Athletes in the various bobsled events go to enormous lengths to achieve greater speed.

Today’s invention is a new form of helmet attachment.

The pilot would have a (yellow) biconcave spacer attached to his helmet.

Similar fitments would be applied to the pushers in eg a four-man bob.

The brakeman would have a tapering helmet attachment as shown (blue).

This would allow a crew to press their heads together during a run and thus greatly smooth their combined aerodynamic profile.
