The Giro Hex mountain bike helmets feature a tough rugged design, high performance, and very impressive value. Features that the new Rodeo range of bicycle helmets has, which the Giro hex does not have. The new Roc Loc 5.5 fit system means that these helmets are now easier to adjust than ever before.
When more than ten years after its conception, the revolutionary Fit system is finally offered in a bike helmet. This system offers an unparalleled level of adjustability, comfort, and safety. With the new Roc Loc 5.5, you are now easily able to dial-in both adjustability and fit tension with just a single hand. This makes it just as easy to use as any other standard bicycle helmets, but with added safety. In fact the extra large eye pads that come standard on the Giro hex and atmos helmet helps make them more comfortable.
The feature that is unique on these bike helmets is the Giro indicator helmet strap. If you use any other type of bicycle helmet then you won’t need to read this review as you would not understand what the advantage is that cycling shoes comes with. However if you are like me and cycle a lot, then the strap is really useful, I can get my hands on my glasses just as easy as if I had used a regular pair of cycling shoes.
I must say that this is probably the best designed feature of the giro indicator helmet. I have been using them for a number of years now, they are just as comfortable wearing as the regular cycling shoes. I also find them easier to clean compared to some of the other brands of bicycle helmets. One of the reasons why I prefer them so much is because they feel just like real bike shoes. You don’t have to worry about them sliding around when you go over a bump in the road. Another great feature is the lock-and-lock system, which allows you to adjust the strap to your preferred fit.
