G10 Snow Helmet

G10 is an early Giro snow helmet in which I played a secondary roll. Mike Musal was the primary engineer, designing the slider system, but he was called away to another project and the then "junior guy," that's me, took over. I was more heavily into the testing side of things than Mike and it made sense to put me on the job. Nevertheless there were considerable on the fly changes to the slider system, manufacturing method, and integration of the soft goods side of things, although the ID guy Greg Martin always does a fine job, this helmet was a 1/2 feather in my cap when finished.
This project is a good example of a team that was flexible enough to change rolls in the middle of the development cycle.
