Jeff B.wrote a review of Giro Encore 2 Helmet on April 1, 2008
Finally broke down & bought helmet. Great venting. Good comfort. Light.
Takes a beating from tree limbs splendidly, much better than rest of gear.
Sound of ice covered branches busting off hard plastic is a bit deafening.
BRIGHT ORANGE COLOR IS UNCOMMON AND WILL DEFINITELY GET YOU NOTICED BY SKI PATROL WHEN POACHING UNOPENED/OUT OF BOUNDS TERRAIN.
