2013 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Aero Helmets

Bell Javelin

$200, Bellhelmets.com
The draw: Ample venting in a traditional design

Generous vents at the front provide a large volume of airflow, delivering outstanding temperature regulation compared to most aero lids. The open tail, while potentially sacrificing a fraction of speed over a closed tail design, aids in this cooling effect. An integrated visor provides wind and debris protection that rivals most sunglasses, all without the hassle of fussing with sunglasses in transition. Also available in black.
