Full face with chinbar. Yes, P.O.V. Plus. The U.S.CPSC Safety Standard for Bicycle Helmets for Persons Age 5 and Older is used. The fit adjustment is for the air.
👤I didn't pay much attention to the reviews and people on online forums who said that the face shield was weak and that it would fall off in a crash. The helmet failed because I thought they were doing extreme jumps. I ordered this. I was wrong. You can remove the face shield from the helmet. This helmet is not safe. The top part of the helmet protects the head, but the face shield is not. There is a Fit is not good. Every brand has helmets that fit me well. I can't wear it for more than 10 minutes because it's tight. The face shield piece is the problem. Save money and time. I bought a BELL Super DH. It's a better fit and it's a lot more solid. I was never expecting this to be the ultimate do it all helmet, crash against a tree and laugh. These types of design have weaknesses. The Bell has weaknesses. There is a This helmet was as fragile as could be. There is a Forget about the certifications. I don't know how they certify it, but it is a poor thought out certification that will hurt people.
👤I dropped my helmet in the garage because I was standing at about knee height. The chin guard broke when it hit the floor. The only thing that holds the metal chin brackets is a thin plastic case. The chin guard has nothing to hold it up. I didn't figure this out in the crash. This helmet is a poor design. I wouldn't buy a beefier model or just a standard full face helmet, for sure. The helmet is awesome and I don't notice much weight difference compared to a standard bike helmet when I'm riding. I don't take the face guard because it straps to my pack easily. The guard is easier to install than the older models. It clips down when it slides in. Really easy. The chartreuse is a yellow safety vest. When I am on the road, the color stands out and my friends love it because they can see me through the forest. The visor detent clips were caught by a low branch on my pack, but I did bust one of them. It was my fault. It has a Go-Pto mount, so no problem. I'm happy and feel safer on the trails. In the world of downhill, regular helmets don't cut it. The seller finally gave me the $175 refund after 14 months. That's ridiculous. I would not buy anything from this seller again. Hope you don't have to submit for any type of timely return, or you will be very sorry about your transaction.
Quick-adjust bolts help keep straps flat and properly positioned. Woven with real silver fibers, quick-drying materials. The Multi-directional Impact Protection System is a leading slip-plane technology inside the helmet that is designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain impacts. The chin bar is designed for trail riding. Attaches with a simple 3-step connection process. Overbrow Ventilation has intake ports on the brow of the helmet to push cool air through the air- channel matrix. The visor system can be adjusted to fit both goggles and glasses, and works with or without the visor attached. A camera mount that does not require zip ties or tape is designed to break away after impact to reduce the risk of injury. Small, Medium, and Large sizes are specified. Take a head measurement. Even within an age range, head sizes and shapes can vary. A helmet that does not fit can be dangerous.
👤The Bell Super 3R is against Giro Switchbade. First, I'll talk about how I ride. I need a FF for those times when I hit the downhills as hard as I dare, because I have to climb everything I go down. I have a Sixsixone FF and it's fine if I just go downhill the whole time, but you also hit trails that go back up a ways then down again. The FF doesn't work well for this, so I've been looking for a hybrid which I can adjust easier than taking the FF on and off constantly. I didn't try the new Giro Switchblade until I bought it, because no one had it in stock. It looked great at first glance, but after trying it on I realized there were several things that weren't going to work for me and how I ride. The build and protection on the Switchblade is better than my Sixsixone, which is officially downhill rated. The locking mech is very good. It had thick padding inside. The dial sticks down a ways here. When you bend your head back in a riding stance, the dial would dig into my back bone. If you crashed head first, the dial would drive right through your spine. The Switchbade was very hot after just a few minutes of wearing it around the house, I was already breaking a sweat. The cheek pads were too tight. I think this helmet was as hot as my FF Sixsixone. There were pressure spots and loose spots in my head. I use sound a lot for my balance and I didn't like having my ear covered. I returned the Switchbade because there was no way I could live with those issues. There is a I picked up the Bell 3R after my Switchbade experience. The Switchbade is heavier duty than the 3R. The 3R is not downhill rated. The chin guard isn't as strong as the Switchbade, and it's more flexible and light duty. The padding is thinner in the 3R. The 3R fits my head better. It's not bad, but the top of my ears rubs on the helmet. The helmet seems a bit wide, and the straps come down from the outside of the helmet, allowing