This is an easy question to answer

Get a naked black carbon one, with red bits in it and ye carbon gods will propel you along at the speed of light.

Personally I can just about finish the bike leg of a tri without dying so it's not my cup of tea and I'd look like a right spanner.

Up to you.

willieverfinish,
may be if you had one the bike leg might be that much easier,
as we all know,if its expensive it will make you go faster,

It's not so much what you would feel like, but what you'd look like.

2010: White Horse Challenge, Dragon Ride, RoW Sprint, IM UK 70.3, Eastnor Castle Middle Distance, IM UK: All boxes ticked
2011: Now to go faster. Then IronMan Wales came along, so the speedwork can wait until 2012

think back to the first time you ever saw a tri suit,
i'd almost guarantee you said something along those lines

Got all winter to build the legs to warrant it!

So which helmet did you get?

I've been using one of those new Chrono TT ones from Italian company KASK, and they are are as comfy as you can get as they are a normal roadie helmet covered in a nice carbon fairing... boy they look the business, and as they have a hinged visor, i can wear my prescription specs underneath them, AND they don't fog up on climbs - cool eh?
Andy at Kinetic One bikes sold it to me and his mate Simon at Wind tunnel experts Veloscience as tested the begeezers out of it and says it is fast.

So if you want to be super comfy, even on full Ironman distance tri's, then i think this is your baby.

look forward to hearing how you get on with it.
