Innovative protection for the urban grind.

Ideally suited for urban commutes, casual road rides, and around-town jaunts, the Giro Aspect Helmet fuses functional, utility-driven design with upscale materials and proven impact protection. Inspired by the aero aesthetic of race cars, the Aspect's aggressively sculpted ventilation not only stands apart from other pedestrian, urban-specific helmets, but also keeps your head pleasantly cool on hot summer days. The removable soft visor keeps your vision unobstructed from bright sunshine and the elements, while luxuriously soft Ultrasuede padding boosts overall comfort.

Though its functional design lends itself to urban commuters, the Aspect's lightweight protection comes courtesy of its In-Mold polycarbonate shell fused to an impact-dampening EPS liner. Injection-molded rubber or aluminum side panels add upscale appeal without sacrificing protection in the event of a crash. Moreover, the Roc Loc Air fit system dials in a precise fit with the quick twist of a dial.

Matte black delamination

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had this helmet for two years now, and have worn it basically every day for commuting and longer rides. I will say that it's light, breathable, and while it was holding together it looked pretty snazzy. I never used the visor but it felt like good quality, and overall the materials are very pleasing to the touch and eye.

That being said, about 6 months ago the whole thing started falling apart. The thin plastic shell delaminated from the rest of the helmet, turning into useless strips that flapped against the foam in the wind. I ended up ripping two of these off because they were so annoying (and you can see from the picture that the rest are delamming too), so honestly the thing is probably useless in a crash at this point (not to mention no longer waterproof). I never took a spill in it, and I don't think I treated it indelicately. I might've gotten a dud, but I'm pretty unhappy with the quality.

Another thing that never worked was the rubber strip meant to hold the excess webbing for the chin strap in place; this always slipped and is a bit of a nuisance to deal with.

All in all, I love the aesthetic and I think it functioned quite well on longer rides, but I can't recommend it due to the delamination.

Great helmet, awkward chin strap.

I ordered the matte black in medium and it fits perfectly but with my 23 inch head there's not much room under the helmet if you want to wear a cap in the winter. I love the fit, the adjustment system, and the style. The one thing I don't like is the chin strap. No amount of adjustment has gotten the right side to lay flat around my ear. I thought maybe the strap would settle in after a few wears but it hasn't and now I'm disappointed I didn't return it when I couldn't adjust it before wearing it out on a few rides. After this winter I'll likely be looking for a new helmet because while I like this one, the strap will drive me nuts, and I've seen other, better designs that won't have this issue.

Sort of

I am a sucker for unique design. I have an Aeon and Air Attack for rides down the coast or high wind rides. This helmet is interesting, fits wonderfully and looks good. The padding against your forehead is comfortable; but I did notice on the climb it was less comfortable than either the Aeon or Air Attack. Not sure why. Some of the things I don't like are the very soft, thin chin straps. The strap is so thin it will fold over and the colors offered are atrocious. I looked at the white model but who in the world wants a piece of aluminum on the side and the orange/red is pumpkin like. That leaves black which I don't think is safe on a bike and charcoal or bundge. I bought the charcoal model; but would have preferred blue or white/blue. I'll keep the helmet and even wear it around as I like the style but it could be improved with a better chin strap and color offerings. As for replacing those pads, good luck with that.

I was a little skeptical how cool this would keep my head with how few vents there are, but the RocLoc really kept my head cool. Sitting slightly off your head, air really travels right through. This helmet was very comfortable, and light weight. Looks great with a kit, or with street clothes for a trip to the store.

Love this helmet!

    Super comfortable, casual-cool. Riding it dirt and road...and getting tons of compliments on it. RocLoc Air keeps the helmet cooler than most other designs, despite the low vent count.
