We just got in the Giro Air Attack this week and let me tell you they’re going fast. Why? Because of its design! It gives the best of both worlds, not to mention the helmets sleek look. The Air Attack gives you aerodynamics and ventilation. Inspired by the original, the new Air Attack™ Shield delivers a dose of free speed. Its compact, lightweight and super-aerodynamic design slices through air to deliver a hyper-efficient ride. And with the comfort, adjustability and enhanced airflow you get from the all-new Roc Loc® Air system. It’s quite possible the coolest thing design you’ll put on your head. “The two biggest obstacles a rider has to overcome are the wind, which forces a rider to work harder, and heat, which forces the body to divert energy to cooling,” said Eric Richer, Giro senior brand manager. “The Air Attack can help riders to overcome both obstacles efficiently.” To maximize cooling, Giro’s Roc-Loc fit system keeps the helmet 3 millimeters above your skull, maximizing air flow and creating a venturi effect.
The visor — designed and manufactured by Zeiss — is affixed to the helmet with three magnets, making installation and removal a snap, even at speed. Leanda Cave wore the Giro Air Attack through her Kona World Championship win. Giro AIr Attack gave her that competitive edge. Come by the store and check them out!
