What's the difference between the Giro Montaro and the Giro Chronicle? Honestly, they seem about the same except the Montaro costs 50% more. Can anyone speak from experience on the differences between these 2 helmets?
Montaro has a little more venting, and a camera mount, I think. I looked at both a while back, and picked the Chronical because its visor is bigger. I thought it would be useful for low sun rides. While it worked for blocking the sun, I found myself flipping it up out of the way most of the time. Also, they do slightly fit differently. For me, the Chronical fit a little better.
I ditched the Chronical, by the way, due to the Roc Loc ratchet. It failed prematurely. It started loosening on rides. Also, I thought I'd like the ratchets smaller diameter, but in real world use, the ratchet wasn't as ergonomic as a larger one, in my opinion. I think the Montaro has the same ratchet.
I'm now using a TLD A1 MIPS. Best fitting helmet for me to date.
