Cut the drag.

The Giro Air Attack Shield Helmet shaves precious time when you're racing and training with its sleek, streamlined profile that's wind-tunnel tested for maximum efficiency. Keeping your vision unobstructed at high speeds, its Air Attack shield redirects air with its Flash shield. This polycarbonate shield is produced by Carl Zeiss optics, easily fastening out of the way with its magnetic clips. The Roc-Lite Air fit system slightly elevates the helmet off your head, facilitating air flow and heat exhaustion with the internal channeling and six external vents. This system also adjusts for a secure, stay-put fit with the simple twist of a dial.

  • In-Mold polycarbonate shell with EPS liner
  • Air Attack shield with magnetic fasteners (Gray/Silver Flash included)
  • Six vents with internal channeling
  • Roc Loc Air fit system with removable X-Static padding
  • Slimline buckle

What you see is not what you get.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Be aware that the blue/black helmet pictured on the website is NOT accurate. I ordered one and this is what it actually looks like. Nothing wrong with the design of the helmet, but I will be exchanging it for a different color.

A Good Addition to A Quiver of Helmets

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'll admit, the Giro Air Attack Shield is not my only helmet. I also have a Kask Vertigo and a Rudy Project Wing 57. I use my helmets for both triathlon training as well as triathlon competitions. The Giro Air Attack Shield claims to have great aerodynamics, but so does the Wing 57. The Giro Air Attack Shield, however, is great for very hot weather. Too have great aerodynamics, but also have great ventilation is quite an accomplishment. I've used the Air Attack in triathlons when the weather was incredibly hot, and I never felt like I was over-heating (all while using a helmet with great aerodynamics). I also really like how you can flip the shield upside down and get it out of the way while riding if you decide you no longer want to use the shield. The shield attaches to the front of the helmet using magnets. Most helmets with shields have no mechanism for moving the shield while riding, without removing it completely and stashing it somewhere on your person. So the design of the shield is great.

One downside of the helmet is the the mechanism in the back used to cinch the helmet onto your head. It's a very small, serrated dial and, to be honest, it's hard to operate particularly during a competition.

In the end, you can't go wrong with this helmet.
