Giro Lifetime Warranty:Yes, you read correctly. Giro stands by their product and will warranty any manufacturer's defects for the lifespan of the product. Pretty sweet deal, especially for goggles and helmets.
GoPro Hardware not included:The GoPro mount that comes with this helmet does NOT include the main screw and bolt you need to secure your GoPro to the mount. This piece comes with your GoPro and is used with most all mounts on the market today.
Safety Standards:ASTM F-2040-00: Meets the standard specifications of protective headgear for snowsports
CE EN 1077:This is a European standard that has performed testing on these helmets to ensure they function as designed, and that they exceed the minimum standards for snow sports. In other words, they dropped heavy objects on the helmets, and they didn't break.
Goggle clip:Two lateral guides that keep the goggles in place, and doesn't interfere with the goggle adjustment clips.
Stack Vent:Our Stack Vent was developed based on research showing the majority of the warm air that 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.
Audio Compatible:This helmet is compatible with all aftermarket Giro Soundsystems. Unsnap the liner and drop the headphones in, its that simple!
Hybrid Construction:This unique construction features the best of both In-Mold and Hard-Shell constructions. The primary In-Mold construction makes the helmet incredibly light, while the secondary Hard-Shell upper allows for more advanced Active Matrix Venting and increased durability.
MIPS Helmet Technology:MIPS - Multi-Directional Impact Protection System MIPS is a step forward in helmet design. There are three main components to a MIPS-equipped helmet: the interior foam liner, the Low Friction Liner and an elastomeric attachment system between them. In an angled impact, the elastomeric attachment system stretches to allow the foam liner to rotate independently around your head. The goal of this technology is to further reduce rotational forces.
In-Form Fit System:The In Form Fit system makes it easy to dial in a custom fit in seconds - even with gloves on. 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.
Fidlock Buckle Closure:The pinch-free, one-handed Fidlock Magnectic Snap helmet buckle combines the advantages of two fastening concepts in a completely new way. Strong magnets make it easy to open and close while a secure snap functionality ensures a continuously high locking force.
Needed to replace my Giro helmet that was close to 20 years old. This one fits perfectly, just like the old one. So far had no issues with foggy glasses (I wear prescription glasses underneath ski goggles).
About 2 years ago I bought this same helmet for my son. He loves it! Super comfortable and he loves the Go-Pro mount and has some wireless earphones he put into the ear flaps. It works great.
This year, I finally wised up and bought myself a helmet. I saw this Giro Zone on sale from Level9 and instantly snapped it up (matte black, Medium for fifty five bucks!). It was much less than the sale price of the one I bought my son. It arrived ahead of schedule and in perfect shape. The helmet is awesome! i just got back from a week in Big Sky. I wore the helmet 7 hours a day for 6 days straight and I honestly forgot I was wearing it. It fit great! Vents work perfectly for adjusting to cooler and warmer weather (we had some days in the single digits and some days in the 40s and I was always comfortable).
My head measures 58 cm and I thought about going with a large to make room for a hat underneath, but I had the benefit of trying my son's on and I felt the medium was a better fit. I'm glad I did. The helmet did loosen up a little (just a little) over the first week of wearing it. Now, I'm right in the middle of the adjustment range of the dial and have a little room for a thin beanie, if I wanted one (although I don't think I'll need one, given how warm it kept me at 7-9 degree F with wind).
Amazing fit, super lightweight and comfortable. No complaints!
I am very pleased with the helmet
