Review: Giant Realm Helmet - Comfortable Extra Coverage

Jan 18, 2022
by Henry Quinney  

Giant’s new Realm MIPS is an open face helmet that gives extra protection around the ear and back of the head. There’s so much about this helmet that clearly has a focus on protection for riding rowdy trails, which begs the question: does this style of helmet bring anything worthwhile to the table? Or would you be better of riding a lightweight full-face helmet? Or even a full downhill model?

Giant wasn’t the first to do this style of helmet. You may also be familiar with models like the Giro Tyrant and Fox Dropframe. Initially, they were met with derisive claims from some that they’re just a halfway house offering a poor compromise of both. However, after having ridden this helmet for a while I have to say I couldn’t disagree more, and it’s become my go-to for most of my winter riding.

But before we get into my impressions, let us look at the helmet itself.

The fit is deep yet unobtrusive.

Details

The helmet details suggest a no-nonsense approach, and not half-hearted compromise. The visor is large and actually helps keep the mud (and sun) out of your eyes. I personally find it strange when mountain biking helmets that are meant to be ridden off-road feature nothing but the vestige of a visor that was once there. Some helmets have visors that are too small, too high or without the needed adjustment to actually make a difference to your vision. This is a bugbear of mine - I don’t want a visor just to suggest that the helmet is off-road focused. I actually want it to be an off-road focussed helmet.

Another element of this is sensible glasses storage underneath the visor. Again, another pet peeve of mine is the lack of secure storage of your specs or putting them in a place on the top or the back of the helmet. It feels like only a handful of years ago helmets were boasting of complicated exhaust vents. Now that supposed feature has morphed into where you store your glasses on many helmets. This is right in the firing line of all your heat and seems to steam up the glasses without fail. Having them on the front of the helmet goes a long way to mitigate this.

Glasses tuck up very securely underneath the visor.

The last obviously sensible, and very welcome feature, is the crash replacement program offered by Giant. The program states, “If your Giant or Liv branded helmet is damaged, Giant Canada will offer a replacement helmet if the damage and claim is made within the first year of ownership. Giant will aim to provide a free helmet, which is either like for like or the latest equivalent model. If the same colour helmet is no longer available, Giant will provide an alternative colour from the current model.” This, to me, is more than just merely reasonable and extends to above and beyond what one could normally expect.

The helmet features different cheek pads to tailor the fit to your needs. As well as a square space left atop the helmet that’s the perfect size for a GoPro patch. It also features a D-ring buckle closure system. I’m not sure if this is strictly needed for an open face mountain bike helmet but they’re quite common on full-face helmets.

At $279.99 CDN it’s not exactly cheap. Although Giant is making forays into higher-end kit, this price point means that it goes up directly against the Giro Tyrant and the Fox Dropframe, which are both less expensive. It's currently not available in the US.


A dial system and changeable ear-padding help you tune the fit.
Plus a very secure buckle.


The Fit & Comfort

The fit is, as expected, deep and secure. It doesn’t just provide more coverage over the ears but also extends far further down the back of the head than a normal half shell. I did find myself making use of the cheek-pad sizes to fine-tune the fit. I initially rode with the originals but found they pressed against my upper jaw slightly. Changing them out remedied this small issue.

The helmet has a dial adjustment. I have a head circumference of 58cm and am very happy in the medium/large size.

The depth is about right, too, leaving ample space for goggles. Glasses work well too and don't interfere with the fit of the helmet or give pressure points around the temple.


Giant make some of their lights with a GoPro attachment and it works well.


On Trail Performance

The Realm MIPS promises some great features, and I would say that it delivers out on the trail. If the mud splatters on the top of the aggressive visor are anything to go by, then it would suggest it really does help shield dirt from your eyes and keep your vision clear. It’s not dissimilar from a full face’s size. Its adjustment goes from slightly visible to up and out of the way. If you wish to store eyewear then the visor will need to be in its upper position. Changing where the visor sits is easy and has a light clicking action.

