The Giro Aerohead has a simple sales pitch - it's the fastest Giro helmet ever. Giro pioneered the aerodynamic helmet category back in 1985 with the original Advantage, and now after more than 3 decades of improvement and refinement, the result is the Giro Aerohead.
The Giro Aerohead, to be effective, has to perform in real-world scenarios. It was designed and tested to be effective for riders that ride head up and for riders that ride head down. And before its release, it had to be able to perform in multiple wind yaws (angles) - not just a perfect 0 yaw scenario.
The result is a helmet that has already been a part of multiple record setting time trial events, and a helmet that is as fast as any a triathlete or time-trial cyclist can wear.
One of the most noticeable features of the Aerohead helmet is its ZEISS Optics wrap-around, magnetically attached eye shield. It provides an impressive field of view, excellent optics, and convenient storage options when placed in the "flipped up" position.
An additional benefit of the large visor is that overall balance of the helmet feels pretty even and comfortable when you're riding, unlike many long-tail aero helmets that struggle with weight balance. Multiple vents and internal channeling also enhance comfort and provide effective ventilation to help keep your head cool during hard efforts and warmer days.
Like other Giro helmets, it features the Roc Loc Air fit system, ensuring a fit similar to other Giro helmets. Our experience has been that the Giro Aerohead fits true to size.
The Giro Aerohead utilizes MIPS technology, which stands for Multi Directional Impact Protection System, to help the helmet perform its primary function - keeping you safe in case of impact. This system reduces friction and rotational impact forces using a liner that moves between the head and the helmet shell. A polycarbonate shell also provides additional protection.
With the release of the Giro Aerohead, Giro has taken aero helmet technology to a new level and should be in consideration for anyone looking to squeeze as much speed as possible out of raceday.
