Cycling helmets GIRO – ideal equipment for sports cyclists
New thoughts, new forms, newly defined variety are included in the production list of bike helmets in the GIRO company and are linked to a powerful security aspect. The GIRO bike helmet manufacturer develops cycling helmets which are adapted to the different requirements of a sports cyclist in their use. Thus, for example, a sport helmet needs equipping with an optimal ventilation system with snap-fit visor, replaceable and washable padding. A timed riding helmet beyond that, based on its high aerodynamics, is developed in the wind tunnel and under optimum adaptation systems. For downhill riders there are full-visor helmets with a carbon outer shell, so that the bike helmet is extra light and extremely robust. Child's bike helmets are provided with various setting-adjustment possibilities, so that the high-quality helmet can adapt to the head shape.
