Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Designed with the clean, old school, bucket lid style of street-ready skate helmets, the Giro Shiv 2 Helmet looks un-fussed and awesome, and it's loaded with modern features to make it ultra comfy. First off, it's lightweight. The In-Mold construction fuses a burly polycarbonate outer shell with the inner foam lining, helping it keep a low profile on your head while meeting safety requirements for skiing and snowboarding. You get a custom fit with 3 sets of pads, ensuring your Giro helmet is not too tight, not too loose, but juuuuuuust right. The pads attach to the helmet with Velcro strips for easy swapping. If you're out on a sunny spring day and you want to cool off your head, the Shiv 2 has 8 Super Cool vents to keep the fresh air moving through. If you're heading into a February blizzard, then unroll the little Weatherstrip Vent Shields to cover each one up, sealing out the weather and keeping your head cozy. Whether you like to hit the line of kickers under the chair lift, or freestyling the powder lines is more your style, you and your head will love the Giro Shiv 2 Helmet.

Utilitarian and sleek, the Shiv Helmet from Giro was designed with nothing but the cleanest lines and a pared-down profile while sacrificing nothing in terms of comfort. Starting at the interior, the Fit Kit pad system and interior subliner allow you to completely dial in the fit. Your head gets ample ventilation with the Super Cool Vents system that pulls cool, fresh air into your helmet.

With riders like Antti Autti, Andy Finch, and Gretchen Bleiler wearing the Giro Shiv Helmet, you know this skate-influenced brain bucket will protect your skull without making you look like an egg-headed tool. The interior sub-liner allows you to adjust the padding or remove it completely to make room for a beanie. Run your goggles on the inside for an even lower profile look.
