The inner shell of the helmet is formed by means of foam applied under high pressure and great heat beneath the outer shell. This firm bond creates an extremely stable and very light helmet structure.
THERMOFORMED SL ROLL CAGE:
The polycarbonate reinforcements are lighter than conventional composite reinforcements and yet offer high stability. Thanks to this system, a lighter EPS foam can be used for the helmet's inner shell to reduces the total weight.
WIND TUNNEL VENTILATION:
A clever ventilation system consisting of internal channels and active vents ensures that cool and fresh air is conducted around the head, while the heat can flow away to the outside. Best ventilation during highly intensive activities.
ROC LOC 5 FIT SYSTEM:
The adjustment system in a mini housing allows for an easy adjustment with just two fingers. Apart from the width, you can also individually adjust the height, which ensures a perfect fit.
Breathable inner pads for even more comfort and effective temperature regulation and moisture management.
SUPER FIT ENGINEERING:
The helmets by Giro had to undergo numerous test rides and measurements before they were perfectly shaped and designed on the basis of all test results. Thanks to their clever shape and a huge range of sizes, GIRO helmets fit almost any head.
WHAT IS MIPS?
MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is a slip-plane system within the helmet designed to rotate inside the helmet with the intent to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head possibly reducing head injury from rotational impacts.
WHY IS MIPS IMPORTANT?
When a head rotates quickly and comes to a sudden stop, the rotational acceleration can cause the brain tissue to experience high levels of strain. This stretching of the tissue that can be caused by these motions can result in various types of brain injury. MIPS is designed with the intent to address rotational acceleration from impact.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
MIPS uses a slip-plane system that moves inside the helmet, mimicking the brain’s own protection system. This layer is designed to rotate inside the helmet with the intent to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head. Science tells us that if we can reduce the strains associated with rotational acceleration, we might reduce the risk and severity of brain injury.
