Kicking things off on the shores of the Pacific back in ’85, Giro Helmets originally began developing cycle helmets for the peloton, mountain chargers and easy cruisers of the sunshine state. It wasn’t until 1999 that they started making lids for us sideways standers.
Now Giro are one of the biggest players in the helmet market, with a team roster as long as the BFG’s arm. Their lids are always bopping out the pipe in competitions or rotating at dizzy speeds through the slopestyle course.
In 2007, they introduced their first goggle line at ISPO in Münich and quickly followed up their launch with an exclusive deal with Finnish slayer Antti Autti. In the UK, Madison signed on the dotted line in 2009 to distribute the helmets to keep us all safe and they quickly snapped up some of the UK’s finest talent with riders such as Jenny Jones, Ben Kilner and Scott McMorris. Unfortunately, Madison and Giro’s marital bliss came to an end after some dispute over the importation of so called ‘grey’ products.
Everything within the Giro line is designed to fit seamlessly with their helmet collection so you can comfortably protect your head as well as your eyes. You’ll see this when you check out team riders like Sebbe de Buck, Bryan Fox and Enni Rukajärvi rocking the combo.
