Giro helmets stand above the rest. Their safety makes them essential, while their comfort and style makes them legendary. Giro satisfies every cyclist, too, with models designed for everything from your daily commute to pro-level racing. However and wherever you ride, Giro has you covered!
The first Giro, the first truly light and comfortable helmet, was developed in 1985 in a garage. Sales quickly boomed, and production had to expand into a neighbor’s garage. Then, in 1989, Greg LeMond won the Tour de France sporting a Giro Aerohead. Since those early days Giro’s revolutionary designs have continued leading to today’s cutting-edge Giros that have graced podiums in all levels of cycling.
Every element has been carefully considered and perfected to enhance your riding. From the highest-quality materials, to matchless aesthetics, to the ultimate sensation of Giro’s Super Fit sizing and Wind Tunnel ventilation, every detail of a Giro helmet is distinct and special.
Giro is a brand born from innovation and creativity. A company rooted in function and style. A group that lives to rethink and redefine products to be on the edge of inspired design. A creator of products that help you feel good and perform at your best. Come by our store to see all our Giros and try some on, too. We think you’ll be as impressed as we are!
It’s your brain. Treat it right. Cannondale is at again, re-envisioning a vital piece of cycling technology: the helmet. How do we do it? Easy. We wear helmets. Every day. Every Ride. Consequently, we think about helmets – in the saddle, at our desks, in bed. And now, we’re designing them to to help create the perfect ride.
1. DUAL DENSITY EPS TECHNOLOGY
Cannondale’s helmet designers took a cue from car manufacturers when building our revolutionary, cone-shaped impact-absorbing zones into our helmets. We call these zones Peak Protection. The two-layered, co-molded EPS foam in our helmets employ high- and low-density foam zones that disperse and redirect the force of an impact.
2. EXOSKELETON REINFORCEMENTS
Get bigger venting, improved airflow, and zero loss of protection. Cannondale’s SI ALLOY REINFORCMENT bridges span critical intersections to simultaneously boost helmet strength and cool factor.
3. EMBEDDED CHASSIS
Embedded into every CANNONDALE HELMET is a nylon chassis that helps maintain integrity in the case of a crash. The benefits are superior strength, superior ventilation, superior protection – while still looking beautiful.
4. POLYCARBONATE OUTER SHELL
Integrity. That’s a word few helmet makers actually use, but one that’s at the core of Cannondale. We fuse the EPS Foam with the vacuum-formed shell, creating an integrated, one-piece helmet that has the structural integrity serious riders demand.
The result is a helmet that’s 12% lighter and meets CPSC safety standards.
