Technology SUPER FIT ENGINEERING

Our proprietary Super Fit™ sizing system is based on “human scale factors” data and over 20 years of hand-crafting helmets to fit the best bike riders in the world. By creating helmets in 3 sizes to fit snugly and securely while also matching the human body’s form, our Super Fit sizes comfortably fit up to 98% of the world’s population, yet look (and fit) like they are custom made just for you.

ROC LOC 5 FIT SYSTEM

This groundbreaking fit system provides unmatched 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 almost 40% lighter than comparable systems too, making it the ultimate in skull-hugging luxury.

ROC LOC TT FIT SYSTEM

When every second counts, Roc Loc® TT system offers a faster fit to speed you through transitions. The set-and-forget positioning feature creates a self-adjusting fit with secure feel, and helps to improve aerodynamics by allowing back of the helmet to be closed off to the wind. So you go faster without any hassles or compromises.

ACU DIAL 2 FIT SYSTEM

The Acu Dial™ 2 system combines the convenience of single-handed fit tension adjustment with multiple fit belt anchor points, providing a wider, and finer range of adjustment for maximum comfort. It’s also ponytail-compatible, for riders with longer hair.

ACU DIAL FIT SYSTEM

The original Acu Dial™ system combines the ease of single-handed fit tension adjustment with a full 360° fit band for a quick, stable fit in our line of Universal Fit™ helmets. It’s also ponytail-compatible, for riders with longer hair.

AUTO LOC FIT SYSTEM

Auto Loc™ is a simple, durable self-adjusting fit system designed to take the hassle out of fitting and wearing a helmet. By combining a supple elastic fit band at the back of the helmet with fixed-position straps, it automatically adjusts to cradle your head once you set the system to one of the three different circumference settings. There’s no need to turn a dial or make adjustments to accommodate caps or beanies when the weather changes, and the system also helps to position the helmet properly.

ONESTEP FIT SYSTEM

OneStep™ is a self-adjusting fit system developed with years of research into anatomic data, and designed to take the hassle out of fitting kids’ helmets. By combining a supple, elastic fit band with fixed-position straps, it automatically adjusts to fit the child, and helps to keep the helmet positioned properly. Flashing LED taillights are integrated into the rear of the system for enhanced visibility, too!

IN FORM FIT SYSTEM

The In Form™ system is a low-profile fit and stability system that makes it easy to dial-in the fit and feel of your helmet in seconds – even with gloves on. An ergo-friendly dial at the base of the helmet provides up to 6cm of fit adjustment, and the system also includes a separate vertical turning feature that adjusts the fore/aft tilt of the helmet on your head to enhance peripheral vision and optimize the fit of the helmet with goggles.

UNIVERSAL FIT SIZING

Our Universal Fit™ helmets are sculpted to look good and fit great for almost anyone on the first try. By developing proprietary shell sizes based on specific customer groups, and combining them with an easily-adjustable fit system, it’s easy for you get the right fit, straight out of the box, without the hassle or expense of trying multiple sizes.

76


Technology IN-MOLD CONSTRUCTION

The In-mold construction process permanently fuses a light-yet-durable outer shell with the helmet’s impact-absorbing EPS foam liner, enhancing the strength of both parts. This fusion process reinforces areas around vents and ribs, creating a one-piece ‘exoskeleton’ that allows the helmet to be lighter, more durable, and better ventilated than helmets with shells that are fastened or adhered to the liner.

P.O.V. VISOR

Point Of View™ visors are anchored by a patented internal clutch mechanism that allows 15-degrees of tool-free, on-the-fly vertical adjustment while preventing the visor from rattling and coming loose over rough and technical terrain. They’re also easily removed without tools.

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.

ROLL CAGE REINFORCEMENT

Roll Cage™ is a light-yet-tough web of reinforcement invisibly molded inside a helmet’s EPS foam liner. It helps the helmet to hold together under impact, and provides an extra measure of strength and integrity that you’ll never notice…unless you need it.

