Mike Nixwrote a review of Giro XAR Helmet on February 17, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fits great, comfortable too. HOWEVER, the padding will peel and the roc loc plastic will break. Giro calls this normal wear and tear. I've owned my Xar for less than a year and now I have the option to spend $40 on replacement parts. That said, I guess I can't get a helmet this good for $40.
