The Draw: Lust-Worthy With or Without the Shield

There was a time when triathletes would train and race on di erent wheelsets, but now it is quite common to use one set of carbon clinchers for both. That day has arrived for helmets, courtesy of the Vanquish’s great looks and optimal blend of aerodynamics and venting features, which ensure you won’t be leaving this one in its custom case for all but a few races per year. The included Zeiss shield is gorgeous to hold and gaze through and a xes to the helmet quickly and intuitively—even in that dreaded disoriented T1 state. Unlike some aero helmets, this one is equally comfortable without the shield, although if maximum speed is the goal, then the shield will enhance airflow, shaving precious seconds.
