The Giro Shiv Snowboard Helmet may look pretty straightforward, but the beauty of this product comes from the careful attention to detail and high quality material, not gimmicky looks on the outside. For starters, the high quality molded Polycarbonate material makes for a surprisingly lightweight feel while still providing amazing protection and reliability. Match this with the interior subliner for comfort and it is quite clear that the Shiv aims to deliver a performance that satisfies riders of all kinds.
I love this helmet because it's simple and everything I wanted in a helmet. I wasn't attracted to all the different shapes or helmets like the army one or the one with the visor. It saved my head a few times so this is always a good investment. The only thing I don't really like about this helmet is the fact that the ear pieces are NOT removable like other helmets. Besides that, this helmet is sick and it will save your life!
I used this helmet for one season. I ordered it at a medium (size of old helmet) and I have to remove the padding to make it fit. I would strongly recommend getting a beanie to go under it.
Asides from the obvious, protection it provides, this helmet is very basic. Comes with a second set of thicker inner layer cushion offering minimal adjustment for fitment. The ventilation is not very effective and can get quite hot and sweaty wearing it.
My little brother got this helmet last year before the snow. He used it for two weeks an loved it. His has black leather around the outside of the helmet which might wear tear if it scrapes something hard. But it does what a snowboard helmets supposed to do which is protect your head and keep it warm!
It's a decent helmet, nothing too special but the price is quite fair. It's nice that it doesn't weigh down on your head but it does get pretty warm, a bit too warm if you're out there shredding all day long.
It is warm and protective but has an awkward shape to it.
I wear a beanie and this and it is awesome. Great fit has many vents on the top to keep your head from sweating but also keeps you warm. Good Padding but you might have to take some of them because it makes your head look huge other than that great helmet.
