Looks Good and Fits Great

This replaces an older non-MIPS Giro Atmos where the Roc Loc feature snapped. This new Aether Spherical MIPS (size M) has excellent fit, and several different types of convenient fit adjustments to really dial it in. Easily accommodates a cycling cap or winter cap as necessary. Lightweight, sharp looking, close fitting with a lot of hi-vis yellow around the rim. Very expensive unless you hit a BTD sale (I did), but regardless of price, I'll take any advantage I can get protecting my noggin in the event of an incident, especially when it looks so fine. Wouldn t change a thing on it.

Excellent Helmet

This is my second Giro helmet. First helmet was the Aether and thought that one was great. This is even better at a less expensive price. Fits a little more snug than the Aether, as well as coming a little lower on the forehead. Gets very close to the eyebrow line for me. Which I happen to like. Leaves just enough room for my Roka sunglasses to get right under the edge. Also thought the blue color was outstanding. I have 3 friends that also bought from BTD and they bought red and white. All colors look very sharp. Blue matched my bike very nicely. I would recommend this helmet to anyone looking for an aerodynamic helmet. One more thing, it's not very hot although this is the first time I will be using it in summer temps in the northeast. So cant say yet, if the prior statement will be accurate in July & August!

Preliminary review here

Hi there, bald guy, small head here.

I have been looking for something to replace my old Uvex helmet that has served me well, and is well past retirement age.

My requirements were

- good fit

- good ventilation

- does not make me look like toad from super Mario.

I tried out POC which ticked only the ventilation box and was comically huge on my petite head- also side note- some of the worst customer service I have ever encountered. (POC step up your game!).

Next I purchased a Kask Valero which ticked the last two boxes very well unfortunately the internal channels seem to hit some pressure points and gave me a headache on longer rides- especially with a cap underneath.

So now the GIRO

Whilst I am yet to put it through the ringer it was immediately comfortable and adjusted easily. The size small has a great low profile look and the ventilation is excellent.

The "MIPS without looking or feeling like MIPS" is very cool and the choice of colors are spot on.

Thanks Bike tires direct for the good price and the fast shipping.

This is my first Giro helmet i have purchased and I am glad that I did. The helmet is extremely comfortable due to the adjustments that can be made with the dial on the back. There is an additional adjustment inside the helmet that can be used to add additional comfort. I had measured my head in order to purchase the right size. I was surprised that I fit into a small even with a cycling cap underneath the helmet. I would recommend purchasing this helmet if you are replacing an existing helmet or purchasing your first helmet.
