2011 Giro Helmets

2011 giro helmets   2011 Giro Helmets

2011 seems to be a great year for Giro, first they debut the Xar Helmet, but a new retention system called Roc Loc 5 will appear on the 2011 models.

Comparing the Roc Loc 5 to the previous retention device, the Roc Loc 5 is 40% lighter. More importantly, you can adjust the system with one hand, plus better vertical adjustment. Tested well over 6,000 cyclists in the Giro lab, and the verdict was the system is more durable. Six different road and mountain bike helmets will release in 2011 from Giro, which will use the Roc Loc 5.

The 2011 Giro road helmets are the Ionos, Atmos, Advantage 2, and Saros. 2011 Giro mountain helmets include the Xar, Athlon, and Hex.

First off we have Giro flagship helmet, the Ionos, which retails for $235. 2011 Ionos is the lightest (due to the Roc Loc 5) and…

We talked about the 2011 Breezer Cloud 9 29er, but now an official image has released to the press. Originally releasing in 1993, the Cloud 9 took a break for awhile, and 2011 will resurrect the mountain bike. Also releasing alongside is the Jetstream 29er.

The 2011 Breezer Cloud 9 29er uses high modulus carbon fiber, and is tailored to cross country racers and those competing in marathons. Three different packages of the 2011 Cloud 9 will release, a frameset (msrp $1,799), Pro (msrp $2,999), and a Limited Edition (msrp $5,899).

Made for impact, the 2011 Cloud 9 uses Breezer D’Fusion carbon shaping, this allows stress and impact throughout the whole frame, rather than in one location (and could resort to cracking).
