Check out this month’s flashiest goods in our tech of the month video. This week we’ve got a bumper crop of products from Giro, Acer, Cervélo and Roval.

Giro Aerodhead Ultimate MIPS TT helmet

First up, “the fasteest time trial helmet in the world”, according to our very own time triallist in chief, Oliver Bridgewood.

Ok, so there’s no actual proof of this statement but the Giro Aerohead Ultimate MIPS TT helmet does have the properties to be wicked quick. And of course, it makes you look like a death star gunner.

Xplova X5 GPS computer

Second, is the Xplova X5 GPS computer, which represents Acer’s first jaunt into the world of cycling computers.

It comes equipped with data screens, navigation as well as a touch screen and much more. Most importantly, though, is the integrated camera in the front.

This will record in 720p quality and is able to capture in bursts of three, six or nine seconds.

Specialized Roval CLX 32 wheelset

Weighing in at 1,350g is the Roval CLX 32 wheelset, a disc specific racing wheel from Specialized.

We’re big fans of them, finding them really stiff and direct. Without a doubt, these would be a great upgrade wheelset for a disc brake bike.

Bike of the month: Cervélo S3 disc

The disc version of the age old Cervélo aero bike, this is a really great looking machine.

While discs aren’t supposed to be as aerodynamic as rim brakes, that hasn’t stopped the Canadian brand slapping ’em on their dedicated aero bike.

In fact, Cervélo reckon you can make back the aero losses of disc through the frame adjustments that speccing hydraulic brakes allows. Interesting stuff.
