Giro Saros, 291g review

Giro, CA helmets test 2013
Cycling Weekly Verdict

The rounded front might not appeal to racing types, but for those looking for comfortable head protection for long summer sportive rides, the Saros is a top choice thanks to comfortable padding, excellent ventilation and a fit that means you'll forget you're wearing it. Other, bolder colours are available.

    Rounded front may not appeal to all

In present company the Saros seems a little demure but it still has plenty to shout about.

The comfortable Roc Loc cradle system offers three vertical positions and the dial adjuster feels well made while offering a decent range of adjustment.
