A new Scott helmet, touted as the fastest in road cycling, will make its pro peloton debut at the 2016 Tour de France on the heads of Orica-GreenEDGE riders.
The Scott Cadence Plus was developed by researchers at the University of Adelaide in South Australia and is streamlined to ensure less drag and increase ventilation. Project Leader Richard Kelso said that from an aerodynamics perspective, the Scott Cadence Plus performed better than any of the other leading helmets on the market.
“It’s faster because of its shape. The materials are extremely smooth and are moulded to produce surface details that help to control the airflow and that is one of the secrets that help make it a very low drag helmet,” he said. “It’s a premium helmet, high-level safety, excellent performance – It definitely adds an extra element of comfort”.
