The XAR offers all the features youâ€™ve come to expect from Giroâ€™s top-level trail-riding helmetsâ€”P.O.V.â„¢ adjustable visor; In-mold composition with EPS foam and polycarbonate shell; Roll Cageâ„¢ reinforcementâ€”but the XAR heralds a new era of performance, comfort and style. At the heart of this helmet youâ€™ll find 17 Wind Tunnelâ„¢ vents as well as optimized internal channelling, and the visor is vented to increase airflow. Breathability on the XAR is incredible; thereâ€™s never been a lid this breathable on dirt. Even the padding is extraordinary thanks in part to X-Static fabric.

Roc Loc 5
After more than two-years of development, Giro introduces Roc Loc 5. This groundbreaking fit system provides an entirely unique user experience with an unmatched level of comfort, stability, adjustability and weight savings.With Roc Loc 5, you can easily dial-in both fit tension and adjust vertical position with a single hand. Just 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. Even with these remarkable features, Roc Loc 5 is still nearly 40-percent lighter than its popular predecessor, Roc Loc 4.
The heart of Roc Loc 5 is this ratcheting, micro-adjusting dial. A simple, two-finger twist of the Micro Dial opens or closes the retention system and each click is audible.
Itâ€™s never been easier to change vertical positions and fine-tune fit. We incorporated a three-position bracket that features 15-millimeters of up/down movement. Like the Micro Dial, this system can be adjusted without removing the helmet. Carefully-crafted ergonomic arms are shaped to be as comfortable as possible, yet work flawlessly with Giro eyewear (what we call Super Fit engineering).
These two panels are designed to firmly grasp the back of your head while comfortably cradling the occipital lobe.
With Roc Loc 5, your helmet straps are always right where you need them. Not to mention this strap basket brings a new level of comfort.
Giro is a world leader in high performance protective equipment, they offer some of the lightest and technologically advanced helmets on the market for all levels and styles of riding. With over 30 years-experience, the California based company has shaped the industry, not just in their helmets but also with their shoes and apparel.
