Boost01 combines safety and aerodynamics into a unique and powerful design. Boost 01 features extreme ventilation and reduces aero drag by 12% compared to traditional road helmets. With 10 vents, the Boost 01 features some best helmet ventilation on the market. New internal air channels help to guide and accelerate the air flow out of the rear of the helmet This helmet also comes standard with a removable optical shield that flips up
Rudy Project, has also been taking inspiration from aquatic creatures. This time it’s sharks by way of the dorsal ridge. Rudy says it’s design concept takes advantage of sideways forces that move them into forward propulsion, and in the event of crosswinds it delivers all the advantages of a long-tailed helmet without the relative negative repercussions on the front.
Other aero design aspects of the Rudy Project Boost 01 helmet include the side vents that aid in the straightening of the air flow at the rear of the helmet. Called the Vortex Killer System, it aims to redirect airflow – the main cause of friction and instability – beyond the rear of the helmet.
The air is pushed out beyond the neck and shoulders at a different rate and volume compared to the air arriving in the opposite direction.
