Head off-road.

You've finally been convinced by your own curiosity and wise instincts to give mountain biking a try. Well done. Whether you're coming from the road side of things or not, having a dirt-specific helmet is helpful, as it'll give you more protection along the back of your head where you're more likely to get whacked by a tree branch or rock. If function ranks highest on your list, check out the Giro Cartelle MIPS Helmet. It meets the same safety standards as higher priced helmets, sacrificing slightly on weight to meet a more friendly price point.

In addition to a solid, lightweight In-Mold shell, the Cartelle also comes with the added protection of MIPS. MIPS, or Multi Directional Impact Protection System, refers to a thin basket added to the helmet's interior, which rotates slightly upon impact to absorb some of the dangerous rotational energy generated in certain crashes. It's not fail-safe, but it's a lot better than helmets of five years ago were. Understanding that trail riding includes a whole lot of climbing, Giro carved 14 vents into the Cartelle, making sure you'll have consistent airflow while you sweat. Spin the dial of the Roc Loc 5 fit system to hone in on the exact fit you want with one hand, and enjoy a plush, breathable ride with Coolmax padding along the helmet's interior.

Good but getting old quickly

I've used it several times

I bought this helmet and used for one season and the lining right above the forehead is peeling and looks gross. I am still giving it 4 stars because I hit my head on a rock and the helmet saved me and didn't even crack, but wish they would have put the hard part over the area where the lining is peeling.

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

I have only gone of a few rides with this helmet, but it was in 90 degree weather for 1.5 to 2 hours at a time and I must say this helmet is super comfortable. My head did not sweat at all and I actually forgot I was wearing a helmet. I found the visor adequately blocked out the sun. I did have to repurchase the helmet because I originally ordered the medium, but it was too big and I could not get it to fit correctly. I sized down to a small even though my measurements are a little over 22 inches which is in the medium range according to the chart. I find the small to be very comfortable and fit correctly. As other have mentioned the strap system could be a little better. I did have to tighten it all of the way in order for it to fit, but it worked out fine.

So far so good

I've put it through the wringer

I wear this helmet for MTBikng and like it. It feels lite and has decent venting. The visor is nice, but I do wish it came down further. The lowest setting still seems to be a bit high to block out sun, and pushing it up just looks funny. I bought the smaller size and it is snug, but the larger size was too big - something in between would be perfect. Overall it is a good helmet.
