To maximize eye comfort, The Wing features an all new removable magnetic visor. Easy to mount and dockable, the visor boasts an ultra peripheral lens with enhanced deep horizon vision. Building on RP Optics advanced lens technology, the polycarbonate visor ensures protection against UVA and UVB rays and minimizes eyestrain allowing athletes to stay focused on their performance only. Thanks to the all-new Easy in- Easy out magnetic removable vent cover you can easily manage the helmet's internal airflow, choosing either the fully open or closed configuration according to your performance needs.
"Rudy Project has released an aero helmet that’s not only faster in more positions, but also arguably the most elegant aero design around. Rather than complicating their new design with tons of added features and gadgets, Rudy has actually made the new Wing even sleeker and more minimal than their previous offering...
"The end result is one of those rare moments when engineering and design hit the sweet spot—looking good on paper while looking good in the box. The new Wing is a vast, simplistic improvement on an already well-loved design."
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.
These two vents are great. One to completely block the airflow and the other to let air in. Live changing them in and out
Hat fits great and is well made. Not just some cheaper truck hat!
I got this helmet in grey... loved it so much I came back for the merlot one. Super comfy for long rides.
