Giro’s Xar, and evolution of the massively popular Xen helmet is now available in bike shops (It’s scheduled to be on Giro.com on 4/1/11). The helmet has improved fit with its new “Roc Loc 5” retention system and is massively breathable with its 17 large vents. MSRP is $130. Check out Giro’s Xen mirosite here: www.giro.com/xarhelmet.
Thankfully we didn’t have to test the brain protecting abilities of the helmet in the video.
