Ravine Vital Stats
OFF SNOW REVIEW:
Giro Ravine is one of the most striking helmets
available this year. The graphics on the more
expensive version are stunning. The graphics
on the black version are very plain, but the
features are top-of-the-line! My top choice
is the Blue Bomber Girl.
The fit on the Ravine is better for an oval
head, but we've seen it fit a decent amount
of round heads as well. The internal padding
is plush and provides a fantastic level of comfort.
The venting is controlled by a simple to use
sliding switch on the top of the helmet. Push
it forward and you have massive venting available,
pull it back and the vents seal up to provide
you with all the warmth you'd ever need. There
are 8 air intake ports and 2 exit ports to control
the flow of air in and out of the helmet. The
ports are covered with a mesh lining to prevent
snow and ice from creeping in on snowy days.
inside of the helmet is fleece lined for comfort
and also has air chimneys to help direct the
air intake toward the rear of the shell for
The Ravine has a padded chin strap to prevent
chafing and has the standard Giro goggle strap
to help keep your goggles from falling off mid-slope.
The Ravine is CE certified.
If you are looking for a full shell helmet,
with stylish graphics and full of features,
the Giro Ravine SC is the perfect helmet for

me just say that I really wanted to like this
helmet. I like the shape, the venting, the interior….
It just doesn't seem to fit my head well. Maybe
it's my square, I mean, round type head. It feels
like it sits up high, on top of my head, rather
than down on it. Once I got used to that, everything
about this model felt fine.
The top vent is an easy to use slide mechanism.
Forward for venting, which draws air through the
entire liner. Slide it back, which you can do
mid-turn, with gloves on, and it seals out the
cold. Nice. My one concern would be that it might
be over-engineered. I tend to lean towards less
moving parts on my helmets, thank you.
The interior and chin strap are fleece lined for
comfort, and felt great after a long day on the
slopes. Goggles stayed with me the entire time
with the standard goggle strap, but also helped
by the shape of this helmet. This has got to be
one of the more striking designs available.
If you are in the market for a full shell helmet,
look no further than the Giro Ravine SC.

In the case of the Ravine SC™, our World Cup pros
were after bigger vents for more cooling power

So we added Thermostat vents to the Ravine’s sleek

The result is a new standard for cool protection
in a downhill racing-inspired helmet.
