Rh+ is debuting and all new aero helmet that promises a better balance yet of aero gains and ventilation on the road. The new Z Alpha claims the highest level of ventilation ever in an aerodynamic helmet. The new helmet marks what rh+ calls a third generation design. They claim that most of the industry is making 2nd gen helmets that still compromise on ventilation…
The Z Alpha was designed both in the lab and wind tunnel so a better balance was made, and they claim to have come away with both improved aerodynamics and ventilation, then they took it out on the road for real world testing with Team Fundacion Contador.
The helmet gets a removable cover on the outside, and an optional MIPS liner inside for added safety. The cover speeds up air flow, as well as regulating ventilation through the helmet from front to back. That boosts aerodynamics, especially over 40 km/h. It also doubles to offer some protection from the elements, either cold or rain.
Suggested retail price for the Z Alpha with MIPS is £160.00, and non-MIPS version for £130.00.
