Giro, based in Scotts Valley, California, is a world leader in cycling helmets as well as high-performance protective gear and accessories for action sports. Their mission is to create cycling helmets of with innovative design and advanced technology that allow the cyclist to improve their performance thanks to their perfect fit, reduced weight and optimal ventilation, in addition to having a careful design. Giro helmets are developed using the patented Wind Tunnel ventilation system, which combines active ventilation with internal exhaust channels that cool the cyclist by allowing air to flow smoothly over and around the head. The Giro helmets incorporate the Roc Loc 5 fit system. This fit system offers a high level of comfort, stability and adaptability, as well as a reduced weight. Used in top-end Giro helmets, the Roc Loc 5 system is characterised by having a minimalist design, being very ergonomic, having a very intuitive fit and achieving a weight reduction of 40% compared to its predecessor. All you have to do is remove the Giro helmet equipped with the Roc Loc 5 system from the box, put it on your head and turn the wheel to adjust the tension, and you can start pedaling. It is the system that provides the best fit, safety and greater lightness on the market for both road and mountain. This system is used in Giro Ionos, Giro Atmos, Giro Saros, Giro Athlon and in the Xar, Xen and Hex helmets, among other styles. The heart of the Roc Loc 5 is a micro-adjustable wheel that can be easily adjusted with two fingers. Some audible clicks indicate that the helmet is being tightened or loosening. Another feature of the Roc Loc 5 system is the vertical adjustment in 3 positions that allows a precise adjustment of up to 15mm. up and down. Best of all, these adjustments can be made easily without the need to remove the helmet. And another improvement added to the effectiveness of the Roc Loc 5 is that the rear straps pass through the arms of the fit system which helps it adapt better to the cyclist's head and ensures that the straps are always in the correct position . Giro Helmets are used by the most important cycling figures such as Lance Armstrong, Alberto Contador or Cadel Evans and by the main UCI ProTour teams.
