Great news! I have the Giro Jackson helmet and Giro Method goggles. They are a great combo and form a seamless combination when worn together. The Method lenses take a minute to figure out how to change out but the VIVID technology is great.

Great news and I love Giro helmets. I’ve been wearing Giro since my 1st ski day 15+ years ago.

Very nice! I'm sure it's partially a matter of personal taste and the shape of my head, but I've always preferred Giro helmets for their fit. No other brand seems to work quite as well for me, and that's carried across many models of ski and bike helmets.

Hmm, I'm due for a new helmet . . . anyone run a Giro w/ Smith IO/X goggles? Good fitment?
i have zone mips with regular smith i/o. Seems fine?
Didn't notice any issues.

But my forehead and eyes on head might be different than yours

Ah good point, we have kind of long oval faces in the fam but Med/Lg hat size. Not YUGE but - not small either :).

This is exciting news!

I discovered just last week that Giro fit me better than other brands I have tried. I am typically in between a small and medium in a lot of brands, but not Giro. I bought a small Strata helmet and it's perfect. I can adjust to make room for a thin wool head covering, and I can snug it down when I don't have anything under it. It stays in place and fits perfectly with the Giro Ella goggles I got, which are the only pair I own that don't fog during all this mask wearing we are doing right now.

So, if you're a woman whose head measures about 54-55 cm around, Giro might be the brand for you.

My first helmet was a Giro Bad Leutenant. Loved the non racy image of such a shape (akin to the old US Army M1 iron helmet model) , living in a place where everyone and their brother tries to imitate/emulate racers, in every way. After years of use and abuse, moved to other brand, but I'd love to see a re-edition of the Bad Leutenant, updated with MIPS or somethingsuch.
