GIRO SOFT SHELL CONSTRUCTION DESIGNED FOR DURABILITY Last season we created a revolutionary new category in helmets with the innovative design of Giro Soft Shell Construction. The introduction of the award winning Combyn offers riders a bold, new choice in helmet technology, designed to meet the demands of today’s freestyle riders and terrain. For this season, we’re offering a new unisex Soft Shell style: The all-new fully featured Discord as well as the evolved Combyn. Both feature incredible comfort, a flexible fit, and unmatched durability that make Soft Shell construction unique and the exclusive choice of top freestyle riders and Giro global team athletes. Built to meet the globally recognized CE EN1077 standard, our Soft Shell helmets are also designed to better manage low-energy, day-to-day impacts. This is achieved with our patent-pending, impact-absorbing liner made with dual density Vinyl Nitrile (VN) and our proprietary flexible outer-shell material. Employing two distinct types of VN foam in the liner, the helmet is able to manage both high-and low-energy impacts – delivering extraordinary comfort and durability that stands up to the punishment of progression and on-hill action. *Please note that all helmets have limits

FLEXIBLE OUTER SHELL Made of a specially formulated proprietary plastic blend, the shell flexes with the VN liner rather than cracking like traditional ABS.

DISCORD REIGN SUPREME An all-new offering in our innovative Soft Shell category, the Discord helmet expands your options for freestyle freedom and expression in natural terrain. Built for progressive freestyle and backcountry riding, where day-to-day impacts are inevitable, the Discord combines our patent-pending, impact-absorbing dual density Vinyl Nitrile (VN) liner with a proprietary, flexible outer shell resulting in an ultra-durable, flexible, and comfortable helmet for both high and low-energy impacts.

COMBYN DESIGNED FOR DURABILITY The low-profile, skate-inspired Combyn pioneered our Soft Shell category and it’s back to offer freestyle fiends an amazing option for pushing their progression everywhere on the mountain from the park to the pipe. Soft Shell Construction means the Combyn is purpose-built to withstand the imminent impacts of jibbing, jumping, hiking, and traveling; this is due to its patent-pending, impact-absorbing dual density Vinyl Nitrile (VN) liner and proprietary, flexible outer shell material. The result is a perfect balance of comfort, durability, and cutting edge design that meets the needs of today’s most demanding freestyle riders with the ability to manage both high and low energy impacts.

In addition to advanced technology, the Combyn offers clean, standout looks and sleek Super Cool vents plus Seamless Compatibility with all Giro EXV goggles and aftermarket audio systems.

SEE THE DIFFERENCE Giro’s awe-inspiring EXV technology creates increased peripheral vision and offers an overall expanded field of view while keeping the goggle frame compact and wearable. And from the inside looking out the advantages of EXV are evident. Equipped with world class Lenses by ZEISS, EXV goggles offer unobstructed, panoramic views and crystal clear premium optics. That’s why we’re offering this advanced technology in even more styles for 2015: The original high-end spherical Onset, the slightly more compact Compass, designed proportionally for smaller faces; and its womenspecific counterpart, the Field. The team-designed Blok also packs EXV in the classic contours of its cylindrical design.

Cushy triple-layer face foam plus its seamless GIRO helmet compatible design make the Compass a top choice for skiers and riders looking for a slightly more compact yet full-featured EXV style.

THE NINE LEGACY REINVENTED For more than a decade, the Nine has been a keystone staple in the Giro line and is the product that started it all in lightweight performance in-mold construction snow helmets. The Nine evolved over the years with iconic and defining styles like the G9 and Nine.10. As the ongoing evolution of this legacy design continues, we are proud to offer three new iterations of this classic helmet, reinvented for 2015. For men, the Nine, for women, the Era, and for groms, the Nine Jr. All feature an updated, streamlined low profile design, Thermostat Control and a full array of functional features that have made the Nine Giro’s most enduring and popular designs.

SHRED READY

READY TO RIP

We couldn’t hook all the adults up with a new Nine design and leave out the groms, so we built them the Nine Jr. It’s a new youth style that packs the same fit, function, comfort and safety features of the adult models in a scaled-down, kid-size version. From linking first turns on the groomers to charging the park at full-speed, the Nine Jr. offers young skier and riders everything they want in an all-mountain helmet while also pleasing their parents.

This sleek, easy-wearing new kids helmet features our finest performance technologies in a lightweight yet durable design. Finding the perfect fit is simple—we’ve outfitted the Launch with two In Form youth size options.
