Rudy Project has once again taken the win for the “Most Worn Helmet at the Ironman World Championships presented by GoPRO.” It’s the fifth consecutive year that Rudy Project tops the count.

LAVA Magazine released its official product count numbers, announcing 639 Rudy Project helmets. That number was 270 helmets over second place competitor Giro, and 382 over Specialized in third place.

In a release, the company noted, ‘This marks the fifth year in a row that athletes racing the Ironman World Championships presented by GoPro have overwhelmingly placed their trust in Rudy Project helmets, a feat that has never been achieved in the helmet industry before.’

“This is a new defining moment for our company, as it’s simply unprecedented to have won this significant title for five years in a row,” said President and Co-Founder of Rudy Project North America, Paul Craig.

“Not only does 2015 mark the 30th anniversary of Rudy Project’s inception and the 80th birthday of its founder Rudy Barbazza, but it now signifies a monumental accomplishment as more athletes than ever have placed their trust in our technology. Our core ideology is to provide athletes with the absolute best helmets and sunglasses based directly on their feedback, and this fifth title is a testament to that end.”

Rudy Project’s latest Aero helmet, the Wing57, was reportedly a favourite on the field, but many were spotted in Rudy’s Wingspan Aero TT helmet, or one of the brand’s road bike helmets.

Designed and crafted in Italy since 1985, Rudy Project has grown quickly as a premier brand throughout North America. Rudy Project aims to offer “unparalleled customer service backed by a Lifetime Replacement Lens Guarantee and an industry-leading three-year frame warranty.”
