Giro Cycle Helmet Technology - In-Mold Construction

In-Mold Construction

Fuses a durable outer shell with an impact-absorbing EPS foam liner, enhancing the strength of both parts. This fusion process reinforces areas around vents and ribs, creating a one-piece exoskeleton.

Giro Cycle Helmet Technology - MIPS

MIPS

The Multi-Directional Impact Protection System. Helmets equipped with MIPS redirect energy to provide more protection in certain impacts, without compromising fit, ventilation or style.

Giro Cycle Helmet Technology - Roc Loc 5

Roc Loc 5

Roc Loc 5 allows you to easily custom tune the fit tension and the fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds. And it’s lighter than comparable systems too, making it the ultimate in skull-hugging luxury.


Giro Cycle Helmet Technology - MIPS

MIPS Technology

Under real-world conditions, when you fall, your head usually hits the ground at an angle, putting your head into a spinning motion that could lead to strain in the brain. Accident statistics bear this out. However, in standard helmet tests, the helmet is dropped vertically onto a flat impact surface. This test is helpful for measuring precise vertical impacts, but far inferior for measuring the more realistic scenario of an angled impact.



MIPS was conceived as mitigation against the hazards of these angled impacts. The technology is simple, but its potential is profound. A low-friction membrane within the helmet allows the head to travel in the direction of impact, rather than violently forcing the head in the direction of the helmet. This means rotational energy at the moment of impact can be dissipated before it is exerted on the brain, potentially reducing the risk of brain injury such as concussion.


Protection Based on Human Anatomy

Mimicking the cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain, MIPS adds a low friction layer that enables a relative movement of 10-15 mm between the head and the helmet in any direction.

Scientifically Tested and Proven

MIPS has evolved through research in Sweden since 1996 by some of the world's leading researchers in biomechanics and neuroscience. A testing rig was specifically built to simulate angled impacts as realistically as possible.

Lightweight, Seamless Protection

MIPS works by installing a thin (0.5–0.7 mm), ventilated, custom cut low-friction layer inside the helmet liner. The MIPS layer adds practically no weight and is thin enough not to compromise on fit.
