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.
The helmet adjustment system combines comfort and safety with an especially light design. FLOAT FIT optimizes the fit of the helmet – with regards to head measurements and vertical adjustment options. In order to reduce the weight and to ensure ease of use, the arms enclose the back of the head. This brings the helmet into the perfect position on your head. Simple, lightweight and comfortable.
The ventilation system guides an actively cooling airflow through deep inlets to the forehead into the helmet. Specially constructed air channels guide the airstream around the head and the warm air out of the helmet. Deep air inlets over the forehead bring cooling air into the helmet.
The Roll Cage is a reinforcement made of especially high-strength nylon, which is directly embedded into the EPS inner foam of the Giro helmets. It ensures additional stability and safety.
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 MIPS 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.
