Item # GIR007H

Dabbling in affordable aero.

The world of cycling has come, in the last few seasons, to a deeper understanding of the importance of aerodynamics in helmets. Witness the pro peloton's adoption of slippery, low-profile lids virtually across its teams, and the rising popularity of helmets like Giro's own Synthe or Air Attack, shown to reduce aero drag by as much as 14% in the right conditions. That's not a small amount, either. But because we can't all afford the pros' stuff, Giro brings wonderful pieces like the Giro Foray Helmet to market, so us mere mortals can enjoy the tech and style of the pros, just without the stress of trying to afford them.

We can tell you off the bat that the Foray isn't quite as light, as breathable, or as slippery in the wind as the Synthe, but it's darn close. It utilizes many of the same technologies in both materials and manufacturing, as well. It's made with Giro's In-Mold construction. a technique that firmly unifies the helmet's EPS foam liner to a polycarbonate shell, as opposed to simply adhering the two together, creating a lighter, stronger structure that's ultimately safer. The helmet follows Giro's Streamlined Design language, allowing slick style to permeate the functional aerodynamic shape that dictates the helmet's efficiency. Finally, the Roc Loc 5 retention system dials in the proper fit to your head, comfortably and easily, while still being up to 40% lighter than competing systems.

A lime green pop of visibility.

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

My old helmet was more than five years old; time for a replacement. This one is lighter weight and more comfortable than my old one. It is summer here and my head stays cool because this helmet is well ventilated. It is a bright yellow-green which happens to be my favorite color, and I'm sure it's very visible in low light. A good purchase!

Solid

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a solid helmet in that it doesn't exactly excel in any areas but gets the job done. As noted in another review, my main gripe with this helmet is that the the strap adjustment point digs into your face. It is not to the point of wanting to return the helmet, but noticeable at times. Overall the helmet is fairly light and fits fine with the proven Giro retention system.

Straps need work

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Really wanted to like this helmet but had to return. Great looking/fitting helmet but the straps and 'side buckle' (where the strap on each side meet in a 'V' are an inferior design. As much as I tried to adjust the buckle, the rear strap would always twist forward, pressing into either the side of my face or ear. if the straps would lay flat on the side of your face, it would be comfortable to wear. Also, the strap material is what they call tubular nylon, I believe. There is other material, woven like what you find in a seatbelt, that is more flexible, thinner, and more comfortable. Not sure if it's on all Giro's or just the 'affordable' models. Checked out a Specialized Propero II at LBS and it was about twice as much but also twice as comfortable. Strap design and material was completely different.
