Giro XAR Helmet Special Order 2013

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 difference between this and a $50 helmet is the fit, feel and weight. The GIRO Xar looks good too. If you want a great helmet that offers good protection, isn't too heavy and will feel great after several seasons, the Xar is a perfect choice.

          Comments about Giro Xar Helmet Discontinued 2013:

          I've an Asian head and fitting helmets can be a challenge. I've been wearing an X-large Giro road helmet that was a bit too big front and back but one which I still loved. There's a slight squeeze on the sides with this new Xar helmet but none that's too much an irritant. The adjustability of this helmet is awesome and I don't have a helmet is bouncing around all over the place on rough terrain. To my eyes, it's the coolest MTB/all-purpose helmet around. The white with the stylish orange and lime green graphics may be too pretty, so I'm seriously contemplating buying another in matte black. That's how much I like and appreciate this helmet. But at $65 including shipping, the white is excellent when the temperature exceeds 85 degrees.

            Comments about Giro Xar Helmet Discontinued 2013:

            I've owned several helmets and this is my favorite so far. I had a Uvex Supersonic previously which had several excellent features, but the visor was too long and low and had no adjustment so I either had to wear it too high or remove visor. The Giro XAR offers a great fit, looks great and the visor is much less obstructive and also can be tilted up or down. The weight is good for this style which offers more protection and feels a little more solid than other helmets I've worn.
