Visma-Lease a Bike said they were "surprised" at the UCI’s decision to review the team’s new aero helmet, which was worn by the Dutch WorldTour giants in time trials at Tirreno-Adriatico on Monday, as well in stage three's team time trial at Paris-Nice

The helmet, which is manufactured by Giro, was named specifically in a statement which was released by cycling’s world governing body as it emerged that other helmets would also be included in the new review. The two other helmets named as part of the review were EF Education-EasyPost's 'duck-bill' POC Tempor TT, and Bahrain-Victorious' Rudy Project Windgream HL 85, which also made its debut on Monday at Tirreno.
