Bring the Giro Bad Lieutenant Helmet to assault the park.

The Giro Bad Lieutenant Helmet is standard-issue gear for riders working on advanced maneuvers around the globe. A high-impact ABS shell is bonded with an impact-absorbing EPS liner for protection against incoming fire and hard landings. The removable earpads are backed with plush fleece padding. Because you're in combat mode, you'll have to do without ventilation. The Lieutenant is TuneUps compatible. The Green Camo and Snow Camo helmets have canvas covering.

Saved my head, my ass and my life more than once. And the babes love it because it's so rad looking. Never ride without a helmet kids!! And stay in school!!!

I have had this helmet since 2005-06. For some reason I like this helmet I don't need to get rid of it. It still is functional as it was on day 1. This helmet was made for style & durability. At some point it'll go, but I've gotten 500ish days out this helmet. When it goes I'm staying with Giro most likely.

Dig it.

Seemed to make me look like a fat-head at first glance, but once it was on and I was suited up that problem ceased to be one. The leather cover has held up good for a couple of seasons, no major scars. Banged my head eating it once or twice playing on the wall ride and did what a helmet was supposed to do. Giro always makes quality noggin covers and this one was definitely worth the cash.

The best. The coolest.

The only helmet that doesn't make you look like a "special" child. I have bounced my head off the ice with this helmet and have been totally fine after...thank god. It's cool.

Does it come with the audio feature or do...

Does it come with the audio feature or do you add that at checkout? Thanks

no backcountry doesnt work like that...what is on the page is what you get, so this is just the can buy the tune ups seperatley, probably on this site, or you can look for the one with the audio system included (if that exists)

Great helmet

This helmet is awsome. I'm up in Duluth Mn, and my head stays warm, never hot and never cold. It fits great and you can hardly feel it on your head. I have taken a couple of nasty spills with it to, and nothing serious, just a little dizzy and the wind knocked out of me, but im still here. I would recomend for anyone, for the park or not.

Worked for me!

This helmet is great! Having vents would really be better though especially on those really warm days. If it's going to be warm out, get ready for sweat beads. Other than that, the helmet looks really cool.

Four star riders, not your helmet

You get what you pay for...The giro helmet looks great in a box, or on a shelf, but on your head you'll look like Dark Helmet from Spaceballs. The fit is about right, but there is hardly any adjustable padding, in fact there's hardly any padding at all inside. Mine nearly fit, if there was more padding it would have been ok, but the hard foam inside gives a solid headache after a few minutes. The price is great, but if your melon doesn't match up with this helmet just right you're screwed. Overall, fit isn't great and the whole thing seems cheap when you look at it in person.

iz good

i like a lot about it, but...
pros- comfy, doesnt make your head seem enourmous like some helmets, not to pricey,

cons- strap pinchs unless you loosen it, loosening it is confusing for an idiot like me, the goggles strap doesnt fit around the plastic adjuster thingy on the goggles strap, so it has to be pushed off to the side(a minor inconvenience), and the straps of my goggles dont sit well on the sides (which doesnt matter but it bugs me for some reason)

overall though the pros are more important then the cons, if not as lengthy... a def buy.

Does the fatigue green model have a picture...

Does the fatigue green model have a picture of 3 grim reapers on the side?

Responded on

Yes, as you can see on the Detailed View its some kind of bird on the right side with alot of Giro logos mixed up behind it.

Looks great

This helmet looks great but pinched a bit at first. After riding w/it for a little bit, though, I seemed to have gotten used to it where I don't notice it too much. The only major gripe I have is that the goggle strap on the back doesn't snap over my goggles so I had to make an adjustment there. Otherwise the helmet looks great and works well w/my Smith goggles (aside from the strap issue).

Fantastic helmet!

I chose the black leather model and I am very satisfied. The helmet has a fantastic look. The absence of vents is not a problem and I never felt sweaty while skiing or overheated. Not itchy at all like with my usual wool ski beanie. Great purchase at a great price.

Decent for the price

Great looking helmet, but it is a tad bigger and heavier than most. It also doesn't have vents so it can get hot in there. All in all, it's a decent helmet and I really didn't notice the drawbacks while I was boarding.

Kid tested father approved helmet

My 13 year old snowboarding/park rat son and I have been wearing the Bad Lt. for the past 2 seasons. There are no downsides to this item. It looks great, the audio ear flaps sound great and keep ears warm, a sturdy snap strap holds goggles in place and there are no gaps between the goggles and helmet. The lack of vents is a non-issue - you do not overheat. The fact my son proactively puts it on for the looks and the music and I wear it because I'm old enough to know that it could be the difference one day (and as I said, it does keep ears warm and does sound great) makes this an all around winner. I also believe that the helmet has a timeless enough quality (in other words it will still be "cool", "steezy" or whatever the word will be in 3-5 years) that I have one each extras in the attic.

This is the best helmet i have ever worn, it has padding to ensure comfortable fit, removable padding just in case you want to wear a beanie or just make room for you head. Sizes matched exactly. The helmet is so light you barely even feel it and then when i took a hard crash i got whip lash and my head hit but with this helmet i barely felt it. overall the best helmet i have ever had and will ever have.
I fully recommend to every one considering this helmet.

Good Bucket

The helmet is pretty good. Performs well and looks good. Just be careful. In colder temps the ear pieces seem to be very fragile as they are attached with a thinner plastic.

Love It

Awesome helmet - looks cool, keeps ears warm and head safe!

I love this new helmet that i just bought. the best part about it is that it looks so good out on the mountain and perfectly matches my awesome k2 silencers. the helmet keeps my head and ears really warm when it gets cold later in the evening but when its warm it's great to be able to remove the ear warmers with such great ease. The Bad: not easy to tighten with the chin strap in place, and goggles seem to not want to stay on the helmet when they are taken off the face. all in all i would recommend this product
