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.
