Crafted in Italy's famous Pininfarina wind tunnel with the aid of aerodynamics guru John Cobb, the Boost 01 is Rudy Project's first-ever road aero helmet. Incorporating many advances in fluid dynamics which has made Rudy Project a staple in the Aero / TT helmet world, the Boost 01 is a technological marvel. Featuring 10 vents to assure superior ventilation and a forward placed aerodynamic pressure zone to reduce neck torque, riders can go further, harder and in more intense heat while maintaining superior drag reduction. Lightweight and compact, unmistakably Rudy Project.

I have an LG road helmet that was my go-to prior to this one. I read lots of reviews of various aero helmets and this fit my triathlon age-grouper/roadie needs versus a triathlon specific wing design. My only concern was the weight that was reported in some reviews. Well, I'm not sure how heavy my roadie helmet is, but in comparison, this is feather light. It was comfortable and didn't have to give it a second thought while riding which means, it's comfy. It was exceptionally on one ride windy (20 plus mph gusts) and not sure if it was in my head or not, but in my mind, I felt like this thing was indeed handling high wind better than my roadie helmet. Again, it felt feather light, even in strong head and crosswinds that were steering my bike away from my line. I'd have to say I believe it is delivering as promised. If there is a gripe, it's that I don't look as cool as I feel in it?! :-) But maybe that's just asking a bit too much! Just buy it already.
I've only had the helmet for a couple weeks and two long rides but I'm really liking it so far. It's comfortable and still has enough ventilation to keep my head cool but it's also winterish in So Cal. One gripe is that it seems like the chin strap comes easily out of adjustment... I've had to snug it up before each time I've used it. Other helmets I've owned were good to go every time I've put them on... but maybe it's me.
I love this helmet! I purchased it as I wanted something that was more aero than my normal training helmet, but more breathable and lower profile than my other Rudy racing helmets - this is PERFECT! Can't wait to test it on race day!
