Djosephwrote a review of Giro Nine.9 Helmet on February 23, 2003
Skiing Jackson Hole for the first time, I felt that this was a good time to start wearing a ski helmet so my kids don't have to ask me why they have to wear one and I don't. Well, the Giro Nine.9 was awesome. Never once did I even knew that I had it on. The light weight of the helmet was key, as well as a perfect fit, soft and snug. Didn't have the need to try the vent holes and honestly was a little afraid to lose the inserts. The soft ear pads kept me nice and warm though didn't drown out any conversation on the lifts. Also wasn't bothered by excessive wind noise while flying down the cruisers. Only down side is that the ear flaps are a little tricky to reinsert once removed. Overall, this is a great looking and fitting helmet and highly recommended to all my friends, especially my capless snowboarding buddy who suffered a minor concussion on the first day of the trip.