it to wobble a little side to side, but not bad enough. The most important thing for me is that the dial doesn't dig into my spine at any angle. Being lighter doesn't make the 3R hotter than the Switchblade. Even with the chin guard on, this helmet is very cool. It felt lighter on my head, which made me focus on riding. I think the 3R chin guard is more difficult to install than the Grio, but after a few tries I've gotten a lot better at it. The 3R received a thumbs up. It's not perfect, but close enough for me. I hope this helps anyone looking at these. There is a Yesterday I had my first big crash with this helmet. These things are not something we're prepared for. I am very happy that I was wearing this helmet. I would have been in the hospital right now with missing teeth and facial flesh if I hadn't been. I took a jump and then mis timed a second one, stuffing my front wheel in a 3ft hole at medium speed. I was thrown into a rocky creek head. I hit my head so hard that my eyes wouldn't focus for about 5 minutes and my ears were ringing loudly. The frames of my glasses broke. When I got my sight back, I could not believe that there was no damage to my face. My head and face are undamaged, even though I have a good headaches and messed up back. My ass was saved by this helmet. I had the small chin guards in and the inner pads removed. This was a lot more comfortable, but it did allow my face to press more to the front of the helmet on impact. I see the value in the cheek pads.
You can cruise up to 15.5 miles on a single charge if you ride your hybrid bike on full throttle. Kickstart is a crowd-funded smart helmet. It is practical. The turn indicators and automatic brake lights are easy to understand. The impact resistant foam liner and PolyCarbonate shell are protection. 500 lumens of front and rear lighting is visible at eye level on the roads. The helmet size fits heads from 21 to 24 inches. Every purchase includes a helmet, charging cable, wireless remote, rubber bands, and a card.
👤I ride my board while wearing this. I've had people stop me and say "thanks for wearing that helmet!" Some bikers are asking where I got it. I feel more visible on the road. There is a The price is the only reason I'm deducting a star. I would prefer a helmet with lights and no controller. Since I ride with a boosted board, holding the turn signal remote by itself feels clumsy, and mounting it to the boosted remote is too heavy. I would love to design and 3D-print a new boosted board housing that the signal remote can lock into.
👤I ride 3000-5000 miles a year, but I am not a hard core cyclist. Group rides in the 30-90 mile range can last up to 4 hours. I don't use a bike to commute. I like my current helmet, but thought it would be easier to see if I wore a helmet. The helmet does everything it says, but there are 2 drawbacks that I will return. It is heavier than my helmet. It is material on long rides but not on a commute or ride less than 25 miles. I used it on a 35 mile ride and it made my neck and upper back sore. It is the first ride for me. I don't want that on a 35 mile ride. It's not ideal. 2. The life of the battery. I had it fully charged and on the first setting. The battery gave out in 80 minutes. It doesn't work for me on long rides, but it would be great for people doing 30 mile rides. Great product, great safety, great concept, but it doesn't work for me.
👤Where do I start? This is one of my favorite purchases. I love this helmet. It is the most comfortable helmet I have ever owned. Everything works as advertised so far. The front lights are bright enough to be seen, but not bright enough to be useful. I put a light on the top of the helmet. The turn signals make me feel safer while riding in the city. I don't know what they look like from the perspective of drivers behind me. The design seems to have been thought out. The helmet and the turn signal controller have magnetic charges for them. When the turn signal is initiated, a sound is emitted. It's difficult to put a price on safety. I think this helmet is worth a lot.
👤I received my helmet on April 18. I ride 16 to 20 miles a day through rural developments. I looked at several style led helmets and considered aftermarket blinking led lighting for my existing helmet, until I found this helmet. It worked out of the box. It was easy to pair it with my phone. I adjust the helmet size for my large head. I turned on the brake light after running through charging, left and right turn signals. I had my wife follow me as I tested the light. I adjusted the sound to be heard on the 8th led flash. There are also options of none, 4th flash or every flash. The turn signals are very good. The helmet's front and back are illuminated by turn signals. The battery life seems to be good since I ride for an hour and 20 minutes. After each ride, I charge my helmet and turn signal device. I ordered a second magnetic charging cord from Lumos after finding no problems with the first one. I can tell that drivers coming toward me and coming from behind give me more respect on the road. I paid full price for this helmet. I'm not connected with Lumos. The helmet is the final version of the project and I'm looking forward to any software updates. Be seen and ride safely. Buy it!

