  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Just started boarding last season so I knew I needed to protect my nog whilst getting my learn on. Definitely paid for itself within the first few times of use- heh!

Warmth wise, it feels fine. I guess I stay pretty warm.

Snagged one for my girl too in a girly design/color.

Does the Giro Encore 2 helmet have room for you to wear the helmet comfortably with your hair in a ponytail?

Responded on

Yes- depending on how thick your hair is... My girl wears hers in a pony. Her hair is about shoulders length and medium thickness.

good basic helmet

This is a great helmet, the multisport certification on it is great too...why buy a snow and bike helmet when you can just have one? Just remove the ear pads and its good for summer. Ample venting too... I didnt think it was too cold either, but I havent used it in the crazy cold though probably only 25-35 degree range. It would be perfect if it had a slider to close the vents... still great though. Fits with my smith gogg's nicely too.

Freaking Cold!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The helmet is lightweight and quite comfortable, but I did not realize how over-vented it was until the first day I wore it skiing. One of the things I like about helmets is that they keep your head and ears toasty warm and dry. I wore it on a fairly mild PNW skiing day (25 degrees, light snow, no wind) and my head froze off. The vents are not closable like every other helmet I have owned.Wearing this helmet on a cold day in the Rockies would possibly be fatal. Unlesss there is an easy solution I will need to find aa different helmet.

does the job well

Light, comfortable, warm, easy fitting. The three adjustable pad thicknesses are a must, especially if you can't try it on or might wear it with or without a layer underneath. My first and likely only helmet after many years, quite happy with it.

Everything broke but the helmet!

Took a bunch of nasty spills on a real icy day and caught some gnarly bumps and bruises everywhere but my head. This thing is great. Don't even feel it when I have it on. Lightweight and warm.

Does the helmet come with the headphones...

Does the helmet come with the headphones or do you need to buy them separately?

Orange Tulip Helmet

Heads up! This is a girls helmet! Although the picture only shows bright orange, the OTHER side is covered in flowers! Definitely not for an orange loving boy! :-)

good helmet

this is a solid helmet that has just the right amount of vents in the right places. the ear covers come off easily to convert it into a summer helmet, making it a good year round helmet for any action sport. there is thick padding that make it very comfortable, and it comes with extra to customize the fit if thats not enough for your. also, the strap padding is really nice; having used helmets without that, it helps you avoid chafing that can occur after time

Exellent buy!

I really like this helmet. It fits me really good and unlike alot of other helmets, this one is a good fit for many different head shapes. It comes with some extra padding so that you get that snug fit. And it really has a cool design. I love it.

Lovin' the helmet

I have enjoyed this helmet. It is super comfortable and has protected my noggin' without movement. It doesn't slide around like I expected but stays in place while skiing down some big hills. It keeps my ears warm without any extra cover on my head as well.

Love it

My third season with this helmet and it has never let me down. It's super comfortable, I forget it's on. My head is never too cold or too hot. I have the tune ups in mine and they sound great. Recommended for sure

Like the helmet

It fits very well --- even on the first day. Only minor comment is that the back snap was almost too small for my goggles, but it worked out.

I like it!
