All-mountain riding demands gear that is versatile, lightweight without sacrificing durability, and comfortable enough to ride for four to five hours in varying conditions. So we developed the Xar™ specifically for aggressive trail riding, with features like 17 Wind Tunnel™ vents with internal airflow channels, the micro-adjustability of Roc Loc® 5 and our patented P.O.V.™ visor to deflect the sun, rain, brush and branches. If you’re riding bigger, faster and farther than ever, the Xar™ is fit to roll with you.
The XAR offers all the features you've come to expect from Giro's top-level trail-riding helmets—P.O.V.™ adjustable visor; In-mold composition with EPS foam and polycarbonate shell; Roll Cage™ reinforcement—but the XAR heralds a new era of performance, comfort and style.
X-Static padding contains a fiber made with layers of pure silver that is permanently woven into the fabric. Silver has natural anti-microbial performance that helps to reduce odor and regulate heat, so your helmet stays fresh and comfortable, naturally.
WIND TUNNEL™ VENTILATION
Giro helmets are developed utilizing our proprietary Wind Tunnel™ ventilation system. This elaborate design combines active vents
in the helmet’s shell with exhaust channels inside the helmet that thrust fresh, cool air over and around the rider’s head while forcing
heat and stale air out. It’s the most effective cooling system available, and a difference you can feel every time you ride.
SUPER FIT™ ENGINEERING FOR BIKE HELMET
Our proprietary Super Fit™ sizing system is based on “human scale factors” data and over 25 years of handcrafting helmets. By creating helmet molds in up to 4 adult sizes to match the human body’s form, our Super Fit™ sizes comfortably and securely fit riders, and feel like they are custom made just for you.
ROLL CAGE™ REINFORCEMENT
Roll Cage™ is a light-yet-tough web of reinforcement invisibly molded inside a helmet’s EPS foam liner. It helps the helmet to hold together under impact, and provides an extra measure of strength and integrity that you’ll never notice...unless you need it.
ROC LOC® 5
The industry benchmark in comfort, stability, adjustability and weight savings. In addition to enhancing the fit and comfort of helmets,
Roc Loc® 5 allows you to easily custom tune the fit tension and the fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds using a single
hand. And it’s lighter than comparable systems too, making it the ultimate in skull-hugging luxury.
Point Of View™ visors are anchored by a patented internal clutch mechanism that allows 15-degrees of tool-free, on-the-fly vertical adjustment
while preventing the visor from rattling and coming loose over rough and technical terrain. They’re also easily removed without tools.
The In-Mold construction process permanently fuses a light-yet-durable outer shell with the helmet’s impact-absorbing EPS foam liner,
enhancing the strength of both parts. This fusion process reinforces areas around vents and ribs, creating a one-piece ‘exoskeleton’ that
allows the helmet to be lighter, more durable, and better ventilated than helmets with shells that are fastened or adhered to the liner.
