Our first Air Attack™ was a revelation in styling and performance for all types of riding. Inspired by the original, the new Air Attack™ Shield delivers a dose of free speed. Its compact, lightweight and super-aerodynamic design slices through air to deliver a hyper-efficient ride.
GIRO AIR ATTACK
I’ve had a long term relationship with Giro after being involved in a biking accident some 20 years ago. The Giro Air Attack looks like something out of Robo Cop which challenges your typical helmet/sunglasses combination. The helmet specifically increases cooling power and reduction of the air resistance. The aerodynamics of the Air Attack is unmatched and you will not just look but be faster on the bike. The wind/air seems to just roll of the helmet which reduces the drag aerodynamically. The Eye shield attaches magnetically to the helmet and gives you the appearance of wrapping around the face which makes the removal or put on easier and safer. The 6 vents are strategically placed with internal channels to optimize the flow of air on the head for maximized cooling efficiency and enhanced performance. The Roc Loc Air Fit system is updated to suspend the helmet on the head to increase comfort and temperature regulation. The polycarbonate exoskeleton is a thermoformed Roll Cage that is molded to the EPS foam liner to increase protection, dispersion and shock absorption. The helmet padding reduces static and bacteria growth which also help keeps odors away. Roc Loc System quickly adjusts on the head for proper tension and vertical head fit giving you peace of mind and laser focus. The Giro Air Attack is the fastest and lightest helmet I used this year (and most stylish). It makes me feel faster and is aerodynamically designed to maximize air flow, comfort and eye protection all at the same time.
