It would appear that Scott’s race teams are outing new products both on and off-road. Not long after we spotted what looks to be a new mountain bike for Nino Schurter, we’ve been tipped off to what looks like a new aero helmet for the road. Shown on the head of Orica GreenEdge’s Esteban Chaves at the Giro d’Italia, the helmet looks like a big improvement over previous Scott aero lids at least in terms of ventilation…

Possibly following in the steps of the Kask Protone or Specialized Evade, the helmet in question features massive vents in the front, but with a more solid rear half of the helmet. Judging by the massive Scott logos and the fact that the rest of Orica GreenEdge runs Scott helmets, we’re assuming this will be the replacement for the Vanish Aero which was introduced in 2013.

Thanks to Ryan for the tip!

First worn by Caleb Ewan in the greyish Scott camo-pattern, though.

Nino Schurter has been wearing the non-aero version of this lately.

Nino is using it bc the Rio course is much faster than alot of the other wc courses they race on. i forget where i saw it but the avg speed of rio was almost twice as fast as the avg of the wcs theyve done so far this year.
