Item # GIR007J

The Atmos II's dirty brother.

After years of watching a wide range of athletes buy its beloved Atmos road helmet for off-road racing, Giro decided to go ahead and design a mountain-ready version of the new Atmos II, and so created the Giro Fathom Helmet. A structural clone of the Atmos II, boasting the new Thermoformed SL Roll Cage, the Fathom gets its own styling and a removable visor, making it just that much more ready to hit the trail.

The SL Roll Cage is the skeleton that gives form to the helmet's EPS liner. It keeps the helmet together under impact, acting like a second shell to maintain the helmet's structural integrity and disperse impact. The added strength also means that Giro can add negative space to the Atmos II without sacrificing safety, so it's more ventilated and lighter than its predecessor. The Atmos II still takes advantage of Giro's In-Mold Composite reinforcement, which permanently fuses the outer shell and SL Roll Cage to the EPS foam liner to enhance the effectiveness of all three.

In an age of mass production, Giro's Roc Loc 5 Fit System makes the Atmos II fit like a custom one-off. You can custom tune the fit tension as well as the fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds with one hand. Though other helmet manufacturers have similar adjustability options, none of them even come close to the weight savings that the Roc Loc system offers; it's almost 40% lighter than comparable systems.

Keeping your head cool during even the hottest, most critical road races is something that Giro has focused a great deal of attention on. Giro helmets are developed with a proprietary Wind Tunnel Ventilation System that combines 26 vents in the shell with exhaust channels within the belly of the helmet leading to the rear. Fresh, cool air from the front is strategically channeled around the head to help evaporate the sweat before exiting through the rear exhaust openings. It's a natural cooling system that you'll appreciate every ride.

  • SL Roll Cage maintains helmet’s integrity in the event of a crash
  • Removable Visor
  • 26 Wind Tunnel vents move air in, through, and out of the helmet

Just starting to test

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Because of a very wet spring here in Utah I have not had the chance to use this much. The fit seems good so far. I will update this as I get more rides in.

Now if have several rides in the mid summer months with this helmet and it is working great. Light and airy. I am stoked.

Light & Cool

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Live in hot and humid Houston. I replaced an older Giro road helmet with a real visor that blocked the morning sun, that helmet also routed the sweat in the front around your face and no sweat drip on glasses and face until the pads wore out.

The new helmet is smaller looking lighter and well ventilated, fits well and adjustable. It is cooler than the old one.

Only negatives are the visor is useless for blocking morning sun.
I removed it and went back to using a chopped cycling cap for morning sun and there are vents in front that do help cool better but you do get sweat drip.

Great XC Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love this helmet for XC riding. It is so light, comfy, and airy that it feels like I'm not wearing anything.

The Roc Loc 5 is awesome and easily adapts to headshape, hairstyle, and head coverings. You could for sure wear a bandana or skullcap under this helmet and still be comfortable. But then again I don't know why you would, it's just so well ventilated! I've definitely taken a few hard spills and it's showing no signs of damage.

If you're looking for a go-to lightweight XC style helmet, this is it! You won't be disappointed.

I'm a Large in most head apparel (I guess I'm filled with hot air) and this helmet was no different.

Great XC Helmet

Awesome and well vented XC helmet

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

Rode with the helmet during an Israeli spring heatwave (+30 c). Awesome ventilation, immediately you feel the air flowing all over your head. Trumps previous specialized S-works helmets with good ventilation themselves. The giro isnt as lite as the S-works but also not as expensive. If your helmet needs to be safe and vented, this is definitely the helmet for you!
Giro could learn from specialized when it comes to strap endings and length that are very long and dont really solve dangly straps. I personally dont find this a big deal as the rest of the design is very aesthetic.

Great warm weather MTB Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Living in FL, I prefer a helmet that has a lot of venting, is lightweight, and is comfortable. The Fathom does all three while still providing better protection than using a straight-up uber-light road helmet. The new wider straps and roc-loc retention make this thing very comfortable too.

A couple other little features I like are the removable visor and the small rubber plugs you put in the visor holes on the helmet to give it more of a finished look with the visor off. Also dig the extra set of pads.
