Cutting through the air as fast and efficiently as possible is the name of the game when it comes to time trials and the helmet represents one of the most important attributes in this regard. The best time trial helmets offer a balanced meld of protection and aerodynamics but blueprints have evolved over the past few years with short-tail helmets becoming increasingly popular. 

We've already reviewed the Rudy Project The Wing TT helmet, an option that excels in a variety of rider positions and Met's Codatronca TT helmet follows a very similar approach. Developed and tested in the wind tunnels of Politecnico di Milano and Milano Newton Labhe, the science behind this rhetoric is simple: by docking the tail of a long TT helmet, the head can move freely in multiple positions while remaining aerodynamic from all angles. These short-tail helmets have subsequently become the go-to option for riders of all abilities - professionals included. In fact, two-time Tour de France winner Tadej Pogačar, claimed a resounding victory on stage 5 of this year's edition using a Met Codatronca.
