Giro's Xar Helmet represents the best blend of value, protection, and ventilation for a mountain bike helmet. It's a bit more subs...tantial than, say, the road-specific Atmos II, but that's because its job is different. It's made to provide more coverage to the sides and back of your head while also resisting the every, branch-bumping nature of trail riding. A lightweight, barely-there road helmet is designed to protect against a single, serious impact -- like an airbag. The Xar is more like the constant support of a seatbelt. The Xar begins life as a roll cage made from DuPont Nylon, which provides a structural skeleton for the impact-absorbing EPS foam body. This keeps the helmet from shattering under impact. The In-Mold construction process fuses the EPS layer to the outer, polycarbonate one to reinforce the helmet -- especially the spots around the vents and ribs. It makes them lighter, more durable, and better ventilated than helmets with shells that are glued to the liner. The Xar's 17 Wind Tunnel vents and internal channeling shuttle air across your head while pulling heat up, up, and away. The P. O. V. visor increases comfort in a different way, by deflecting the sun, rain, and the odd twig or errant pebble kicked up by your riding buddies. The visor's internal clutch system allows for 15 degrees of vertical adjustment achieved by a very precise and technical quick whack of the hand. Its removal is just as easy and tool-free. The Roc Loc 5 fit system uses a ratcheting dial to adjust the helmet's fit. Read More

But because we can't all afford the pros' stuff, Giro brings wonderful pieces like the Giro Foray Helmet to market, so us mere mortals can enjoy the tech and style of the pros, just without the stress of trying to afford them.

If you're going to ride in town, doing your daily commute, why not abandon the roadie influenced helmet and get one that is more s...ubdued and less threatening to the natives in your area. The Giro Section helmet could be an integral part of your high-performance civilian styled bike wear. Though the Section looks like a muted version of a standard skate helmet, it is a bit different. It has an expanded polystyrene liner like their other road and mountain helmets and uses an in-molded polycarbonate shell to add toughness and abrasion resistance without adding significant weight. The limited number of vents, it has eight, lends strength so it is a great helmet even if your urban riding is geared more towards seeking out the best wallrides and stair gaps on your way to the dirt jumps just outside of town. For all-mountain riders, the Section works great for all-day adventures, because it's lighter than a standard ABS-shelled helmet of this style. It's designed to be used with Giro's line of goggles so you'll know that they'll always fit great in dusty conditions. The Giro Section helmet comes in small, medium, and large and is available in three colors -- Matte Black, Matte Gold Transparent, and White/Gold.

On the outside, the new Giro Quarter Helmet may look relatively similar to other low-profile, skate-style helmets out there, but i...t's actually a cutting-edge lid that makes a fine home for your dome. The Quarter is Giro's entry-level helmet into the gravity-chasing, dirt-jumping, pavement-pounding arena of riding, aimed at riders who aren't riding at high cardio thresholds or for lengthy stretches of time. Rather, it's meant for big impacts. This tradeoff means it's not as heavily ventilated or as light as some cycling helmets, but the tradeoff is superb protection that's as thorough as you can get without putting on a full-face. Again, it's not as light as a road helmet, for example, but the Quarter is actually the lightest helmet Giro's ever made with an ABS (high impact) shell. The exterior is comprised of a polyurethane bumper that encases the EPS foam liner, altogether forming a triple shield of protection. Giro's Super Fit shape and Fit Kit replaceable pad system ensure that you can dial in the perfect feel f your Quarter. Read More

What do boxing and cycling have in common? Well, not much, actually. But that still didn't stop the engineers at MIPs and Giro fro...m using head impacts in the ring as part of the comprehensive corpus of research that informs the ingenious, brain-saving design of the Savant MIPS Helmet. The Savant is the product of Giro's collaboration with MIPS, a project that took two years and thousands of tests to create a helmet based on your biology. The collaboration's goal was to mimic your skull's natural noodle-defense mechanism, cerebrospinal fluid, which allows for lateral movement of your head's different protective layers to absorb and diffuse impacts that would otherwise go straight to your brain. The Savant translates this model to exosomatic applications by allowing the outer shell to slide across the helmet's body when tangential force is applied. Instead of just absorbing energy, the helmet is able to redirect it, making the ultimate impact on your head that much less dangerous. While the tectonic outer shell is the result of an international collaboration, the rest of the helmet is pure Giro. The In-mold construction process fuses a middle layer of polycarbonate to the impact-absorber EPS foam body to bump up durability without a corresponding rise in weight. A healthy dose of vents and internal air channeling keep your head cool, so you're not sacrificing comfort for safety, and Giro's Roc Loc 5 system uses a ratcheting dial and adjustable fore/aft tilt for unrivaled customizability of fit.

