Total Bummer, No Good for Skiing
I am totally sad to say that this was my dream team helmet, and when I got it I was totally stoked.
Then the grommet in the helmet where the visor screws into had glue in the threads from the manufacturing ,and that spun and stripped it out in the Carbon, and it took 20 minutes to pin it and get the Visor off, then it wouldn't go back on. I called up Back Country and they rock, they sent me a brand new one overnighted and a return label,
AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE!
Then I got the new one, was sweet, took it up to the mountain, rode it for 3 hours and put it back in the bag and put my old Giro with no face guard on.
YOU SEE, when you breath!!! out your breath hits the mouth guard and sends all the Fog straight onto the front of you goggle lenses and you can't see a thing and the world goes grey and blank for 15 seconds, every time you are stopped or going slow.
I was on a 20 foot cornice, ready to drop, and breathed out and lost site of the world, almost fell of, I waited, breathed down against my neck, and then held my breath and dropped clean. Unless you are doing about 15mph plus or breathing with your lips pursed down this helmet will cause your vision to be ruined by fogging your goggles.
Get a Boeri with a mouth guard bar on it and call it good if you need a full face helmet.
The other thing, is this bad boy is big and a little too warm when you get heated up and has no controllable open or close for venting.
Light, comfy and badass
Super light helmet, very comfortable , big opening suitable for most goggles, Ventilation works great on super hot days.
I feel so much more secure wearing this skiing trees since I hit one couple years back and broke my jaw!
the only thing is everything attached to it keeps falling off, I already replaced 2 of the screws to the visor and also the goggle strap holder in the back fell off.. but this is after 2 seasons..
It's just that u can't put this helmet on and go ski a green run all day, u look ridiculous! this helmet screams badass and u should buy it if u think u can live up to the hype..
overall I highly recommend this helmet
I have a Giro S Carbon Alpine Helmet and...
I have a Giro S Carbon Alpine Helmet and have broken the visor. Does anyone know where I can buy a new one?
Just call up Giro customer service man! And fyi, if I didn't return mine cause it fogs up your goggles every time you breath you making you BLIND I would totally give you mine. First thing I did was get rid of the huge Non Aerodymanic Visor!
lightweight full-face protection for skiing
Great, lightweight protection in the trees or in rocky areas.
Goggles fogged up a bunch while skiing until I cut the front mesh out (cut with a knife, rather than ripping it out) and after that, the ventilation was great
great deal from SAC for $110
This helmet is super light and very comfortable.
It interfaces with goggles really well too.
I like using it with the huge Electrics because they fill the space so cleanly.
