Giro Xen: 9.3 / 10

The GoodAdvantages:

  • Comfortable
  • Light
  • Very good fit
  • Removable POV visor
  • Good ventilation

The BadDisadvantages:

  • No bright, high visibility colors

As you can see, I really like the Giro Xen. The lack of bright colors is strange, but shouldn't be a deciding factor if you otherwise like this helmet. You can add to a helmet's visibility anyway. And you should, whether it is brightly colored or not. Use some reflective tape, reflective stickers or stick a blinking LED on your helmet.

The removable visor of the Giro Xen is practical, and can be adjusted on the fly. It's very similar to the Bell Sweep in this regard. The Giro Xen helmet has 17 vents. They provide enough ventilation to keep your head cool in the summer. The helmet comes in three sizes, so be sure to pick the right size when you order it. Different sizes, combined with Giro's easy to use adjustment system, almost ensure a perfect fit.

Giro Xen helmet is available in the following six colors:

Giro Xen Helmet, Matte BlackGiro Xen Helmet, Brown Fabric "G"Giro Xen Helmet, Matte Olive Fade

You can buy Giro Xen on Amazon or ChainReactionCycles. The older 2007 and 2008 models are still available at the time of writing. They are cheaper, but you won't find all the colors and sizes. If you like how the Giro Xen looks, go ahead and buy it. I'm sure you won't regret it. It's so comfortable that you might forget that you're wearing a helmet.
