Click HERE For Latest Price


Aerodynamic helmets were a rarity even among performance road cyclists just a few years ago, but things have changed and now they are increasingly becoming popular. Most brands now offer helmets that have some sort of aerodynamic labeling on them. However, not all aero helmets are created equal and some are here to push the limits even further. GameChanger by the German brand ABUS is one of them and aims to redefine aerodynamics.

Developed jointly by designers, engineers and athletes and in cooperation with Movistar team, ABUS GameChanger challenges the norms and offers unique flow patterns that help performance road cyclists combat the headwind, their natural enemy. The aero helmet is a big step up from average helmets and the mainstream and provides the ultimate road cycling experience. It can make a huge difference when cyclists are fighting for every second, thanks to its aerodynamic design that’s meant to change the game.

Jointly developed with the 28-member Movistar team who remained UCI World Tour’s most successful team from 2013 to 2016, the GameChanger helps cyclists achieve top performances and provide them with the needed feeling of safety and comfort. The helmet is a perfect solution for performance-oriented cyclists who want the ultimate in aerodynamics and don’t want to be a part of the mainstream. Some of the core features of the distinctive-looking helmet that help it redefine aerodynamics include its multi-position design for optimized airflows, Forced Air-cooling tech for a more comfortable head-temperature and Multi-Shell In Mold construction for better protection.