The part of the helmet that covers the ear does shield the wind from your ears and reduces noise. That said, I don’t believe it alters how well you can hear in traffic. I’ve worn this helmet in the autumnal and winter conditions of Canada so overheating hasn’t been too much of a concern. I think it breathes well, but I’m not sure I’d be reaching for it in the height of summer on big pedalling days.

In some ways, it’s a perfect helmet for winter. The wind chill is kept off your ears and its deeper fit means that if you wish to wear a light when night riding it will still stay stable.

Goggles also fit very well.

My only small qualm would be the noise from the MIPS system. It creaks and groans when you’re moving around. You do kind of get used to it, but it is a bit annoying. I also feel like the D-clip buckle, whilst very secure, might be slightly over the top.

The weight, at 700 grams for a medium/large might put you off. For reference, a Troy Lee A3 weighs just over 400 g and a D4, which is reasonably light for a full-face helmet, is around 1000 grams. The Giro Tyrant, which has a similar 3/4 shell profile, weighs in at 623 grams. You don’t really notice the weight of the Realm when riding with it, but that’s not to say it isn’t there. Thanks to the deep fit it feels like it wraps around your head rather than it being perched on top.


Is This Style of Helmet a Fad?

Is this style of helmet merely a fad? I wouldn’t say so. I think helmets such as the Realm are here to stay. They might not have the chin bar of some burlier helmets, but that’s also what makes them so versatile. For me, it’s not just the weight of a full-face helmet but also the chin bar keeping my hot-air exhalations in that makes me not want to wear one all the time.

If I was doing days of bike park laps, I'm not going to be wearing the Realm - if a ride deserves extra protection then I want a full downhill helmet. Then again, there are plenty of times where I might be going to ride technical trails where I would gladly take some extra protection but don’t want to risk overheating. That's where a helmet such as the Realm comes in.


The MIPS could get noisy when riding. A creaking noise wasn't uncommon to hear.




Pros

+ Comfortable, especially with lights
+ Eyewear storage
+ Great for colder climates
+ Excellent crash replacement program
+ Large adjustable visor
Cons

- Might be too much coverage for hotter climates
- MIPS is noisy
- The looks won't be for everyone




Pinkbike's Take
bigquotesThe Realm MIPS has a lot going for it. The crash replacement programme is excellent, the fit is good and the features are sensible. It seems tailor-made for wet winter riding or gravity fuelled rides that also happen to have a lot of pedalling in. I'm not sure I would use it on hot summer days but for my general solo trail riding, I feel like it's a no-brainer. It offers a lot more coverage in a comfortable package.

 Winter helmet? Just wear a thin beanie-it’s a lot cheaper.

Maybe if this cost what a regular half-shell does it might make sense…….nope. Even at $150 or so I don’t see where I’d grab this instead of my full face or regular half shell.

 Agreed, aside from the ugly factor, it's a compromise - ie. not great for anything. In my opinion, if you think you need extra coverage, to the point you need to cover your ears, then you need a chin-guard. Why can't they focus development on thinner chin guards - like those used for alpine slalom skiing...
  • 7 0
 @trillot: Agree these cover-the-ears 3/4 shells are worst-of-all-worlds compromise. As for the rigid chinbars on alpine slalom helmets: they are designed for sole purpose of keeping gates from knocking out your teeth. Upon impact with hard ground or rock those rigid bars will absorb zero energy, and most likely bind, transferring all that impact energy to your neck. MTB helmets are designed w/ foam crush zones to absorb impact energy before it gets to your head/spine. IXS already makes a well-ventilated full-face that weighs less than this goofy Giant duckbill thing, check it out: it is the droid you are looking for.

