Giro Synthe Mips Red/Black
Faster is cooler; the Giro Synthe Road Cycle Helmet (MIPS) is the pinnacle of road helmet design and is now available with MIPS technology for added impact protection. A proven race winner, the Synth offers maximum comfort for every bike ride.
Protection legends Giro and MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) come together at last in the stylish and effective Synthe Road Cycle Helmet. Keeping your head still in the event of certain impacts (you can find the science bit below), along with a Roll Cage™ reinforcement with the EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) foam liner. But improved protection doesn’t mean reduced aero performance thanks to ventilation perfected in the wind tunnel. This elaborate design combines active vents in the helmet’s shell with exhaust channels inside the helmet that thrust fresh, cool air over and around the rider’s head while forcing heat and stale air out. It’s the most effective cooling system available, and a difference you can feel every time you ride.
Roc Loc® Air-Fit System
This revolutionary fit system adds a new dimension to helmet performance by enhancing cooling, as well as fit comfort and stability. Using a patented design that suspends the helmet just slightly off the top of the skull, Roc Loc® Air allows cool airflow to pass directly over your head, further enhancing the performance of vents and internal channelling that exhaust heat out of the helmet. Fit and feel adjustments mimic the Roc Loc® 5, allowing you to easily custom tune fit tension and fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds using a single hand.
Roll Cage™ Reinforcement
The Roll Cage™ is a light-yet-tough web of reinforcement invisibly moulded inside a helmet’s foam liner. It helps the helmet to hold together under impact and provides an extra measure of strength and integrity that you’ll never notice...unless you need it.
What is MIPS?
• MIPS is a Brain Protection System
• Rotational motion can cause brain injuries
• The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact
• MIPS adds protection
