Giro Xar Helmet
The Giro Xar is Giro's latest offering to replace the extremely popular Xen which has been protecting the heads of mountain bikers for several years. In 2003, Giro changed the look of freeride mountain biking with the Xen. With its muscular shape, increased rear coverage and skate-punk attitude, the Xen was the first helmet of its kind. A lot has changed since then. The same riders that used to focus on big hucks and airtime are now the ones crushing long climbs and covering vast distances to get to the best descents. To fill these specific needs, Giro introduced the excellent Xar.
Carving turns. Shredding rough descents. Attacking climbs. All Mountain riding is all about conquering the elements with speed and efficiency. Giro’s new Xar mountain bike helmet is the perfect helmet to compliment this rapidly-evolving category. The XAR offers all the features you've come to expect from Giro's top-level trail-riding helmets - P.O.V.TM adjustable visor; In-mold composition with EPS foam and polycarbonate shell; Roll CageTM reinforcement - but the XAR mtb helmet heralds a new era of performance, comfort and style. At the heart of this mens cycling helmet you'll find 17 Wind Tunnel vents as well as optimised internal channelling, and the visor is vented to increase airflow. Breathability on the XAR is incredible; there's never been a lid this breathable on dirt. Even the padding is extraordinary thanks in part to X-Static fabric.
