Giro Xar MTB Helmet offers all the features you’ve come to expect from Giro’s
top-level trail-riding helmets—P.O.V.™ adjustable visor; In-mold composition
with EPS foam and polycarbonate shell; Roll Cage™ reinforcement—but the XAR
heralds a new era of performance, comfort and style. At the heart of this helmet
you’ll find 17 Wind Tunnel™ vents as well as optimized internal channeling, and
the visor is vented to increase airflow. Breathability on the XAR is incredible;
there’s never been a lid this breathable on dirt. Even the padding is
extraordinary thanks in part to X-Static fabric.
In-Mold Construction – The In-mold construction process
permanently fuses a light-yet-durable outer shell with the helmet’s
impact-absorbing EPS foam liner, enhancing the strength of both parts, This
fusion 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 helmets with shells that are fastened or adhered to the liner.
Super Fit Engineering
– Giro’s proprietary Super Fit sizing system is based on “human scale factors”
data and over 20 years of hand-crafting helmets to fit the best bike riders in
the world. By creating helmets in 3 sizes to fit snugly and securely while also
matching the human body’s form, Giro’s Super Fit sizes comfortably fit up to 98%
of the world’s population, yet look (and fit) like they are custom made just for
Roc Loc 5 Fit System
– This ground breaking fit system provides unmatched comfort, stability and
adjustability and weight savings. In addition to enhancing the fit and comfort
of helmets, Roc Loc 5 allows you to easily custom tune the fit tension and the
fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds using a single hand. And it’s almost 40%
lighter than comparable systems too, making it the ultimate in skull-hugging
– X-Static padding contains a fiber made with layers of pure silver that is
permanently bonded to the surface of the fabric. Silver has 100% natural
anti-microbial performance that helps to reduce odor and regulate heat, so your
helmet stays fresh and comfortable naturally.
Roll Cage Reinforcement – Roll Cage is a light-yet-tough
web of reinforcement invisibly molded inside a helmet’s EPS foam liner. It helps
the helmet to hold together under impact, and provides an extra measure of
strength and integrity that you’ll never notice…unless you need it.
– 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.
They’re also easily removed without tools.
Wind Tunnel Ventilation – Giro helmets are
developed utilizing their proprietary Wind Tunnel ventilation system. This
elaborate design combines active vents in the helmet’s shell with exhaust
channels inside the helmet that thrust fresh, cool air over and around the
rider’s head while forcing heat and stable air out. It’s the most effective
cooling system avaliable and a difference you can feel every time you ride.
