Giro Synthe MIPS Road Helmet
The Giro Synthe MIPS is the pinnacle of road helmet design. Not only does it blend aerodynamics and cooling power, but there's also Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) technology which can reduce the amount of rotational force in certain impacts. Suitable for all conditions, all the time, the Synthe rivals standard road helmets with its exceptional ventilation, low weight and good looks. But then when it's tested in a wind tunnel the Synthe is nearly as efficient as the fastest time trial helmets. That's a serious win-win situation in our books. Elaborate internal channeling and 19 gigantic vents provide excellent flow-through and take cooling power to new levels while its fit is second to none via the Roc Loc Air retention system. It's fully adjustable and creates a gap between the forehead and the inside of the helmet to further enhance the cooling equation.
  • In-Mold Polycarbonate Shell delivers a lighter, more durable and better ventilated design
  • Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) reduces the rotational forces caused by angled impacts
  • 19 Wind Tunnel vents with internal channels provide superb cooling comfort
  • Roc Loc Air retention system suspends helmet slightly above head for improved air flow
  • Integrated Aero Mesh side panels control the airflow's boundary layer and provide further cooling
  • Anti-microbial X-Static padding offers unprecedented comfort and manages moisture
  • Eyewear Docking Ports for stashing glasses when not in use
  • Ultra-light buckles and Slimline webbing shave grams

Comments about Giro Synthe MIPS Road Helmet:

The helmet is amazingly comfortable, light, breathable. However, my retention system broke after only having it a little over a month. I didn't drop it or abuse it, but the plastic separated and finally cracked in half. Luckily, Nashbar came to the rescue and I'm giving it another chance. Hopefully this one fairs better than the last.
