The Hex™ fuses a muscular, progressive style with the versatility of a trail riding helmet. It’s stocked with all the features you need for the mountain, including the sure comfort and stability of Roc Loc® 5 and tool-free adjustment of our P.O.V.™ visor. Many riders swear it’s the best all-mountain helmet for the money, hands-down.
In-mold construction fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet’s impact-absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows us to sculpt better ventilation systems, so In-mold helmets can be lighter and cooler than traditional helmets.
Point Of View visors are anchored by a patented internal clutch mechanism that allows 15-degrees of tool-free, on-the-fly vertical adjustment while preventing the visor from rattling and coming loose over rough and technical terrain.
ROC LOC® 5
After more than two-years of development, Giro introduces Roc Loc 5. This groundbreaking fit system provides an entirely unique user experience with an unmatched level of comfort, stability, adjustability and weight savings. With Roc Loc 5, you can easily dial-in both fit tension and adjust vertical position with a single hand. Just twist the dial for a tighter feel on rough terrain, then back it off a notch and relax across the flats or a warm climb. Even with these remarkable features, Roc Loc 5 is still nearly 40-percent lighter than its popular predecessor, Roc Loc 4.
Micro Dial: The heart of Roc Loc 5 is this ratcheting, micro-adjusting dial. A simple, two-finger twist of the Micro Dial opens or closes the retention system and each click is audible.
Three-Position Bracket: It’s never been easier to change vertical positions and fine-tune fit. We incorporated a three-position bracket that features 15-millimeters of up/down movement. Like the Micro Dial, this system can be adjusted without removing the helmet. Carefully-crafted ergonomic arms are shaped to be as comfortable as possible, yet work flawlessly with Giro eyewear (what we call Super Fit engineering).
Dual Pods: These two panels are designed to firmly grasp the back of your head while comfortably cradling the occipital lobe.
Strap Baskets: With Roc Loc 5, your helmet straps are always right where you need them. Not to mention this strap basket brings a new level of comfort.
WIND TUNNEL™ VENTILATION
Giro helmets are developed utilizing our proprietary Wind Tunnel™ ventilation system, which combines active vents with internal exhaust channels that thrust cool, fresh air over and around the riders head-while forcing heat and stale air out. This significant increase in air channeling makes a difference that riders will immediately feel and appreciate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CommuterDrone Too expensive for what it is
I got one of these in 2009 with a discount. I'm amazed that the current price (2014) is three times what I paid back then. It's a nice helmet - just not *that* nice.
It has a cheapish feel, with a lot of exposed "polystyrene" (or whatever it is) rather than being fully enclosed in quality shiny plastic, which you'd hope for at this price. The strap is a pretty nasty scratchy material too. The visor is adjustable but is too high even at the lowest position to be much use. I adapted mine with some epoxy glue so it does a better job of keeping the rain off.
On the plus side the straps can be removed and thrown into the washing machine. Fiddly to put back on but well worth it to avoid a smelly head I reckon.
Durability is excellent - it still looks good after five years of use most week days. The foam pads are starting to come apart but the velcro is still holding them in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cooper66 Fantastic helmet
Always had giro e2 helmets , thought I would try the giro hex and wasn't disappointed great fit. I have a small head and this size 51-55 small fits like a glove easy to adjust , only niggle is that the straps need messing about with and are a pain to get right . Overall a quality helmet with a great finish.
