I bought the Black Lines version of this helmet and I love it. It's super comfy to wear and has great ventilation. I find the straps rub against my ears a bit but I guess I still need to tinker with the set up a little so that's up to me. Excellent price too so a winner all round. Ensure you order the right size though. I wasn't sure so had to pop into my local Halfords to check sizes of another Giro MTB helmet to be sure.
Very comfortable. The peak seems a bit flimsy but effective enough. Nice and lightweight and offers more protection than my old helmet (Giro Indicator) Head Loc system is an improvement as well. Great for the money.
Comfortable, well fitted with good adjustment. Good ventilation keeping my head cool when wearing. Added bonus of great colour! Purchased at a good price from Merlin. Win, win, win...
This is the best fitting helmet I've ever had although that's a completely individual thing depending on the size and shape of your bonce. The Rocloc retention system is great and having the 3 verticle adjustment positions makes the fit perfect. The adjustable visor doesn't feel particularly stiff so not sure how that will hold up in the long term. Colour matched straps look cool. Good price as well.
great helmet, another great price and fast delivery from merlin.
This is the best helmet I have ever owned in 20 years of mountain biking. Its also the second Hex I have bought in a year. Had to replace first one because last month I had an OTB and face planted, ended up in A&E having my top lip stitched back together. Hex was all cracked at the front but my head just had a slight bump on it. You could say that the Hex saved me from a lot more damage. Also on a lighter note the air vents on this helmet are just the best, kept me cool and non sweaty all last summer. Yeah you remember last summer! it was a very nice day......
Fantastic fit for my head and fels like a mighty fine replacement for my crash damaged Xen - better fit for my shape head than the Xar - also love the colour.
Really comfortable helmet and looks good. Giro helmets are class
Good light helmet
I have had many different helmets but the Hex is spot on for my head anyway!
This is the third of these that i have owned. It is comfortable, cool and gives good coverage to the back and sides of the head.
My only criticism applies to all helmets - it would be really useful if they came with a spare set of pads. I know they are theoretically available, but try and find the precise ones you want in stock anywhere!
very comfortable helmet decided to replace my old xen with the hex . Another quality product by giro .
Really nice fit for my big wide head, super comfy, looks good. The only downside is the pad directs sweat down my nose. Only a minor thing though. Great helmet.
Helmets are very subjective, the fit is far and away the most important detail, and if it doesn't fit you, then it's a no-star product, simple as.
The Hex DOES fit my head, very well. The new cradle holds the helmet to my head slightly better than the older model, but otherwise ventilation and coverage is as good as before. The previous model had done an excellent job of protecting my head for 4 years with the only issue being the (replaceable) padding finally starting to separate a few months ago. I only replaced the helmet as after 4 years, mostly living in the alps, it's probably had enough UV light and minor knocks. that and the new colours are a bit better than the old "any colour you want as long as it's black!"
Can't fault the helmet; it is a vast improvement over my old lid and the venting really does keep my head cool. I'm guessing some people might find it too cooling, but for me it's bang-on. Its grip on my (large) head is superb and I'm very pleased it is so secure.
Hopefully, I won't ever know how good the helmet is at its job, but I've great confidence in GIro. With regards to Merlin's delivery, it turned up promptly - just like all their orders!
Great piece of kit, does what it says on the tin. Nice design looks great and easy to adjust. Keeps your head cool and protected, comfortable to wear for longer rides.
Great looking helmet and after a bit of adjusting is very cumfy and merlin offered brilliant price and quick delievery
Very comfy, very good ventilation.... recommended.
bought for the mrs after she broke her one. good fit, light snd funky design. its all good!
Best price I could find on web including postage, fast delivery I live in Australia and arrived with in a week! Great helmet for all conditions lots of air flow to cool head down and comfy fit.
This Helmet is everything you'd expect from Giro, well made and super comfy. and at
Everything I hoped it would be. Looks great and most important of all fit is perfect. Easy dial adjustment on rear. Would recommend both the helmet and also Merlin for the price and service.
Good helmet with a good fit. Rocloc easy to adjust as usual and in a funky blue colour! Merlin top service getting this swapped from M to L (old Giro helmet was medium, so either Giro's fit has changed or my head is swelling!).
Great helmet, really good fit, and great ventilation
