Giro Torrent Helmets

DESCRIPTION

New for 2001, the TorrentTM is equally at home flowing down a single-track trail or weaving through traffic. No matter where you ride, 19 vents plus a snap-fit visor and sleek styling will give you the advantage you deserve. Our new Acu LocTM system and Super FitTM sizing make it simple to get a snug, comfortable fit.

Strength:

Light, comfortable, breathes well, and the fit system is great cuz i have a big head

Weakness:

weak shell that cracks and scratches easily

Well it's a pretty well put together helmet. It's held up to three big crashes. But i think it's time i stepped up to the full face.

Strength:

Inexpensive Comfortable Looks pretty cool

Weakness:

Gets very warm on hot days Visor rattles a little, but that's probably just my own helmet and not a general problem.

I have the Silver one purchased in early '02. This was the only helmet I tried out, and it fits quite well. It saved my noggin twice already, and held up great. The little pads you can place around the inside of the helmet help it stay in place even when flipping over forward... and backward... and tipping over... etc... *8) The visor does rattle in the slightest, and looks like it might a touch mis-shapen from being packaged too long? It also gets very warm. Summer in southern Wisconsin gets pretty hot, so if you're going to do a lot of riding in very warm weather, you might want better venting.
