Product Description

The Giro Foray road cycling helmet is a sleek and stylish lid with a tough In-Mould polycarbonate shell to offer the best protection as you ride.

The first thing you notice is the streamlined sporty design of the Foray. Plenty of venting at the front and big exhausts at the rear offers a great through flow of cooling air, even on the hottest summer rides.

With a Roc Loc 5 retention system at the rear, the Giro Foray is easy to adjust on the fly with a single hand. You also get height adjust offering an even better fit

Key Features:

  • Streamlined Design
  • Plush interior
  • Super Fit Engineering for Bike Helmet

Construction:

  • In-mould polycarbonate shell with EPS Liner

Fit System:

  • Roc Loc

Ventilation:

  • Wind Tunnel™ Ventilation
  • 21 Vents

The Foray drafts off the bold design language of our premium Synthe helmet, and offers many of our key features including durable in-mould construction and the Roc Loc 5 fit system with two-way fit adjustment. The slim design is very light, offers great ventilation and is available in three Super Fit sizes so that you can get a helmet that looks, fits and feels like it was made for you. MIPS models are available with the Multi-Directional Impact Protection System. We believe MIPS can redirect energy and offer more protection in certain impacts.

Roc Loc 5 Fit System

The industry benchmark in comfort, stability, adjustability and weight savings. In addition to enhancing the fit and comfort of helmets, Roc Loc® 5 allows you to easily custom tune the fit tension and the fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds using a single hand. And it’s lighter than comparable systems too, making it the ultimate in skull-hugging luxury.

In-Mold Construction

In-Mold Construction fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet's impact-absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows for better ventilation systems, making in-mould helmets lighter and cooler than traditional helmets.

Super Fit Engineering

Our proprietary Super Fit™ sizing system is based on “human scale factors” data and over 25 years of handcrafting helmets. By creating helmet moulds in up to 4 adult sizes to match the human body’s form, our Super Fit™ sizes comfortably and securely fit riders, and feel like they are custom made just for you.

Wind Tunnel Ventilation

Giro helmets are developed utilizing our proprietary Wind Tunnel™ ventilation system. This elaborate design combines active vents in the helmet’s shell with exhaust channels inside the helmet that thrust fresh, cool air over and around the rider’s head while forcing heat and stale air out. It’s the most effective cooling system available, and a difference you can feel every time you ride.

Giro Foray - Yellow

Price was good especially with a little discount. The hlemet is light and fits well with no movement. The quicktime adjuster at the back is very useful as I am wearing a thin hat at the moment as it is still cold. The strap being new do not lay flat but I expect that to resolve as they bed in. Cannot comment on airflow as wearing a hat but plenty on venting across the helmet. - recommended, why spend 2X more to save a few grammes in helmet weight. lose half a few grammes in weight yourself instead its free lol.

Road Helmet Guide

 

Road Helmets

Wearing a road helmet while cycling is the best way to maximise your safety. All our road cycling helmets meet the minimum EU safety standard (CE EN1078); what you pay for is aerodynamics, reduced weight, more vents and enhanced safety features such as MIPS. 

We’ll look at all these features in-depth below:


Features

Shell

Most bike helmets are built with an outer plastic shell bonded to polystyrene inner. It’s this inner material which absorbs the energy from an impact. The plastic outer layer stops small bumps and scratches from damaging the inner, and it also stops UV rays degrading the polystyrene.

Road helmets are designed to be as lightweight and aerodynamic as possible with plenty of venting to keep you cool.

Performance road cycling helmets are more aerodynamic to reduce drag as you ride. High-end models often go through some form of wind-tunnel testing for efficiency. Time Trial helmets may taper like a tear drop at the back to help wind slip around the lid and out the back.

Road helmets are designed to be light, aerodynamic and well ventilated

Core

Bike helmets are constructed of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) which is a great material for absorbing impacts, whilst being lightweight. 

Nowadays almost all helmets use in-mould technology where the shell and EPS core are moulded together, allowing for more intricate shaping for vents and aero designs. It also stops the shell separating from the core. Crucially in-mould lids improve impact forces transferring to the foam core.

Consider foam density when making your choice. Helmets with single density foam will deform more in a collision than those with multi-density foam, which offer more impact protection.

A brand-new material called Koroyd is coming onto the market and offers enhanced protection with a lighter weight. Thermally welded hollow tubes form a honeycomb structure which can absorb 30% more energy than a similar cycling helmet made from polystyrene. Koroyd also enhances ventilation as all those hollow tubes allow heat to escape.

MIPS

Mips (Multi-directional impact protection system) is a new safety technology being released on premium helmets. It is a moveable plastic layer that sits within the helmet and slips around your head during angled impacts. This helps to reduce twisting impact forces on your brain. Currently helmets with MIPS are pricey, however, the slip-plane technology is getting cheaper all the time.


Fit & Straps

Fit is a key part of safety and comfort. All road helmets feature an adjustable fit system that ensures the helmet stays securely attached to your head.

There are a few variations, but the theme is generally the same, a retention system pulls the inside liner webbing together to cradle your head. Many helmets will come with a ratchet dial on the rear that you can adjust. Look for a dial system that can be used easily with one hand, so you don’t have to stop cycling to adjust the fit. Premium lids will also come with height adjustment, offering a better fit for all head shapes.

Chin straps are there to keep your helmet in place, even if you have a fall. These are usually fully adjustable on all helmets.

Liner Padding

Liner padding is essential for comfort while wearing your helmet. It is the part of the helmet that directly contacts your head. If you’re a regular rider then you’ll want quick drying, hydrophilic and anti-microbial padding to help reduce odour. Removable padding is great for a deep clean.

Liner padding is essential for comfort

Ventilation

When choosing a road cycling helmet, ventilation is key for comfort and it will be a big factor in the cost of the lid you choose. The general rule of thumb is the more expensive a road helmet is, the more advanced the ventilation will be, and the more vents you’ll get.

More sophisticated venting systems link deep vent channels from the front through to the rear of the helmet. These channels work to pull cooling air over your head and out through the exhaust ports.

Aero road helmets will limit the use of vents to create a clean, slippery profile to help reduce drag. You can even find helmets with vents you can snap shut if you need an aero boost, or open for breathability. You’ll find that TT lids will have no vents at all because of aerodynamics.

Weight

Wearing a heavy helmet on a long cycle ride is uncomfortable. When it comes to road helmets, the more you spend, the lighter it will be. Helmets can range anywhere from 190g at the premium end of the market to over 600g for entry level models.

Lighter weight helmets tend to offer more comfort

Sizing

It is important to get a helmet that fits correctly. Simply measure the circumference of your head and match it to the helmet size. Do this by placing a tape measure on the centre of your forehead and wrap it around your head above the ears. See our clothing size guide for more details.