THERMOFORMED SL ROLL CAGE

The Thermoformed SL Roll Cage™ is an ultra light polycarbonate skeleton fused into a helmet’s impactabsorbing foam liner. Visible on the bridges between vents, this layer of armor acts like a second shell, enhancing structural support, impact dispersion and penetration resistance while allowing us to carve the biggest vents possible without compromising the helmet’s strength or integrity.

HARD SHELL

Hard shell construction is the traditional method of combining a durable, molded outer shell with an impact-absorbing EPS foam liner. By molding the shell separately from the helmet’s liner, we can optimize the shell material, thickness and finish to create helmets that are tough yet stylish, and ideally suited to the style of riding they’re built for.

X-STATIC FIBERS

X-Static® padding contains a fiber made with layers of pure silver that is permanently bonded to the surface of the fabric. Silver has 100% natural anti-microbial performance that helps to reduce odor and regulate heat, so your helmet stays fresh and comfortable, naturally.

WOMEN’S SERIES

The Women’s Series is a diverse collection of helmet styles, fits and prices tailored to the tastes and needs of female riders. While the level of detail and range of colors is unique within the Women’s Series helmets, they do not feature female-specific headforms. That’s because there is no anatomic difference between women’s and men’s skulls except for a smaller average diameter. And since our Super Fit sizes cover 98% of the human population, and our Universal Fit sizes cover up to 88% of people, we believe the Women’s Series offers a range of options to fit the needs of more female riders than any other brand.

FIT KIT PAD SYSTEM

Our Fit Kit™ pad system allows you to adjust the fit of your helmet in just a few seconds, without any tools. Simply choose the best combination of fit pads from the assortment supplied with the helmet, and swap them out to optimize comfort and stability. It’s fast, easy and allows you to customize the fit of the helmet without hassles.

77


SELECTOR

A tailored approach to aerodynamics. The foundation of aerodynamics is pure and unyielding; every gram of drag devours time and calories. And as the speed increases, so does the air’s appetite. Instead of simply facing this challenge head-on, the Selector™ gives you a new edge in the race of truth – the tail. By combining a smooth front profile with either of two different lower tails, the rider can optimize the helmet for best aerodynamics based on their anatomy, riding position and even course conditions. The result is a helmet that works for you like no other helmet can when every split second counts.

Technology

PRECISION FIT

Giro footwear is built on proprietary cycling-specific lasts to create a fit that hugs the foot closely without binding, crowding or discomfort. Our lasts are hand-crafted specifically for cycling footwear in whole and half-sizes that are differentiated between men’s and women’s shoes, in order to provide the most supportive and precise fit possible in a production shoe.

HIGH-VOLUME FIT

Giro “HV” footwear is built on proprietary, cycling-specific lasts that are specially designed to create a fit that hugs wider or higher-volume feet closely without binding, crowding or discomfort. In order to provide the most supportive and precise fit possible, our “HV lasts are hand-crafted in whole and half-sizes too, so you get the best fit possible in a production shoe.

NEUTRAL PLATFORM

The term Neutral Platform means that there is no tilt or permanent adjustment built-in to our shoes. By maintaining a neutral platform, riders who require wedges or other adjustments are free to choose from a variety of systems that best meet their needs over time, without having to compensate for unnecessary or improper adjustments that can compromise the fit or performance of their shoes, or cause stress to muscles or joints.

SUPERNATURAL FIT SYSTEM

The Giro SuperNatural Fit System combines a cycling-specific footbed with an adjustable arch support kit. The system was developed with input from riders and cycling biomechanics experts, including Retül, the fitter of choice for teams like Garmin-Cervelo and RadioShack, among others. By simply choosing from any of the Low, Medium and High arch supports included in the kit, riders and fitters can independently adjust arch support to enhance fit and pedaling efficiency while reducing or eliminating common discomforts like hotspots, numbness and cramping. The system is available in men’s and women’s sizes, and incorporates X-Static® fibers in the footbed to fight odors and other bacteria.

