All Giro helmets are designed to reduce as much energy as possible while meeting and exceeding stringent safety standards. The goal of Giro’s MIPS-equipped helmets is to reduce rotational forces. Giro believes that helmets equipped with this technology can reduce the amount of rotational force that may be transferred to rider’s brain in certain impacts.
The Hydrophilic Pad can absorb up to 10 times its own weight in water, helping you manage sweat while riding. The pad retains moisture to prevent sweat from dripping into your eyes, and then dries quickly. The antimicrobial, X-Static lining helps to reduce odor, keeping your helmet fresh.
P.O.V. Plus Visor
This technology features an adjustment mechanism that lets you move the visor up and down in indexed steps. These steps include three riding position plus a high position for google storage above your brow. The design allows you to easily adjust your visor with one hand while riding.
Roc Loc Air DH System
The Roc Loc Air DH System enhanced stability and ventilation while preventing accidental adjustments if your helmet contacts your backpack or neck brace.
Super Fit™ engineering
Giro's proprietary Super Fit™ sizing system is based on “human scale factors” data and over 25 years of handcrafting helmets. By creating helmet molds in up to 4 adult sizes to match the human body’s form, the Super Fit™ sizes comfortably and securely fit riders, and feel like they are custom made just for you.
Wind Tunnel Cheek Pad Ventilation
Extra cooling power when the chinbar is removed. Giro helmets are developed utilizing a proprietary Wind Tunnel Ventilation system. This elaborate design combines active vents in the helmet's shell with exhaust channels inside that thrust fresh, cool air over and around the rider's head while forcing heat and slate air out. It's the most effective cooling system available and a difference you can feel every time you ride.
Removable Chin Bar
The Chinbar is easy to remove and reinstall while wearing the helmet.
The Switchblade™ MIPS is our new ASTM downhill certified full face helmet with a removable chinbar. Everything about the Switchblade is optimized for the descent, and that’s why it’s certified to CPSC, EN-1078 and ASTM-1952-DH with and without the chinbar. The chinbar is easy to remove—just push the buttons under the chinbar, rotate up, and remove—and it’s just as easy to reinstall. The Switchblade MIPS features the new Roc Loc® Air DH fit system, which has a bumper around the dial to prevent accidental adjustments if your helmet contacts your backpack or neck brace—all while keeping you cool. When the chinbar comes off, Wind Tunnel cheek pad ventilation adds even more cooling power as you start to climb. Plus, the full-cut style gives this helmet an aggressive look and provides ASTM certified coverage even when the chinbar is removed. When your ride is all about descending, your helmet should be too, and the Switchblade MIPS is the only removable chinbar helmet that is truly built for the down.
