TIMOTHY M.wrote a review of Giro Foray Helmet on December 6, 2019
Fit: True to size
My current helmet is a 2015 Giro Aeon, which is very light and comfortable. It also had a list price of $200 when new.
The Foray has a very similar design to the Aeon, and has actually improved the side buckle guides so the straps lay flatter against your head as they pass through the guides. The padding is nearly identical, and both use the excellent Roc Loc 5 rear fastening system, which easily allows for one handed fit adjustments using the rear dial.
Now, the Aeon certainly looks better, with more sculpted angles on the top of the hard shell, where the Foray as a more rounded and duller finish, but that’s purely cosmetic. Both helmets are extremely well ventilated, with very similar large venting on the front, rear, and sides.
One difference is the weight, my Aeon comes in at 230 grams, the Foray is 260 grams (both size Medium). That’s about a one ounce difference.
The Foray’s value simply can’t be beat. I got it on sale at CC for under $30, even at the full list of $65 it’s an incredible bargain.
So, great fit, great ventilation, great value, and one ounce heavier than my old helmet for about 1/6th the price.
Recommended, get one while you can.
