    New helmet?

    So I just bought a giro rift from the local sporting goods store and didn't realize it was a mountain bike helmet. I didn't know there was a difference in helmets. Will it be ok for commuting?

    Sure,and the visor will keep the sun out of your eyes and the rain from hitting you in the face.
    Ignore them till they go away.It's corporate policy.

    The only issue I ever had with a mtb helmet on the road is sometimes the visor would get in the way, really only an issue in the drops. Worst case, most giro's I've had you can simply remove the thing. I use my xen on the road all the time and just flip it up.
