bent down as close as possible to the chin and front knee. The back is also curved down and the head is lifted to look forward. The idea is to make the body simulate a kind of aerodynamic capsule. Our new aerodynamic “Blackbird V2” was made especially for this type of tuck.

  • High Tuck:

It is the tuck that simulates an arrow format. The shoulders are fully contracted up and the back is also contracted straight and parallel to the floor. The athlete contradicted himself to reduce the volume of the shoulders making the whole body thinner to cut the wind. Our AeroSlicer V3 helmet is ideal for this type of tuck.

Did you see how useful is to set your tuck before getting an aerolid?
