Giro Xar Helmet 2012

The XAR offers all the features you’ve come to expect from Giro’s top-level trail-riding helmets-P.O.V.™ adjustable visor; In-mold composition with EPS foam and polycarbonate shell; Roll Cage™ reinforcement-but the XAR heralds a new era of performance, comfort and style. At the heart of this helmet you’ll find 17 Wind Tunnel™ vents as well as optimized internal channeling, and the visor is vented to increase airflow. Breathability on the XAR is incredible; there’s never been a lid this breathable on dirt. Even the padding is extraordinary thanks in part to X-Static fabric.

My second xar I would by this again and
I love this helmet. This is my second one the first protected my headin couple of brutal crashes. It is light weight and has tons of airflow vents which is great on those long hot summer days. It is one of the most comfortable helmet I tried on and fits perfectly.

PROS: Light Weight, Great Comfort

CONS: no cons

Excellent Lid
One of the best fitting and ventilated brain buckets I have used. Fit is near exact.If you follow the fit guide on Giro's web site and you fall in the middle of the size you will do fine. If you fall on the bottom or the top of the spectrum you should definitely find it local and try it on. As for performance, once you put this helmet on and fit it, it disappears on your head. I never have to fidget with it. Even on hot days at rest, you will forget you have it on. Great buy.

Saved my head in a crash
Owned this helmet for a little over a year and really enjoyed the fit and comfort. I ride in the Southern US, so the air ventilation worked well enough for me too. Last weekend I was in a really bad crash. Landed on my back. The back of my skull was the second part of my body to hit the ground. The XAR did it's job. It stayed on my head, absorbed the impact, and I walked away. The helmet was cracked clear through, just as it was supposed to. My backside still hurts like hell, but I'm concussion free (not to mention coma free). Buying a new XAR right now.

Excellent
This is a replacement to a Giro Xen that was due for replacement based on age. I tried a friend's Fox Stryker and find this Xar to be more comfortable and to sit better on my head. I can't speak to the hot weather venting yet as all of my rides since getting it have been in the cold. It is adjustable enough to fit a skull cap under it and the vents are laid out well for strapping a light to it.
Overall, I'm very pleased with the Xar to this point. If it holds up as well as the Xen did, it'll last for years too.