The Multi-Directional Impact Protection System can be used in a crash. VIVID SHIELD is a fully magnetic system that is easy to use and has VIVID lens technology that increases contrast and definition while keeping colors true to life. VENTILATION AND COMFORT. The helmet can be suspended just slightly off the top of the head to allow air to pass over the head and exhaust from the rear. The Roc Loc 5 fit system can be used to adjust vertical position and tension.
👤I have competed for Team USA in triathlons. I heard good things about this helmet, so I bought it. I could tell that the helmet was fast by the way it felt. During the training rides, I felt very hot and sweat started dripping down the vizor and onto my face. The size ran small. It was the worst part of the race. It took me a long time to get the vizor in place. The worst part was that the ride fogged up. I had to remove it because it got so bad. The order was very expensive.
👤I wear this on several training rides and races. It is hard to say how much it helps, but I think it is worth a few seconds per mile. It was good to wear in cold conditions, but it was too hot for anything over an hour, as sweat starts getting on the inside of the visor.
👤I was excited until it was delivered. The retail box was ripped on the top and sides as it was brand new. Figured a box. The helmet had a weird smell, but the benefit of the doubt might be that it was a new car smell. I tried it on and it was good, but the visor pressed up against my ears and it felt a bit sharp, so I decided to not use it. The tail blocks the ability to adjust the tightness on the back of the skull. It was difficult to adjust to my skinny fingers. There is a There was a dirty spot on the helmet. I didn't want to mess with it by then, but it looks like poop, so I'm totally disappointed. There is a It should come with a carrying case for $300. Most others in this price range have a case. It would be a good choice if it was around $150, but considering how this is suppose to be new, something just doesn't add up.
👤I took this out for a ride today. I bought this helmet based on the recommendations. My own experience is here. I started the ride in the dark. It is in place. I put it on when the sun came out. Wow... It makes the noise quieter. It makes me ride faster when I go into the tuck position. I spent less wattage and rode faster. I was worried that the helmet would be too hot to wear. The helmet with the visor was still cool even though it blocked the holes. I never felt my head getting hot once the helmet was in place. The temperature went up to 86 degrees. I will be using this for my ironman in September. A great helmet.
The helmet has Multi-directional Impact Protection System technology that reduces impact forces. The Conehead is ideal for biking, skateboarding, rollerblading, BMX, derby, and commute. The U.S.CPSC has a safety standard for bicycle helmets for people over the age of 5. Includes two sets of Sweatsaver Fit Pads, a chin strap with a side release buckle, and a dial system. Size S/M is 21.7 in (55 cm) and L/XL is 24 in (60 cm).
👤I wanted to like the helmet. I put this on my head and was told I looked like a spoof kid. I am a full grown adult with a huge helmet. It is heavy for a skateboard helmet. I ordered a brand that was cheaper, lighter, and smaller than this one. If you don't like your safety gear, you won't wear it.
👤It feels snug and comfortable. The bigger helmet is better for people on the high end of the medium size measurement. I was too small for the medium size.
👤This is my bike helmet. It costs a bit more than most of the other helmets, but it is just as good. I've already tested it and it came out just fine. I wear it with my bike garb and a black neck gaiter and my neighbors think that it's Antifa.
👤The dial in the back popped off. There is no crash or rational reason. I think a helmet should last at least eight months.
👤The helmet was very good. I would definitely recommend it. There is a There are two things that I think can be improved. The fit adjustment dial on the back can loosen the fit of the helmet if it is not in place properly. It can pop off of the helmet, which is what happened to me, and now the dial is missing. Staying in the correct position and being attached to the helmet securely can improve this mechanism. There are two more The air quality is poor. The vents are good for cooling, but not good for active ventilating that pushes air into the helmet and causes it to fall out. I found this out because my head would get very hot while biking in this helmet, so I now use it exclusively for skateboarding, where I don't get as hot.
