TechBy superiorly achieving the utmost in aerodynamics, ventilation, comfort, safety, and design, the Course Helmet is for sure, a winner. Computational fluid dynamics software enabled us to simulate the aerodynamic performance of several helmets on the market. Our analysis determined that it was possible to optimize performance by maximizing the helmet's frontal surface. In order to reduce the highest pressure zone on the helmet, the front, frontal openings were designed to optimize airflow and evacuate air internally to the back of the helmet. An aerodynamically designed inner-nerve system molded inside the EPS liner forces air inside the helmet, circulating it around the rider's head, and evacuating it to through the back of the helmet. Internally molded evacuation channels move the airflow, cool the head, and eliminate moisture.

DescriptionThe Course Helmet bridges aerodynamics and ventilation for a practical solution for everyday cyclists. By superiorly achieving the utmost in aerodynamics, ventilation, comfort, safety, and design, the Course Helmet is for sure, a winner.

11 Customer Review(s)The only helmet I don't look like an idiot in! It's light looks good and what it's supposed too... would buy again, he'll I might even buy another one in white!
Quality Price ValueI have been cycling for 43 years. Owned many helmets made from leather to todays materials. This helmet by far is the most comfortable I ever rode with! Its light and stays in place. Lots Garneau hit this one out of the park. Quality Price ValueI wear this helmet every day as a bike messenger, for 8 hours a day. It's the most comfortable and most flattering helmet I have ever owned. I even have a photo of myself wearing it as my Facebook profile photo! It's lightweight and good for racing as well. The only complaint I have is that when I wear a big backpack and turn my head to the side while looking up, the wheel in the back that tightens the headband part of the helmet actually loosens it, so when that happens I just have to reach back and tighten it again. It's a great fit though, and if you don't wear a backpack to get in the way, I don't think that would happen. Quality Price ValueI ride a lot in warm temperatures and the Course helmet has done a great job of keeping me cool. My problem with many helmets is I have a smaller head and most helmets look huge on me. The Course helmet is sleek and the fit is excellent. Quality Price ValueThis is an amazing little helmet. The spider lock allows me to easily snug the helmet to my head so comfortably that I often forget I am wearing it. I wear this helmet day in and out as I ride to and from work, and it easily adjusts to fit over knit hats and cycling caps while dealing with different weather. As I turn my head look over my shoulder I can feel just how well this helmet cuts through the air and especially the wind. I live in Chicago, the windy city, riding into a strong headwind is a daily occurrence, I just wish my body could cut through the wind as well as this helmet. Matte black goes with everything. Quality Price ValueTo me the two most important features of a good road helmet (besides safety) are comfort and lightweight. The Course helmet is awesome in both aspects. There's nothing worse than a helmet that feels like it's adding weight (and drag) to your head. The Course is so light and areo that it's easy to forget you're even wearing it! Super easy to dial in the fit for maximum comfort, amazing ventilation, and I personally think it looks far better than any of the other "aero" road helmets out there. My favorite road helmet I've ever owned and raced in so far. Originally I was only going to use it as my "race day" helmet but I love it so much that I'm wearing for every ride.
I'd love to see the straps molded directly into the shell in future generations but the current version gets the job done well.
Oh and my glasses are super easy to fit into the ventilation holes for fast and secure storage when not wearing.
Quality Price ValueI've had a lot of trouble finding a helmet that fits snug, but not too tight. Has a solid layer of protection, but is still light. Covers my whole head, but isn't bulky. My Garneau Course helmet not only looks awesome when I wear it, but protects my head extremely effectively using super light yet strong material.
This helmet surpasses all of my expectations, and sets the bar high to any other helmet out there. To me, it was the obvious choice to choose a Garneau helmet because their products never fail to help me race my fastest, and look and feel my best.
Quality Price ValueThis helmet looks badass and feels fast. Comfortable and great quality. Enjoying the ventilation for hot days and fits nicely with a headband or cap on cool days. Very light and tightens up comfortably. You won't be disappointed. Quality Price ValueI am what's known as a sweaty man. If I think too hard I start to sweat. Helmets have long been an issue for me because I normally get sweat in my eyes which is never a good thing when riding. Typically I am forced to wear a sweatband/headband to solve the problem.
However, I have finally found my helmet! This thing vents so well that I don't need a headband which is just amazing. It is incredibly light and low profile. Really digging the helmet and I use it for road, xc, and cx.
Quality Price ValueWhen you need to go fast, this is the helmet to choose! The Course helmet is super comfortable especially on really hot days when ventilation is the key to staying cool. I race both road and track and I've found this helmet to be my favorite for both.
Quality Price ValueGreat fitting helmet. Basically, you forget you have it on your head, which is a sign of a winner! This lid is easy to adjust, has comfortable straps, and an effective retention system that does the job. Plus, it doesn't look big on your head and has great styling that isn't too flashy or too boring. Add in the great aero performance reviews Course Helmet has received and I'm super psyched. Lastly, it matches most of my kit so I'm sure to look good, be comfortable, and stay safe. Quality Price Value
