    Giro helmet rumor?
    I slammed last night and cracked my new Giro helmet. I told a buddy about it today and he told me that if I take it back to a shop, they'll give me 30% off a new Giro helmet. Anybody ever heard this before?

    As noted - it's true. After a terrible crash, my Giro Pneumo was toast. My dealer dealt with all the warranty stuff, and simply took 30% off at the register...

    That's cool news! I purchased my new giro helmet this past Tuesday. It was on sale for 28.00

    Hope to never bust it or use my head to get it busted, but if so,,, I know to depend on Giro for a new one :)

    I think most the manufactures have some sort of crash replacement incentives.
    On April first I fubared my Serfas helmet which I got at a good discount, when I took the bucket back to Greenline I learned Serfas was no longer in the helmet business, but they did not hesitate to knock 25% off a new Giro.

    Yeah, when I bought my helmet I saw something like that in the papers that came with it. I think that's cool for Giro to do, getting return customers and easy real world testing.
