Giro Foray Helmet
SLEEK AND STYLISH. The Foray drafts off the bold design language of Giro premium Synthe helmet, and offers many of Giro’s best features including durable In-Mold Construction and the Roc Loc 5 fit system with two-way fit adjustment. The slim design is very light, offers impressive ventilation and is available in three Super Fit sizes so that you can get a helmet that looks, fits and feels like it was made for you.
In-mold construction fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet’s impact-absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows us to sculpt better ventilation systems, so In-mold helmets can be lighter and cooler than traditional helmets.
WIND TUNNEL™ VENTILATION
Giro helmets are developed utilizing our proprietary Wind Tunnel™ ventilation system, which combines active vents with internal exhaust channels that thrust cool, fresh air over and around the riders head-while forcing heat and stale air out. This significant increase in air channeling makes a difference that riders will immediately feel and appreciate.
SUPERFIT ENGINEERING FOR BIKE HELMET
A great helmet is so comfortable that once it’s on, it virtually disappears. Our proprietary three-size Super Fit system is based on “human scale factors” data and over 20 years of crafting helmets for the best bike riders in the world. The result is pure Skull Hugging Luxury™, a helmet that fits 98% of the world’s population, yet looks (and fits) like it was custom made just for you.
ROC LOC 5
After more than two-years of development, Giro introduces Roc Loc 5. This groundbreaking fit system provides an entirely unique user experience with an unmatched level of comfort, stability, adjustability and weight savings. With Roc Loc 5, you can easily dial-in both fit tension and adjust vertical position with a single hand. Just twist the dial for a tighter feel on rough terrain, then back it off a notch and relax across the flats or a warm climb. Even with these remarkable features, Roc Loc 5 is still nearly 40-percent lighter than its popular predecessor, Roc Loc 4.
Q: HOW DO I MAKE SURE MY BIKE HELMET FITS PROPERLY?
To work properly, a bike helmet must fit right and be worn properly. In order to offer you the best value and fit possible, Giro makes helmets in many sizes, including:
Step1: (Sizing your helmet)
- Large = 59 – 63cm / 23.25 – 24.75in.
- Medium = 55 – 59cm / 21.75 – 23.25in.
- Small = 51 – 55cm / 20 – 21.75in.
- Universal Fit Adult = 54 – 61cm / 21.25 – 24in.
- Universal Fit Women = 50 – 57cm / 19.75 – 22.5in.
- Universal Fit Youth = 50 – 57cm / 19.75 – 22.5in.
- Toddler = 48 – 52cm / 18.75 – 20.5in.
– In order to determine the size you need, you can measure the circumference of your head. Simply wrap a measuring tape around your head, being sure to locate the tape just above your ears and keeping the tape level front to back. Once you’ve determined the proper size, you can check to make sure the helmet fits correctly. If the helmet you own now doesn’t fit on your head with just a little room between your head and the headband when the fit system is loose, you should replace it with one that does. You should always wear the helmet positioned low enough in the front to protect your forehead, but not so low that it hinders your vision. Once you’ve got a helmet that is the right size, and positioned it properly, you can adjust the fit as follows:
Step 2: (Adjusting the straps)
– Open the Tri Loc™ adjusters on the straps. Put the helmet on and slide the straps through the adjusters until they are located comfortably under your ears, making sure there is no slack in any of the straps. Close and lock the Tri Loc adjusters. The front and rear straps should now join at a point slightly below your ears.
Step 3: (Adjusting the chinstraps and buckle)
– Fasten the chinstrap buckle and tighten the straps until the helmet fits snugly. How snugly? You should be able to open your mouth wide enough to eat. Make sure the chinstrap is well back against the throat, NOT on the point of the chin. Straps worn on the point of the chin increase the chance of a helmet coming off in an accident. Make sure the loose ends of the strap pass through the rubber O-ring near the buckle. If it does not, the strap may slide loose and the helmet can come off accidentally. Always wear the helmet with the chinstrap buckle fastened and the strap pulled tight.
Step 4: (Adjusting the fit pads)
– The helmet fits correctly when it is held firmly but comfortably in place by the interior fit pads and the fit system (Roc Loc® or Acu Loc™). The fit pads inside the helmet are held in place by hook and loop fasteners. You can use any combination of the different thickness pads provided with the helmet until the helmet fits firmly and comfortably on your head.
Step 5: (Adjusting the tension of the fit and stabilizing system)
– Your helmet may come with either of Giro’s patented Roc Loc® or Acu Loc™ fit and stabilizing systems. These systems attach to the helmet liner with either hook and loop fasteners or by snap-fit anchors. The systems are fully adjustable and they enhance the fit and stability of your helmet, but they are not a replacement for your helmets straps.
To adjust the fit and stability system while the helmet is on your head, push the buttons on the back toward each other to tighten the fit, and away from each other to loosen the fit. You can adjust the fit even more on systems that use hook and loop fasteners (Roc Loc Mini, Roc Loc 2 or older Roc Loc 3 models) by removing the helmet from your head, detaching the headband from the hook and loop fasteners, then moving the headband towards the front of the helmet to tighten the fit, or toward the back of the helmet to loosen the fit. On systems that use the snap-fit anchors (newer Roc Loc 3 models), you can adjust the fit by removing the helmet from your head, unsnapping the headband from the liner and moving the arms forward to tighten the fit or backward to loosen the fit. Roc Loc 4 and Acu Loc equipped helmets do not offer this adjustment. For safety reasons, we recommend that you do not attempt to adjust the systems while you are riding.
Step 6: (Adjusting the height of the fit and stabilizing system)
– In addition to tension adjustment, Roc Loc 3 and Roc Loc 4 systems allow you to adjust the height of the system for optimum comfort. To adjust the height, remove the helmet from your head and then slide the Roc Loc arms up or down. Experiment until you get a fit that is most comfortable.
Step 7:(Checking the fit)
– Once you think the proper fit has been achieved, grab the helmet with both hands and twist it to the left and to the right. If the helmet fits properly, the skin on the forehead will move as the helmet moves. If it does not, the helmet is too loose. Also, grab the helmet with both hands and try to remove it by rolling the helmet forward and backward as far as you can. Make a serious effort. THIS IS IMPORTANT. If you can roll it off the head completely in either direction, roll it forward so far that it blocks vision, or backward far enough to expose the forehead, it doesn’t fit correctly. If you cannot adjust the helmet to fit properly according to these instructions, DO NOT USE THIS HELMET. Replace it with a different size or model. Once you are satisfied that the helmet fits correctly and that all straps are properly adjusted and tightened, take a short test ride. Pay attention to overall comfort and helmet stability while riding. Make any minor adjustments to the fit pads, straps and stability systems to improve comfort or stability.
