@jam bo …..sorry was bored at work and came back to this post from donkeys ago. whilst your pads arent too bad in that photo,… that is what i would class as knackered. i have a 3 year old POC helmet that looks in better nick than that!!. my Giro pads were much worse and as @onzadog said it scratches your head…. you should not see the brown internal material whatsover, once you see that then the seems have burst and they should be replaced
i had a battle with giro/CRC and was forced to use a new helmet after the 3 sets of returned padding, which again failed on its first ride. so got my money back eventually and bought a troylee A1…….. weirdly i’ve done about 160hrs hard riding and its as good as the day i unboxed them!!!Posted 9 months agomedlowMember
Arrrggh Cr4p… Just noticed my Monatro pads are falling apart.
The long front pad, at the ends.
My lid is a small grey, ordered April this year with the orange pads.
Probably 20hrs riding and I dont sweat from my head much at all.
I have emailed Merlin cycles to see what they will do.
I LOVE my Montaro. But if Merlin offer a straight forward refund I might take it, as I suspect the replacement pads (if they chose to send me any) will be the same.
What a shame. Poor show Giro.Posted 7 months ago
Yep, they are shite, and the customer relations are full of it also. Real shame as I have always rated Giro, and my Synthe is a superb road lid. I am now on a Spesh Ambush for MTB and it fits as well as the Montaro, weighs a load less, and isn’t falling apart, so far.Posted 7 months ago
I was told that they changed the pad manufacturing process in Feb 2017 so any helmet before that has the stonky pads. However, they don’t know when all the old pads got used up.
Tried a new helmet dated May 2017 but didn’t even get to wear it as the visor mount was twisted.
Also learned that Tweeks have the most ridiculous returns process. For some reason, I have to wait for it to be inspected by the supplier. I’m still not sure why they couldn’t just refund the faulty one and sell me another instead. One to avoid in future.Posted 7 months ago
If you’re pads are kinda falling apart, it’s a different thing from those of us that have the special strength pad killing sweat. In under three hours, they become a corrugated brow saw.
You’re right though, it’s a great lid otherwise, which is why I’m trying to get past the pad issue.Posted 7 months agomahaloSubscriber
may as well resurrect an old thread – snapped my visor, i can see replacements are readily available online but none of them say whether the bolts are included? anyone bought one? just curious as you can by the bolts separately… i lost one of mine when i snapped the visor…Posted 6 months ago
