I’m excited to be talking about the new helmet that’s protecting my noggin, because my association with Giant goes back a long way. They’ve kept me at the front of the pack when it comes to state-of-the-art, cutting-edge bikes and now they’re doing the same with my helmet.
The Rivet TT is the result of Giant’s commitment to investing time, energy and expertise into helmet design. And it’s a beauty. It’s their most aerodynamic helmet yet – tuned using a process called Computational Fluid Dynamics and tested extensively in the wind tunnel and in real-life on the heads of the Team-Giant-Alpecin pro riders.
Keeping cool in the mountains
I’m currently in Boulder, Colorado for altitude training and the Rivet TT is what I’m rocking through the Rockies… All puns aside, the new helmet is working out well in training and I think it’s going to be great for Kona. The strategically placed dimples on the helmet improve laminar flow and the ‘drag-neutral’ ports and internal channels do a great job at keeping my head cool. The last thing I want to do is fry my brain going through the Energy Lab at Kona, so staying cool-headed is critical to performing at my peak in the World Championships this year. Like all good gear from Giant, the Rivet TT is designed for both speed and comfort.

He Rivet TT isn’t just for the pros. Giant have got all the specs on their site. You can find out more on Giant’s website.

Thanks again to my sponsor, Giant, for keeping me competitive and making me look good… in slow motion.
Go hard… go Giant!
