Anyone used one of these? 87 quid seems like a decent deal and I'm in the market for a new TT lid.

Appreciate that it depends a bit on individual position but would be interested to hear some practical experience.

I had one and sold it. I fit a medium in every helmet I've tried apart from this. The medium was rubbing my forehead and it kept slipping down so I had to nudge the tail down with my hand or push it up out of my eyes.

The visor is great and very secure, the elasticated side makes it really easy to put on and it looks great, just try it in TT position a few times when you get it to see if it does the same.

I went for the small as the sizing suggested that'd be fine, and I have a peanut head, but I couldn't even get the thing on!

Shame as it looks the business!

I have the superleggera? and the very similar older long pointy tail one.
Visors on both, 55cm bonce and no problem.

Ended up returning the LG and going for a Giro Aerohead also in the sale. The small was just a bit too small, and the medium is pretty roomy but seems comfy.

The aerohead seems to suit my position pretty well having taken a video on the turbo, but will give it a proper test soon hopefully.
