Great entry helmet, but its small so check sizing carefully Jul 23, 2008
Having owned many Giro helmets, and currently having a high end model, this is an excellent Giro for the price. The expensive models really give you huge vent openings, but this one is pretty good. The styling is excellent and the dial fit adjustment is comparable to the RocLoc system of the higher models. If you need a nice bike helmet at a good price, this is certainly a great choice.
However, make sure you measure your head! This is listed as a universal fit Womens model, which is a total joke. I bought this for my 3 year old daughter, who has a head that measures more than mid-way in the fit range, and it fits her great. On the other hand, my wife who wears a medium Giro Monza, a not-uncommon size for many women, could never fit into this helmet and it almost looks like she's trying to fit a kids helmet on her head. Obviously this will fit many women, but don't read "universal sizing" and order without measuring your head. The Skyla fit range is 50 to 57 cm. In comparison, a medium Giro helmet is 55-59cm (Roc-loc limits) because it also has a larger shell. By the way, the Giro Flume children's specific model has the same fit range of the Skyla of 50-57cm, and the Giro Rodeo toddler helmet is 50-55 cm.
When a Womens helmet has almost the same range as a toddler helmet, you know Giro is trying to limit the number of women who will fit into this helmet, forcing many to move up to the more expensive models that come in sizes; and there are some good reasons to buy the expensive models like fit, Roc-Loc system quick adjustability, and increased air flow.
But if your head fits, its a great helmet at a good budget-friendly price.

Lightweight and comfy Oct 22, 2006
By Buena Onda
I bought this helmet in white gold. It's a great helmet, very comfortable and light-weight. I was excited to find a women's helmet that fit me perfectly (many unisex helmets are too big and require adding lots of extra padding).
The flowers are barely visible on the white gold version, but it still looks nice. My only complaint is that when I tried to remove the snap-on visor the shell felt like it was going to break so I just left the visor on.
It's a great value for the price, I really don't even notice when I'm wearing it and I use my bike almost every day.

Light, Breezy and inexpensive Jan 06, 2007
By Happy Yogi
I bought this helment primarily because I needed something and it was inexpensive. I was really surprised that it fit so well and it is so sturdy. In fact it is so comfortable that I often forget I have it on. I highly recommend this helmet

Fits Great Feb 02, 2010
By Phillips Family
My head (measured around where my eyebrows are) is 21 inches. This helmet is too snug on the smallest setting but too big on the largest settings, so it fits me right in the mid-range. It looks pretty well made. It is not a top of the line helmet by any means but is a great buy for the price. I would not try to skimp on a helmet and I feel comfortable with the quality. Plus, it matches my bike.

Rider Recommendations Apr 17, 2008
By Photo Jo
I went to the 2007 RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Bike Ride Across Iowa) as a support crew member, meaning I did the cyclists grocery shopping, set up their tents, that kind of thing. I was just starting to get into the cycling scene, and wanted to observe the different brands of cycling gear the team was using. Most of the guys owned Giro helmets, I was actually overwhelmed by how many of them had them. I had a conversation about the brand with one of the riders over the campfire and he sung its praises. I was skeptical, until the next day one of my teammates wrecked, pretty badly, and he was covered with scrapes and scratches, his helmet was wrecked, but he didn't sustain any head injuries, thank god. He walked away with not even a headache. The next day he went out and bought the same exact helmet again.
When mine came in, I was excited to try it out. The female designs are really cute, and are incredibly adjustable. I have a pretty big head for a female, and I was skeptical that it would fit my melon, but sure enough, if you crank that dial in the back long enough, it will fit. The numerous air slits are awesome too, as it lets your body heat out through your scalp. The only downside to that is you should probably wear a light bandana to avoid tan lines in your scalp. Even if you have long hair. As far as I can tell, the visor isn't removable, which wasn't a selling point for me at first, but it's about the perfect size, it doesn't get in your line of vision, and its just long enough to shade your eyes from the harsh sun. The helmet itself is also incredibly light, it doesn't weigh your head down, and half the time I feel like I'm not wearing anything on my head. I can't wait to road test it at this year's ride. Til then I'll be training with it.
