Sizing Information for Giro Helmets:

Giro Helmet Sizing Chart

I have read mixed reviews about this helmet, so I was reluctant about buy it, however at clearance price I thought it was a good deal to give it a try. I was previously using a 2014 black Specialized echelon 2, so my impressions are: -Looks good on head, sits low, so it doesn't look awkward on my Asian head/face. Also like the rear portion of the helmet. - It is much lighter than the echelon, you can clearly feel it. - Ventilation is slightly worse, specially when you look down, there is no wind on top of your head. Forehead ventilation is not good either. - Overall finishing is really poor, worst than the much cheaper echelon. - I cannot say about the aero proprieties, because I dont have an wind tunnel, however, my times on Strava got slightly better. On a flat segment I always run with headwind, I was averaging 28km/h, however with the helmet I could increase +1 or +2 km/h with no perceived extra effort.
