The Giro Discord provides the precise fit you need and the softshell you’ve been looking for. If you’re one to hit the slopes with freestyle or backcountry riding in mind this is a great day-to-day option. Versatility, durability and comfort meet here.
I have been testing this helmet for the past couple months down here in Arizona and New Mexico (yes it snows here on El Nino years..) and wanted to share some feedback on this sweet helmet :
Giro Discord Review
The Giro Discord has a generous amount of padding on the inside designed with a proprietary dual density vinyl nitrile (VN) liner on the inside – no joke the insulated interior is made to cushion your fall if ever you have impact.
There’s nothing more important than a good fit and a comfortable feel and you’ll have it especially over your ears with removable pads that help you customize the inside just for your head. Then there’s a specialized fit system that includes a spandex-like strap just behind your head (kinda like a flexfit hat). Not to mention the openings that sit on top of the helmet so you can adjust your dome temperature with one simple slide of the thermostat vents.
The Giro Discord helmet sits up a little higher on your head so you can still see even when wearing a helmet and has a tiny brim which further makes this feel more of a hat than a helmet… cool with me!
The best part of the Giro Discord has got to be the softshell construction. I personally don’t like to wear a helmet…. Messes up my vibe. There’s nothing that irritates me more than having something uncomfortable messing up the way I feel when I ride but the fact that you can actually see the helmet flex when you push it let’s you know that it’s going to be comfy.
The innovative outer shell of the Giro expanded my mind to the freedom of what a helmet can offer. Like I said, I’m not a fan of a helmet but I know that sometimes I simply need it. And this is the one met all my needs… cause you know I gotta’ have my tunes too!
Put the Giro Discord on your head and get out there.
