This review is from: Giro Skyla Sport Bike Womens Helmet (Sports)
I went to the 2007 RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Bike Ride Across Iowa) as a support crew member, meaning I did the cyclists grocery shopping, set up their tents, that kind of thing. I was just starting to get into the cycling scene, and wanted to observe the different brands of cycling gear the team was using. Most of the guys owned Giro helmets, I was actually overwhelmed by how many of them had them. I had a conversation about the brand with one of the riders over the campfire and he sung its praises. I was skeptical, until the next day one of my teammates wrecked, pretty badly, and he was covered with scrapes and scratches, his helmet was wrecked, but he didn't sustain any head injuries, thank god. He walked away with not even a headache. The next day he went out and bought the same exact helmet again.

When mine came in, I was excited to try it out. The female designs are really cute, and are incredibly adjustable. I have a pretty big head for a female, and I was skeptical that it would fit my melon, but sure enough, if you crank that dial in the back long enough, it will fit. The numerous air slits are awesome too, as it lets your body heat out through your scalp. The only downside to that is you should probably wear a light bandana to avoid tan lines in your scalp. Even if you have long hair. As far as I can tell, the visor isn't removable, which wasn't a selling point for me at first, but it's about the perfect size, it doesn't get in your line of vision, and its just long enough to shade your eyes from the harsh sun. The helmet itself is also incredibly light, it doesn't weigh your head down, and half the time I feel like I'm not wearing anything on my head. I can't wait to road test it at this year's ride. Til then I'll be training with it.
