Sneak Peek: All-New Giro Cipher Full-Face Helmet 11

We spotted a new Giro full-face helmet on the heads of several riders at Crankworx, from slopestyle to enduro athletes. After many years with the Remedy at the top of their gravity line, it's rad to see something new from the brand. Dubbed the "Cipher," the helmet looks pretty dang good...

At first glance, it appears as though Giro learned a lot from the Bell Full-9, which is to be expected since both companies share their headquarters in Scotts Valley, California. Several features are closely related to the Full-9, but with Giro's own twists.

An integrated camera/light mount is situated behind and under the visor. There is no center support on the visor.

The chin bar looks to be much closer to the face than the Remedy.

In the event of an emergency, the cheek pads can be pulled while the helmet is still on the rider by simply tugging on the red tabs. The yellow label on the lower pad also indicated that there are built-in slots for a headphone system.

The new lid also popped up in Mont Sainte Anne. // Photo by Tim Bardsley-Smith

We expect to get full details in the coming days. Until then, keep an eye on Giro's facebook page and website for the latest!

    Most important than looks (which appears to look awesome) is the inner side ( protection ) hope they do get better.

    I loved my Remedy...(before it fell under the wheels of a shuttle bus)...and I really liked the fact that the chin bar was a long way from my chin.
    Finding another helmet that I cant lick the breathing vents is a hard task.
    The Remedy is great for those of us with big heads/massive brains

    no need to spend a fortune for a troy lee.. the remedy is just as good... its personal preference like anything else, but the remedy saved my life while racing... and a hell of a lot cheaper to replace !!!!!!!!!!!

    It sounds like they will with this helmet. They mention learning something from the Bell Full-9 which sounds like it is pretty high priced.

    The Remedy was one of the last quality, stylish full faces. I hope this new one doesn't join the ranks of pricey Troy Lees.
