Giro: Incredible Bike Shoes, Shirts, Helmets & Apparel

Further, faster, and better, Giro is the gear that gets you there. Giro was founded more than 30 years ago by Jim Gentes, a man with an obsession for design and answering unmet needs. That obsession led him to start making his own products, and ultimately resulted in a company committed to serving the rider through personal expression and advanced performance. The world has changed dramatically in the past three decades, but Giro has remained steadfastly committed to serving enthusiast riders.


Giro is and always will be a product brand. Their designers argue for weeks about the smallest details in order to ensure that every bike helmet, bike glove, piece of bike apparel, and bike shoe they produce is nearly flawless. Giro is a brand that truly sweats the details, and it's this attention to detail that sets them apart. They believe that riding is more than just a fleeting hobby or a passing fad: riding is the best part of a great life and your equipment deserves attention to the smallest of details. Because you keep climbing, Giro will keep making the gear that gets you there.


At, we love Giro for the incredible quality and performance that goes into everything they make. If you're interested in some of our favorite Giro products, check out the Syntax Mips Helmet, the Men's Chrono Expert Rain Jacket, the Women's Base Liner Halter Bib Short, and the Men's Imperial Bike Shoe.

 Questions & Tips

Q: How do I choose the right helmet?

The best helmet we can recommend is the one that meets these three criteria:

• It fits your head comfortably and securely

• It offers the most coverage youre comfortable with

• It meets the most relevant standards for the type of riding you enjoy.

Design, features and price can also be considerations, but those are personal choices that we cant provide guidance on.

By asking this question, we recognize that you may be seeking to understand what the safest helmet is for you. Theres a reason we cant provide the simple answer youre seeking: Every impact is a unique event, and we cant predict how youre going to impact the helmet. See Whats the Safest Helmet? for more information on this question.

Q: What is MIPS Technology and how does it work?

The Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is a low-friction liner inside the helmet that helps to reduce rotational energy to the brain in an angled impact. The MIPS system allows the helmet to rotate independently around your head, redirecting impact energy and providing more protection in certain impacts.

Based on what we have observed from our own testing and from review of MIPS data, we believe that helmets equipped with MIPS can provide more protection in certain impacts. Research into the effectiveness of this technology, and how to further improve it, is ongoing and we are at the forefront of this work. For now, we are believers in the potential of this technology to enhance protective capability of helmets.

Q: How often should a helmet be replaced? Is it OK to use old helmets?

We make a general recommendation of replacing a helmet every three to five (3-5) years depending on use and handling. This is based on observation of the average user, and factors like wear over time, weather, handling, the potential for degradation from personal care products like sunscreen or bug spray, and the simple fact that helmets do improve over time.

While helmets kept in good condition can provide protective capability beyond the 3-5 year recommended lifespan, its also true that they can degrade over time. This is why we recommend replacing the helmet within this regular interval.

If you fall and the helmet is impacted, you should have the helmet inspected or replace the helmet immediately, even if no damage is visible. The reason is that helmet liners are made to absorb energy from impacts and they do this through their own degradation or destruction – like an airbag in a car. If the liner is compromised from an impact or other factors, it may not offer the full protective capability it was designed to provide.

Q: Which pedals are compatible with Giro shoes?

Giro shoes have been designed to be compatible with the most popular clipless pedal and cleat systems or flat pedals, depending on the type of riding they are intended for. To ensure compatibility, please read the instructions provided with your pedals to confirm specifications and proper installation, maintenance recommendations and adjustment of the cleat and pedal system. Note that some pedal systems may require the use of an adapter.

If you have additional questions about pedal compatibility, please contact your authorized Giro dealer or our Customer Service group for assistance.

Q: How do I clean and care for Giro shoes?

When properly cared for, your new Giro cycling shoes will offer many miles of performance.

• To clean shoes covered in mud, dirt or road grime, wipe them clean with a damp sponge or cloth.

• Never clean shoes in the washing machine.

• Do not clean your shoes using strong detergents or abrasive pads or brushes.

• Do not expose your shoes to extreme heat. Using a fire, radiator, blow dryer or other heat source to dry your shoes can damage them and void warranty.

• Shoes and pedals may not engage properly in cleats that are dirty or worn. Regularly check cleats and cleat area for dirt or debris and replace worn cleats as needed or recommended by pedal manufacturer.

• If shoes become wet, you can stuff them with newspaper to help absorb moisture and maintain shape. In most cases newspaper will dry wet shoes overnight.
