If you’re into All Mountain riding you’ll be interested to hear that Giro have released a new model, the Xar, inspired by the classic Xen which we featured in the Dirt 100
You’ll have to wait a while though, the Xar won’t be available till Feb 2011, cost will be £114.99srp.
The XAR offers all the features you’ve come to expect from Giro’stop-level trail-riding helmets—P.O.V. adjustable visor; full coverage in-mold composition with EPS foam and polycarbonate shell; Roll Cage reinforcement; and the new Roc Loc 5 fit system -the XAR truly heralds a new era of performance, comfort and style.
At the heart of this helmet you’ll find 17 Wind Tunnel vents as well as optimized internal channeling, and the visor is vented to increase airflow. Breathability on the XAR is incredible; there’s never been a lid this breathable on dirt. Even the padding is extraordinary thanks in part to X-Static anti-microbial fabric.
