The first Giro Nine helmet was introduced back in 2001 and has been part of the company’s winter-sports product line ever since. Similar to the original, this new helmet is fitted with Giro’s polycarbonate shell construction, which gives this helmet extra strength while reducing the overall weight. For this season the design has been reshaped into a sleek, more low-profile helmet. The adjustable Super Cool vents improve the helmet’s inner climate by letting in cold air and releasing warm air. The special Stack Vents placed up front will keep your goggles from fogging up. This helmet is fitted with Giro’s famous In Form Fit System which allows you to easily dial in the perfect fit, even when you’re wearing bulky gloves. Because of its versatility the Giro Nine can accommodate a variety of head shapes and goggles. When you’re using Giro’s after market audio systems you can pump up your jams while hitting the snow.
- Lightweight yet strong and durable shell.
- Comfortable fit that’s perfectly adjustable.
