Pros & Cons
Pros & Cons
- Highly aerodynamic but still provides sufficient cooling during warm and long rides.
- MIPS system offers additional safety.
- Do you not like the visor? This is removable!
- With Roc Loc Air Fit, you can adjust the helmet perfectly for a super fit.
- Because of the visor he looks a bit bumpy.
The MIPS System exists out of a low friction interlayer between the EPS lining and padding with an elastic fixation. This allows the helmet to move (slide or rotate) during a crash. It will move around your head to catch the side and rotational forces that could occur during a crash. This in contrast to a helmet without MIPS, whereby the impact is only collected by compressing the EPS lining.
The In-Mold Construction combines a strong polycarbonate outer shell with
shock absorbing helmet padding. Thanks to its fusion process it is possible to sculpt a better ventilation system, so the In-Mold helmets are lighter and cooler than most traditional helmets.
Roc Loc Air Fit
The Giro Roc Loc Air system is specially developed for the Giro Airo helmets. This new system ensures the helmet floats a little bit above your head. As a result there is a good airflow over the top of your head what ensures a good ventilation. Just like the Roc Loc®5 system the helmet can be easily fine-tuned. The tension around the head and the vertical position can be adjusted with one hand. With this Giro sets the new standards for ventilation and comfort.
Besides the fact they are comfortable The X-static pads ensure anti-microbial properties to keep your helmet longer clean . The pads are machine washable.

Good but some details let it down
This is a good helmet. Comfortable, reasonably light and decent ventilation. Visor is an added value, especially if you wear prescription glasses. The magnetic visor function works well when on but not so good upside down. My visor has cracked for no apparent reason on the nose piece. Could do with a magnetic strap fastener.
having a visor
not a magnetic strap fastener
removable sweat pads "flaking"
Overall a very good helmet
I have done a number of rides and have found the helmet to be pretty good. Over longer rides 4h+ it get's a bit uncomfortable
Magnetic strap holder would be better
Slightly uncomfortable on long rides
Could be a game changer
Could be, with a few improvements. Chin catch is too fiddly, would be much better if magnetic like the best climbing helmets catering for cold or wet hands. Ratchet is very small and the sizing isn’t correct, my head measurement was in the middle of the range for medium fit but actually it’s right on the lower limit and could do with being a bit tighter. On the plus side it’s liberating not to have to wear glasses.
Poor design, visor magnets malfunction when fastened upside down
I wanted to love this helmet. It looks great, and appears to have a practical design concept that allows you to take off the visor from it's magnetic fixings, and affix it upside down to the top of the helmet to ride without the visor covering your eyes. On delivery of the helmet I was really impressed, the design is slick, and the helmet fitted great (I've a 62.5cm head, so just fitted the Large). I was excited to try it out. On my first ride with the helmet it was an exceptionally hot day in the UK, being 30 degrees. Of course being an aero helmet I was expecting it to not have the best ventilation. Cycling along at speed, it is fine. But when you are going uphill, or stuck in traffic you heat up very quickly. Beads of sweat were starting to run down my face, and I was taking off the visor from it's magnetic fixings to wipe my face and reattaching it in place. I got on with the ride, and thought 1) most days aren't this hot here, and 2) if I'm using this in an event like a 70.3 or 140.6 I'll be well ventilated at pace. So was happy enough. However the next ride I tested the helmet was on another hot day. Midway through the ride I got tired of taking off the visor to cool down, so I stopped at the roadside, took off the visor and attached it upside down to the helmet on it's inbuilt magnetic fixings, as the helmet and visor is designed to do... I set off cycling down the road, and was at some pace, when I had to look over my shoulder to check for rear approaching vehicles when I saw a pot hole approaching. At this point the draft wind caught the visor, pulling it off it's fixings, and visor then fell to the tarmac and skidded down the road. The visor was scratched right across the line of sight, and frustratingly unusable. It could well have been run over by a car, or even caused an accident if I was riding in a group. At this point, after the failure of the product, I lost faith in it. The magnetic fixings on the top of the helmet are not sufficient to hold the visor in place when it's flipped and fixed on top, as it's designed to do. It will not hold the visor in place, and you risk loosing it, as i did, and it getting damaged. The magnets do not align and secure the visor effectively when the visor is flipped upside down. I have returned the helmet and received a refund.
Poor Visor Design
Great piece of kit
Brilliant piece of equipment. Great in the rain. Much better than I thought it would be. Visor holds firm on windy rides and is good in wet conditions. Quick delivery and great services from Mantel. Would recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing this piece of equipment.
Visor excellent in rain
