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
  • 17 Wind Tunnel™ vents, internal channeling
  • X-Static padding features anti-microbial properties and is machine washable

          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.

                Solid and lightweight. fits tight around sides of head so will be better for oval head shape rather than round.

                  Comments about Giro Xar Helmet 2014:

                  The Xar is pretty much the helmet that most Trail Riders need. It's not overly Enduro-y or Downhill-y and fits great, breathes nice. It has the build quality of a pro helmet without the pro price, and will last you a long, long time (so long as you don't crash), and it'll protect your head and look good. What more can you ask for?

                    Bought this helmet after I broke my Giro Hex in a crash. The Xar is a huge upgrade, and worth every penny. Fits my head perfectly. My head size is right on the border of md/lg and the Xar med fits ideal. I Can wear this all day, with no discomfort or headache. Plenty of vents to keep things cooled off, and useful for helmet cams and headlamps too. Love the look of the flat white color too. The roc loc 5 system is awesome. Super easy to adjust and keeps the lid from floating around while in the rough stuff. Highly recommended helmet.

                      Sweet helmet. Upgraded to this from a ~2004 Giro helmet. The rocloc fit system is awesome and clamps down very nicely. I didn't think the 15* adjustable visor would be that cool, but I use it a ton. I took a pretty good digger and slammed the helmet pretty good. No signs of structural damage or even superficial damage. This helmet seems pretty beastly. It's very light too. Just finished the 2014 Leadville 100 with it.
