uvex EDAero: Keep cool you're the fastest
The uvex EDAero cycling helmet combines the excellent aerodynamics of a drop-shaped time trial cycling helmet with ideal ventilation characteristics and a shape suitable for everyday use. The heads responsible for the trend-setting racing helmet: The uvex-engineers and cycling professionals. The result is impressive: For example, energy-saving of up to 16 Watts or converted 1 minute 25 seconds on a stretch of 40 kilometres at a speed of 38 km/h is possible already solely by wearing the new EDAero. Impressive numbers that every race cyclist can convert into drive and performance increase immediately.
Computer optimized airflow
The new form of the uvex EDAero is the basis of the fast helmet concept; the heart however is the construction of the air channels: The airflow is led around and through the helmet in one flow. Turbulence is minimized. The vertical ventilation slots at the front of the EDAero direct the air straight into the helmet. This way the air resistance is minimized at the most important place, where the air hits the helmet straight on. An optimized system of eight ventilation channels redirects the air on the inside of the shell. This enables cooling and ventilation of the head, even though the helmet is nearly fully closed. This aerodynamically optimized synergy of ventilation and air resistance only works because the incoming air is led out with low turbulence levels, and forms a straight flow line at back of the head.
Fast shell, protective core
Of course the EDAero guarantees the protective function of the helmet without compromises and ideally protects the head against impact. All helmets have the "Double Inmould Technology" made by uvex. The advantage of Double Inmould: with a weight of 270g the helmet is light-weight and stable at the same time. The thin plastic hard shell encases the dampening interior EPS shell. Microscopically small air enclosures are located on the inside of the EPS plastic that are able to effectively dampen impacting forces. The helmet should always be adapted to ideally fit head shape and size.
BOA system specifically for cycling
In exclusive cooperation, uvex attuned the patented BOA adjustment system specifically to usage in cycling. The flexible individual parts can be ideally adapted to individual head shapes. In connection with the monomatic FAS lock system, the uvex EDAero is comfortable to wear without pressure points and safely stays in the right position in case of falls. As of spring of 2015, the EDAero is available in two shell sizes (53-57 cm/57-59 cm).

Double Inmould Technology - Leicht und stabil
Das Schutzmaterial EPS wird direkt in die Polycarbonat-Schale eingeschäumt. Für eine leichte Helm-Konstruktion bei höchster Schlagfestigkeit. Perfekte Fusion aus EPS-Innenschicht und Polycarbonat-Aussenschicht. Zusätzlich zu den Vorzügen der Inmould-Konstruktion, bietet die Double Inmould Technology einen kompletten Rundumschutz durch eine zweite PC Schale, die den unteren Randbereich vor Beschädigungen schützt und dabei noch gut aussieht.
BOA® – All new. All improved. All BOA.
Now optimized for cycling helmets, the unique BOA system is exclusive to Uvex road helmets. Combining an ingeniously simple system with high performance materials from the aerospace industry improves comfort, performance and safety.
Flexible polyamide bands on three sides of the helmet ensure optimal fit on the head. The BOA wheel can be adjusted with one hand, whereby on click correlates with one mm. For the perfect fit on every head. The selected setting stays via ratchet dial – for fantastic fit.
High-tech partnership with Boa Technology Inc.
Monomatic - Button-press adjustment
Multi-stage and anatomically shaped: uvex’s monomatic comfort closure opens and closes at the touch of a button, with just one hand. The chin strap always sits perfectly.
FAS - Easy and Practical
Fast Adapting System webbing can be easily and continuously tailored to your exact head shape. The helmet stays securely on the head in all situations and the webbing straps are always in the best position.
Vent Pads - High quality
Interior features significantly affect a helmet’s
comfort. The Vent Pads consists of high quality moisture wicking material with embossed ventilation channels. They are comfortable and soft on the skin, dry quickly, are removable and washable.
Note: Please measure your head circumference to get the right helmet size.
- Outer material
PC - Strongly bonded polycarbonate shell for safety. Double inmould for extra protection around the lower edge.
- Inner material
EPS - Protective material contains microscopic air chambers. They effectively absorb the impact forces created in a fall.
