I always buy Giro bike helmets because they fit well. The Syntax MIPS model sits lower on my head and feels more secure. The MIPS feature could be the reason for this. The straps hold the helmet firmly on my head.
Wanted a reasonably priced helmet with MIPS and High Viz in it but not completely High Viz in color. Could not have found a more perfect helmet. Comfortable, easily adjusts and not heavy. Very satisfied with this purchase.
Got the helmet to replace an old Giro that the plastic side piece broke. Wanted to try MIPS because just in case. Very happy with how it fits further down over my head even with cap underneath. Comfortable and easy to adjust with knob at back. Not overly expensive which I like. Would definitely recommend.
The helmet feels solid and well made. Too to tell how well the straps attachments fair. The buckle seems a bit small compared to the last Giro I have. Squeezing the release part goes better with the left hand than the right do to the direction of the release points.
Super comfortable helmet as Iï¿½m on my 4th one. Itï¿½s a great fit without looking bulky as some helmets do. Itï¿½s easy to twist the back to tighten it even going down the road. Itï¿½s got the Euro flair that I really like and Iï¿½ve received many compliments! I ride every day of the week. I highly recommend the Giro Syntex helmet.
Im a big fan of the styling of Giros helmets, and this mode in particular fits well, is lightweight, and looks good. My only issue is that I always seem to break the flimsy plastic parts of the Roc Loc system within a couple months.
The inner frame of the white helmet is bright white, so you see bright white stripes on your head through the holes. Obviously not the most important feature, but it looks truly bizarre against any hair that isn't white.
Lightweight, good airflow, and a low profile. Pretty much a triple threat. MIPS protection which should be mandatory at this point. If you haven't looked into MIPS, I'll sum it all up for you do yourself a favor and throw out your old helmet and buy one with MIPS. One of the best helmets on the market, especially for the price.
I've worn several Giro helmets over the years, and found them easy to adjust and comfortable to wear. Safety is a concern, and the MIPS feature is an important addition for me. Fortunately, I haven't had to test whether the helmet will protect me from serious head injuries, but the reputation of Giro for a quality product does make me comfortable trusting that the helmet will protect me.
