Giro Helmets – maker of the world’s finest bicycle helmets
Giro, based in Scotts Valley, CA, is a worldwide leader in the design, development and marketing of premium, high-performance protective gear and accessories for action sports and active lifestyles. Since 1985, Giro has been at the vanguard of helmet design and protection. Helmet technology has improved steadily since the mid-1980s.
Ski racing helmets and bicycling helmets used to be clunky things that were heavy and poor fitting because helmet construction technology lagged significantly behind the science of head protection. Thus the cyclist or skier who wanted head protection was limited to heavy motorcycle-like helmets with little or no vents. Then in 1984 came a new protective standard, ASTM F2040, and an ingenious designer by the name of Jim Gentes who had a vision to create lightweight, well-vented yet highly protective headgear that could achieve this new ASTM F2040 standard.
Gentes founded Giro Sport Design in 1985 and introduced the first Giro bicycle helmet to market in 1986, an oversized, expanded polystyrene (EPS) bicycle helmet that came with interchangeable bright-colored Lycra cloth helmet covers. Because it had no hard shell, this new Giro cycling helmet was incredibly lightweight. It was also extremely well vented. And with the interchangeable covers, Giro brought style into the mix. One day you could ride wearing a red Giro helmet, the next day you could wear a blue one. Over the next two decades, Giro continued to advance its bicycle helmet designs. Giro was able to apply much of its experience in constructing bicycle helmets to manufacturing ski helmets and snowboard helmets. With more units sold than any other manufacturer, Giro is quite simply the leader in the development of protective gear for your head.
