Product Descriptions
REI Description: The Giro Advantage 2 helmet represents the pinnacle of aerodynamic performance and competition-proven design and fit. Wear it for time trials and triathlons; Advantage 2 helmet is perfect for when every thousandth of a second counts. Roc Loc 5, the newest retention system from Giro, makes adjusting fit tension and vertical position easier and more comfortable than ever; loosen/tighten with a simple twist. Wind Tunnel(TM) ventilation with 5 active vents and internal exhaust channels thrust cool, fresh air over and around the head, while forcing out heat and stale air. In-mold technology bonds the helmet's tough outer microshell to the impact-absorbing expanded polystyrene liner, creating a light, cool and strong helmet.

Backcountry Description: For over a decade, the Giro Advantage 2 has proven to be the pinnacle of aerodynamic performance, with a rich history of wins at the pro level. Giro relies on wind tunnel data to improve even the smallest of details to shave seconds off your times.

Custom fit might sound like a pretty big campaign promise, but Giro's development of their Roc Loc 5 Fit System has made it possible to make those micro adjustments. With the Roc Loc system, you can tune the fit tension as well as the fore and aft tilt of the helmet with one hand. Though other helmet manufacturers have similar adjustability systems, none of them can compete with the Roc Loc system in terms of weight: it's almost 40% lighter than comparable systems. In a helmet style not typically known for being light, this is a significant reduction. Remember those days in the early 2000s when the UCI made it so that aero helmets had to have the same EPS safety foam as the regular road helmets' For those of you who never missed a Lance Chronicle, you'll remember the Giro designers going through all sorts of hell to get an aero helmet ready that would be acceptable to both the UCI and Lance. The Advantage 2 is the love child of that relationship. Through the use of In-Mold construction, the durable but light outer shell is permanently fused to the impact absorbing EPS foam liner. This process enhances the effectiveness of both parts. In fact, the fusion process actually reinforces those formerly vulnerable spots around...
