Pro A great helmet for long rides
This helmet is very lightweight (8-10 oz, depending on the size), which is great for longer rides because it prevents muscle fatigue in your neck. It has 25 vents, which will keep your head cool even on more strenuous rides.
Pro Easy to maintain clean
The inner pads are attached with velcro, so you can remove them and throw them in the washing machine for more sweat-free rides.
Con Uncomfortable straps
The straps don't lie flat , and it can be difficult to adjust them right. There have been complaints about the straps digging into the back of the neck.
Con Slightly louder at high speeds
When compared to similar helmets at a higher price, the Giro Savant is louder due to the design of the vents. Although Giro have put a lot of emphasis on keeping you cool in the Savant, they have also made riding at high speeds rather noisy as the wind flows through the vents.
