Giro’s newest helmet is a masterpiece. Its simplicity is refreshing. No gimmicks, no frills, just a shell with comfortable interior padding, warm ear flaps, a soft chin strap, a goggle clip and vents in all the right places. But don’t let the simple look fool you; the protective qualities of the Shiv 2 are second to none. A tour of Giro’s sophisticated testing facility shows the company’s true passion for head safety. The Shiv 2 is also specifically designed to let you run your google strap inside the helmet. And if you like rocking tunes while you ride, the helmet is compatible with Giro’s TuneUps system.