Ready for casual or aggressive trail riding, the Giro Xara Women's Helmet balances ventilation, weight, and durability to keep you... cool and comfortable. The Xara gets the same expert engineering found in Giro's top-line helmets -- that means it has the same In-Mold process that make Giro helmets some of the strongest and lightest on the market. The In-Mold construction process fuses the outer shell to a EPS foam liner. This process enhances the effectiveness of both parts. In fact, the fusion process actually reinforces those formerly vulnerable spots around the vents and ribs. It makes them lighter, more durable, and better ventilated than helmets with shells that are glued to the liner. This process safely creates 17 Wind Tunnel vents with internal channeling. The Xara also gets the benefit of a P. O. V. visor to deflect the sun, rain, and twigs. The visor has a patented internal clutch system that allows for 15 degrees of vertical adjustment without the need for any tools; just give it a quick whack with your hand. And, if you'd rather not have it on at all, you can easily remove it without tools. Giro's development of the Roc Loc 5 Fit System makes it possible to micro-adjust your helmet on the fly, with just one hand. Though other helmet manufacturers have similar adjustability options, none of them even come close to the weight savings that the Roc Loc system offers: it is almost 40% lighter than comparable systems. But, that's only on benefit of Roc Loc, it's also adjustable vertically as well as horizontally for an excellent fit. The Giro Xara Women's Helmet comes in Small, Medium and Large. It is available in Matte Black, Matte Titanium, and Pearl White. Read More

So much scienc...e is focusing on aerodynamics these days, it's no wonder that the humble helmet -- responsible for surprisingly large amounts of drag on your bike -- has been thoroughly revised over the last few seasons to become more slippery. The results speak for themselves -- witness their popularity in the pro peloton, and the success of Giro's top-of-the-line Synthe aero helmet. Of course, we can't all afford the seriously fancy stuff, so Giro made fancy stuff that's more affordable for the Average Jane, and here we have the Giro Saga Helmet. We can tell you off the bat that the Saga isn't quite as light, as breathable, or as slippery in the wind as the Synthe, but it's darn close.

For over a decade, the Giro Advantage 2 has proven to be the pinnacle of aerodynamic performance, with a rich history of wins at t...he pro level. Giro relies on wind tunnel data to improve even the smallest of details to shave seconds off your times. Though the smooth, teardrop design of the helmet is what gives you the biggest advantage, the superb fit and ventilation are what continue to make it a top choice year after year. The latest iteration of Advantage 2 helmet uses the same Super Fit Engineering that Giro has created using 'human scale factor' data they have collected over the past 20 years. In short, the three sizes of the Advantage 2. combined with the Roc Loc 5 retention system, make it look and feel like it was custom made for your head. Custom fit might sound like a pretty big campaign promise, but Giro's development of their Roc Loc 5 Fit System has made it possible to make those micro adjustments. With the Roc Loc system, you can tune the fit tension as well as the fore and aft tilt of the helmet with one hand. Though other helmet manufacturers have similar adjustability systems, none of them can compete with the Roc Loc system in terms of weight: it's almost 40% lighter than comparable systems. In a helmet style not typically known for being light, this is a significant reduction. Remember those days in the early 2000s when the UCI made it so that aero helmets had to have the same EPS safety foam as the regular road helmets? For those of you who never missed a Lance Chronicle, you'll remember the Giro designers going through all sorts of hell to get an aero helmet ready that would be acceptable to both the UCI and Lance. The Advantage 2 is the love child of that relationship. Through the use of In-Mold construction, the durable but light outer shell is permanently fused to the impact absorbing EPS foam liner. This process enhances the effectiveness of both parts. In fact, the fusion process actually reinforces those formerly vulnerable spots around... Read More

