less vents probably makes some difference.
Tape might make that less difference.

Read this whole damn thread and still conclusion as to whether there is a difference between the regular aerohead and the aerohead ultimate...

i am still waiting on this conclusion as well.

Little concerned about the Aerehead visor cutting into the cheek and the mention of visor fogging up.

But remember you are only hearing from the people that are having issues with that, the people that are not having those problems are not posting about them. For example I have not had a problem with fogging or the visor digging into my cheek, so keep in mind it is probably the minority having those issues.

the visor fogging to me sounds like a pretty important one.

true. The price is very nice and I like the visor setup on aerohead better than lg p-09. cerebrel price is just a little too much

The visor fogged on me in a TT but it was basically 100% humidity and the rain had just stopped. Did you know the shield is removable and there are additional set of magnets so that you can take the visor off and mount to the helmet with the visor essentially flipped around?

It doesn't appear so. We have one for sessions and it's certainly not a magic helmet!

If you're taping up the vents you also need to close a bit off the underside as well to mimic the Ultimate version.

interesting, thanks.

Anyone got a picture of the underside of the Ultimate to compare to?

That's a really a nice feature and one of the reasons I'm leaning towards the aerohead. The lg p-09 can be found much cheaper but it doesn't seem the visor setup is nearly as good.

As I told TG, just ride faster when the visor fogs up, it helps a bit :)

I have never had glasses or visors not fog up on really humid days, ie >95% with little wind blowing on you

I'll try the small and return it if it doesn't fit properly.

I've rarely had glasses fog up on me unless I've moved say from a car with a/c out into the humid warm air. I'm not really too worried about it if I buy the aerohead since it appears easy to remove the visor and attach to helmet pretty easily if it were a problem

you are not putting out enough heat then, from your face :)

I ripped mine off as soon as I crossed the line on Saturday and put it up top. while it fogged during the TT, it was never enough that I couldn't see somewhat up the road. but then they were fairly empty roads as I started 30 sec after the last P12 guy, so few to pass/worry about.

I've used my aerohead a few times and the visor has fogged up, but it's primarily in the morning when humidity has been really high. I also used it for another ride during the day and it didn't fog up, but I noticed how much warmer it is than my other helmets.

It's a nice helmet and it def. feels faster. I also notice that if you're not in an aero position, the air "screams" around it.

yeah, mine only fogged up once in 5 uses.

also, the front is so think/deep that it is really easy to get that to hit your arms if you put your head down

I guess I'm just not working hard enough. :)

It's a very cool looking helmet

The giro ultimate aerohead is going to be that much warmer then because it doesn't have the vents on top.

I can't say that the vents do much venting, though. I'm not complaining, though...I can handle a bit of heat.

Interesting that Nick at TriRig says the Aerohead MIPS has better ventilation than the P09. For those who have tried both, what do you think?

I tend to be susceptible to overheating so I prefer to run my P09 without visor. Not really a viable option with the Aerohead. For those who have tried both, how would you rate the ventilation for the Aerohead in comparison to the P09 with and without visor?

I don't ride the P09 w/visor, but with that being said, the Aerohead is much hotter. The P09 is a thing of beauty when it comes to heat.

I just got the helmet and have done a couple of test rides. Fogging for me (80 degrees with 90% humidity in Florida) has been a problem. I put some defog on lens and it helped. My question is how much will I give up if I use it without visor. I'm racing an international tri on Saturday in similar conditions. For reference- I have a pretty good position (for a 52 year old), running latex tubes/disk, speed concept 2nd gen. I will aim for a NP of about 220w or so (FTP 240)- course is flat and fast; I have averaged 23+ before on same course on 208w.

thanks for any assistance.

Steve

Got mine in today and good news is the small will fit. Bad news is visor was cracked upon arrival.
