Product Shot 1The Giro Athlon is a mountain / XC-racing bike helmet featuring 23 large “Wind Tunnel” vents that help keep the user cool and refreshed.

The bike helmet itself is made from microshell and hosts an adjustable fit system for full adjustment in both vertical and fit-tension dimensions. Most users praise the Athlon for being adjustable and comfortable feeling, but they say the padding is prone to falling out quickly, and that despite what Giro claims, the Athlon is oftentimes too hot—especially in summer-time weather.
