Giro Bike Helmets
Giro have led the way in head protection for decades, and their helmets are a common fixture in professional cycling events year after year. Never one to shy away from pushing the envelope of technological advancement, Giro were one of the first brands to integrate MIPS technology into their designs, giving riders the added assurance of ultimate head protection.
Giro was founded in 1985 by Jim Gentes. Based in Santa Cruz, California, Giro's location at the intersection of surf and mountains has allowed for the pioneering of protective wear for all manner of action sports.
All designs feature a lightweight In-Mold shell constuction, with protection and comfort assured whatever your choice thanks to the inclusion of the MIPS system and adjustable fitting systems as standard on all models.
Giro lead the field when it comes to head protection and styling. Brand new to RxSport this season is the full-face Switchblade helmet, ideal for hardcore downhill riding and equipped with a removable chin guard for enduro.

MIPS: Multi-Directional Impact Protection System
The MIPS Brain Protection System is a helmet integrated, low friction layer designed to reduce rotational motion transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the head.
MIPS allows the head to move inside the helmet which can reduce the harmful rotational motion otherwise transferred to the brain.
Falling at an angle creates rotational motion and science has shown that our brains are very sensitive to rotational forces. In an angled impact, these forces may transfer to your brain, which can cause severe injuries. MIPS can reduce the rotational motion and reduce the risk of brain damage.
