The SYNTHE MIPS II from GIRO is a real classic, which GIRO has updated for more ventilation and comfort. The bike helmet is aerodynamic and offers impressive ventilation within its lightweight, but hard-wearing design. Countless features like the ROC LOC AIR MIPS adjustment system ensure an especially comfortable fit. The perfect choice for any fan of speed.
• INMOLD polycarbonate shell with EPS inner shell

• Extra-light strap system with SLIMLINE CLOSURE
• ROC LOC 5 AIR MIPS fitting system
• 19 WIND TUNNEL vents
• Antibacterial coating on X-STATIC padding
• SUPER FIT ENGINEERING fit
• Built-in MIPS system reduces rotational forces
Weight: approx. 240 g (size M)
The inner shell is fused with the outer shell under high pressure and strong heat for a lasting connection. This makes the helmet very robust and lightweight.
THERMALSHAPED SL ROLL CAGE
The polycarbonate reinforcement is lighter than most composite reinforcements, while still being extremely stable. Thanks to this system a lighter EPS foam can be used for the helmet inner lining to reduce the overall weight.
An extra-flat and yet more stable helmet closure that minimises pressure points.
ROC LOC 5 AIR FIT SYSTEM:
The adjustment system in a mini housing allows for easy adjustments with just two fingers. You can adjust it in height and width for a perfect fit.
At the same time, the construction creates an air cushion between the helmet shell, creating a pleasant, cool stream of air around the head.
A sophisticated ventilation system consisting of internal channels and active vents allows cool, fresh air to circulate around the head while also allowing heat to escape. For great ventilation on exhausting rides.
The lining with silver fibres comes with an antibacterial finish to reduce odours. The heat-reflecting and breathable properties provide a pleasant climate.
SUPER FIT ENGINEERING:
Helmets from GIRO have to undergo countless measurements and test rides. They are then optimally shaped and cut based on the results of those tests. Thanks to the well-designed shape and range of sizes, the GIRO helmet fits nearly any head.
WHAT IS MIPS?
MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is a slip-plane system within the helmet. It is designed to rotate inside the helmet and thus slow down or reduce the impact energy acting on the brain, which helps reduce head injuries caused by rotational impacts.
WHY IS MIPS IMPORTANT?
When a head rotates quickly and comes to a sudden stop, the rotational acceleration may cause the brain tissue to experience high levels of strain. This stretching of the tissue caused by these motions may 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.
