The Amulet is a women's-specific goggle. Although there are no differences between male and female head shapes other than a smaller average size, Giro provides women's-specific designs to keep up with the fashion-forward kit found on the mountain. Construction features include a plush tailored face foam with a micro-fleece facing; an anti-fog coating to keep your vision and riding experience on point; vents cut into the lenses above the gasket line to allow warm air to escape; and a helmet-compatible design.
The Amulet goggle is the product of Giro's Super-Fit Engineering design process. Every new Giro product is designed with reference to the company's database of anatomic measurements and rider input. Giro then tests the design repeatedly in the lab and in the hands of riders, gathering feedback and making refinements every step of the way. The result is a product that fits and performs at the highest level.
Working late nights in his garage, designer/bike racer Jim Gentes created the first lightweight adult cycling helmet in 1985. Friends at NASA helped him tune the final helmet shape and vent placement, resulting in the Giro Prolight, a helmet that was better looking and better fitting than traditional designs yet still met the industry's toughest safety standards. Plus, it was half the weight of traditional helmets. Since then, Giro has advanced its helmets, many of which have set the standards for styling, function, and innovation for progressive, performance-oriented riders on dirt, pavement, and snow. Giro helmets are worn by millions of riders, cyclists, skiers, and snowboarders around the world: young bloods and old-timers; hardcores, heshers, and hipsters; rookies, experts, and a few regular Joes too--in fact, pretty much anyone that appreciates superior fit and function, cutting edge styling, and the very best ideas you get in a helmet. Giro is based in Scotts Valley, California.
