THE FASTEST AND MOST AERODYNAMIC AERO TRI-ROAD HELMET IN THE ROAD


“A new revolutionary breakthrough from Rudy Project” Here is a highly innovative, technological product for triathlon and time-trial enthusiasts, engineered by the aerodynamic guru John Cobb. Wing 57 is wind tunnel and the fastest than any of the best helmets in its categoryWorn by the athletes at the world's toughest triathlon race in Kona Hawai in 2011 and 2012).

VORTEX KILLER SYSTEM™ The Vortex Killer or Air Straightener system adds significantly more ventilation inside the helmet: the Air director creates a high/low pressure area, on each side, so that air coming from the right vent goes to the opposite side of the Director and then flows out. And vice versa for the other side. Acceleration of air means more ventilation to help with sweat evaporation (rider cooling).

CUSTOMIZABLE AIR MANAGEMENT Wing57™ is equipped with a set of removable, modular front vent covers, which will allow you to manage the airflow inside the helmet.The CLOSED configuration offers the best aerodynamic efficiency but the least ventilation. It's recommended for short/medium competition where timing is king. The NET configuration is a very good compromise between ventilation and aerodynamics. It lets air go through the vents and cool the temperature while protecting the head against bugs and insects. It also maintains a very good aerodynamic efficiency. The OPEN configuration is the best solution for long distances and for hot weather conditions. The maximum ventilation is definitively needed for keeping the cyclist cool. Due to the longer racing time, a lower temperature outweighs having the “max” aerodynamic advantage since it could affect a racer's ability to compete over the long haul.

DORSAL RIDGE™ Inspired by sharks, the Wing57™ dorsal ridge helps converting sideways force into a forward force, like it was a long tailed helmet. It gives more surface only when it is necessary, as with a cross wind, while it remains small for less frontal area effect.

CENTER PRESSURE BALANCE™ By reducing the length of the tail and by adding material on top (Dorsal Ridge), we have moved the center of pressure of the helmet forward in order to best match with the center of gravity of the user’s head. This for a better weight balance and to avoid forced axis rotation due to cross winds force. DIRECTIONAL FLOW™ The new shape of this helmet gives all the advantages of a NACA wing shapes (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) but avoiding the natural wind aligning energy cost of that shape itself due to cross winds.

DRAG AND TORQUE FORCES A long-tailed helmet ensures outstanding efficiency in case of a head wind. In most cases, however, the environmental conditions are variable, during long races against the clock for instance, and often the air hits the helmet laterally producing a sail effect - the greater the surface of the helmet concerned, the greater the effect. This imposes countless stresses on the neck muscles in order to maintain the head in the same position. The optimally sized front and side sections, and the innovative short-tailed design of the Wing57™ reduce torsional stresses and therefore fatigue, and allow you to focus totally on athletic performance. What's more, the Dorsal Ridge™ effectively diverts the airflow, conveying it in such a way as to reduce resistance to forward motion, thereby allowing the athlete to go faster, with lower energy consumption. JET STREAM™ The Wing57™ is equipped with an additional and removable magnetic aerodynamic tail that can be added to the Air Director as its extension, improving its performance depending upon rider’s back and shoulders configuration. The flatter the shape of the rider's back, the greater the distance between the helmet tail and the body surface. The aerodynamic tail is designed to bridge the gap between the shell of the helmet and flat-shaped backs and enhance the Vortex Killer™ effect. This results in greater aerodynamic penetration and increased dispersion of warm air from the head.

REMOVABLE AERO-OPTICAL SHIELD™ The fully integrated and removal shield will ensure maximized protection and enhanced aerodynamics while eliminating annoying glare and eye fatigue. Building on Rudy Project RP-Optics™ advanced polycarbonate technology, the Wing57™ visor combines cutting-edge coatings superior optical protection against harmful UV rays minimizing eye strain. SNUG WRAP SYSTEM From their own experience on the racetracks, the Rudy Project engineers have developed a brilliant solution to fit a helmet in the shortest possible time. The helmet straps are anchored directly to the ear-pads, allowing the helmet to be put on with one single, instantaneous movement. The ear-pads are made of antibacterial material with padded ergonomic cushions designed to convey the airflows and noise from the outside.
