Louis Garneau stood out in the triathlon industry at the 2010 Ironman World Championship. The first victory for Garneau took place off the course the day before the race. Louis Garneau topped the list for the Aero Helmet Count pushing out Giro for the first year ever. The count gives the industry a scope of the previous year's buying trends and an idea of who the players will be for the following year.

Louis Garneau helmets also domed the heads of 4 of the Top 15 spots, pro men and pro women, including team TBB athlete, Caroline Steffen. Steffen's placed 2nd Overall for Pro Women and had the 4th fastest bike split of 4:59:23. Steffan chose the Louis Garneau Diamond for her race which was also chosen by Chrissie Wellington in the 2009 Ironman World Championships. The Diamond helmet is known and selected by pro triathletes for the extreme ventilation and heat evacuation.
