Pros: light weight
aero dynamic
top openings for wind

Recommendation: My husband has this and he loves how it feels on his head, a sense of safety, and on hot days the vents make it a little easier

June 5, 2014
Model/Year: Giro phase

Pros: Extremely cheap with coupon at sports authority. $39

Recommendation: Can't beat it for the price!

June 18, 2012
Model/Year: 2012

Pros: light for the money, easily adjustable, great venting, good padding, and deeper low head/neck protection.

Cons: adjuster is not full head, padding can come loose.

Recommendation: This is a great helmet as fro as bang for buck goes. It is lightweight helmet with a good visor. The adjustor works well, but it only tightens around the back of the head. The vents work amazingly well, and this helmet has better protection for the lower portion of your head/neck.

Pros: Very comfortable fit for longer days in the saddle
Visor easy to remove
Aggressive looks

Cons: Retention systems is a hassle to use when trying to adjust on the fly

Recommendation: Overall the Giro Phase helmet provides superior fit and cooling efficiency for a helmet in the 70 dollar price range. With aggressive looks the phase is definitely a looker on the trail, comparable to the 130 dollar XAR helmet. The only real negative trait of this helmet is that the retention system could definitely use some adjustment. its nearly impossible to adjust with one hand as most of the time you'll just end up loosening it all the way out as opposed to tightening it, which most people are trying to do.
Overall the phase is a great buy, just make sure you save the fine tuning and adjustment for at the car or while taking a break off the trail.

Model/Year: Phase 2010 brownish

Pros: light, not much to break, visor works the way it should The visor is easy to remove for those non visor days.

Cons: padding, removes sometimes. the only way it is held on to you head is by the back clamp strap. instead of a full head clamp. its hard to tighten on your head and get a snug tight.

Recommendation: All in all it was a great helmet for the cost. the colors work great for me, I enjoy the visor and its light. I do wish I played around with it more in the store. I have trouble with the back screw clamp which tightens the helmet to your head. In reality if i would fall with this helmet i think it would do the trick so it was a good purchase.

Pros: Lightweight, and I like that it isn't pointy in the back. Cosmetically just don't like it pointy.

Cons: I feel the straps could be designed better, but once I have it on, I forget about it, so I guess it works

Recommendation: This is my first helmet, and I like it. Although I don't have much to compare too in that case, I would recommend it to others.
