The Giro Skyla Sport Bike Helmet is a women’s specific design for both road and off-road riding. This helmet is perfect for mountain biking, bicycle commuting, touring and recreational riding. Of course it’s available in a range of colors too, so you can find one that looks and feels custom made for you.
What is good about the Giro Skyla Bike Helmet
Fits and looks good – has a universal fit and then using the Giro Acu dial system you can make adjustment with a single hand so it fits snug. This helmet is also ponytail compatible. There are a lot of different colors and graphics so you can look good while riding.
Great ventilation – the 20 vents keep you cool even during the warmer months and lets the warm air out.
Handy visor – the snap fit visor, which is also color coordinated keeps the glare from your eyes.
Very lightweight – only weights 270 grams, yet is constructed with in-mold technology that fuses a tough outer microshell to the helmet’s EPS foam liner. The fusion process reinforces areas around vents and ribs, making the helmet lighter, cooler and tougher.
Cons about this Bike Helmet

What customers say about the Giro Skyla Bicycle Helmet
There were lots of great reviews for this helmet. Most women find it very stylish, attractive. It is so lightweight you don’t even notice it on your head. Very breathable and with great graphics and colors were some of the other comments.
One reviewer stated she wanted to let everyone know that this Giro Skyla helmet possibly saved her life. She was in a bad bike accident where she flew over the handlebars and got pretty banged up. Her head hit pretty hard but luckily because she was wearing this helmet, she had no major head injury although she did have a broken arm, a sore neck, and was covered with cuts and bruises but thanks to this Skyla helmet, her head was OK.
The only issue with this helmet was some women found the universal fit a little small. If this helmet does fit you are going to love it.
