Giro XAR Helmet 2014

THE CZAR OF ALL-MOUNTAIN

All-mountain riding demands gear that is versatile, lightweight yet durable, and comfortable enough to ride for extended periods of time in varying conditions. The XAR helmet was developed with the needs of aggressive trail riders in mind. Giro's in-mold construction process fuses the helmet's outer shell with its impact-absorbing EPS liner during the molding process, making the liner literally a part of the helmet. This process reinforces areas around vents and ribs, creating a one-piece exoskeleton that allows the helmet to be lighter, more durable, and better ventilated than traditional designs. The proprietary Wind Tunnel™ ventilation system, combines active vents with internal exhaust channels that thrust cool, fresh air over and around the riders head-while forcing heat and stale air out. More ventilation means long lasting comfort for those epic rides. Whether you're climbing a winding strip of singletrack or descending down a rock littered mountainside, the XAR's ample ventilation lets your head breathe.

Giro spent two years fine tuning the Roc Loc fit system to bring you Roc Loc 5, a groundbreaking fit system with an unmatched level of comfort, stability, adjustability, and weight savings. With Roc Loc 5, you can easily dial-in both fit tension and adjust vertical position with a single hand. Twist the ratcheting, micro-adjusting dial for a tighter fit on rough terrain, and back it off a bit to relax across the flats or up a warm climb. A three-position bracket allows for 15 millimeters of up/down movement for easy fine-tuning of vertical positions. Even with these impressive features, Roc Loc 5 is 40 percent lighter than its popular predecessor, Roc Loc 4. Adding to the pile exciting features, The P.O.V visor puts the finishing touch on this awesome helmet. The visor is anchored by a patented internal clutch mechanism and is capable of 15 degrees of tool-free, on-the-fly vertical adjustment.

Features:

  • Suggested use: All Mountain, trail riding, Endurace/Marathon XC, Super D
  • P.O.V.™ adjustable visor w/ 15° vertical adjustment
  • Construction: In-mold - EPS liner, polycarbonate shell
  • Roc Loc® 5 fit system

      Comments about Giro Xar Helmet 2014:

      I've recently purchased my second Xar to replace my well worn original so that should indicate how much I like this helmet. Ventilation is great, adjustments are simple and effective, vent layout works well with headlamp mounts and there is good protection for the back of the head.

      The only drawback to the Xar is the sweat pad design. All the sweat pours straight down the middle of my face which I find really annoying. Other helmets I've owned channel the sweat to the temples which is more comfortable.

      I also found the Xar fits one size larger. I normally use Large helmets in other brands (POC, 661, TLD) but I needed a medium Xar.

      Despite that negative, I still think the Xar is a worthy choice... especially if you get it on sale

                The Giro Xar is well built and proportion to the head unlike other helmets where some parts were too bulky. It has enough vents to keep your head cool in the summer. During winter, you will need a skull cap or a head warmer underneath. It is lightweight where you actually forget you're wearing it.

                  So far its a great helmet, I haven't had any hard falls to truly test it, but its comfortable, fits well and plenty of ventilation. It has a little less coverage on the back of my head than the Fox Flux, but for my average usage and the price, I would buy this again.