Aerodynamic road helmets became something of a trend over the last couple of years, with Giro's Air Attack Shield Helmet leading t...he way. It doesn't lead from the wind tunnel, though, which is where so many of these helmets get developed and tested. It leads from the velodrome, where the pros from BMC Racing recorded times that were 56 seconds faster over 40 kilometers. It leads from Kona atop Cave, the world champion from Great Britain. Now, it's leading into 2015 with the same design that makes it a favorite for pros across so many disciplines. The helmet features the same front area as Giro's Selector time trial helmet, with the back -- or rather, the lack thereof -- really setting the Air Attack apart. Wind tunnel testing proved that passing air still thinks it's moving around a long tail, when, in fact, the excess material no longer exists. In addition to now having roughly the same minimal drag (only 11% more) than the Selector, the Air Attack provides a drastic increase in weight savings, 264g versus the Selector's 430g. The low-vent design initially inspired fears of 100 degree Fahrenheit days with a stifling bowl on our heads. Giro researched solutions to this concern with something it calls the Therminator, a head-shaped object equipped with sensors. The Therminator went into the wind tunnel and data came out, showing Giro where vents work, where they don't, and providing a map for ideal ventilation with as few vents as possible. Giro also found that as air hits the rider, there is a very high pressure zone right at the forehead. In response, the Air Attack's new fit system, known as Roc Loc Air, suspends the rider's head off of the EPS, allowing air entered in that front three millimeter portion of the helmet to flow over the top of the head and out the large, strategically placed back channels. Amazingly, the Air Attack boasts 97% of the cooling efficiency found in the barely-there minimalist Aeon helmet with an 11% boost in aerodynamics. The poly... Read More

After years of watching a wide range of athletes buy its beloved Atmos road helmet for off-road racing, Giro decided to go ahead a...nd design a mountain-ready version of the new Atmos II, and so created the Giro Fathom Helmet. A structural clone of the Atmos II, boasting the new Thermoformed SL Roll Cage, the Fathom gets its own styling and a removable visor, making it just that much more ready to hit the trail. The SL Roll Cage is the skeleton that gives form to the helmet's EPS liner. It keeps the helmet together under impact, acting like a second shell to maintain the helmet's structural integrity and disperse impact. The added strength also means that Giro can add negative space to the Atmos II without sacrificing safety, so it's more ventilated and lighter than its predecessor. The Atmos II still takes advantage of Giro's In-Mold Composite reinforcement, which permanently fuses the outer shell and SL Roll Cage to the EPS foam liner to enhance the effectiveness of all three. In an age of mass production, Giro's Roc Loc 5 Fit System makes the Atmos II fit like a custom one-off. You can custom tune the fit tension as well as the fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds with one hand. Though other helmet manufacturers have similar adjustability options, none of them even come close to the weight savings that the Roc Loc system offers; it's almost 40% lighter than comparable systems. Keeping your head cool during even the hottest, most critical road races is something that Giro has focused a great deal of attention on. Giro helmets are developed with a proprietary Wind Tunnel Ventilation System that combines 26 vents in the shell with exhaust channels within the belly of the helmet leading to the rear. Fresh, cool air from the front is strategically channeled around the head to help evaporate the sweat before exiting through the rear exhaust openings. It's a natural cooling system that you'll appreciate every ride. Read More

If there were a cycling equivalent of the all-purpose black T-Shirt, the Giro Sutton Helmet may be it. Its design is simple and st...raightforward: this is a bike helmet, and it does bike helmet things. No frills. No Euro-pro gimmicks. Just 100% unadulterated helmet. The Sutton's subtlety means it goes with anything form Lycra to linen, and it can fly under the radar if you wear it in to the store. If you'd rather leave it outside, its reinforced vent provides the means to lock it to your bike. In addition to the heathered webbing and a soft rain/sun visor, the Sutton's got your standard 20-plus years of Giro safety and fit expertise poured into it. Its safety features extend beyond impact protection, though. The Sutton includes reflective elements and a clip on the back for mounting a light -- either one of which may help you avoid the need to use the helmet for its intended, noodle-saving purpose by making sure you don't avoid detection in low-light situations.
