The Giro Chronicle MIPS represents fantastic protection at an excellent price point.

The Chronicle isn't short on features either. This is no surprise considering it's drawing on the technology of the top level Giro Montaro. The Chronicle is rocking:

  • Deep Fit for maximum coverage and confidence to send it!
  • Protection - The MIPS sytem is an insert below the EPS liner that allows the head to rotate slightly within the shell of the helmet in the event of a big crash. This slows the rotational forces on the brain. The EPS shell is covered by a tough in-moulded polycarbonate shell.
  • POV Plus Visor - The visor has several preset positions including a high mode that allows you to store your goggles above the brow, but below the visor. Perfect for those long climbs!
  • Fit - Roc Loc 5 lets you easily dial in tension and adjust the vertical position with one hand.
  • Coolmax Hydrophillic Padding - Great for wicking away sweat while being plush and comfortable. Can absorb up to 10 times its on weight in sweat!
  • Ventilation - 14 wind tunnel vents draw cool air in and exhaust it out the back.

One deep lid!

by

This helmet is obviously good quality, no problem there, and no problem with the sizing, it's a perfect fit except that.....

....for me it always feels like i need to push the helmet up. Like it's too....well... deep. It sit's low on the brow, making goggles pretty much impossible if you want to wear them. It's glasses only with this lid.

Look, maybe my eyes are too close to the top of my head, but this ain't the first helmet I've owned, so I'm putting this one down to design.

There is some adjustment for this issue, but it's not enough in my opinion. I've got a riding buddy that has exactly the same issue with this one.

My 2c.

Amazing value for money

by

Bought for one of my kids, who is very into XC / Trail riding. Very good fit indeed, light and massive ventilation. Amazing value for money given it has a good visor, MIPS and GIRO backing

Have bought twice. Would buy again.

This is my second time owning this helmet. I destroyed the first one in a crash. My pelvis was fractured but thanks to this helmet my head was undamaged.

Or maybe my head was damaged because I’ve bought a second one so I can ride again despite the whole fractured pelvis thing. Maybe it worked too well and stopped any sense being knocked into me.

Five stars either way.

Saved My Life!

by

I just order my second Giro Chronicle after a big off on the weekend. Knocked unconscious, suffering from concussion, but I’m still here!
Cracked the helmet, but I know it saved me from serious brain damage , don’t know if the MIPS system made a difference or not, don’t care, the helmet saved my life I’m sure.
Helmet is comfortable, light and safe, so happy with it, decided to go straight back to the helmet I know and trust!

Ok, but could be better

by

Good solid helmet, lack of cool pads and thickness of helmet is a bit crap.. over all good winter helmet and feel safe in it

My giro fixture is preferred

Weak plastic clips fault

by

Don't buy it. Poor design on plastic clips and they are weak and break off.

I have used this helmet for less than 2 years, always kept it in case and it has never been damaged. The clips and plastic that holds the adjuster at the back of the helmet broke off on both sides and the helmet is now not usable.

I contacted Giro to see what they could do about the clear product quality and design issue and they said nothing as it was outside of warranty.
