    Since I am exactly between the L and M size I decided to go with the L.
    Out of the box the helmet is just beautiful ,I purchased the red white and black ( a matter of taste of course)
    The GoPro bracket leaves a lot to be desired , it is loose and the camera rattles continuously , quick fix is to glue the bracket pieces together permanently (you are still able to remove it from the helmet )
    It appear that you have to use the provided bracket for the GoPro for "on top" position as the shape of the helmet cause the sun visor to block most of the forward view if you tried to mount a bracket anywhere else on top of the helmet.
    There are many panels inside of the helmet and it appears that removing them is too easy ( in comparison to other helmets) time will tell if it is not going to become a problem.
    The pockets for the earphones works real well but for me where there is "hike a bike" and some pedaling involves it is impractical since the music is gone while the helmet is off so I am back to putting the helmet over the earphones and with this helmet it is still very comfortable .
    I really dislike the D ring strap , it's a real pain taking the helmet off and on and especially while wearing gloves.
    On first( and only ) ride the helmet felt tight so I was happy I went with the L size , 20 minutes into the ride and the helmet felt more and more loose to the point I couldn't ride any more.
    I exchanged it for the M size and after feeling real tight at first it felt better as the ride progressed so if you are too on the border or close to it I would recommend a size smaller ( and that is actually what was recommended to me by the Jenson rep)

    I had the misfortune of testing the protection of this helmet ,I had a high speed "face first" crash , my face was dragged on a real rough terrain for a good 15-20 ft ,being dragged on the sun visor and the chin protection part , I was sure the helmet was gone and the sun visor would be in pieces , I was shocked to see that the helmet sustained only a minor paint chip and absolutely nothing happened to the sun visor. so as far as protection I would give it 5 stars.

    Ordered this helmet back in November and was really excited about it. Jenson was able to get a few in and sent me one earlier than the back-order stated. Great customer service as they re-routed the package for me.

    I opened the package and found a great looking helmet at first glance...sadly, there are too many details that show poor handling or poor quality control by Giro. There were small scratches on the helmet...not a big deal cause I'm sure there will be more, but I like to be the one who puts scratches on things I buy new. The velcro that holds the cheek liners is already ripped off from the helmet. I was inspecting how you remove the cheek pads and you can see the velcro is coming off the helmet, so I decided to leave it alone cause it will likely come off if I remove the "removable" pads. There was also a glop of what looks like super-glue on the visor. Also there are cut marks or tool marks on the helmet next to both bolts that hold the visor on.

    I want to love this helmet, but it kind of feels like the helmet I bought is not "brand new." This isn't Jenson's fault, and all of what I mentioned are issues I can live with...I was just hoping for more quality control from GIRO.

    As for the helmet fit, it fits tight as a new helmet should. I crushed my ears a little putting it on, but once it is on, my ears popped into the pocket nicely. Feels very secure and the strap is top notch. I haven't ridden with it yet, so can't speak to its ventilation. I have no doubt that it will stay secured on my head though. As stated earlier, it looks great, minus the paint scratches.

    For the most part, I love the helmet...but I can only give it three stars due to the condition it arrived in. One star for GIRO's quality control!

      Comments about Giro Cipher Helmet:

      I first had the 2014 model, and loved it. Unfortunately, I had a nasty spill and cracked it, so bought this. As I've come to expect with Giro, this bad boy is sweeeeeet. Fits well right out of the box, and looks cool as frigg. I got the flat black, and to my surprise, it really isn't too hot in the direct sunlight. Once this one gets too old, or I wreck again, I'm sure I'll be getting the newest model!

        So this is my first full face helmet. However, i have rented many others before (which is gross, so i decided to buy one). This helmet is great! My head is about 59cm around and the size large fits great. However, if my head were any smaller, i would probably try a medium.

          When I ride lifts I like a full face helmet. This was the best value. It is lighter than what I had and works well. The pads do press on my cheeks a little but I hope they will pack in. Otherwise the only other issue is the strap is buckle only which can be irritating with gloves on. I liked having a quick connect on my last helmet.

            I've had many full face helmets, including the Giro Remedy, Troy Lee D2, Fox V3R, a couple different Bells, and a few others. This is BY FAR the best DH/FR helmet I've ever worn. It's the most comfortable, best fitting, and in my opinion the best looking. The TuneUps speakers (sold seperately) work amazingly as well. I have yet to try the GoPro on it but the mount seems very solid and there's no obstruction from the visor.

            It does have a snug fit, but it feels like it's meant to, to help with protection. Haven't tested it's impact protection yet, but hopefully I won't need to. The quick-release side pads are a nice addition, should the wearer have a bad crash.

            Comments about Giro Cipher Helmet:

            This helmet is my first full face and I really like it. Pretty light, with a solid overall feel. I had to reorder to size down the helmet from my normal CM range on my other lid. I'm assuming its because there is so much padding it felt loose so size down for a more secure fit. The pads will break in and it will be perfect after a ride or two. Helmet came in great condition and looks sharp with the matte finish. Would be 5 stars but the camera mount is shaky at best, its designed that way so it pops off vs break if you decide to get intimate with the ground at high speed. Replaced with the curved adhesive pad mount by go pro in call it 3 seconds which is a night and day difference in shot quality. Time to ride.

              Not only does it look good, it protects! Wrecked yesterday on a jump pretty hard that resulted in my head slamming the ground hard enough to scratch the helmet and take a chunk out if the plastic shell. Didn't phase me. Broke my collar bone, but the ole noggin wasn't phased.

                  The first day I tried it on, I thought the cheek pads were too tight. After about 2-3 uses, the pads wore in and it's super comfortable now. I haven't used the speaker pockets. The mount for the GoPro is pretty nice. It seems sketchy but it's worked on 4 big gnarly rides. The visor does not adjust! That's probably the only downside. It's in a stationary position and cannot be moved. You can remove it but it's where it is. It's in a fine position but it would be nice to have the option.
