Giro Ski Helmets and Giro Snowboard Helmets: The Marriage of Fit, Form and Function

Giro's Super Fit engineering process is the foundation of every Giro helmet -- ski helmet, snowboard helmet, or bicycle helmet. Every model is scaled and shaped for its intended wearer using a database of cranial measurements and rider input compiled from hundreds of people large and small, young and old, from around the world. Conceptually speaking, this means that if there is a perfect fitting ski helmet out there made specifically for you, it’s most likely a Giro ski helmet.

The breadth of the Giro ski helmet and snowboard helmet lineup, including women's giro ski helmets, kid's giro ski helmets, and men's giro ski helmets, speaks to the commitment Giro has made to outfit each and every skier and snowboarder with a level of head protection unsurpassed by any other manufacturer in the business today. With more than 20 Giro ski helmets to choose from, you are practically guaranteed to find a Giro ski helmet that will fit you perfectly – man or woman, adult or child.

Maybe you race. Maybe you love the half pipe. Or maybe you like to take your sweet time coming down the mountain. No matter. Giro ski helmets and Giro snowboard helmets are designed for all disciplines and all types of skiers. Whether backcountry, freeride, telemark, terrain park, downhill, slalom, all-mountain, or multi-sport, there’s a Giro ski helmet designed specifically for you.

SportsProtective Staff Picks for Giro Ski Helmets

With more than 20 Giro ski helmets from which to choose, it was hard to come up with just a couple of staff picks. However, we all agreed that the Giro Seam helmet is darn near the perfect ski helmet. The Giro Seam is highly protective, very well vented, and surprisingly lightweight. Among other things, it features:
  • A tough polycarbonate hardshell injected with the highest quality in-mold EPS foam liner
  • Stack vents developed to line up with the vents on the top of your goggles and release the fog-inducing moisture that can get trapped behind your lenses
  • 10 adjustable surround vents, and two rear vents to let air flow out
  • Thermostat vent system with one, flush-mounted rubberized slider for on-the-fly air adjustment
Another Giro ski helmet that we love is the Giro Edit ski helmet, one of the most technically advanced ski helmets. The Giro Edit features:
  • A tough polycarbonate hardshell
  • GoPro mount built in
  • 8 vents with Giro's Stack Vent system to keep you cool
  • The great fit that comes with Giro's SuperFit engineering
Another thing we like about Giro ski helmets: All Giro ski helmets model years 2009 and later feature ear pads that are compatible with Giro's TuneUps Audio Drops, so you can listen to music and/or use your phone on the lift or slopes.

Giro Head Protection - The Most Comprehensive Line of Ski and Snowboard Helmets

Giro, based in Scotts Valley, CA, is a worldwide leader in the design, development, and marketing of premium, high-performance protective gear and accessories for action sports and active lifestyles. Since 1985, Giro has been at the vanguard of helmet design and protection. Helmet technology has improved steadily ever since.

Ski racing helmets and bicycling helmets used to be clunky things that were heavy and poor fitting because helmet construction technology lagged significantly behind the science of head protection. Thus the cyclist or skier who wanted head protection was limited to heavy motorcycle-like helmets with little or no vents. Then in 1984 came a new protective standard, ASTM F2040, and an ingenious designer by the name of Jim Gentes, who had a vision to create lightweight, well-vented yet highly protective headgear that could achieve this new ASTM F2040 standard.

Gentes founded Giro Sport Design in 1985 and brought the first Giro helmet to market in 1986, an oversized, expanded polystyrene (EPS) bicycle helmet that came with interchangeable bright-colored Lycra cloth helmet covers. Because it had no hard shell, this new Giro cycling helmet was incredibly lightweight. It was also extremely well vented. And with the interchangeable covers, Giro brought style into the mix. One day you could ride wearing a red Giro helmet, the next day you could wear a blue one. Over the next two decades, Giro continued to advance its bicycle helmet designs. Giro was able to apply much of its experience in constructing bicycle helmets to manufacturing ski helmets and snowboard helmets. With more units sold than any other manufacturer, Giro ski helmets are quite simply the leader in protective gear for your head.
