The Draw: Silent at Speed
The Mistral will likely be the quietest aero hel- met you have ever worn. Installing the included magnetic shield/visor is simple: In race mode, it quickly a xes to the front, or store it atop the helmet for more ventilation and simply flip down for more aero. The leather closure strap is an unexpected touch and feels way comfier against the chin than traditional nylon fabric. The micro-adjustor seems to o er an endless range of fit and rides comfortably light at all speeds. While perhaps lacking enough versatility and venting for everyday riding, the Mistral’s stealthy sensation is perfect for that shaved-down race-day feeling.
