Giro Xara Helmet -
Giro Xara Women's Helmet 2014.
Xara is Giro's women's specific version of the popular men's all-mountain helmet—XAR. This premium off-road helmet is perfect for riders looking for a stylish low-profile helmet with maximum ventilation and exceptional durability.
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 XARA 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 XARA'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.


  • Roc Loc 5 fit system offers one-handed adjustment of fit tension and vertical position with a ratcheting, micro-adjustable dial
  • Roc-Loc® 5 suspension fits like a dream, holding the helmet in place effortlessly; anchors directly into the liner for great durability

Ready for casual or aggressive trail riding, the Giro Xara Women's Helmet balances ventilation, weight, and durability to keep you cool and comfortable. The Xara gets the same expert engineering found in Giro's top-line helmets -- that means it has the same In-Mold process that make Giro helmets some of the strongest and lightest on the market.

The In-Mold construction process fuses the outer shell to a EPS foam liner. This process enhances the effectiveness of both parts. In fact, the fusion process actually reinforces those formerly vulnerable spots around the vents and ribs. It makes them lighter, more durable, and better ventilated than helmets with shells that are glued to the liner. This process safely creates 17 Wind Tunnel vents with internal channeling.

The Xara also gets the benefit of a P.O.V. visor to deflect the sun, rain, and twigs. The visor has a patented internal clutch system that allows for 15 degrees of vertical adjustment without the need for any tools; just give it a quick whack with your hand. And, if you'd rather not have it on at all, you can easily remove it without tools.

Giro's development of the Roc Loc 5 Fit System makes it possible to micro-adjust your helmet on the fly, with just one hand. Though other helmet manufacturers have similar adjustability options, none of them even come close to the weight savings that the Roc Loc system offers: it is almost 40% lighter than comparable systems. But, that's only on benefit of Roc Loc, it's also adjustable vertically as well as horizontally for an excellent fit.

The Giro Xara Women's Helmet comes in Small, Medium and Large. It is available in Matte Black, Matte Titanium, and Pearl White.


Built for off-trail riding but with the lightweight and streamlined design of a road cycling helmet, the Giro Xara™ is a top choice for women looking for maximum protection and performance.
