Product Descriptions
REI Description: Airy and comfortable, the Giro Saros bike helmet offers plenty of ventilation and an easy-to-use fit adjustment so you can ride in comfort.

Backcountry Description: To us, the hallmark of a Giro design are its three central vents. And, not coincidentally, you'll find this feature on the Giro Saros Helmet. It was originally part of the Prolight design, but nearly every subsequent helmet has revolved around the three prominent central holes. To us, this trident conveys stability and balance. And while Giro builds on older designs, it never adds baroque touches, instead opting for little practical flourishes. So, in this tradition, the Saros helmet hearkens to the long-gone days of the Eclipse, while moving forward into the contemporary. With the Saros, you receive trickle-down technology 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 your casque 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 (that is what a helmet does, right'), the Saros 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 Saros 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. Ba...

I was wearing an extremely old helmet that probably would not have saved my life in an accident. Decided I needed a new one and this one looked good and was fairly inexpensive. I was concerned that I would get the mushroom head but this is not the case. Great helmet and I received it in two days! Extremely impressed!
