Giro Sizing Chart
Giro helmets come in lots of sizes, so chances are there's one that's going to fit you. A helmet that fits correctly should feel snug, with just a little room between your head and the sweat absorbent headband and pads.
Once you have a helmet that's the right size and has been properly adjusted you can customize the fit with the adhesive-backed sizing pads. Stick them to the helmet shell so that when you put the helmet on, it feels snug but not too tight.
You've no doubt noticed the straps hanging off your helmet. As pretty as they are, they're not there for decoration. If your straps aren't adjusted right, your helmet won't stay on properly. So pay attention. The first step is to make sure the helmet is on your head correctly. That means the front should be level with the back. If the front is too low, you won't be able to see hazards like wayward puppies and cliff edges. If the front is too high, you may look awfully rakish, but your helmet will not protect the front part of your head in a wreck. Once you've got your helmet on right, what keeps it there? No, it's not 'gravity' you smart aleck. The correct answer is, of course, the straps, which have been threaded through the helmet kind of like a shoelace. And just like a shoelace, before you adjust the fit, you want the two sides to be even. If your straps aren't even, tug on whichever of the rear straps is shorter until they are.
Next you'll need to check the position of the Tri Loc strap guides. You want both the front and rear straps to be snug when your helmet sits level on your head with the Tri Loc strap guides positioned just below your ears. To adjust the length of the straps open the Tri Loc and slide whichever strap needs adjustment up or down until it is in the correct position. Any slack in the strap must be pulled through the chin buckle. Now snap the Tri Loc closed and adjust the other side. The loose ends of the straps must be passed through the rubber "O" ring.
Close the chin buckle and tighten the combined straps until your helmet fits snugly. How snugly? You should be able to open your mouth, but only enough to take in carbohydrates. Here's a good test to see if your straps are adjusted right. Try and pull the helmet off from both the front and back. This is important. Grab the helmet with both hands and pull hard. If it can be tipped forward, you need to tighten the back straps. If it can be tipped backward, you need to tighten the front straps. If you want your helmet to stay on in an accident, you need to make sure it won't come off in your living room. If you cannot adjust the helmet so it cannot be removed with the straps fastened or so it does not move excessively, DO NOT USE THE HELMET. Replace it with a different size or a different model.
HOW TO [sel-ect ]A SIZE
A helmet that fits well offers the best protection and the most comfort. That's why Giro has invested so much in the art and science of helmet fit. Our proprietary sizing system was created using data collected by the International Standards Organization (ISO) on head shapes and sizes of the worldwide population. Most Giro adult helmets are available in 3 unique shell sizes (XXS/XS, S/M and L/XL). Our children's and youth helmets are available in 2 shell sizes (XS/S and M/L).
Follow these directions to determine which size is right for you:
If you can't adjust the helmet to meet these requirements, exchange it for a different size or model.
GIRO: FIT FOR WOMEN
Fit has always been a hallmark feature of Giro helmets. And our helmets have always been designed to fit both Men and Women. Why do Giro helmets fit better? The difference is in the head-form. Our helmets are built on proprietary head-forms using data collected by the International Standards Organization (ISO) on head shapes and sizes of the worldwide population. ISO data showed that unlike feet, there is no consistent difference between the head shapes of men and women. The only consistent difference is one of size: women's heads are generally smaller than men's. For this reason, all of Giro's adult helmets are offered in 3 unique shell sizes (most of our competitors only offer 2). By building our helmets in more shell sizes, we fit smaller heads more comfortably and precisely.
Our Roc Loc 2 and Roc Loc 3 fit systems are ponytail compatible for long hairs of either gender.close

