Limar says its Air Revolution concept was inspired by the shapes formed in nature to produce helmets with superior aerodynamics. The Air Speed was the first helmet to be released following this research and is a dedicated aero road helmet developed in collaboration with the Astana Pro Team, and tested in the Magny-Cours wind tunnel in France. We have been riding the Air Speed over the last few months to see how it shapes up against the best road bike helmets and best aero helmets.