 Another review that doesn't talk about the helmets most important feature... It's ability to protect your head in a crash!
As a consumer, I won't wear a helmet that hasn't been tested and rated against other helmets, ideally by Virginia Tech

www.helmet.beam.vt.edu/bicycle-helmet-ratings.html
  • 5 0
 I agree with you about that being the most important, but it's probably a bit tricky for a reviewer to actually offer any data on that? As far as I'm aware Virginia Tech are the only people publishing tests for a broad array of helmets like this, so if they haven't tested it yet what can the reviewer talk about?

The Virginia Tech results were definitely responsible for me buying the Tactic 4 for my most recent helmet though.
  • 3 0
 @danprisk: they can call them out for not having sent the helmet to Virginia Tech to test
they can send their review helmet to VT to test? (not sure how many are needed to run a test)

but I agree without pinkbike setting up their own test lab, there isn't too much they can directly do, but the more people asking for helmet ratings the more likely we are going to see all helmets get rated and better helmets overall

 How does a visor keep mud out of your eyes? I'm trying to understand the source & arc trajectory of mud raining down that a visor would block. The mud I'm familiar with comes at a low trajectory. Or at least so I thought....
  • 4 5
 Front tire throws muddy water drops up and forward of you, then you ride into them as they're falling. Visor will help a little, probably not a huge difference tho. Well, front tire throws mud every direction, but a portion of it is up/forward.

 Can't speak from personal experience but lots of the UK crowd here can verify; my understanding is the mud pours from the sky over there 13 months a year.

 Would really like to see a good review of the Kali Invader 2.0 compared to half-shell helmets like this.
Most reviews of the Kali seem to focus on the fact that it's not DH rated, but it's not meant to be.
If looking at something like this Realm wouldn't the Invader make more sense?
  • 3 0
 Yeah I'd be interested in a full face helmet for hot weather comparison. As I get older I've thought about getting a full face for normal riding, that Kali looks interesting.
  • 5 0
 I grabbed one of the Kali Invader 2.0's because I'm dangerous at any speed. I've done some longish days in it, did a 25 mile ride and it was around 70f degrees. Breathed better than my old Giro Source, didn't overheat, no noisy mips. Super comfy and secure, only gripe so far is somewhat odd chin strap placement, make sure you try one on. I've gotten used to it and it doesn't bother me anymore but the straps are at a slightly weird angle compared to other ff helmets.

For the price and protection, I think it's an awesome option for trail riders who want more protection but isn't sending the gnarliest of DH/Freeride lines. Even on XC days I find myself jibbing stupid stuff and risking my biscuits! I never can tell when I'll face the consequences of stupidity/fun, might as well be prepared.

 I got a Giant Realm and I love it. I was set on buying the Kali Invader 2.0 full face trail helmet, but I didn't find it comfortable at all. I really recommend trying to find a place to try it on first, the Realm wasn't on my radar and I was pleasantly surprised how well it felt. Most of my riding is with my young kids on aggressive blue trail runs (I don't go crazy or anything) or on gravel pathways. This helmet is fine on all of that and has been nothing but comfortable. I find it well balanced as well so no neck strain. Oh, having unobstructed hearing and being able to shout is really important while riding with the kids.

If I were regularly doing black runs, or bike park, (or even just riding without the kids all the time) I'd look into getting a fullface enduro helmet. But this is a great compromise. I have a fullface DH helmet kicking around but I hate wearing it and it doesn't do you any good sitting in the garage while out on the trails.

LOL I have to say with my Giant Realm dork helmet and my full mudhugger fenders, I'm going full out dork dad mode though!

 @Chondog94: If you're not risking your biscuits are you even doing it right? I've been fortunate that all my high speed dismounts have seen good tuck and rolls... those low speed greasy logs off the side of the trail on the other hand, not so much, heh. I agree, never can tell when I'll face the consequences of my own stupidity, I'll take all the protection I can get!

 I use the Kali Invader as my only helmet... during the heat wave I took my cheek pads out. I'll definitely get another when this one is done. Lifetime free crash replacement (one time use) is pretty awesome as well.

