What customers say about "Key Specs"
Giro Foray Helmet, Matte Black/White, Medium
  • The removable liner pads came fell apart on first (hand) wash. Luckily, they replaced them for free without my receipt but I had to push pretty hard.
  • I've been using this product for over a year as my primary helmet. It's comfortable in the Florida summer, well ventilated. I was happy with it. Last week, I got hit by a car when crossing an intersection.
  • Wore it for a 12 mile ride first time out and forgot I was wearing a new helmet. Very comfortable and looks great.
  • Great helmet for any type of biking really. I use it for daily rides in the city.
  • Not a bad helmet for the price, it's light and is comfortable. It definitely is not as "fancy" as other more expensive versions from Giro but it does me fine
Giro Savant MIPS Helmet (Black/White, Medium (55-59 cm)
  • The Giro Savant is a helmet that I've stood by for a while. I've wrecked in a few of them while road and mountain biking and lived to tell the tale.
  • The helmet looks nice and fits great. It is not as low profile as some of the other helmets I have seen, but looks like it will protect my dome very well in a crash.
  • Excellent bike helmet from Giro, the fit is perfect and very comfortable to wear on long rides
  • Great fit, sleek design and, most importantly, seems to have great safety features!
  • The only thing I don't like, there is a thin transparent plastic lining inside and my hair gets caught in it whenever I pull it out.

What customers say about "Features"
Giro Foray Helmet, Matte Black/White, Medium
  • Fits confortably, easy to adjust, and very light and compact so it’s very easy to stow away.
  • Nice helmet, even fits my larger than average head :)
  • Extremely light and comfortable. Easy to adjust. Nice price point as well.
  • This helmet is great - very easy to adjust and light weight. The only problem I have is that it's a little narrow for the back part of my head.
  • Very light weight. Easy to adjust for size. Well-vented. Don't love the strap. Nice helmet.
Giro Savant MIPS Helmet (Black/White, Medium (55-59 cm)
  • If you want to know about MIPS, you can go read the research from someone who knows what they're talking about, but I was convinced (as someone who wrecks and hits my head occasionally) that it was worth a few extra bucks, even if it's just artificial peace of mind.
  • This helmet is very comfortable. Lots of air vents keeps my head cool when riding. Would definitely recommend this helmet.
  • Perfect fit, very comfortable and well-ventilated. The MIPS system seems like good tech, hopefully won't be testing that.
  • This helmet is very comfortable. Lots of air vents keeps my head cool when riding. Would definitely recommend this helmet.
  • MIPS system is well integrated and is what really caught my interest.
