Giro Helmet

June 1, 2018
Pros: *MIPS. *Great fit = comfortable. *Color choices. *Airflow. *Tilting visor.

Cons: *Not cheap but = good value. *Slightly bulky but it's a MTB helmet.

Recommendation: Fantastic. Is a 4.5 star rating IMO. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is I'm sure there's another model out there with possibly less weight and/or (5mm-ish) smaller profile for the same $100? But that's nick picking.

Model/Year: 2016

Pros: Lightweight, comfortable, cool,

Cons: Cheesy screws holding on the visor come out

Recommendation: I was disappointed. This was an expensive helmet to have something as simple as the visor come apart. Other than that I really liked it.

Model/Year: 2016

Pros: Comfortable
Cool (even with less vents than my old Giro Xar helmet)
MIPS - I think it works, at least it did the one time I flipped over the bars and needed it.

Cons: - pads seem to be wearing quicker than my Xar did
- I have a sony action cam. The gopro style mount will not work with my actioncam. This is why I gave it 4 stars.

Recommendation: I love this helmet, The MIPS actually helps make this helmet get better airflow on my head, and I like the extra protection as compared to the Xar helmet I had previously

Model/Year: 2016 Giro Montaro MIPS Rating

Pros: Super Comfortable
Adjusts to head size and locks at that size
The bright orange is brilliant on the trails. When I have friends follow me that always comment on how it was easy to see the helmet in the woods.
This helmet looks really nice and has great attention to detail. When put the helmet on for the first time you can tell it is a quality build.

Cons: The only reason that this helmet did not get 5 stars is that the screws that hold the visor in place are cheap feeling plastic that come undone very easily. I have lost one so my visor is only connected on one side. I have tried contacting GIRO but have not heard back yet....

Recommendation: Love this helmet definitely would buy again, the screws are the only downside and hopefully they will be an easy fix!
