I'm hoping it can be my single helmet for use in both training and racing. I'd feel kind of silly biking around Central Park in an Aerohead with the visor on. But I feel like the Vanquish looks more "normal" and tests almost as good as the Aerohead anyway... and I love the integrated visor, even if it's smaller than the Aerohead's.
Will you be wearing it:
A. Always with the shield, just not the same without
B. Shields are great, but only when you need to go fast
C. The shield will be sitting in the closet

I don't know about the aero especially since I was on my 'slow' disc road bike, but it was indeed quiet. It's a keeper for sure.
I picked one of these up at a shop recently. I'm a huge fan and wearer of Giro road helmets - my go-to helmet for many years has been the Giro Atmos.
"Lite" was not the first word that came to my mind when picking up the Vanquish, but then again, I'm unfamiliar with the other "road aero" helmets. Maybe it is. For the type of riding that I do, having an aero road helmet is not a top-of-mind priority.

Has anyone changed the visor? I'm currently using the original Vivid shield, but I was wondering if other visors could make a better lens for different light conditions, as it's the case in Oakley. There are four different lenses, Clear could be interesting for winter training but what about Emerald or Onyx? Emerald seems similar to Oakley's trail lenses and Onyx looks for bright conditions like Oakley's Iridium or Prizm Road
