I had been wearing a Giro helmet for a number of years (probably too long 5+ yrs) so I definitely needed a new one. Realcyclist put the Louis Garneau Diamond on sale and I decided to get it. I have not been disappointed: It fits my head perfectly with the Spiderlock retention system (ie. fits true to size according to head measurements), it is comfortable on long rides of 4+ hours and easily provides as much ventilation as my previous Giro helmet. It also appears to be constructed well to protect your head. Bottom line: it does its job well.

If you don't have the $ for wind tunnel testing and expensive aero wheels, then your best option for improving aerodynamics is to buy a helmet like this one. (I am assuming most people already have a good bike fit.) All the data out there shows that the cheapest way to cut through the wind is to buy an aero helmet. You have many options to choose from these days, but for comfort and extra speed in hot summer triathlons, the Giro Advantage 2 is tough to beat.

From morning long runs to sunny four hour road rides, these sunglasses provide the right lenses no matter what the conditions you may face. I also like them because the frames are light weight and lenses not too large. I have done everything from trail runs to triathlons with them and they haven't fallen off my face because of too much sweat or movement. I am happy with my purchase!
