Trail and enduro riders are now demanding helmets with a deeper back for more protection, yet without A compromise to either weight or ventilation. For A trail riding LID, the new Giro Chronicle scores a place in the 2017 Dirt 100.
At just shy of £100 this new Chronicle trail lid isn’t Giro’s cheapest option but sees some serious improvements over the Feature helmet which it replaces in their line-up. If there was one criticism of the Feature it was its ventilation – which we (and many others) felt was lacking. Other than that we loved the fit and this new Giro helmet is a great replacement. Giro have added plenty of recent developments to their range – in particular the well-received Montaro a modern take on their original Supermoto helmet.
