Jason started triathlon at age 16 by getting involved in lots of local races. He continued to race through his time at Penn State where he earned a B.S. in Kinesiology. After graduating he moved to Boulder to pursue a career as a professional. He has been racing ever since across many disciplines of the sport from ITU to 70.3.
Jason’s biggest goal right now is to win 70.3 World Championships. He recently made the switch to long course racing and has had a lot of success, winning several races and landing on the podium on many others. He coaches himself with help from his fiancé, Jessica Broderick, on his swimming and Bobby McGee on his running.
I recently had the chance to try out a friend's Wing during an 80km group ride (I know, this isn't a group ride helmet) after failing to pack my helmet. I was impressed by the comfort of the helmet, and asked to borrow it for a week to complete some solo rides. Already owning a Kask Mistral I wasn't necessarily in need of a new TT helmet, but to be honest I've never been a fan of the Mistral shape - so I was drawn in by the good looks of the Wing (subjective good looks of course). 50km relatively flat ride, and without much effort I cut 1m37s off my PB on that route. Was it all helmet, not likely... but that is good enough for me to pull the trigger during the current sale. Can't wait to have one of my own soon!
Great fit and very aero. A must have if racing/ competition.
The helmet is comfortable and well ventilated for a tri-helmet. The magnetic lens is cool and stays in place very well, however, it fogs easily, is prone to scratches, and is difficult to clean. The outside of the lens cleans ok but the inside is very difficult and never seems to get clean. Its like its sticky.