Super stylish and awesome protection

I tried this helmet on elsewhere, but when I was ready to buy, my size was sold out. Luckily, Altrec had it in my size for a raging price. They shipped it exactly when promised. The helmet is wicked cool and the venting switch works great when it's not super cold, and warm when it is. Can't say anything bad about Altrec or Giro. They're both great. Kudos Altrec!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
G10 worth the extra money
March 15, 2011
I've had a G9 for the past few years (large) that kept pushing my goggles down my nose so this season I opted to upgrade to a medium G10. Although tough to throw down money for a piece of gear I already own, I am glad I did for many reasons. My new G10 fits great with or without a beanie on and kept my ears warm without muffling out my hearing. All the vents open by sliding a lever (G9 had little covers in each vent you had to remove); and although well vented, there was still enough open space to stick my GoPro camera mounts. Supposedly the Giro helmets are made to fit with the Giro goggles but I have yet to find a shop that carries them to see if it is even worth replacing my Oakleys.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use

February 22, 2011
This helmet is just great for two reasons: 1. adjustable inside sizing and 2. adjustable vents. The adjustable sizing makes it fit your noggin perfectly, while not being too tight, which helps when wearing earphones while skiing. The adjustable vents allow you to adjust to the weather and keep your noggin the exact right temperature. It's $30 or so more than the G9 which doesn't have either. Just spend the $30 -- you'll love it.Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
March 22, 2012
My husband and I both purchased this helmet. His Large fits nicely with room to adjust for a snug fit. My medium fits great. We both like that it adds a bit of warmth to our cold heads. Then if we get too hot, we can adjust the vents. Our biggest concern was the helmet would be awkward and bulky to wear. Thankfully that's not the case. They are lightweight and comfortable. All around great product. Only negative is finding the right goggle to fit the helmet and our faces. But we hear that's typical matching goggle fit and helmet.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
Great helmet, very light weight
January 02, 2012
I needed something lightweight, durable and stylish at the same time and this was the perfect choice for me. This season i am starting to learn how to ride park and do jumps and other tricks. I needed the right helmet for the job and this is definitely it. I recommend this to anyone.Pros: Build quality, Great value
January 04, 2011
This helmet is very comfortable with very soft lining inside. It is great b/c it can be adjusted to fit your head better (tighter). I also like a lot the vents that can be closed or open. This allows me to feel comfortable (not too hot nor too cold) without taking my helmet off.Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost

The Giro G10 is a great helmet. I tried numerous other ones and this one is the best value on the market. No issues whatsoever.
February 13, 2012
Bought these helmets for my husband and son. They have been used on several ski trips since and have performed flawlessly! Comfortable, warm, lightweight and easily adjustable, and still look new. I prefer wearing a helmet over a hat and this one fits nicely but does not make them too hot on spring skiing days. My son has grown a lot in 2 years but the helmet still fits him for this years trip. The best part is the goggle clip, which keeps the goggles in place. But the helmet also accomodates sunglasses nicely.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use
Love this helmet, but love Altrec more!

Giro G-10 Ski Helmet
March 05, 2012
I went for the best and I feel I got it! The helmet is a good fit due to an adjustability roller on the back of the helmet. So on windy, colder days you can wear a baklava and still have a snug, safe fit. On top of the helmet you can be vented for warmer days, or close the vent for colder days with the push of a slide button! The ear pads have cut-outs ready for a sound-system installation! Don't cut corners, avoid a head injury, get the best!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Nice look, great fit, and good price. I have this with the blue tooth setup and it works like a charm.

I've been able to test this helmet in multiple riding seasons now and definitely recommend it. It keeps my head warm and works with my goggles. It is also very light and I do not notice it when I turn my head at all. Overall, it does not make me hesitant to go the extra few seconds and put it on. A little bit pricey, but it's worth the comfort.

comfortable but cooler then expected
January 29, 2008
I had been using a solid helmet for 8 years and in the warm weather it was simply too hot. The G10 is comfortable for my bald skull but at 12 degree F or cooler it is too cool even with the vents closed. A balaclava with a thin skull cap on it is my solution.
November 30, 2009
The vents really allow heat to leave and provides a very comfortable fit for all day riding. I would recommend this helmet!