👤I'm not happy with my purchase of this helmet. I used to own a triple eight helmet that was fantastic quality and comfort, so I thought I'd upgrade to a newer one that was made with MIPS technology. Since triple eight doesn't ship internationally from their official website, I had to order from US Amazon. I had to pay for shipping and import fees and the helmet didn't fit me. If you wear a helmet that's larger than their biggest size, this won't fit you.
👤To large. The padding on my head is large and fit to large even after changing to the second padding. The dial works well, it won't let you tighten the brow on the helmet shell, and it won't let air get into the helmet, just direct the air around the under side of the helmet. It feels heavy on the head. I ordered dual certified to see which one I preferred. For different reasons, they returned them. I liked the Gotham and it was more comfortable after about 2 minutes inside.
Market-leading performance and protection. Giro has a helmet test lab. The MIPS Brain Protection System is integrated with the Roc Loc Sport Fit System for an added measure of protection in certain impacts. Universal fit structuring: Straight out of the box, get the right fit. There are 18 vents. Light weight and resilience are important. Excess weight is eliminated and the tough outer shell is permanently fused to the interior liner.
👤The visor is not replaceable even though it is designed to snap on and off easily. This is my first experience with giro and it has left a bad taste in my mouth. Good companies typically can replace all of the parts on their products. From now on, I will probably avoid giro.
👤I bought a Giro helmet for my kid less than six months ago and it is going into the trash because of a cheap component that broke during adjustment. The knob came loose when it was turned to tighten. There was no sound of something breaking. I thought it might have been disconnected from something, but it's broken. How can a child be protected if it snaps? I expected this helmet to last several years until I outgrew it, so steer clear of it.
👤My daughter outgrew her little kid helmet so I ordered this helmet. The purple color has a black GIRO logo on it. We tried it on and it fit. She took off. She pointed out that it was supposed to be pink. She's sad about it, but the product seems to function well, so we've kept it, even though she's already worn it several times. It makes me wonder if this is the correct product I paid for and not a fake or a previous model. Someone would love to explain to us why we got the wrong helmet.
👤The helmet is perfect for active kids. My 4 year old daughter was upgraded from the Scamp when she got her first bike. She wore the scamp well on her balance bikes. It fits like a mountain bike helmet, with full coverage around the base of her head. The base of the head is not covered by normal helmets. The size is correct. There is a The bright green color of the visor makes it easier to see cars and it keeps the sun off her eyes. It works like a safety vest without the risk of the other kids making fun of her. It was a parent trick. The straps are fully adjusted. I think this will fit her until she is at least 10 years old. We will be worth the price, we cannot recommend this enough.
👤Where is the description for this helmet that came up under searching for adult helmets?
👤This is a great investment for anyone looking for a helmet that won't kill their budget and functions well. I wear it for mountain biking. I'm still learning to improve my skills and that leads to some pretty special crashes at times so I'm always worried about safety. I don't have any concerns about this helmet. I tested the helmet's breathability by standing in front of a fan and it blew at me. The air flow is amazing. I don't think I'll get overheated while I ride. It's so lightweight that I don't notice it at all, except for the view of the visor at the top of my peripheral vision. The universal youth helmets fit me better than the adult women's sizes because I am an adult with a small head. I used the chart to measure my size. The helmet's purple color is almost more blue than its purple counterpart. I would have been on cloud nine with it if it was the same color as the lining pads and the buckles. I have no regrets with my purchase. I had to return a helmet I received because of a defect in the packaging. The replacement was in perfect working order and the exchange was fast. There is a The lightweight budget friendly is a good thing. Easy to adjust. It wasn't what I expected.
Bern has a custom-integrated light that provides up to 10 hours of visibility and is water resistant. The protection of the MIPs. The Hudson MIPS is certified to NTA8776 safety standards and has a low-friction layer. There is a universal lock. U-lock is compatible with the vents at the back of the helmet, which are reinforced for extra security. Light weight and strength are available. The lightweight, in-mold construction weighs less than a pound, and 13 strategically placed vents provide optimal airflow. Simply twist the dial on the back of the helmet for a snug, secure fit.
