Giro Saga Helmet - Women's

Keeping your skull and bank account safe

Featuring many of the same materials and technologies as Giro’s top-of-the-line Synthe, the Saga Helmet offers a lightweight, aerodynamic option for those of us who demand performance that doesn’t break the bank. The Saga features In-Mold construction, a process that unifies the EPS foam liner to the polycarbonate shell to create a structure that is lighter, stronger, and ultimately safer. The Saga offers a sleek aerodynamic shape and offers 22 Wind Tunnel vents to keep you cool and comfortable. Giro’s Roc Loc 5 retention system is 40% lighter than the previous version and allows you to the adjust tension and vertical position of the helmet with the simple turn of a dial, making it super easy to find the perfect fit.

The Price Got Me!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Let me preface this, I have yet to crash with this helmet so I can't tell you how it performs under pressure but so far it's a great helmet. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because my head gets hot with this on, its likely due to the large amount of hair I have and not the helmet's fault but I want more airflow. Otherwise the price was right and so far its stayed on my head and makes me look safe!

B & B - Budget Minded, Big Performance

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Let's face it, cycling may be rewarding, but it's not exactly cheap. This helmet will ease the budget while protecting your noggin, looking cool and the lighter weight will have you thinking you spent more than you did. No issues with the sizing--safe to use the size chart as your guide. And, Backcountry.com is always offering some sweet deals to watch for, stretching your dollar even further (hit me up for dollar-saving tips on top gear, klindsey@backcountry.com).

can't beat that deal

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

for the money you can't get a better deal. Giro makes a great helmet, it fits well, pretty standard with all giro helmets, same sizing as my other giro and bell helmets. It rides comfortably and is relatively light, no issues after 50+ mile ride.
