The new Giro Xar trail helmet, spawned from the proven Giro Xen, has finally come to market. Vital MTB spent some time at the Giro facilities in Scotts Valley, California to meet the people and see the processes behind the most comfortable trail helmet I've ever ridden. After the tour, the Giro boys slay some speedy, slim Santa Cruz singletrack...ahhh, the life of a Giro employee living without the hassles of snow.

I Love My Xar
I've been using the Xar for a couple of months now and don't know how I'll ever want to put a different trail helmet on my head again. It's extremely lightweight with great adjustability via the Roc Loc 5 system. I've become so spoiled, that I'll loosen the RocLoc for slow climbs to keep me cool, then give it a twist before the descents to snug it up.

If you're in the market for a new trail lid, I recommend the Giro Xar.

My personal Xar. Along with the fit, I'm a fan of the color and graphics.Having simple, but effective adjustments is the key to a great-fitting helmet and the Roc Loc 5 is something I couldn't live without now. It not only adjusts the lateral security, but it moves up and down too, making the fit extremely custom to your head.
