The Talon Ski Racing Helmet is Giro’s second entry (after the Giro Streif) into the downhill racing helmet category. It is a highly protective, truly attractive downhill racer’s helmet. Made for skiers who are serious about their racing, but who may have additional things in their shopping cart to purchase, this is a helmet that provides both excellent protection and some venting features that are not offered on Giro’s other downhill race helmets.

Passive Venting System: Most downhill racing helmets lack vents, in part, because the International Ski Federation does not allow them, but also because vents are not aerodynamic. A quick glance at the Giro Talon shows only two rear vents, which are acceptable since they are rear facing and covered with wire mesh. However, unscrew with your fingers the two removable aerodynamic race covers and you open up on the Talon another six passive vents to cool you down when not racing.
What is Super Fit? Giro’s Super Fit engineering process is the foundation of every one of Giro’s ski and snowboard helmet designs. Every model is scaled and shaped for its intended wearer using a database of cranial measurements compiled from hundreds of people large and small, young and old, currently skiing the globe. Conceptually speaking, this means that if there is a perfect fitting helmet out there made specifically for you, most likely it is designed and manufactured by Giro.
