Giro Montaro MIPS MTB Helmet
From long climbs to rowdy, technical descents, the Montaro™ MIPS helmet inspires your ride no matter where the trail takes you. Its compact shape offers deep, confident coverage, and the Roc Loc® Air fit system boosts ventilation while improving fit. In addition to this helmet’s already impressive cooling power, it’s outfitted with hydrophilic, anti-microbial pads that can absorb up to ten-times their weight in sweat.
Giro designed the Montaro MIPS to have full goggle integration, with strap grippers on the back of the helmet, and a P.O.V. Plus™visor that allows you to lift the visor and place your goggles on the front of the helmet. Yet another great feature is the full camera mount integration – a clever break-away interface for your favorite light or camera.
  • P.O.V Plus™ visor adjustment
  • Hydropholic, X static® anti-microbial padding
  • Full camera mount integration with breakaway feature
  • Full goggle integration with strap grippers
  • MIPS equipped
  • Full wrap in-mold

These Helmets are certified with a European CE EN1078 standard. This is a European standard and although the helmet is perfectly safe to use, specific countries may have their own certification which is legally required if you intend to wear the helmet recreationally or in a competitive racing environment. If you are unsure, please check your specific country requirements and check with the manufacturer to see if the helmet has received any additional certification.

Giro Helmet Sizing Chart

Mr Williamsvery smart & comfortable all day
MartinSuper happy. After a lot of research on helmets I decided on the Montaro and I’m very very happy with choice. Fits amazing and looks great. Looks better than expected.
Mr WarringtonGreat look fast delivery fits great 👍
Mr HawkridgeNice and sturdy on the head, tidy trail styling and lots of vents keep you cool. I can’t tell it’s there on the hills! Easy & efficient adjustment wheel at the back. Overall really smart design, compact and doesn’t look overly wide or tall like some other brands (ie Met). A great replacement for my Giro Hex which split in 4 places and saved my life in a recent accident!
RichardA combination of the excellent fit and good ventilation made buying my second Montaro an easy choice when the previous one was due for replacement.
Mr JohnstoneLight and well ventilated helmet,MIPS protection an added bonus
Kath EckersleyQuality helmet bought for the Missus - great fit, good levels of protection - removable Go-Pro mount a bonus
AnthonyLightweight, well ventilated and well fitting helmet. Looks good also. Would recommend.
DavidThis Giro MTB Helmet, surpasses all your expectations, it is light, but really well made. The fits is perfect and the MIPS system offers extra protection as well as being ultra stylish. Put this with great Merlin pricing it’s a winner everyday. I would highly recommend this helmet, but I’m a big Giro fan, I wouldn’t wear any other cycling helmet, why would you, only wear the best.
Mr CooksonAwesome helmet, really happy with the quality as fits perfect with adjustment options to make it how you want it on your head. Big fan of the Mips as it is a great feature. Also, great customer service from Merlin Cycles with fast delivery and great packaging keeping the product safe! Will be shopping again soon with you guys! Thanks again!
Mr ThomsonExcellent fit, light & comfortable. The sweatband only partially keeps the sweat from my face, however. If you sweat a lot, this might not be the helmet for you.
Mr CrooksGood helmet. Light and easy to attach chin strap. Adjustable peak is also a nice feature. Good price for a decent Mips helmet.
Mr EvansVery nice fit and finish. Externally smaller than I expected - which is a big plus in my book.
Mr ConwayVery good looking quality helmet, light weight and plenty of ventilation,fits snugly with very little movement,
KrisGreat helmet light and comfortable
cycle crazyLove this new helmet, fits like a glove the peak feature is really useful
Mr KanagendraA very comfortable helmet - much better than the Giro Xar I bought a few years ago to replace a well used Giro Xen. Didn't take long to get used to the MIPS insert. Great service & price from Merlin
martinI decided I needed a helmet with a light/go pro attachment feature for night riding. Having researched numerous helmets, the Giro Montaro popped up on Merlins website at a super keen price. This is a fantastic helmet & holds it's own as Giro's premium trail/Enduro helmet. It's easy to see why, great fit, easy adjustment, plenty of vents to keep you cool, great design, cool looking, great fit, adjustable peak, light/go pro fitment, great colours oh & did I mention it comes with MIPS included for proper brain protection.
RonanM in blue fits perfectly, I'm 57cm, although a bit warm for my liking, but will be good for winter
Mr WhiteWas originally looking at the Chronicle helmet but this was a step up. Its finished off nicely with added details that the Chronicle didn`t have, but has a similar shape. Both helmets sit lower at the back offering better protection which is what I wanted. And at a good price from Merlin. Struggled to find a good fitting helmet for my long head (63.5). The Giros seem to fit the best.
AdamThis is a brilliant helmet, I spent several weeks looking for the right helmet with safety and comfort in mind, this ticks all the boxes, fits my head perfectly. Highly recommended. As for delivery very fast and good packaging. PS check the box before re-cycling as the camera\torch attachment is hidden in the box.
GaborWell built premium quality helmet for Trail/XC. Light, well ventilated, easy to adjust, super comfy with a bit difficult to use camera mount (other brands have better solutions).
Mr PatersonGreat helmet, fits like a glove and the Mips system makes this helmet extremely comfortable.
Mr CaversGreat bright helmet. Fits well and is comfortable all day long. I have always liked Giro helmets, they seem to fit my head shape. Great ventilation keeping me cool when working hard. Well worth the cost.
Mr BignoldGreat helmet, very comfy. Replaces my trusty Giro Xar helmet. I like the visor which feels rigid and not floppy like some visors. Great service from Merlin as always!
