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.

Helmet fits excellent. Shipping was quick and efficient. As described RED is really bright ORANGE. I had read that from other reviews so I wasn't too surprised. As is it doesn't match my kit or bike but willing to compromise as it is an excellent fit and price. Later bought the optical shield. Thought I clicked on the orange mirrored shield as it would match. Some how ended up with the 'smoke' lense. Whether user error or the fields reverted to 'smoke' as the default when I was moving through the order screens to check out. Have not use the optical shield yet so can't comment on the function of it. My initial impression is that it is flimsy. The quality definitely is not on par with the helmet. Visual clarity is fair at best. Honestly it is something I'd expect to come with a department store kids helmet for 'cool'factor. I'll likely use my Xxi sunglasses and preserve the optical lense for race day.. if it performs well on test rides.
Thank you Rudy Project, I have always been loyal to Rudy Project because their helmets exceed safety standards while offering stylish helmets that outperform any brand available because Rudy Project is always searching for new ways to improve safety, aerodynamics, and keep their products affordable to cyclists of all riding abilities. My new BOOST Bahrain and my matching Gold Tralxy Sunglasses out perform any other aero helmet I have ever experienced. Thank you again for superior performance and unsurpassed safety while maintaining comfort! I absolutely LOVE my BOOST helmet!!! I simply love it!!!
