Product Info

The insanely lightweight Giro Montane Helmet bridges the gap between their lightest snow helmets and their famous bike helmets, using the featherweight but stable Roc Loc® 5 adjustment system in combination with Super Cool™ and Stack Venting and Thermostat™ control. The Montane comes with its own carabiner and Trip Clip for attaching the helmet to your pack while you're skinning or booting uphill.

Product Details

Construction

In-Mold ConstructionIn-Mold Construction fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet's impact-absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows for better ventilation systems, making in-mold helmets lighter and cooler than traditional helmets.

Ventilation

Stack Vent™Stack Vent™ aligns the center top vent of the helmet with the center vent of your goggles to help eliminate fogging while maintaining total helmet and goggle integration.

Super Cool™ Vents12 Super Cool™ vents pull cool, fresh air into the helmet while pushing heat and stale air out.

Thermostat Control Adjustable VentingThermostat™ ventilation control allows you to custom tune the airflow through your helmet instantly with a simple, low profile button on the outside of the helmet.

Adjustability

Roc Loc® 5 Fit SystemThis groundbreaking fit system provides unmatched comfort, stability, adjustability and weight savings. Roc Loc® 5 allows you to easily custom tune the fit tension and the fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds using a single hand. And it's almost 40% lighter than comparable systems too, making it the ultimate skull-hugging luxury.

I bought this helmet two years ago and it is the best hemet I have ever had. I will never buy a hardshell helmet again. It i the toughest helmet I have ever owned. I put my helmets through some serious abuse (to the point that my last helmet, a hardshell came apart). Skiing through tris is not able to scratch it and it does not dent. The integrated GoPro mount works great: it gets a great shot is fairly comfortable. Realistically, you are going to feel it when you mount a heavy camera to the front of your helmet, not matter how good it is, but that being said, the helmet does a great job staying on and not wobbling even with the GoPro mounted. Without the mount, the helmet is extremely light, well ventilated, very warm when you need it to be. The RocLoc fit system is perfect! On the back, the goggle strap has a tab on the snap that folds up to both keep ice from getting in and stopping it from freezing, and it also keeps the tab from flapping around. This shows you just how well made and thought through this product is. I cannot say enough good stuff about this product.

      Comments about Giro Montane Helmet:

      This helmet is very light & adjustable.
      the New adjustable dial is a bit too small to adjust with gloves on, though.
      The shell is a bit too thin (in my opinion), so easily dented.

          Comments about Giro Montane Helmet:

          This is my first helmet and I plan to use it during the upcoming ski season. I did about an hour or two of research and found that this one had the best value. I found others that received very positive reviews, but they were either not as good of a deal or didn't offer the features I was looking for. EVO turned out to offer the best price for this helmet as well as the most convenient return policy, which I thought was especially useful in case it didn't fit right. All in all, I'm glad I made the purchase and I'll discover just how much I like it this winter.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was very quick and the helmet arrived in new condition without any shipping damage.

              I do like this helmet, got the tank color, which stands out over all the gray and black ones that people have. Love the Roc Loc 5 fit system and the construction of helmet is top notch. I also like being able to slip my skullcandy earphones into the earpads, my only gripe is the chin strap pad needs one extra strap toward the clip, it doesn't want to stay in place, even knowing this before hand I would still buy it again.

                    Comments about Giro Montane Helmet:

                    Skied with this helmet 5 days so far, in snow, sleet, rain, and gusting winds. Temps ranged from high 20s to mid 30s. Never had any problems with my goggles fogging up thanks to the stack vent design. The helmet fits me well, and it was simple to dial in a stable fit. Construction seems solid enough, I have not crash tested it yet! Designed as backcountry helmet, be aware that for on piste skiing it's much cooler than other helmets I've had. With mild temperatures and vents closed, I still opted to wear a beanie underneath to provide some warmth. Figure this as a plus for its intended use.

                    Comments about Giro Montane Helmet:

                    One of the best - if not the best helmets - I have ever used. Giro does a great job of making this a very light weight, but feature rich helmet. This helmet weighs in at a mere 2 oz more than a Smith Maze, but has vents you can open and close without having to take the helmet off, custom rear fit adjustments, and the best is the vertical fit adjustment.

                    The vertical fit allows you to adjust how the helmet interacts with your goggles - you can actually make the goggles sit lower or higher on your face, and still eliminate gapper gap.

                    I have used this helmet in 30°+ temps all the way down to single digits. No need for anything else

                    Comments about Giro Montane Helmet:

                    Bought this during a cyber monday sale. It's very lightweight (I forget it's on my head all day). It keeps me warm without a beanie underneath (although it could fit one). And the adjustable vents are actually more helpful than I thought they'd be. At the beginning of the day they're always closed, but I open them up when I start hitting a few runs back to back. It gets a little scratched if you don't have a bag or something to put it in, but I don't really care about how new it looks so I just throw it on top of my gear. It fits on the small side so I got a large even though I'm right in the gap between M and L.

                          Great product, light weight with adjustable features. Wish the designs were a little more creative and it came with a bag like my wife's sheer helmet which will stop it from getting scratches when traveling overseas

                            Sizing is not accurate- fits much smaller
