Product Info

Giro Decade Helmet - Women's 2012: Your everyday run of the mill helmets are usually made out of sugar, spice and everything nice. Giro “mistakenly” added in chemical X and created the Giro Decade Helmet. Featuring the legendary Form™ Fit system and the new Weatherstrip™ Vent Shield which replaces hard to keep track of vent plugs, the Giro Decade Helmet offers top notch performance, style and fit.

Product Details

Vents

15 Super Cool™ vents that pull cool, fresh air into the helmet while pushing heat and stale air out

Weatherstrip™ vent shields work to seal off vents in extremely cold conditions. A Hook-and-Loop Fastener tab secures the shield when not in use to allow proper ventilation. Simply open the Hook-and-Loop Fastener tab to unroll the shield over its corresponding vent

Stack Vent™ developed based on research showing warm air can cause fogging exhausts from the center top vent of the goggle. Aligning the Stack Vent™ in the helmet with the center vent of your goggles helps to keep them clear and fog free while maintaining total helmet and goggle integration.

Goggle Compatibility

Goggle compatible

Compatible with all aftermarket TuneUps systems

Adjustability

Removable Earpads

Adjustable Strap

In Form™ Fit SystemDial in a custom fit in seconds. An ergo-friendly dial at the base of the helmet provides up to 6cm of adjustment and enhanced stability while the vertical tuning feature accommodates different goggles and head shapes for a custom fit, free of gaper gap.

Additional Features

In-Mold construction fuses a tough polycarbonate shell with the helmet’s impact-absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows Giro to sculpt better ventilation systems, so In-Mold helmets can be lighter and cooler than traditional helmets.

  • Helmet Style: Half Shell
  • Helmet Venting: Venting

So here's the thing. I bought this helmet to use while riding my bike, and I was so excited to get it because it had excellent reviews and looked so much more stylish than any other bike helmet out there. I was surprised to find that it isn't a bike helmet at all-it's a ski helmet! It was never specified as such on the website! I don't do much skii-ing and so maybe to other people that much would be obvious. But to me anyway it looked pretty structurally indistinguishable from any other normal bike helmet.

I still use for riding, even though the pamplet that came with it says it isn't designed for that. It's the same kind of hard plastic-coated styrofoam in other bike helmets, though. It's going to be fantastic this winter when it gets cold up here in Boston, but during the summer, it sure makes your head sweaty! So buyer beware of that.

In all other areas-style and comfort, it's excellent. Very sturdy. I'm a big fan of the gear-system that tightens the helmet around your head in addition to the chin straps. Cozy black faux-fur lined. I couldn't imagine a better helmet for winter sports. All in all, a secure and jazzy helmet! If only the fur lining were removable, it would be perfect for me...

I found this helmet to be really easy to adjust, comfortable and stylish. I also like that it provides plenty of ventilation. Even though it fit really well, the surrounding helmet looked really big, but when you consider what it's protecting it shouldn't be much of an issue. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.

    Comments about Giro Decade Helmet - Women's:

    The helment itself is well built, light weight, and should be comfortable if sized up when approaching size upper bound. Bought this for my wife. Her head measurement (correcly measured and with testing on other brands too) falls within size S (about 1.5 cm below upper bound). However, the Giro is shaped more narrow and long than the other brands, causing the sides to pinch down on her head while the front and back still have room to spare. Sizing up to M will make it fit, though will create maybe too much room at front and end. Had to return and get a Smith which is rounder and fits better. So, do take into consideration of your head shape, as well as circumference.

            My boyfriend gave this to me and couldn't be any happier. It's a perfect fit and looks cool too. As a beginner snowboarder, I was a natural at falling :). It probably prevented a head injury when I took a bad spill and whiplashed the back of my head into an icy spot.

              Comments about Giro Decade Helmet - Women's:

              I recently purchased this for a Cub Scout trip snow tubing at a local mountain. Initially, I wasn't looking forward to wearing it but we had made a family decision to wear helmets (my husband is on blood thinners) so not wearing one wasn't an option. Once we arrived at the tubing park I was glad I had a helmet because every surface was ice. This helmet fit well, was more comfortable than wearing a winter hat, warm, and made me feel safe. The ear flaps are covered in soft fleece as is the chin strap. The small fit me perfectly but I had tried on other Giro helmets at a store so I knew what size I was looking for before I ordered. I plan on using this helmet in the future instead of a hat while ice skating, skiing, and other snow tube trips. It is truly that comfortable!

                Love this helmet. Great fit. Has probably saved a number of brain cells from certain death as I tend to forget to look where I'm going. Cool pattern on the outside. Goggle clip works great.

                              I like it because the helmet is able to be adjustable when I want to wear a small cap under it or loosen when not. I like how my goggles fit nicely under the front of the helmet. Awesome graphics and colors on the back of the helmet for a women. Bottom line Giro knows how to make a great helmet!

                              This helmet is by far the best fitting helmet I have ever owned! The adjustability of this helmet makes for a snug fit that I can trust, yet it is extremely comfortable and warm--even on the icy/windy days on the slopes. I hope to never need another helmet again... and when I do, I plan to purchase this exact one again!!!!

                                This helmet is comfortable and very cozy. I like the removable earflaps, they're soft and keep my ears warm. It seems pretty substantial, but I hope I never have to use it for its intended purpose. Point of vanity- I took the helmet off after wearing it for about 6 hours, my hair looked great. I would buy this helmet again if I needed to.
