Giro - MIPS ( Save: 18 % )
This Aerohead™ MIPS takes the same wind-cheating silhouette as the leading-edge Aerohead Ultimate, but adds increased ventilation to keep triathletes and time trialists cool when the competition is hot. By using a polycarbonate shell, Wind Tunnel™ ventilation and internal channeling, this helmet is proven to boost cooling power while remaining aerodynamic. Additionally, Aerohead™ MIPS features a wrap-around eye shield that offers an impressive field of view with the convenience of a magnetic anchor attachment to allow easy storage of the lens in the “flipped up” position – Perfect for fast swim-to-bike transitions.
MIPS All Giro helmets are designed to reduce as much energy as possible while meeting and exceeding stringent safety standards. The Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) was designed to redirect energy and provide more protection in certain impacts.
Lens by Zeiss® Optictics shield with magnetic attachment The wrap-around eye shield offers an unblocked field of view with a huge aerodynamic benefit and the shield is made by ZEISS® Optics for unrivaled clarity. A magnetic anchor attachment keeps the shield secure, yet easy to remove, and it can be stored in the “flipped up” position.
In-Mold Construction In-mold construction fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet’s impact absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows Giro to sculpt better ventilation systems, so In-mold helmets can be lighter and cooler than traditional helmets.
Roc Loc® Air Fit System This revolutionary fit system adds a new dimension to helmet performance by enhancing cooling, as well as fit comfort and stability. Using a patented design that suspends the helmet just slightly off the top of the skull, Roc Loc® Air allows cool airflow to pass directly over your head, further enhancing the performance of vents and internal channeling that exhaust heat out of the helmet. Fit and feel adjustments mimic the Roc Loc® 5, allowing you to easily custom tune fit tension and fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds using a single hand.
Super Fit™ Engineering Our proprietary Super Fit™ sizing system is based on “human scale factors” data and over 25 years of handcrafting helmets. By creating helmet molds in up to 4 adult sizes to match the human body’s form, our Super Fit™ sizes comfortably and securely fit riders, and feel like they are custom made just for you.
What is MIPS?
• MIPS is a Brain Protection System
• Rotational motion can cause brain injuries
• The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact
• MIPS adds protection