👤I recently commuted on a scooter to work and wanted a helmet that looked adult. This is in line with both criteria. The red light has a strobe and flash mode, and is bright. It is also portable and can be charged through micro-usb. There is a The helmet has an impact system. Good to know that if I fall, I will be able to keep up with what I know. The thin plastic lining in the helmet that shifts on impact allows the helmet to absorb more force than a traditional helmet. The impact energy can be transferred into your brain, which is not good. Very important. I was surprised that the visor kept the sun out of my eyes during my morning commute. The visor is positioned to keep my eyes out of the sun, because the helmet sits above my eyebrows. The visor is also replaceable and they have a separate strap that you can use to soak up sweat. There is a The helmet has a friendly harness system with a twist knob. You need to get the correct helmet size to get the perfect fit, but you can tighten the knob to get it. No fiddling with a bunch of straps and trying to get it right. You will feel the occipital knob on the back of your head and know it is where you want it to be. There is a It's well worth the money for an easy to use and very safe helmet with many great safety features.
👤I have had this helmet for a year and have not had a complaint. It looks good, easy to fit, and I liked the visor and light. I know for a fact that the helmet did the job when I took a spill. When I rode through the park, I came off the edge of the pavement, and the drop off was deeper than I anticipated, and I lost control and wrecked. They say "everything happened so fast" but I remember hitting my helmet hard on the pavement and hearing the helmet hit the pavement. I had a lot of injuries on my arm and leg. I'm pretty sure that things would have been worse without the helmet. I will buy this helmet again.
👤The light on the back should be changed so that it doesn't fall off every 10 seconds. I couldn't find it again after the last time it fell off. I just bought a Thousand "Chapter MIPS helmet" that was $30 cheaper, yet better quality, and no issues with the backlight, because there is a stupid looking opening in the back. I don't like that I bought this.
Market-leading protection. Giro has a category-leading helmet test lab. It's called MIPS. The Multi-Directional Impact Protection System can be used in a crash. COMFORT: The Roc Loc 5 fit system can be used to adjust vertical position and tension. VENTILATION: There are 26 wind tunnel vents. Light weight: In-molding construction.
👤The inside of the helmet has a clear plastic sheet with holes in it. It's probably not a big deal for production cost calculations. It is a bike helmet like any other $30 helmet that I own. The black-white contrast of the slots are sleek. It pains me that I fell for the coolness factor when I bought this helmet, but I wouldn't buy it again.
👤The helmet has a lot of space on the side. It was designed for a round head, but it didn't feel right to me. Propero III by Specialized is a helmet that fits better for an oval head.
👤Awesome helmet. I have owned Giro helmets for 5 years. The reason I gave 4 stars was because the red color doesn't match the bright red in the picture that Giro has on their website.
👤I bought the Cinder to see if I could get an upgrade from the Syntax. The Cinder was disappointing to me. The design makes you look like the Coneheads. The sides are so narrow that they give me a huge headaches after I took the helmet off. There is a Finally the weight. It was like I had a bowling ball on my head. This helmet is poorly designed. The Syntax and Foray are both more comfortable than you might think. They look a lot better than this.
👤The retention system is pretty good. The helmet can really strap your skull in close. The cap opened up nicely and was cinched tight with the extra layer. I have a large head and a fitted cap. There is a This is a big helmet and heavy with a wide profile, which is my only criticism. The Giro Synthe is a better bet if you want more aerodynamic. There is a With it being such a big helmet and the fact that my dome is well protected, it definitely gives me more confidence when I ride my bike. The helmet has a nice design. So far, so good. If the helmet had a slight slimmer profile, I would get a 5 Star.
👤I have had many Giro helmets over the years and this one is no exception. The Cinder MIPS seems to be very comfortable. I don't notice the weight of the size medium because I have it on, but it's 330 grams and I have it on. The Cinder should be very safe with the built-in Roll Cage technology. The helmet is too warm on a hot day, especially on the climbs. The smaller-sized vents on the CInder may be the reason for this, as well as the plastic liner that wraps around your head, which seems to hold the heat in. The heat retention is a downside of standard helmets. Giro has a new system called "Spherical" that doesn't require a plastic liner. The liners are being moved away from the other manufacturers. I'll probably replace my CInder with a Spherical helmet when they come down in price or go on sale.