 @OCSunDevil: as someone who knocked their teeth out in August and still are battling with getting them fixed, I can vouch for a helmet like the TLD Stage, or something like it. I end up rinsing and washing the pads a little bit more due to the sweat, but it’s negligible compared to my D3. Breathes well and feels much closer to a half lid than a full face. Before I had my accidental “facial reconstruction “
I’m that crash, I’d hit the dirt in another Stage and it dented and deformed, and fit it’s job wonderfully! Truly a good time we’re living (riding?) in now when a lightweight full face is relatively comfortable to pedal uphill in.

 @OCSunDevil: thanks man! Some Covid delays with appointments- but I’m February in should be back in one piece and not look like a Jack-O-Lantern.

The crazy thing is the amount of people that came forward with their own stories about how many teeth were lost in the front of their face and how many implants they have (and still ride half lid). I’ll never forget this experience and a light full face feels completely normal now and natural, to the point that a half lid would feel weird!
  • 5 1
 700g? I see full face helmets that weigh that much. A Super 3R weighs only 38g more in full face mode, and that’s a 2-piece convertible helmet.
The Giro Switchblade, another 2-piece helmet, which offers just as much coverage in half-face mode weighs 613g.

Are helmet makers just bored and seeing how heavy they can make their helmets?
  • 7 1
 @nickfranko TLD Stage is 690gm, full face trail lid, ASTM certified, we definitely were not bored and definitely strived for protection and lightweight.

I loved the concept of Stage, but the Large didn't cover my forehead and the XL had no grip on the sides with even the biggest padding and just wobbled around. I had the same issue with a D3.

 @mechatronicjf: The Endura MT500 was the only one of the current crop of lightweight full faces that felt secure on my head. The cheekpads appear to be wrapped in sandpaper though (which is an interesting design choice) and it slightly pinches my head a the back, but it's secure when you do up the ratchet which is the main thing.

It also had the bonus of looking like a UNSC Spartan helmet when worn with gold lense goggles, which is useful for avoiding getting shot by Master Chief. #xenoTips

 The Fox Drop Frame is 750g I actually enjoy using it on trail rides where I know the drops are bigger and the speeds are faster. I also have Troy Lee Stage helmet, and I just don't like climbing in it. It's only 690g and I reach for my Drop Frame over it most of the time. I love the Stage for flowy bike park trails, but I just don't like the chin bar on a fullface while pedaling. The gen 1 Switchblade just skeeved me out to much to run one of the detachable ones, and Bell should be embarrassed for releasing Super Air R. Its almost painful to look at.

 Trying to wrap my head around, no pun intended, why i'd wanna put full face weight on my head-without protecting my face. What is the allure of this? ear impact protection?
I borrowed a friends commuter helmet during the holidays when visiting my mum in the city, it was about 600 grams, and im used to light trail lids, my neck got sore with that thing.
But hey, cool to see Giant making cool stuff.

 I would probably use a helmet like this as I don't ride burly trails that need a full face, but I wouldn't mind some more protection. But I have an XXL sized head so that ain't gonna happen.
  • 5 0
 but why does it cost the same as a full lid????? Might as well get a full face if your getting this.
  • 3 0
 Realistically, what extra protection do these helmets provide? Just seems like a less-comfortable half shell or a less-protective fullface. I just don't see the benefit unless you like the look. But I'm open to correction.
  • 1 0
 My Giro Switchbalde disagrees, it has a walnut sized dent just below the ear. So it does provide more protection than half lid, but less than fullface and you can actually ride with it on all the time. Fullface is awkward to ride uphill, you can ride this style of helmet wthout a pack. This is just a niche product, a little more protection then half shell, a little more convenient than a fullface, almost as comfortable as a half shell*
*excluding summer
  • 4 0
 There is more protection at the side of the head compared to a typical half-shell. I'm in the same boat as Henry - I like this style of helmet for cooler fall / winter rides. The deeper fit makes it work well for night riding - it's less likely to shift around when you mount a light on top of it.
  • 1 0
 Another anecdotally observed protection benefit of these half shell style lids is that they reduce the tendency of the helmet to lift and rotate when the side impacts the ground. Yes I know in theory that the straps should keep it down, but the real world is more complex.
  • 2 0
 I love it. I don’t get the ‘wear a half shell or wear a full face’ argument. I mostly dirt jump, but trail ride a bit and get in park days where I can. After a few years in half shells for trail and skate lids for DJ, I got a switch blade and I’ve never felt more confident. Half shell lids are NOT enough protection. Skate lids are a joke. This is the minimum protection I want any time im on a bike. I still wear my full face for anything that warrants it, and a 3/4 lid for anything that doesn’t require a full face. These helmets just make sense and are safer.


