About this deal

This means that the airflow over the head isn’t quite as good and I felt a bit warm on hot days when climbing at lower speeds. A serious amount of Wind Tunnel vents, 25 in fact, are dotted around this helmet adding to this helmet’s svelte image and adding extra ventilation. Giro Savant Helmet offers authentic race-inspired style and performance with a plush, comfortable fit that’s ready to go the distance. Still, I figured 10 years was long enough, especially considering it was the cheapest helmet I could find at the time. Paul started writing for Cycling Weekly in 2015, covering cycling tech, new bikes and product testing.

Most impartial experts recommend anywhere between 5-10 years – some say even more as long as the helmet is well-kept and hasn’t been crashed. Recently, I examined the manufacture date inside my old helmet and realized it was nearly 10 years old. Straight away I realised, although not superlight, this is still a light helmet, at 238 grams in size medium, I soon forgot I was wearing it at all.The Savant resembles many of Giro’s higher end helmets – and carries a surprising level of technical features for a helmet that sits near the bottom of the lineup. Unfortunately we cannot consider an item to be lost until 15 working days has passed (according to Royal Mail procedure). The slim shape combines impressive ventilation thanks to 25 Wind Tunnel vents, and the comfortable convenience of the adjustable Roc Loc 5 fit and stability system.

While it provides the same level of protection as other helmets in the test, comfort on long rides can be an issue. The Giro Savant Road Bike Helmet has been designed to give you race inspired performance at unbeatable value. If we have supplied the correct product, it is not faulty or it is outside of the 14 days we can not be liable for your postage charges. So, a few rides later and I still cannot quite believe how such an affordable helmet could offer so many outstanding features. The Savant™ offers authentic race-inspired style and performance with a plush, comfortable fit that’s ready to go the distance.

With the performance characteristics of their higher-end models, you can be assured of long-lasting comfort with minimised drag to push you through your rides.

All refunds will be given as soon as possible, and usually take the form of a refund transaction onto the card used for the original purchase.While those may have more space-age materials, equating to lighter weight and greater comfort, the level of protection provided will be just about the same as the mid-range Savant’s.

The Savant is not the most comfortable helmet we tested, scoring a 6/10, but it is far from the worst. Before he deleted it, his Twitter was followed only by his mother and UCI President David Lappartient. When pulled tight there is far too much excess strap under the buckle – enough that it flapped in the wind as we rode.You may think safety and style do not go hand in hand, well with the Giro Savant helmet you may think again. Data Integrity - this system checks the data being transferred to ensure it has not been altered during tranfer. The new Roc Loc 5 system is the newest iteration of Giros's fit adjustment system and it works really well. Many helmets we tested have a fixed retention system - the Specialized Airnet being a good example - but higher quality padding goes along way to compensate.
