    Safe slicing.

    Giro's Air Attack Shield Helmet main objectives are to keep you safe and save you watts in your next TT or tri, but don't go skipping your tempo day in the hopes that the Air Attack will carry you to an effortless win. The helmet won't plan your breakaway for you, but its improved shield design will work with the aerodynamic shell to reduce drag and possibly save you time. While you race, your eyes will stay protected from the sun and wind with the redesigned Flash shield's Carl Zeiss lens, which you can flip up or take off completely after your race.

    Saving watts is important, but racing comfortably matters just as much, so Giro gave the Air Attack extras like removable padding and its Roc Loc Air fit system to give you the freedom to easily customize the fit of your lid easily before or during a ride. And to keep you from overheating under layers of EPS foam and polycarbonate, Giro carved six effective air vents and internal channeling into the helmet tasked with ushering in a cool breeze consistently as you pedal.

    • Removable Carl Zeiss Flash shield with magnetic clips
    • Roc Loc Air fit adjustment
    • X-Static padding
    • 6 vents
    • Item #GIR00AG

    Great triathlon helmet!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I recently picked up one of these because of how much I liked the non-shield model. I haven't competed in any races with it yet but hope to do so this coming spring. All the same features apply! Great adjustable fit with the Roc-Loc Air. Better than expected ventilation. Now having the option of a shield is fantastic! Simply flip it around when not needed and it is safely and and conveniently stored out of the way.

    The slippery slope of aero vs. venting

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    Ive owned the base and shield helmet for two seasons and only made it a point to wear it all throughout this past summer in Houston TX. I was sold on it after noticing the reduction in wind buffeting and noise when you have your head down and forward. The complaints of it being a hot helmet are well founded. This helmet exacts its pound of flesh if you do not present it with the conditions required for it to perform as it was designed. If you're out front, and in the wind, with active airflow, this helmet breathes great. You can, and will feel the air go over your head inside. If you're living in the draft of a pace line, it negates all the engineering put into this helmet and you're left cooking your skull. Ventilation of the shield version against the base is negligible at best. The vents where the helmet meets your brow are meant to buffer against your face and then use the four vents on top to draw fresh air in and over. They're mostly effective, but not nearly as much as when you've got your head down and forward. I've worn it on multiple competitive centuries in temps well above 98F and was never any more uncomfortable than expected. The fit and finish are as well as any other upper end Giro helmet. Some people balk at the aesthetics, which I will agree, do take some time to grow on you. I find it interesting as this helmet is constantly compared to the Evade. Riding friends swear by that helmet, but also have the same complaint about it being a very hot helmet. I find that interesting as the number of vents is much higher than the Air Attack, so one would guess, more vents is much cooler. Perhaps that helmet needs the same conditions of the Air Attack as well. If you can stand the pain of living in the front and bringing the hurt to all behind you, at least be confident in the knowledge that your head will be quite cool, as well as the bit of effort saved from the aero benefits netted by the helmet itself.

    • Fit: True to size

    This helmet just saw my partner through a windy, relatively climb-heavy bike leg at Ironman Ceour d'Alene. She beat her target splits and entered T2 feeling a lot fresher than other competitors. I'm not sure how much the helmet actually helped, but every little bit can make the difference over 112 miles.

    She also uses it for everyday road riding and training. The relative lack of vents hasn't given her any issues in Northern Utah's 100 degree summer.

    My favorite "go-to" helmet

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    This helmet has solved the problem I had with sport glasses. My eyewear prescription is *co$tly* to order sport sunglasses...I wanted to wear my own glasses and this shield helmet allows this. Snap on the magnetic shield and I can comfortably wear my glasses behind the shield. The helmet is super comfortable - I chose the Neon color to be visible and it matches my shoes (Gaerne carbon) Its also not hot at all in the summer, given the vent area.

    There is some wind noise, but not more than other helmets in my experience.

    Great helmet

    I have a few of these same helmets due to different homes, bikes and accessories. I really like the look, fit and functionality, really like the shield which does not require I wear separate bike sunglasses. Great matte white, orange and fluo yellow colors.
