Giro Pneumo Helmet $149.95
One helmet for all of your riding.
We can never get enough of versatility. Sure, there are some things that are better left dedicated, like time trial helmets, but this still doesn't dispel the excitement of using the same helmet on the road, trail, or commute to work. However, until the Giro Pneumo Helmet, this simply wasn't a possibility.
With the Pneumo, you receive technology straight from the top models, like the Roc Loc 5 --Giro's easiest to use and most comfortable retention system to date. Also used in Giro's top-of-the-line Aeon helmet, Roc Loc 5 adds more adjustability, while removing 40% of the weight from its prior iteration. So, what's different? For starters, the indexed Micro Dial on the back lets you adjust the tension to perfection with a two fingered twist. It's really that simple. Additionally, the Three Position Bracket allows 15mm of vertical adjustment in the retention basket -- enough to comfortably fit any head shape. But, what's comfort without ease of use? Giro facilitates quick donning of the Pneumo with clever strap management. The retention basket has strap holders to ensure that they'll be right where you want them by the time the helmet falls into place.
For protection, the Pneumo features an in-molded polycarbonate shell that, when combined with the expanded polystyrene liner, creates a structural skeleton that's abrasion-resistant for any high speed slides across the pavement. Giro has also ensured that it aids in the absorption of any direct high-speed impacts. And going a step even further, the Pneumo also has Giro's Roll Cage technology. Don't worry about looking for it -- you'll never see it. It's a net of tough nylon that's been molded into the foam liner of the helmet. Basically, this 'web' keeps the helmet from breaking apart like a rotten ice chest when you have a bad crash. The Pneumo has 19 Wind Tunnel vents to channel airflow directly to your head in order to keep you as cool as possible, regardless of high temperatures.
Giro has also given the Pneumo a few features that extend its versatility of use. For example, for use on the either the trail or your commute, the Pneumo makes use of Giro's Point of View visor technology. This visor anchors to the helmet with Giro's patented internal clutch mechanism. Why's this important? Well, the clutch eliminates rattle on harsh terrain, and it also allows for 15 degrees of tool-free vertical adjustment. So, as the light conditions change, so can your protection.
The Giro Pneumo Helmet is available in the sizes Small, Medium, and Large and in the colors Matte Black, Matte Black/red, and White/silver.

I LOVE this helmet!!! The fit is perfect.....And I took a huge chance on the size. I just started riding seriously in the last 18 months. Every person in the bike shops has been telling me that I needed a medium. I bought 2 different brands in medium, but both made my head hurt after I had been riding a while. When I saw this helmet on sale in the yellow, I decided to take the plunge and get it in a large. What a fantastic fit! So perfect for me because I have lots of hair, even pulled back. I had also been wanting to try a Giro, but none of the shops in my area had the nicer ones. Thank you Back County for carrying this helmet. Now I know where to buy my next helmet.
nice and durable
