don't buy from backcountry

    my son's helmet broke within 4 weeks. I returned the defective product and I got the store credit. be aware! go to giro website and buy there. if the product is defective, you can return it for free (backcountry charges you the return label fee) and you get the replacement or full refund. backcountry doesn't offer you anything only store credit.

    Great helmet

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I ordered the Giro Slingshot helmet for my 5 year old son before our annual ski trip this year. Arrived in two days. The helmet is awesome. I love the bright orange color because it makes it easier to spot my son on the slopes. The helmet fits nice and is adjustable, so hopefully he will get several years of use out of it. The ear protection kept his ears warm as well. Also, fit nicely with goggles. This is a no brainer. The resort was charging $12/day to rent a helmet. We were there five days, which pays for a nice helmet that should last several years.

    Fine helmet

      This is a fine helmet. We have owned several adult and child helmets made by Giro for both ski and bike so we knew what to expect when purchasing.

      This helmet is fairly light and comfortable. My daughter enjoys wearing it and has never complained about discomfort. The adjustment dial is very easy to use. Depending on whether my daughter has straight hair or braided pig tails, I can easily adjust this helmet while it is on her head.

      In the end, I don't think there is anything amazing or terrible about this helmet. It's a good quality helmet with an easy adjustment system. I would have no problem recommending it to friends.

      Fine helmet

      great choice for kids protection

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      two boys 6 & 7 - extremely active and always pushing it...this helmet has been excellent in terms of fit and adjustability, as well as functionality and according to them, comfort. No complaints of cold heads etc, so guessing its warm too...

      Only complaint, the ear warmer inserts do wiggle loose, so tighten the adjustable straps to keep helmet firmly in place...(hence only 4stars). The Goat sticker is optional!

      great choice for kids protection
