Giro Jackson MIPS Ski Helmet
- Lightweight In-Mold helmet designed with maximised ventilation in mind
- MIPS technology provides added aspect of protection in the event of rotational/oblique impact
- Passive Aggressive ventilation system works to exhaust heat from the helmet when in motion and standing still
- In Form 2 Fit System for customised fitting, with removable audio-compatible earpads
- Compliance: CE EN1077 Class B; Weight: 429g
Our View: Giro took to the drawing board aiming to design a helmet that would deliver protection matching their exceptional standards while packing a killer aesthetic. The result was the Jackson, a sleek and low-profile lid which excels in comfort and safety, with the added benefit of MIPS as standard in all colours.
"The new Jackson helmet is first focused on design and style. The sleek new standout helmet lines created an opportunity for an evolutionary step forward in new performance and functional attributes. The modern profile of the new Jackson helmet utilizes the new Passive Aggressive Venting system, inspired by the aerodynamic airflow of high-end autos." - Giro

MIPS: Multi-Directional Impact Protection System
MIPS is a step forward in helmet design. There are three main components to a MIPS-equipped helmet: the interior foam liner, the Low Friction Liner and an elastomeric attachment system between them. In an angled impact, the elastomeric attachment system stretches to allow the foam liner to rotate independently around your head. The goal of this technology is to further reduce rotational forces which can cause massive stress on the brain.
In-Mold construction fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet’s impact-absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows for better ventilation systems, making In-mold helmets are lighter and cooler than traditional helmets.
In Form 2 Fit System
The In Form 2 system makes it easy to dial in a custom fit in seconds - even with gloves on. An ergo-friendly dial at the base of the helmet provides up to 6 cm of adjustment and enhanced stability while the vertical tuning feature accommodates different goggles and head shapes for a custom fit, free of gaper gap.
Passive Aggressive Venting System
The discrete exterior vent design and interior channeling (including the liner and padding) combine to create optimal airflow and temperature regulation. This auto-venting technology manages airflow and temperature while in-motion riding, hiking or standing static.
Giro's Stack Vent was developed based on research showing the majority of the warm air that can cause fogging exhausts from the center top vent of the goggle. Aligning the Stack Vent in the helmet with the vent of your goggles helps to keep them clear and fog free while maintaining total helmet and goggle integration.
