The giro montaro helmet, although really nice, seems to get gunked up and smelly after a few sweaty riding sessions. Once it got so bad that it began to irritate my skin. You can wash the pads but that only works a few times... best solution is just to replace them. Although these aren't the same color as the pads that came in my original helmet, I don't care. These are perfect for the job.
Bought the Giro helmet and 6 months later the headband (front) pad was coming unstuck from it's velcro base. Pretty poor! My first Giro helmet and I am disappointed!! Previously had always had good luck with a cheaper helmet, no problems with the padding.
