Just picked up a aero helmet. Hoping the aero model will provide less wind resistance in some of the stronger headwinds when riding. Never tried an aero helmet as I have always worn a traditional vented helmet. Not much difference in looks, just less venting. Anyway, we shall soon see.

Good looking cap!!
Thank you kindly. Hard to see real empirical evidence here but a ride I have as a common lunchtime route I rode it .3 mph faster. Not scientific because who really knows on one ride alone. After several rides I will average them to old and see if there is a significant enough change to be considered measurable.

Regardless if it really helps, a new lid can sometimes be nice.

At least you are not a broken spoke ....... in fact, with that hat, you are metaphorically a bladed spoke .... I tried to buy some bladed spokes a few weeks back and all the wheelbuilding shops were keeping them for in-house builds .... which means you are rare and valuable.
