Description of Rudy Project Wingspan Time Trial Helmet - Yellow Fluo (Shiny)

The Wingspan helmet is the result of many years of research, testing and cooperation between the world's best aerodynamics engineers and top athletes. The streamlined and compact shape of the revolutionary short tail design, highly engineered ventilation system and unique multi-function design make the Wingspan extremely versatile, fast and cool.

John Cobb, one of the "gurus" in the area of cycling aerodynamics worldwide has been actively involved throughout all the development of this helmet starting from the first ideas and sketches up to the final wind tunnel test. Thanks to the cooperation between Rudy Project and John Cobb, the Wingspan can be considered as one of the lightest, most ventilated and aerodynamically efficient time trial helmet in the world.

The Wingspan offers a wide array of configurations through the use of the components within its aerodynamic kit (included: 2 front covers and 1 tail cover). From the wind tunnel results and data elaboration, Rudy Project suggest basically 3 solutions.

The closed configuration offers the best aerodynamic efficiency but the least ventilation. It is recommended for short/medium competitions where timing is king. The half closed 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/or hot weather conditions. The maximum ventilation is definitely needed for keeping the cyclist cool. Due to the longer racing time, a lower temperature outweights having the "max" aerodynamic advantage since it could affect a racers ability to compete over the long haul.

Retention System
Accidental knocks when cycling can cause sudden movements of your helmet in every direction. Therefore it is essential that your helmet is totally secure to prevent it from detaching from your head and resulting in dangerous knocks. Especially suitable for narrow and long heads Zuma adopts the R.S.R. 7 Disc retention system equipped with a rotating disk providing micro metric adjustment with one hand even while on the move, and two height adjustable positions.

Adjustable Head Ring
Rudy Project has created helmet systems that are adjustable on the nape of the neck. These mechanisms allow you to adapt the height of the retention system to your individual morphology and fit the helmet to your head securely.

Fastex System
The Fastex system consists of a simple and quick snap-lock buckle for securing the throat strap which is ergonomically shaped and ensures perfect regulation and maximum stability.

Excellent
This helmet saved my life. I collided with a vehicle while I was travelling at 25 mph on my time trial bike. My head took the full brunt of the impact on the road. Although I suffered other injuries they will heal. This is a reminder again to all individuals to wear a helmet at ALL TIMES. It will save your life. It saved mine.