Market-leading performance and protection. Giro has a helmet test lab. The aerodynamic design uses Transform Air Technology to reduce drag. The MIPS Brain Protection System is integrated with the Roc Loc 5 Air Fit System for an added measure of protection in certain impacts. VIVID SHEILD has a magnetic on/off system and VIVID lens technology that increases contrast and definition while keeping colors true to life. VENTILATION AND COMFORT. The wind tunnel vents allow air to flow through the helmet. The Roc Loc 5 Air fit system can be used to adjust vertical position and tension.
👤The Giro Aeon has been my primary helmet for the past year. That is the basis for the comparison. I have not worn this helmet on any rides without the visor because I only bought it for the visor. I've taken it out on 4 rides, one of which included a 889' climb with 4% decent. I've been a cyclist for over 20 years and can be a little critical when it comes to my gear. The helmet is not perfect out of the box, so I give it 4 out of 5 stars. The desire to purchase an aero helmet is due to the winds being 5-10 mph this summer. My first ride with this helmet was on a windy day. I noticed a reduction in drag about two miles into my ride. I ride a road with a 45 mph speed limit in between my house and my favorite cycling trail at 41 mph. I am very pleased with the reduction in air resistance. There is a The videos on the Giro website presented some interesting airflow and wind tunnel tests that had me very optimistic about the cooling effects. The Giro Aeon is my go to helmet when there is no wind and it is noticeably cooler. During the months of July and August, it is usually between 85 and 100 degrees. The conditions are very bad. The visors block some of the air flow that would come up from underneath the helmet. The four vents on the visor bring in air. I have to hold my head at a specific angle to maximize the air flow. This is not going to be a problem during the fall, winter and spring. I anticipate loving this helmet in the fall and spring. I ride down to 20 degrees if there is snow or ice on the road. Reduced air flow is going to be good. Giro makes their helmets with nice color schemes. The designers could have put more effort into the appearance of the helmet. I had a hard time selecting a color. I didn't like the color black. I like helmets that help drivers spot me on the road. The white was not colorful. I spent a few days making metallic silver strikes with a black fade. I'm not the best at airbrushing so it's not perfect but it looks better in the meantime. There is a I am okay with the lens. I haven't experienced any issues with fogging yet. The magnetic locks seem to work well so far. The visor has a good field of view and does not interfere with my peripheral vision, which was a major concern. The glare off the road and trail surfaces hasn't been too bad with the lens that came with it. I wanted to order a clear lens so I could wear my photochromic cycling glasses underneath, but they are not cheap and hard to find. Giro does not sell replacement glasses. When I contacted Giro to inquire about replacements, I was sent a link to a different website. There is a handling fee for orders under $100. It would have been great if Giro could have ordered the helmet directly from them. I don't want the lens that comes with the helmet in winter. I need a clear lens so I can wear my photochromic cycling glasses. The anti-fogging will be tested in the winter. I wear a balaclava. The glasses fog when I stop breathing. I'm hoping the lens is far away to prevent that from happening.
Protection and performance are interdependent. Giro has a helmet test lab. There are two technologies that protect against rain: scientific technology and the MIPS protection system. Ball-and-Socket Design is powered by MIPS, which makes it possible to redirects impact forces without compromising comfort, style or weight. The market-leading brain protection system addresses the motion of the head for an added measure of protection. There is progressive laying. The liner addresses high and low-speed impacts for more comprehensive energy management. The cooling power of the helmet can be enhanced by the use of internal and wind tunnel vents. Light weight and resilience are important. Excess weight is eliminated and the tough outer shell is permanently fused to the interior liner.
👤Saved my life! I have 100% faith in this helmet. I hit a mountain on a steep downhill when I missed my turn. It is likely going 30 miles an hour. It hurt. I broke my collarbone and a few ribs. Did I say it hurt? I didn't realize I had dents in my helmet. The doctor said the helmet probably saved my life. I didn't guarantee you wouldn't get a concussion. I will buy this helmet again.
