Looks kind of cool, like a modern version hairnet.

Now that the pros are forced to wear 'em, we'll prolly get to see some emerging new designs over the next coupla years that we might not have otherwise. All this will of course trickle down to us eventually and we might just see the market take the helmet a step further than current designs have done.

Think outside the helmet.

Cheers!

My midline Giro is already lighter and cooler than the leather hairnet I wore 30 years ago; now companies will have to come up with something that a pro can stand to climb the Ventoux in on a 95 degree French summer afternoon.
At 75 degrees in the Northwestern US you'll hardly feel it!

Like you said, kinda like a modern version of hairnet similar to the Rudy Project Stratosphere that Lampre riders are sporting.

They're not listed under "Bicycle Helmets" but instead under "Headgear Protection". I would question whether it's CPSC approved here in the states.
So, any chance I can order one somewhere on-line? nmQubeley

Just so that you can try it on and make sure it fits your head. Not all brands fit the same way... If you are gonna wear it, make sure it fits first.

I just looked, their website lists a bunch of dealers per state, but I think many are sunglasses dealers and skishops, but they list an 800 number on the site. You could always call them and ask them who sells cycling gear near you.