Nice fit, warm, but goggles slide off when raised
February 09, 2012
I have used the helmet for about 10 hours over 2 days so far. I used it in 15-25 deg F weather. I can not speak to the durability of the helmet as I have only had it a couple of weeks. It was warm, light, easy to buckle, has an adjustable head band for a "snug" fit that won't "rock or swing" as your head moves. I have a full head of hair, and my head measures about 23.25 inches. I bought a large. The helmet is GREAT when used with "helmet compatible" goggles. I used mine with Scott "Strike" goggles. My main complaint with the helmet is that when I put the goggles up on the "eye-brow brim", for when I am in line or in one of the lodges, or I just want them off of my eyes temporarily, they snap back and trail on the back of the helmet like a long "pony tail". This is because the finish on the helmet is so smooth and the goggle strap is cloth. Some higher-end goggles have a rubberized or latex strap that I guess is supposed to eliminate this issue. But it was VERY frustrating. At one point, somehow, the goggle retainer snap in the back of the helmet came undone (not sure how but it may have been when I went under a lift-line guide rope), and then when on the lift, I put my goggles up for the ride up the mtn. When I reached for them..... GONE !!!!. I was able to retrieve them because they fell on a safety net over a body of water at the bottom of the lift. In looking for a solution, I found a product called "Goggle-Stop" specifically designed for this purpose. I have not got them yet. Not sure if I will. I was able to stick a small, 1.5 square inch patch of 3M Anti-Slip Tape on each side of the helmet to prevent this. So far it works well. This tape is available at any hardware store. It is like sandpaper that sticks on one side, and sells by the foot. Overall a good, mid priced, helmet with adjust able vents, and a comfortable warm fit. Just have to get the goggle situation under control.Pros: Ease of use, Cons: matte smooth finish makes goggles slide off
Good design and functionality

G10 has a good design and functionality. I think it is also very useful for children / junior because it's weight is very light. Delievering is so fast^^

I love the G10 Helmet. It is the perfect, light, comfertable helmet. The venthilation system works super.
February 20, 2008
I ordered a size small which fits my 54.6cm head perfectly. I can't even tell that I have a helmet on. Very well built helmet. The newer model does have an adjustable headband, which some may like. Great price on an older model though. Just as warm as any hat in my experience.
February 10, 2008
Superb helmet, warm but still comfortable, easily adjustable and looks great!
April 10, 2008
Our son has this helmet and raves about how comfortable, warm, light, and easy it is to wear. Seems natural for us to have one with all the tree skiing we do. Thanks for the quick delivery and great price.

Great lightweight helmet
March 10, 2008
This is my first helmet purchase and I have to admit, I was nervous about how it would fit and feel. I looked at the size chart for the G10, measured my noggin and ordered! It is lightweight, comfortable and fits great! It feels no different than wearing a hat. I'd highly recommend it!
April 21, 2012
If you're at the upper end of the size bracket, I'd definitely recommend sizing up. I measured according to the Giro size charts and couldn't even get my head in!
January 07, 2008
Bought one for myself and one for my wife. We both give them a 10.

