Charlo wrote a review of Giro Remedy Carbon Fiber Helmet on December 21, 2011
Had the regular Remedy for 3 seasons and loved it, but it had seen it's share of tumbles and it was time to get a new one. HNR ran a great sale on the carbon, basically putting it at equal cost of the regular one, so I figured hell, why not, and switched to the carbon.
Nothing but raves. Same excellent fit, great vis, good looks, etc etc etc, only 5 oz lighter. Doesn't sound like much? How about if I said it was over 10% lighter? That sounds like a bigger deal right? Still no? Well, it feels like a big deal. Especially on a gravity bike, where anything that helps you to keep your head still and your eyes fixed on your line unfolding ahead of you helps you ride faster, smoother, and more confident. So, in other words, better. Bonus that at the end of the day there is no stiffness or "whiplashy" feeling in your neck from tying a big ole weight to your noggin all day.
If you liked the old remedy, or are a fan of the Giro fit, and are in need of a new full face lid, then go for it, you won't be disappointed. As with all helmets though, if you haven't tried the Giro fit, get out there and try one on before buying. I love the Giro fit, it works for me, but everybodies head is shaped different, you may do better with Fox, 661, THE, etc etc etc. No way to know for sure which you like most until you try them on.
Fit is first and foremost! You don't want to be uncomfortable, and worse off in the event of a crash, if the helmet doesn't fit right. That being said, if you try it and like the fit, or have liked the Giro fit in the past, by all means go in for this helmet, you will be happy with your purchase for a long time to come!!! Happy Trails out there-
