The Giros Chronicle MIPS is a bit of a halfway house between the Montaro and the now discontinued Sequence.
It’s one of the biggest and deepest helmets on test, and has a three-position Roc Loc 5 retention device that really cradles the back of your head, and stays put even without the straps fastened, although the strap buckle on our sample was a little fiddly to open.
Unfortunately, the Chronicle isn’t bottom-wrapped, so it is starting to cut up a little bit in this area, but the shell and P.O.V. Plus visor feel totally solid.
The visor is one of the biggest on test, but only has two positions compared to four on the Montaro.
It does lift up just enough to allow you to park your goggles underneath, although, like the Montaro, it can sit at a wonky angle.
With 14 vents, the Chronicle runs a little hot, but it’s the perfect helmet for harder trail riding — it’s also killer value, has tons of protection and fits like a glove.
