If you're going to ride in town, doing your daily commute, why not abandon the roadie influenced helmet and get one that is more subdued and less threatening to the natives in your area. The Giro Section helmet could be an integral part of your high-performance civilian styled bike wear.
Though the Section looks like a muted version of a standard skate helmet, it is a bit different. It has an expanded polystyrene liner like their other road and mountain helmets and uses an in-molded polycarbonate shell to add toughness and abrasion resistance without adding significant weight. The limited number of vents, it has eight, lends strength so it is a great helmet even if your urban riding is geared more towards seeking out the best wallrides and stair gaps on your way to the dirt jumps just outside of town. For all-mountain riders, the Section works great for all-day adventures, because it's lighter than a standard ABS-shelled helmet of this style. It's designed to be used with Giro's line of goggles so you'll know that they'll always fit great in dusty conditions.
The Giro Section helmet comes in small, medium, and large and is available in three colors -- Matte Black, Matte Gold Transparent, and White/Gold.
Ventilation is a prime aspect of the Giro Section Bike Helmet, ventilation that keeps the sweat droplets out of your face and off of your neck so you don't have to let go of what you are doing to take care of it and so you will stay cool. You're very hip Giro Helmet will protect you from head injuries with its long lasting outer shell and inner foam lining so you can reach your highest performance expectations while riding your bike without letting the fear of a little tumble stand in your way.
I won't hold anything back...I have a small pixie head and face, and this helmet fits me very well without looking like a giant helmet on an ants head! LOL. Seriously, this helmet fits nice and snug with no pressure points. The strap system allows plenty of room for adjustment and when tightened on it sits in a non-choking position. I love this helmet and am ecstatic to have more protection over my head! As an aside, the color and pattern is unique and fun. This is a well made and designed helmet. My bike visor does fit under for when I'd like to block the rays. I use the helmet for MTB riding and horseback-riding. I love the idea of deeper and heavier protection, especially over the cerebellum. Buy it, be safe!
I bought this last year for longboarding, and have used it for biking a little bit this year. With it being light it doesn't give me headaches like other helmets do, and with it being well ventilated it helps keep you cooler than most helmets. Fortunately I haven't taken any falls on it yet, but I've had a lot of other Giro helmets for various sports and they have all held up to the abuse I dish out so this one will live up to the Giro name.
Bottom line: Cool, light, durable, and most of all VERY comfortable.
I got the White/gold colorway and it's a great helmet. I have never bought a bike helmet and I was a little nervous because I wear a 7 3/4 size hat (I have a big melon). This helmet in a large fit perfect! I had to remove one of the pads from the back, but it fits very comfortable. I got the white/gold version because I figured white would help reflect the sun and absorb less heat keeping things cooler during rides.
I use this helmet for skating and I've taken some hard hits on pavement with this helmet, smashing a big flat spot on it, and it protected me very well. Its comfortable, light, the liners are easy to adjust size with and also are easy to remove and attach. They stay attached well.
The only complaint I have is this helmet dents very easily its purely cosmetic though.
Bought this as a bike helmet for my four year old son. He loves it. It fits well and is lightweight. There are three sets of removable foam strips which allows a lot of versatility in sizing it right. Compared this to the POC Receptor and the POC was quite a bit heavier. Thrilled with yet another great Giro product.
I love this helmet for my two boys. This helmet offers great protection and the "coolness" that they desire.
They specifically picked out the Green Creatures design. When it arrived we discovered female nudity on the back of the helmet. Probably not the best idea for a 6 and 7 year old.
We needed to cover the girl with a goat sticker!
Bought one for myself and one for my daughter, This helmet is cool and comfy at the right price, Backcountry customer service ppl rock and they were fast getting the helmets to us as well, def would and have sent ppl this way for awesome products and superb customer service ! Go Backcountry ! Thanks.
I've been using this lid for rides around town and for mountain biking with friends. The fit seemed a bit large at first, but Giro thoughtfully included a number of replacement inner pads. One change the fit either to make it tighter or looser. For the price, it can't be beat.
I am very pleased with the fit and comfort of the helmet. It is well constructed. The helmet gives me confidence I am protected in the event of a fall/crash. As a neruosurgeon, I would recommend this helmet to anyone.
Great helmet for the price. Very light and it come's with 2 extra replacement pads for the inside. The helmet is a little on the warm side but it makes for a great fall or winter helmet.
