Limar is aiming to further cheat the wind with the latest version of its Air King EVO helmet, giving the time trial-specific lid a new aerodynamic signature thanks to extensive wind-tunnel testing performed at the Newton laboratory in Milan, resulting in a claimed 5-8 watts over its predecessor.
“The riders worked on every detail to improve their performance, that is why the shape of the new Air King EVO has been molded on the cyclist’s body, becoming an aerodynamic whole that has exceeded all the goals previously achieved,” boasts Limar.
Comprising the same front channeling, rear air port, magnetically attached visor and overall weight as the out-going model, according to Limar, the updated Air King EVO gets its performance edge primarily due to a revised shape.
“The shape and lines of Air King EVO have been designed considering the athlete on the time trial bike during the performance, observing and taking into account all the variables of resistance, speed, position and direction of the wind. The result is a shell shaped around the rider, with a reduced impact area and better aerodynamic penetration, with a consequent reduction in turbulence,” explains Limar.
Available in two sizes, and two colorways, the Air King EVO sells for a hefty $330.00.