EASTON ENGINEERED OUTSOLE PLATES

We worked closely with the engineering staff at Easton® to develop proprietary outsoles that provide the most direct, powerful connection to the pedals without compromising comfort. Using advanced modeling and proprietary fixturing in our extensive test lab, every outsole is engineered to provide ideal stiffness in 3 zones: Toe, Arch, and Heel, while maintaining the lowest possible weight and stack-height (as low as 6.5mm). Additionally, the flatter edges of our outsoles allow the shoe upper material to conform to larger or wider feet (what we call the “spillover” effect) without uncomfortable pinching or binding.

160


Technology

RETÜL

Retül is the bike fit system of choice for many elite riders, amateur racers and cycling enthusiasts because it utilizes complete 3-D data analysis to optimize a riders’ biomechanics. Retül’s data-driven approach provides fit technicians with important information that ensures proper positioning of the connection points to the bicycle: shoes, saddle, and handlebars. This type of fit provides riders with the confidence that their equipment is set-up to provide optimal performance, with minimal risk of injury. That’s why we recommend Retül for bike fit and biomechanics advice.

X-STATIC FIBERS

X-Static® fibers are made with layers of pure silver that are permanently bonded to the surface of the fabric. Silver offers 100% natural anti-microbial performance that helps to reduce odor and regulate heat, so your feet stay fresh and comfortable, naturally.

AEGIS MICROBE SHIELD

The Aegis® Microbe Shield is an anti-microbial barrier that permanently bonded with the fabric. It uses the power of a tiny positive electrical charge to inhibit the presence of odor-causing microbes that can cause odor, discoloring or fading, so your shoes stay fresh and odor-free.

TEIJIN MICROFIBER

Teijin® microfiber is widely considered to be the world’s finest synthetic leather. Made in Japan and engineered to provide the same supple feel of the finest natural leathers, it is durable and breathable yet resists moisture, stretching and discoloration that can degrade the fit and feel of shoes over time. It is also available in a wide range of thicknesses and densities that can be optimized to enhance the feel and performance of premium shoes.

SONIC WELDED ARMOR

Sonic welding is a process that uses sonic waves and pressure to fuse two elements together permanently. Utilizing this process to add a layer of armor to soft fabrics results in a more durable bond that is also cleaner and more accurate than traditional adhesives, and lighter too.

WOMEN’S SERIES

The Women’s Series is a complete collection of fits, styles and prices that are uniquely tailored to female riders. Every Women’s Series shoe is available with a level of detail that is unique within the line, and also features specific sizing and patterning in order to support the lower volume and narrower heel of a woman’s foot. The one thing that isn’t different is the level of performance since we use the same top-quality materials and technologies found in our premium men’s shoes. All together, we believe the Women’s Series offers a range of options that suit nearly any need, and with more compelling styles than competing brands.

THE INDEPENDENCE MACHINE by John Lewis

My story is similar to your story, in content, if not geography. The bicycle was small and red, with white painted cranks and white plastic pedals to match its hard rubber tires. Metal seat. The driveway at my grandparents’ bungalow in rural Wales was pitched like a Pyrenee, but in the end that helped divorce the pedaling from the momentum I needed to understand staying upright. I lifted my feet off the ground, gravity and inertia did the rest. I swooped down into the base of the driveway and up the other side. Pure. F@&king. Magic. Excuse the language, but this was an ‘a-ha!’ moment combined with physical exhilaration, combined with triumph and topped with the dawning realization that I was all of a sudden free from certain geographical constraints. Within a day I was riding the little red bicycle from the bungalow up the lane to the family farm, 200 meters away.

174

For three summer weeks, I was everywhere on that machine. When I returned to the States, I became a conquistador of neighborhoods on a purple hand-medown from my brother. Usually when we talk about the independence the bicycle grants us, we mean it in the most basic sense. We are moving under our own power to places we couldn’t (or wouldn’t reach) on foot. But there is more. I received a shiny red BMX bike for Christmas the next year, and I added the woods to my domain. I was airborne. And I was envied, the sweetest ride in the ‘hood. The emancipation was now physical, geographical and social. That bike took me off plywood ramps set up in driveways, but it also carried me to friends’ houses, to backyard football games, to dirt jump sessions on trail systems devised by older kids, out into the world.

