Does anybody know where I can find a visor for the Giro Advantage 2 Aero helmet?
Do they make visors for aero helmets? Sounds like it would be counter-productive....
aero visors go down
I definitely mean the visors that "go down".
Yeah I knew what you meant. I have a visor for an LAS that I've never used. I wasn't sure if it would fit or not, but if it does, you can have it. It's smoke-colored.
haa... I don't know why I was thinking of a little brim, like a hat visor. That would be really funny. If I wasn't so lazy right now, I would Photoshop something up! :D
Those things look pretty hard-core. If only I could go as fast as that visor looks!
It does make sense since some bike helmets do come with those other visors.
vjohnson -- why do you want one? I'm just curious. I don't know the idea or benefits to them.
easy....more aero. smoother front than your eyeballs. I don't need one because my big Jewish nose cuts through the wind well enough.
It does seem like a better system than aero helmet + sunglasses. You essentially turn the front of your head into a smooth sphere, and it tapers back at the end (like all aero helmets) to make a teardrop, the most aerodynamic shape.
Huh... interesting... I thought I read somewhere that the facial structure is fairly aero (but I can't remember where or if it was about the visor issue).
I dunno if I'd like how they feel.
If you're thinking about how they feel, you're probably not going hard enough. They're nothing you'd have to adjust to or anything. It's like wearing sunglasses.
Umm I think in an IM I don't really need to look at going harder on teh bike yet... the pace I was going was just fine ;) And I didn't really notice the helmet at all, but am not sure how clostrophobic a visor would make me feel. I also like being able to just remove my helmet and get running (glasses already one).
Is it harder to put on with the visor?
This thread may contain extremely geeky tri-equipment related dorkness.

no. not really.
I use a visor on my LG Rocket. It might be more aero but mostly I don't have to avoid the rim on my sunglasses to see forward. That means I don't have to lift my head as high to see up the road and I get less neck fatigue.
Good info... thanks all!
I of course picture something along the line of the face masks in karate, and when you left those on and squeezed into the helmet the lazy way you had to distort your skull ;)
If you are going to take the step to getting an aero helmet, you HAVE to take the last little step and get the visor. They go hand in hand.
Sorry to drag up an old thread, but I was browsing like the bike nerd I am and came across the damn visor.
$30. [URL=http://www.trisports.com/louisgarprol.html]Here[/URL] it is.
That's for the LG will that fit the Giro? I bought the Giro but I have Oakley Half Jackets and they dont fit very well under the helmet.