I recently took a little tumble while dirt jumping, wind caught me wheels and I ended up off the trail and smacked my head against a rock. At the top of the right side ear cover on my switchblade was a nasty dent. Sharp edge of the rock dented the helmet in about a quarter inch. I was a little rattled, but fine. Compared my helmet to some friends half shells, and the rock hit below the helmet line on every one of their helmets. Rock would have poked my temple. Doubt I’d be writing this off I was in a half shell.

I get 3/4 helmets aren’t for everyone, but there certainly IS a place for them. Why are more options with varying levels of protection not a good thing? Just because you think a half shell is fine for trail doesn’t mean I do. I want a helmet I feel safe in as well, without having to go all the way to full face. Make fun of the aesthetics all you want, but please stop saying there isn’t a place for these helmets.

I think this Giant will replace my switch blade. Catch me and my goofy ass helmet feeling safe on the trails!

 Why not a lightweight FF to protect your teeth too?

Why are people a-okay with half shells, but this helmet is dumb because no teeth protection?

 I have had a Giro Switchblade convertible for years now, and wearing it as a 3/4 for cooler rides is where it's gotten most of its use. My ears get less cold and wind whipped and you get the extra coverage to boot. I'm still getting used to how they look, but I like 3/4 helmets.

 Same, my Switchblade gets the most use during fall/winter riding for sure as a 3/4, but is too warm and weird looking for full-time use.

 Lack of a temporal strap is a concern for me. I once bought a Bell super 3r helmet and on this one the temporal strap was too far back, which in case of a front crash could let the helmet tip backward as it wasn't hold by the chin enough.
  • 1 0
 I used to have a 3/4 shell Giro Switchblade, and I ended up just using it in full face mode for anything that wasn't xc. The chin bar really didn't make a noticeable difference, which is why I struggle to see the point in a 3/4 shell. You might as well just put up with the full face at this point.
  • 1 0
 I got the Dropframe for the reasons cited here, more coverage without going to a full face. I like the additional coverage, but the mips liner pokes my head on the back where it attaches to the helmet. Drives me absolutely insane, but I've mostly mitigated it by covering the plastic plugs with insulation tape. This one, with a dial adjustment, looks more comfortable.

I then got a Specialized Gambit to replace my Proframe which broke (since I need a full-face to race), and it is so much more comfortable than the Dropframe that I regret getting the Dropframe.

 As much as people love to trash talk, I personally love the idea of these minus the ads warmth of something like this. I think the look of them is cool; they remind me of old bmx or moto trials helmets, which I think is really fun and I would love to have more back of head coverage, that said, as someone who struggles with helmet line acne, I can’t imagine wearing one of these, for the same reason that I feel uncomfortable wearing a full face. Too many hot and sweaty materials running against your skin.

 Another Princess Leah helmet to protect your ears? Seems like putting development into chin bar design (lighter, stronger, better etc) so you don't get a smashed face would be much better placed development. But 'style' (lack thereof?) and 'trend' uber alles, eh?