When adolescence came for me in the night, there was another bicycle, a metallic blue Panasonic Villager that had belonged to my brother. It was too big for me, but I still managed to ride it to visit girls on hot summer days when their parents were at work. Brand new vistas of experience and independence. Fast forward to big city college and the mountain bike craze. Mine was a white Trek Antelope, with a late-80s crackle finish. Ugly. I hucked a pair of slicks on it and subway, schmubway, the city was mine. For a suburban nowhere kid, these were heady times. There is an intellectual independence that comes from having this kind of access to a town like Boston. You gain access to cultural experiences, art, history, and of course trouble. For a time I was independent from my own common sense. I returned as an adult on a series of road and mountain bikes that took me


over hill and dale, to work and back, to restaurants both cheap and dear. I have now ridden cruisers and track bikes, mountain and road, BMX and trials bikes. Independent turns out to be just the way I like to live. And yet recently I discovered another neat little trick of escapism that the bicycle has been performing for me that I was, heretofore, completely unaware of, the escape from stress. You see, this robot has a day job. It’s fairly mundane as jobs go, but it is not without its peaks and valleys of busy-ness and the stress that goes along with that. Because I would rather be sitting in some pretentious café arguing over whether or not a sprinter held his line in some meaningless race in Western Europe, I end a lot of my 9-to-5s feeling rather pent up. ‘Stressed out’ is the modern term, I think.

Fortunately for me, my bike is locked downstairs. I throw a leg over. I ride away from the office, almost always sprinting the first block just to put some distance between myself and the work day as quickly as possible. Half way home, I’m already thinking about other things, usually the pretty joggers I see along the way, but sometimes about whether it will be worth it to bury myself to catch another cyclist some visible distance up the road.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR John Lewis is a regular contributor to the cycling blog Red Kite Prayer under the name “Robot.” He is a husband, father, cyclist and freelance writer.

By the time of my arrival at home, I am throwing a victory salute to amuse my kids (and embarrass my wife). I am delivered from the eight hours preceding, free from the shackles of modern wage slavery. It’s the not the brain-bending thrill of those first wobbly revolutions when I was a kid. But it’s close.

Technology

SUPER FIT ENGINEERING

Super Fit™ Engineering is a proprietary process that guides the fit, design and patterning of every Giro glove for maximum comfort and performance. By carefully tailoring the palm, fingers and padding zones to match the shape and size of the hand, Super Fit Engineering reduces bunching and discomfort while enhancing grip, bar feel and the effectiveness of the padding. And with as many as six sizes available per model, almost any rider can great pair of gloves to match their needs.

THREE-PIECE PALM CONSTRUCTION

Our unique 3-piece palm construction tailors the fit of our gloves to reduce bunching, and allows your hands to move naturally for enhanced control that doesn’t compromise bar feel. By designing each part of the palm to mimic a hand’s features and articulation, Giro gloves increase grip and provide a superior level of protection for the entire hand.

PITTARDS LEATHER

Select Giro gloves feature Pittards® leathers, including Cabretta (hairsheep) leather chosen for its thin-but-tough structure. Pittards leathers undergo a special tanning process that helps the leather to absorb less water and resist sweat better than other leathers and synthetics. In addition to outstanding performance, no other material provides the fit and comfort of natural leather; it is a difference you will feel the moment you try on a pair of Giro gloves.

CLARINO MICROFIBER

Select Giro gloves feature Clarino™ microfiber which mimics the complex structure of natural leather’s supple feel with enhanced weather resistance and everyday durability. In addition to outstanding performance, Clarino™ is easy to care for, breathable, and remains soft and flexible even in cold and wet conditions, which makes it a great value as well.

AX SUEDE

Giro kids’ gloves feature AX Suede™ microfiber with a supple feel and the durability to be worn every day. In addition to great feel and comfort that mimics natural suede, AX Suede is easy to care for, breathable, and remains soft and flexible even in cold and wet conditions, which makes it a great value as well.

