I am looking to get a TT helmet and have about $200 to spend. I have been looking at Louis Garneau, Lazer, and Rudy Project. Those seem to be the big three I read about and see. Anyone have experience with any of these?

I had, and liked, the LG Vortice; however, I tend to drop my head while training so ultimately went with the more truncated Kask Bambino.

Dang that thing was expensive, but it is definitely the most comfortable - and fastest - helmet I've worn.

If you tend to drop your head, you may want to look at the Giro Air Attack, but if you're disciplined with your position, I did like the LG; however, I don't know anything about the other two.

helmets are like saddles, bikes and shoes. One's that are great for me may suck for you. Unfortunately the only way to know is to try some different ones out.

You can make some guesses depending on how the line of your back looks when you're in aero.

All the brands you listed make quality stuff, so there is that.

i have the rudy project and like it. has a lot of adjust ability in the venting depending on the weather and race distance. i've tried a few others on, but never ridden with them.

When I swim I struggle to get a full breath and consequently run down faster. I spend part of my training on the side of the pool gasping for air.
