The Giro Hex Mountain biking helmet features rugged style, big performance and impressive value. Features the new Roc Loc 5 fit system. After more than ten years of refinement, this ground-breaking fit system provides an entirely unique use experience with an unmatched level of comfort, stability, adjustability and weight savings. With Roc Loc 5, you can easily dial-in both fit tension and adjust vertical position with a single hand. Just twist the dial for a tighter feel on tough terrain, then back it off a notch and relax across the flats or a warm climb. Even with these remarkable features, Roc Loc 5 is still 40-percent lighter than its popular predecessor, Roc Loc 4. Roc Loc 5 systems is: 1) Micro Dial. The heart of the Roc Loc 5 is this ratcheting, micro-adjusting dial. A simple, two-finger twist of the Micro Dial opens or closes the retention system and each click is audible. 2) Three-Position Vertical Fit - It's never been easier to change vertical positions and fine-tune fit. We incorporated a three-position bracket that features 15-millimeters of precise up/down movement. Like the Micro Dial, this system can be adjusted without removing the helmet. 3) Carefully crafted ergonomic arms are shaped to be as comfortable as possible, yet work flawlessly with Giro eyewear (what we call Super Fit engineering). 4) Dual Pods - These two panels are designed to firmly grasp the back of your head while comfortably cradling the occipital lobe. Strap management - with Roc Loc 5, your helmet straps are woven through the fit system, so they are always in the perfect position. Complex Internal Design - Dozens of small parts work together seamlessly to provide exceptionally user-friendly adjustment. Minimal and Light, yet Strong - Although this fit system is 40% lighter than its predecessor, it's much stronger. In testing, Roc Loc 5 performs flawlessly, even after 6,600 cycles (equivalent to 3 years of riding with 3 round trips per day).

He tried it on, it fit great, and the color matched the CamelBak I got him months prior.
On one of his adventures with a friend, he took a really hard spill after his handlebar caught onto a chainlink fence he was riding too close to. He didn't have much time to break the fall, broke his wrist, and hit his head and shoulder really hard...
When I say really hard, I mean hard enough to completely crack the material inside the helmet. He was left with small bruise on his forehead from the impact, but the design of the helmet not only saved him from any kind of head/brain injury, but also saved his face from any kind of contact with the ground.
By his request, I replaced this one with a Giro Montaro.
He's still alive and well and almost completely recovered from the wrist injury.
The NightRider strap mount for my helmet light threads nicely through the vents so it looks natural and the light mount is secure.
The straps are super thick heavy duty so any twisting would naturally be more noticeable with the wider straps. But there is a way to get rid of the twist (in response to other reviews). One must be patient and the method I use is to set the buckles at the bottom center under my chin, then set the angle between the forward strap and the aft strap. This can take some time, but only needs to be done once. Setting the angle can screw up the overall length setting so it may be several adjustments to get the forward strap coming straight down, forward of the ears, and the rear straps to run to the back of the helmet, again, away from the ears. Once the angle is set, you slide the buckle about two inches above the latch buckle, hold tension on the strap and hold the straps flat from twisting, then flip the lever on the buckle. This will hold the straps in the proper "untwisted" state as they will be spread in a "V" right where the buckle holds them that way. Repeat for each strap.
I usually stick to rail trails and light dirt roads, but when I get out on the pavement it doesn't add too much drag. When riding into the afternoon sun the visor is a nice addition, though it can be easily removed.