COOL SKIN MICROFIBER

“Cool Skin” is an exceptionally lightweight, vented fabric used in the palm of our LTZ and Rivet gloves. Along with unsurpassed airflow and breathability, it retains good structure and durability to make a lighter, cooler glove with great feel. It’s the closest you can get to a true “second skin”.

THINSULATE XT-S

Select Giro winter gloves feature Thinsulate™ XT-S insulation for exceptional warmth and comfort, with X-Static anti-microbial properties that help to control bacteria and odor. We use more insulation in the top of the gloves to provide warmth from the elements, and a little less in the palm to maintain grip and bar feel without compromising comfort.

FLEX ZONES

Flex zones are carefully integrated into select Giro full-finger glove patterns in order to allow the glove to mimic the hand’s natural articulation without bunching or binding. The result is a glove with a lighter, more natural feel that enhances comfort and control.

206


Technology

HIPORA

Hipora barriers are made of a waterproof film with polyurethane coating and numerous micro pores which block water from the outside, yet allow the moisture generated by the body to exit. Glove liners made with HIPORA® are waterproof, windproof and breathable all at the same time, and will keep hands dry and comfortable when the weather demands it.

PERTEX

Pertex© Shield provides the perfect balance of waterproofness and breathability, with wind- and waterrepellency and flexibility in a light weight material. The fabric combines advanced face fabric technology with a proprietary polyurethane film laminate that reduces internal condensation and increases comfort range. It’s also durable, making it a great choice for riding when the weather turns tough.

MERINO PERFORM

Merino Perform™ Advantage combines the unique, high-performance structure of Australian Merino with synthetics to create modern, lightweight fabrics. The performance benefits of this bi-component structure are enhanced moisture wicking, enhanced cooling, and greater durability with higher tension strength. The unique combination of wool and synthetics in Merino Perform™ Advantage helps to regulate body temperature and enhance comfort, so you can perform at your best.

TECHNOGEL

Technogel® is a proprietary polyurethane cushioning material originally designed for medical applications. It is unique because it molds itself to the body along all three axes, while traditional gel padding materials tend to form along only one axis, which causes pressure to accumulate in one spot over time. In addition to superior pressure distribution (up to 300% better than standard gel) it also absorbs up to 30% more impact energy, and it does not harden or break down over time. So it stays supple and comfortable mile after mile, and enhances your comfort and control.

PORON XRD

Poron® XRD™ is a soft, shock-absorbing material specifically engineered to absorb up to 90% of impact energy, without a loss of performance from repeated impacts. Using “intelligent molecules”, Poron XRD remains supple and flexible until impacted, when the molecules lock together immediately to deflect and help absorb shock. Other benefits include “open cell, breathable” performance with antifungal properties, and no use of latex, PVCs, VOCs, or heavy metals.

SONIC WELDED ARMOR

Sonic welding is a process that uses sonic waves and pressure to fuse two elements together permanently. Utilizing this process to add a layer of armor to soft fabrics results in a more durable bond that is also cleaner and more accurate than traditional adhesives, and lighter too.

WOMEN’S SERIES

The Women’s Series is a diverse collection of styles, fits and prices tailored to the tastes and needs of female riders. Not only is the level of detail and range of colors unique within the Women’s Series gloves, but they also feature female-specific sizing and patterning. That’s because most women’s hands have less volume, a narrower palm and finger lengths that differ from men’s hands. All together, we believe the Giro Women’s Series offers a range of options to fit the needs of more female riders than any other brand.

