Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Giro - very happy with customer service

I purchased a Giro Atmos helmet from an online vendor and when I got it I noticed that some of the material around the support snaps was missing so I contacted Giro (Bell) directly and they sent me out a new helmet with no questions asked. I will be a Giro customer for life based on how they handled this situation. - TWO THUMBS UP!

Good to hear...

I wonder how their crash replacement policy works...

During cross practice I was coming around a 90 degree right hand bend and the next thing I knew my head slammed into the ground...

Sat there dazed for a little while repeating "I hit my head pretty hard"...

Cracked the helmet...

Saved my head...

Giro has been great to me. The helmet replacement policy is very good. You send them your broken helmet with a description of your accident and they give you a coupon to get 50% off (I think check the website) a replacement helmet. I had a hard time finding replacement sweatpads and they got some right out to me.

My wife's Pneumo is a limited edition forma bout 3 or 4 years ago. The retension system broke and I had heard that Giro would replace it if contacted. I emailed them, sure enough, new retention system and pads. They did ask for serial # and MFG date though. So what, original owner no worries!

She's once again happy in pink!
