Giro has released Selector, a new aerohelmet that distinctly resembles the lid worn by Lance Armstrong at last year’s Tour de France.
The tail’s shape can be adjusted to match an individual rider’s back profile. Each rider can select the underside of the helmet’s tail so it matches their position. The Shallow Tail extends 10mm down from the fixed portion of the tail and is intended for riders with a flat-backed position. The Tall Tail extends 45mm downward and closes the gap between the helmet and the back of a rider with a more upright position.
Selector will be offered in two different sizes, with the Roc Loc TT Fit System to refine helmet fit on the rider’s head.
A clear or smoke-colored eye shield can be mounted on the helmet and it will be sold in four different color schemes for $275.
Team Radioshack rider Levi Leipheimer is racing in this custom-painted Giro Selector at today’s Amgen Tour of California time trial stage in Solvang, CA.