RED HOOK CRIT by Nathan Trimble

For three years prior to March 26, 2011 my older brother has been relentlessly beseeching me to come out to his race and for three years I have been unable to make it. I had heard story after story and read article after article on the Red Hook Crit and watched it grow to new heights every year from afar. What enticed me about Red Hook, other than its involvement with my family, was the spirit of the race. No categories, no sanctions, no gears, no bullshit. Just racers having fun, battling it out and tearing ass through the streets. After countless emails of pictures and race articles from Dave and the rest of the family for three years, I was determined. This year I was going to make it come hell or high water. I really didn’t know what to expect from myself given the level of competition of riders and how technical the course was. I had ridden one short season of collegiate track so I was at least semi-competent on a track bike but had

208

never ridden one on the road until race weekend. I knew I was in decent shape but hadn’t raced in almost five months and was less than confident in my fixie cornering ability, especially against the likes of some of New York’s finest alley cat racers. I figured my chances stood somewhere between winning the race and getting dropped in the first corner. When Saturday night arrived, the atmosphere was incredible. Tons of fans were there despite the cold weather, and everyone looked concentrated and ready to race. After a couple of cold, slow neutral laps, I started to get amped up. Dave started calling the big racers up. My name came last. He had enough faith in me to give me a family call-up in my first Red Hook Crit and I was determined to give it hell and prove I deserved it. Waiting for the megaphone was intense. I knew the start was crucial and the fans were already getting rowdy. I was shaking from a combination of cold and adrenaline.

It was a feeling I knew well. It was time to race. After the megaphone sounded I immediately went full gas. My start went flawlessly and I immediately found myself right at the front away from the inevitable chaos behind me. My cornering ability was subpar but good enough to stay at the front without too much difficulty. After a couple of laps, the first move went. It was eventual fifth place rider Gerald Adasavage. I followed his wheel and before I knew it we had a gap. We lasted about one lung busting lap before the charging peloton caught us. Soon after another rider attacked and was followed by two more. This was one of the few riders I recognized: Neil Bezdek. Neil and I had carpooled to NY together and I knew he was fast. Along with him was Dan Chabanov, another rider I knew and revered, and a rider I didn’t recognize but who looked strong. This was the move. I knew it, and I knew that if I wanted to have a chance,


I had to be in that group. Before I could muster the strength to respond, they had opened a decent gap of around fifty meters. My legs were burning from my break with Gerald, but I knew my choice was to either bury myself now and catch them, or watch them ride away and regret it forever. I dug deep and pulled them back an inch at a time. By the time I caught on, I looked behind and realized no one had followed me. We were away. The next few laps I was stinging from the bridge up and was literally going cross-eyed with the pain and the effort of staying with these obviously strong riders. Every lap for the next ten minutes I felt like I was going to get dropped. Every lap, however, the chants and screams of a dozen family members cheering drove me on. I had been given a call up and I was not going to disrespect the race by squandering it.

After our gap on the field had widened to a relatively comfortable margin, our pace became somewhat more manageable and I started to feel more comfortable. We worked together until two to go when Neil launched an attack. I again went cross-eyed with agony to get on his wheel and we were one group again. Knowing I was out gunned for the sprint and my cornering was shit compared to these very fast and very skilled men, I mustered what little I had left and attacked through the start finish area on the start of the bell lap. My last ditch effort went nowhere. My breakaway companions were simply too strong. I managed to hang on with them until the final sprint around the final corner. Dan, Al, and Neil screamed through the gravely, bumpy hairpin faster than seemed possible. I attempted to follow them but was foiled by my own inexperience as I initially took it too sharp and ended up having to swing out wide. As I came out of the corner I looked

up and they were gone. I had blown it at the end of the last lap. As I crossed the line in fourth I was happy with my performance at my first Red Hook Crit and happy I was able to hang with such strong riders but definitely disappointed in the finale. It was a great race: aggressive, fun, and hard as hell, and I gave it my all, but I was definitely left hungry for more. This certainly won’t be my last effort at Red Hook. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Nathan Trimble is the younger brother of David Trimble, who is the founder and promoter of the RedHook Crit. He will be coming back next year to challenge for the win.

CLASSIC COTTON CAP Show your colors with classic style. A simple cotton cycling cap might be the most versatile accessory a rider can have. A bit of shade from the sun, a cover from wind and rain, a layer of insulation when it’s cool, and it wicks sweat when the heat rises... Our Classic Cotton Cap is thin enough to fit under helmets, enough style to be worn off the bike too. We’ve also shortened the brim compared to some caps, for better upper peripheral vision without reducing the ability to block sun and rain.