Wonderful helmet! Have had my white one for 2 years and love it and bought my brother one for this ski season! I picked the pewter for him and he loves it with his Giro goggles as well. I was worried about a white helmet getting dirty, but it looks perfectly new and clean! Great price as well for the quality!
Well worth the price
December 16, 2011
Extremely comfortable helmet, sizing adjustment dial works well and doesn't slip. The different levels of venting actually make a considerable amount of difference heat wise (Fully Open, Half Open, Fully Closed). Fairly resilient shell- I bought a bright color with a glossy finish and initially I was worried it wouldn't hold up to regular wear and tear but it's done better than I would have expected, some scuffs show but not much else. Overall- Great Helmet I'd buy it again in a second.Pros: Great design, Build quality
January 22, 2010
Nice helmet. Very easy to fit. My Oakley O frame goggles fit well without any gap at the top. The ventilation works very well also.
I LOVE this helmet!
February 08, 2008
I ski professionally as a mountain guide, and LOVE this helmet. Giro has made great improvements in fit with the new adjusting system. I love the quick vent openings, so I don't get overheated. Great visibility, and good fit with goggles which stay secure. I like the fact that this helmet fits a bit lower profile than the Fuse, which I had previously. I don't feel like I look so much like a "bobble head." I went with the more feminine look of the women's model, with just a little pink, and a nice pinkish, pearly sheen. I liked the flat white, too, which may be more versatile. But, I have to admit, it's nice to look like a girl when you're skiing with all the guys.
Durable and hip
December 26, 2011
Great helmet for my 12 year old. She needed a larger helmet but the adult ones on the local market were too big. This one is so adjustable it will last for years of skiing fun (and safety). Loved the bright/neon green/yellow color, it is SO easy to find her on the slopes now! I like that it is very adjustable. She can wear the helmet alone or with a thin beanie or even a balaclava when it's really cold.Pros: Great design, Build quality
February 14, 2008
Perfect size, comfortable and durable. Very happy
Love this helmet!
January 13, 2008
A friend loaned me this helmet last season, since I'd never worn a helmet and wasn't sure what kind to get. It fit perfectly and I loved how warm I stayed, while having great ventilation at the same time! So this season I ordered one for myself from Altrec and I ride so much better now, with the security of knowing I'm safe from whacking my head, thanks to this helmet! I also love that I can add the earpieces into the helmet, which is great for my mobile phone which also doubles as an mp3 player. So I can listen to music and take important calls, while on the slopes!
Love This Product!

Great Ski Helmet! I bought it for my son and he loved it. I would recommend it to anyone.
Lightweight and warm
January 20, 2008
I just used this helmet in below zero temperatures and the helmet performed great. I like the quick ability to open the vents. In buying the helmet I was misled that it was a new model with the adjustable headband, which I would have prefered. Be careful of the sizing as it has changed with the newer models.
September 10, 2011
would have looked good in this helmet. very cool w/solid construction and features. optic green color makes a statement on the slopes or at prom (depending on your date).
March 06, 2012
Not skiing for a number of years it took some getting used to having a helmet skiing. It worked fine. A real benefit was the adjustable ventilation. The ability to adjust while wearing it was great. The adjustable headband was also usable while wearing the helmet, this proved the winning feature. Recommended.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, adjustable ventilation, adjustable headband

I have had this helmet for 2 years now. It is very comfortable and keeps my head insulated from the blustery cold and from the heat of sunny Spring days. Last Spring, I fell at high speed and hit a boulder, head-first, with this helmet on. The rest of me was hurting, but my head was fine. This helmet did its job.
January 18, 2010
Just what I was looking for - wonderful fit and very light.
February 17, 2008
Very comfortable. I love the vents which allow the wearer to open for air or close when cold. I just wish I had splurged for the bluetooth model so I could use my Ipod and cell phone with it!
Great helmet - Event better price
February 26, 2008
the G10 helmet is so light, you tend to forget you even have it on. the vent system works very well and prevents your head from overheating ... the removable ear-liners are a nice plus.
December 09, 2008
I extensively researched helmets and tried on a good number of them, including the G9, Fuse, Omen, Smith and Protec models. This model had by far the best fit (low profile) and easiest adjustment system. I bought one with the Motorola wireless system and it works AWESOME!! I was simply hoping for respectable music quality, but got much more. No issues with BT connectivity and the ability to switch to phone from music via the earpieces while on the slopes or the chair was fantastic. Microphone worked fine for outgoing calls as well! I would HIGHLY recommend this helmet.

I have Scott goggles, and it fits around the helmet perfectly. That was one of my concerns when getting a helmet. Other than that, this helmet is nothing fancy except the vents to keep your dome cool. I'm 5'5 135 lbs. The XS was a good fit.

