Are helmets getting uglier? Is this a man or giant frog?
That's a big ole affirmative (uglier, not giant frog). It seems the quest for aerodynamic efficiency comes with a cost. Aesthetics. As my friend Ben said "It looks like they have a big ole minnow bucket on their head."
Who can forget this one. Even while on the juice LA was saving watts through custom aero helmets.
Now, no tail is all the rage. Is the industry making stuff up to sell us more stuff?
Carlos had a cool head with all those vent holes. I kinda feel like a giant spider is looking at me.
I suppose if someone paid me to ride my bike I would wear a trash can on my head if they wanted me to. Maybe the new styles will grow on me. Okay...oddest looking helmets in cycling past or present. Leave a comment with a link to the photo below and I'll add them to this post later. Thanks!