👤I only opened the box about 15 minutes ago, so my initial impressions are only "OK." I expected my excitement level to be the same after opening the box as it was before. I should've ordered a size M, but I ordered a size L. I know my head is large, and many times it is in the 2XL category. If the M has a broad adjustment of the L, then perhaps an M could fit as well. It's hard to believe that a small piece of lightweight plastic and foam costs $300. In my hands and in front of my eyes, it's not a good helmet. The sticker on the item I selected indicated that it was a 2020 model, but I think this is not a big deal. The "Spherical" sticker is not visible in online photos on the right-rear of the helmet. I would like the sticker on the helmet to say "MIPS Spherical." It's obvious that the helmet has the technology, but it's not like buying a Mercedes-Benz AMG and not getting the AMG badge. In some "unboxing" videos, the unboxer removes the helmet from the box and puts it in a lightweight bag. It is similar to a bag that protects shoes if they are traveling in a suitcase. My helmet didn't have a bag. A $300 helmet should have a bag. There are three small "regular" pads and one brow pad in the helmet. Five years ago, my Giro helmet came with additional pads. The helmet should come with spare pads. What looks like a nice paint job in online photos is, in reality, a cheap sticker applique. I bought the gray-red-white version of the Aether and it appears online that there is a texture or fade on the white portion that gives the helmet a cool, almost custom look. It looks like a sticker with lots of bubbles. The feel is smooth, so there are no bubbles, but it looks cheap, like a protective sticker over the white paint. It's not, it's the finish to the helmet that's disappointing. The helmet is only 15 minutes old and I'm worried that it will chip and peel. I know the real cost of this helmet is on the development side, not on the materials side, but I wish Giro took a few extra steps to make the customer feel like they were getting more bang for their buck. The missing "Spherical" decals and other issues are more disappointing. The Giro Aether is a great helmet and will protect my head better than other helmets, but I expected more from Giro at this price point.
Market-leading protection. Giro has a category-leading helmet test lab. It's called MIPS. The Multi-Directional Impact Protection System can be used in a crash. Universal fit structuring: Straight out of the box, get the right fit. There are 22 vents. Drugging: In-mold construction.
👤The old Register and the new MIPS Register are sold by Giro. The seller's description says something about the register. The seller applied a bar code label to the box, but it was not on the helmet. I called Giro to make sure this wasn't a helmet. The suspension has yellow plastic pillars that support it, but the inside back label does not have the word "MIPS" on it. Just said Register. I hope this was an honest mistake, but worried that other buyers will not complain.
👤There is no way to adjust the side straps that form the triangle on each side. The helmet can't be adjusted to keep it from rotating up and off the forehead. The triangle legs' location front to back on the head is fixed due to stitching. The length across the chin is the only adjustment on the straps. A typical mechanism would have addressed this. There is a The Roc Loc is good for tweaking the helmet but not addressing the straps. The seller provided good service and prompt delivery.
👤I bought this helmet after the dial on my Revel broke. There are some notes on notable differences and similarities. I owned Giro Indicator and Transfer models before. I am familiar with their offerings in the low-mid range. After I glue the adjustment dial in a static position, I will keep the Revel as a backup. If you don't use the adjustment dial often, the Register is a solid option that will likely last 3-4 years of daily use. There is a Lighter than the Revel, 280g versus 314g. The lighter/thinner straps seem to be of similar strength. More padding on the touch points makes it comfortable out of the box. There is additional padding in the interior comparison shot. The model name is molded onto the rear of the outer shell, which is a nice aesthetic touch. There is a The same adjustment system is used by the Revel and theRoc Loc. It's easy to use, but the plastic components of the dial mechanism won't stand up to daily use. If you can, set it and forget it. It will last a couple years with frequent use. You can see the larger overall in the photos. The visor attachment is weak compared to older models. The visor should not stay on over rough terrain.
👤The helmet is awesome. You might think you're getting your money's worth if you buy something cheaper. I was considering buying the cheaper non-mips version of the helmet, but after doing some research on the technology, it made sense for me to buy this helmet. The visor is easy to install and remove, I have provided pictures. It comes with 5 pads that are replaceable once the old pads are worn out. I'm not going to keep it in the box. The box was not a case. Until the manufacturer makes cases for helmets, forget it. I will not take all the stickers out of my helmet. The serial number, model number, and the stickers are all important information, and I learned this after doing it on my netbook. You might be screwed if you don't have that information. Don't peel the stickers when you're not sure. I really like this helmet. After a few months of use, I will give you an update, but I highly recommend this product!
