lightweight and comfortable!

Everything I expected

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a solid product that does everything that the manufacturer claims. Plus, buying it through backcountry.com provided me with a great discount!

Good Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I tried this and the Pneumo. Very similar in lightness, but has more vents.

Great Helmet with Roc Loc 5

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have a few Giro MTB helmet and this is the first one with Roc Loc 5 and the are so easy to turn and adjust. I like the Matt Black color and the simple design. It looks nice with and without the visor. The 300g weight is ok for Mountain Biking and you hardly feel the weight. The strap is thin and soft unlike some low end Giro helmet. Since I was my helmet after long ride, cleaning the padding is a little inconvenience. It has 5 pieces and I lost 2 small one. I would recommend them when on sale since it is pricey for full price.

Won't break the bank!

This is a good value helmet for racing. I used it for my first Iron Man. The fit adjustment dials in the fit well so the helmet stay put while riding hard.

Great value, fits the ladies too

My wife loves this helmet. If only it came in a few more colors that were women-specific, it would be perfect, but the fit is nearly as good as much more expensive offerings from Giro and she likes that the visor is there for dirt rides and removable when she's on the road.

Great value, fits the ladies too

Very pleased with this purchase

Nice looking helmet in the matte finish. Sizing chart is correct. Helment comes packaged with 2 plugs to fill holes if peak is removed and larger pads for smaller head cirumferences. No replacement pads included as with the 2 previous Giro helments I've purchased but this isn't a deal breaker. Great price from Real Cyclist.

Where did you find the silver finish (i.e., not the green)?

Responded on

From Real Cyclist...I think I may have ordered the last one.

Does the lid detach?

Does the lid detach?

It appears to. There are 2 plugs included in the packaging that look like they would fill the slotted holes had I removed the peak.

Great Helmet

This Helmet is great. I have been using it for a few months now and am very happy with it. It is light and fits great. I had an older Athlon with the RocLoc 4 system and was happy enough with it but the RocLoc 5 system on the new Athlon is definitely more sturdy and better designed. The venting is good and I like the fact that the visor is removable for when I jump on my road bike. All in all it is a great helmet for the price.
