The Giro Athlon MTB Helmet was developed with a single purpose in mind—XC
racing. This helmet combines 23 generous Wind Tunnel vents plus smooth style, a
compact shape, minimal weight, and an updated, low profile P.O.V. visor. You’re
not going to find a better performing, more comfortable, competition-specific
MTB helmet. The Athlon will keep you on top, whether it’s a world cup XC, a
24-hour race, a local short track or a high speed Super D. At the very least,
you’ll look good trying.
- In-mold construction fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet’s
impact-absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allowed Giro to sculpt better
ventilation systems, so In-mold helmets can be lighter and cooler than
Wind Tunnel Ventilation
- Giro helmets are developed utilizing their proprietary Wind Tunnel™
ventilation system, which combines active vents with internal exhaust channels
that thrust cool, fresh air over and around the rider’s head-while forcing heat
and stale air out. This significant increase in air channeling makes a
difference that riders will immediately feel and appreciate.
- Point Of View visors are anchored by a patented internal clutch mechanism that
allows 15-degrees of tool-free, on-the-fly vertical adjustment while preventing
the visor from rattling and coming loose over rough and technical terrain.
- Roll Cage reinforcement is a tough web of DuPont ® Nylon® molded inside a
helmet’s EPS foam liner. It provides an extra measure of strength and integrity
that you’ll never notice…unless you need it.

- Giro’s newest retention system packs game-changing technology into a miniscule
package. Adjusting fit tension and vertical position has never been easier or
more comfortable. Simply twist the dial for a tighter feel on rough terrain,
then back it off a notch and relax across the flats or a warm climb.
