Trickle-down topper.

The rising popularity of helmets such as Giro's Air Attack and Synthe, shown to reduce drag by up to 14% in the right conditions, shines a spotlight on the shift in attention towards aerodynamics in every piece of cycling kit. For those of us who can't quite stomach the cost of those top-end lids, Giro brings us the Foray MIPS Helmet with trickle down aerodynamic technology and industry-leading Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) design at a much more palatable price point.

The big news with MIPS technology is its ability to diffuse certain impact forces in the event of a crash. MIPS comprises a strategically anchored, thin liner on the inside of the helmet that looks exceptionally simple, but serves a big purpose. That little liner is designed to move independently of the helmet shell and reduce impact force compared to standard, non-MIPS helmets.

While the Foray isn't quite as light, as breathable, or as slippery in the wind as the Synthe, it utilizes many of the same technologies in both materials and manufacturing as it's more expensive sibling. It's made with Giro's In-Mold construction, a technique that effectively unifies the helmet's EPS foam liner to a polycarbonate shell, as opposed to simply adhering the two together, creating a lighter, stronger structure.

The helmet also follows Giro's Streamlined Design philosophy, allowing slick style to permeate the functional aerodynamic shape that dictates the helmet's efficiency. Finally, the Roc Loc 5 retention system dials in the proper fit to your head, comfortably and easily, while still being up to 40% lighter than competing systems.

Ready to Ride!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Super excited to have my helmet. Kind of worried about my noggin taking a blow. Love the fit compared to the cheap helmets I usually buy! And the dial really tightens to you head and it's easy to adjust.

Good fit, not super ventilated

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

First of all the helmet fits great, it feels very protective and does not sway or move. The straps are easily adjusted and the inner line too. But the part that I'm not so pleased with is how much I sweat when I wear this thing. Most of my riding is in the early morning before or just after sunrise and even at this time of day I'm feeling warm with it. I can still recommend it and it's an upgrade in protection and looks from what I had,

Giro Foray MIPS helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

Bought this on sale, great price for a MIPS helmet, fit is perfect, very comfortable. With minimum adjustment helmet is barely noticeable. No hot spots on long rides, four hour plus. Ride five times per week in hot, humid weather with no issues.


    This is a great helmet with MIPS. Haven't taken a crash in it, but, it fits well, and should serve it's function!

    Foray fo'real.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    My previous helmet experience is pretty limited to a ski helmet and a super stuffy Bern noggin protector, so I'm fairly certain it was inevitable for me to fall in love with the Foray. Can't beat the price considering the lightweight performance, MIPS technology, and dependable fit. I'm a medium in my women's Smith Vantage helmet and purchased a medium in the Foray and it fit perfectly! Super stoked on this helmet.

    What a great deal!

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    $85 dollars and MIPS!? Wow. The helmet looks great and really comfortable. I have a big head (hat size 7 3/4) and I can get a winter cap underneath this with still some room. It is also lower profile so I dont look silly with a huge mushroom head.

    Giro did a great job on this. If you need a great commuter helmet, back-up helmet or just don't want to spend over $100, this is it... Just sexy!
