While the jury is still out on goggles with XC lids Giro have introduced the Feature, a helmet that blurs the lines between skate, enduro and all mountain. Now Giro have been here before with a few of their helmets in the past like the SemiMX, so you can’t go saying they are jumping on anyone’s bandwagon. The Feature is a more heavy duty All-Mountain/Enduro style helmet than the XAR and offers a good cross between skate lid aesthetic and breathable functionality. So the key features of the Feature (I sound like Austin Powers) are its in-mold design, its 12 vents, the fact that it’s goggle compatible (but you knew that from our photo) and it has a three bolt visor (more akin to a DH helmet than an XC one) as well as external strapping (see it starts on the outside not the inside) I have no idea when you will be seeing these in the shops but i’ll find out soon as well as getting a ball park RRP.
