The Bahrain-Merida team has been wearing the Rudy Project Racemaster helmet in its distinctive gold livery, since the team’s founding in 2017. The Racemaster has a distinctive profile, with its boy racer-style go faster spoiler protruding from the rear of the helmet.

Now we’ve spotted Vincenzo Nibali wearing a different, new Rudy Project helmet at the Bahrain-Merida training camp in early December in Hvar in Croatia. The new helmet has lost the rear spoiler and has a more rounded profile. There’s also more of a drop at the rear, behind the ears.
