The Draw: One Helmet for Everything
If you follow the wise advice from veteran triathletes and coaches to do “nothing new on race day,” then the Tava is a great choice for everyday training, while alsow a ording you that same level of familiarity at your big event. It feels light on your head, and the micro adjusters help dial in comfort and fit without any pressure points. It stays put—meaning no embarrassing “cockeyed helmet” race photos. Despite the lack of obvious vents, the Tava feels fast, aero, and cool, while the mesh liner handles wicking duties admirably whenever the road kicks up and the sweat starts to pour.
