Caroline K.wrote a review of Giro Montara MIPS Helmet - Women's on August 13, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I'm a beginner mountain biker and was between sizes for this helmet. I went with a medium and have it set at two clicks above the minimum. My first ride with this helmet was a 25 mile MTB on Bois Blanc Island in Michigan. The morning was cool and sprinkling, and then it got humid and 80s. My head stayed a comfortable temperature on our 4 hour ride. The MIPS system sits on your head and there is a space between that and the outer helmet for air flow. The MIPS system is thin and also vented, so there is not much right on your head. The straps were comfortable and the visor took a branch or two. This helmet is also good for a quick ride to the beach or ferry. I'm really excited about my first Giro purchase, first MIPS purchase, and first real MTB helmet. Can't wait to wear it again and see if there is something similar for ski season. My boyfriend thought it was cute, too.