Great Helmet and great price!
April 10, 2008
Got this helmet for my wife, and she loves it. We got it when it was the Deal of the day. Got the stereo ear pad's that REI was clearing out for $7, and we're talking a awesome combo for less that $50. Fit and finish are great. It's got the lever on top to adjust the airflow. As others have stated before, it is the 06 model and the only difference is the adjustable headband (not included on this one.) In any case, the helmet fits her fine. It's for the strap in the back to hold her goggles in place... The only problem is there is a small gap in between her helmet and goggles. It's probably more of a result of the goggles she was using. The Oakley Stockholm's have a tiny gap in the center vs the Spy Comet's which had a larger gap.
March 09, 2008
After 30+ years of skiing I realized that I have been flirting with disaster not wearing a brain bucket. I looked at and tried out a bunch and found that the G10 was lightweight, comfortable, cool on the warm days and warm on the not so warm days and provided me with the protection needed.
February 20, 2008
I just bought this helmet and used it for the first time 2 weeks ago. By far, the most comfortable helmet of all the one's I tried (and I tried on a bunch). Perfect fit, good looks. Haven't tried, or needed to, yet - but the fact that the earpads are removable is a nice extra benefit.

I liked every feature that this helmet has but it just didnt fit me right. I think I am in between sizes and just found that the Smith has a better fit for me.

This is a great helmet. It is very lightweight. I had never used a helmet before, but after my first trip down the mountain I forgot I was even wearing one. It just feels like I am wearing a beanie. The vents are very easy to open and close, even with gloves on. When I get hot and open them I can really feel the airflow all the way around my head. I wear the medium. I have a fairly small head for a man (wear 7 1/4 fitted ball cap), but the easy to turn size adjuster located in the back allows for a wide variety of head sizes and shapes. It also allows me to wear a beanie underneath on those really cold night trips. My only "complaint" is that the earpieces aren't quite as warm and fuzzy as my girlfriend's Junior G9. I can't really review the durability since I have only had the helmet for a few weeks, but I hit the back of my head on ice pretty good the other day and didn't feel a thing. This helmet was definitely worth buying.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, lightweight, Cons: Cost

Great fit. Great style. I'm not fond of hats or helmets but this helmet is so comfortable and lightweight... You don't even realize it's on. The vents are a great feature too.

My first helmet for skiing, I was worried that my head would be cold without a hat. I wore just the helmet and a windproof balaclava which kept my head and ears warm all day (0-10F and ~10mph winds). I did not try the ventilation switch.
G10 Helmet, great for skiin or snowboarding

The G10 helmet is great. It provides great protection as well as warmth. It is a great fit.

Easy adjustments to achieve a perfect fit. Lower profile and light weight make the G10 a helmet you'll look forward to wearing day after day. No more excuses for skiing unprotected. I ordered this helmet over the phone. The customer service people couldn't have been more helpful! Great helmet, great shopping experience.
Great so far

Up 'till this point, I hadn't bought in to the helmet craze that has been sweeping the slopes. I was too manly for a helmet. However, after seeing a friend take a horific fall in a Breckenridge glade, I decided it was time to get one. I tried on several brands and models and decided on the G10. I found it to be an excellent blend of price, features and comfort. After skiing for 2 days in Beaver Creek, I am a huge fan of the G10. The fit was excellent. So good that I forget I was wearing a helmet. It feels just like a hat and just as warm. We skied in heavy snow and the ability to change venting with the flick of a button was nice. Heavy wind and snow, close the vents. No snow, skiing hard, sweating, open the vents. Bottom line, I am now a fan of skiing helmets and won't hit the slopes again without my G10.

I already had this helmet, but it was a larger size and wearing out. I used your sizing chart and it fits perfectly. Great price.

The design of this helmet look GOOD! Very comfortable and keeps your head warm while riding. It's also lightweight unlike some of the other helmets I have tried on. Highly recommended!

I wasn't too sure about buying a helmet online before I tried it on. This helmet conformed very well and kept me very warm. It was really a great buy.
