Before a helmet like uvex race 8 can play an important role in top races, it must undergo hundreds of hours of development and testing. “We analyzed the typical low, aggressive triathlon riding position,” says product manager Florian Zeibig. “And added data from complex 3D body scans, before developing the first prototypes.”
A wide outer design improves airflow detachment, and depressions on the sides optimize aerodynamic performance. uvex race 8’s centrally placed ventilation lowers standing pressure over the forehead. There’s optimized shaping over the chin and shoulders. The magnetic visor closes seamlessly onto the helmet and can be operated with one hand.
