Nice Helmet

Overall, a nice helmet. I feel that it runs quite large though, making your dome piece look pretty big. From the sizing chart, I was on the small end of the "Large" size, which is what I purchased. In hindsight, I should have purchased the medium helmet as the internal adjustement will allow you to open it up. I later tried on a medium in a store and was able to get my head in their comfortably. My only real complaint is the clip for the chin strap. On most helmets, the clip is offset to allow for a chin pad. On this helmet, the clip falls directly under the chin, which does not allow for any padding and can cause some minor doscomfort. I eventually got used to it, but I think that Giro should consider this in future designs.

Responded on

One other thing I forgot to mention... the goggle strap holder on the back is pretty flimsy. It works well for keeping your goggles in place, but I used it to attach my helmet to my backpack and the fabric pulled over the bolt that holds it in place. I was able to jimmy a new strap since the bolt can be removed with an allen wrench, but a plastic or rubber strap would be a nice addition. Even with these faults, I still like the helmet very much for its simplistic style.
