Giro Road Bike HelmetsThis is the proving ground for advances in bicycle helmet technology. As such, Giro road bike helmets are, for the most part, at the vanguard of head protection science and at the top end of price point. Giro road bike helmets include:
Giro Mountain Biking HelmetsGiro mountain bike helmets have evolved over time from their Road counterparts but employ many of the same advances as road helmet technology. However, mountain bike helmet shapes and features are a bit different than those of road helmets to accommodate the different needs of mountain bikers. Giro mountain bike helmets include:
Giro Fullface Bike HelmetsThis is the most specific category of Giro bicycle helmets. Fullface bike helmets need to be worn by mountain bikers who participate in downhill, 4X/Dual Slalom, and freeride trick jumping. Due to the nature of their design, Giro fullface bicycle helmets are the most protective helmets in the Giro bicycle helmet line. XSportsProtective carries one Giro fullface mountain bike helmet:
Giro BMX Bike HelmetsThe BMX helmet category includes what are often called skidlid helmets. BMX’ers, dirt jumpers, and half pipe trick riders don’t need helmets that are tremendously well vented because they don’t typically ride at threshold heart rates for extended periods of time. These riders tend to wipe out frequently but at low impact speeds, so BMX’ers need helmets that provide excellent head protection with a high degree of durability. The answer? An EPS foam liner like a road helmet, but with a thick, durable ABS plastic or polycarbonate exterior hardshell that can deflect multiple low-energy impacts. Giro BMX helmets include:
Giro Commuter Bike Helmets/Recreational Bike HelmetsThe helmets in this category are similar in style to Giro road bike helmets and pass the same tests for head protection certification. However, they do so without some of the latest advances in lightness, venting, and features. That also means they’re comparatively less expensive. Excellent for recreational cyclists and commuters, Giro commuter bike helmets include:
Giro Youth Bicycle HelmetsGiro youth bicycle helmets offer the same level of protection as recreational Giro bicycle helmets but in a size and weight for active kids. XSportsProtective carries:

Giro Helmets – maker of the world’s finest bicycle helmetsGiro, 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.
