Haven't heard any details about the helmet, except that Lance was wearing it.

Since helmets are pretty much foam w/ plastic outer shell, would real carbon fiber improve helmet design?

Giro has been making "carbon-look" finishes for years. Is this one different?

I noticed right off the bat he wasn't in a Pneumo and was wondering what bucket he was wearing. Thanks!
