Giro's Aether MIPS Helmet, safety and protection from an impact is everything. Plenty of performance helmets have MIPS Brain Protection System (BPS), but the Aether has an improved, redesigned MIPS protection system. MIPS BPS is scientifically proven to reduce rotational motion when implemented in a helmet by absorbing and redirecting rotational forces. Until now, MIPS BPS has always been implemented directly against the riders head with a plastic slip-plane inside the helmet. Aether MIPS, or MIPS Spherical, is what the Giro Aether calls their revolutionized MIPS BPS. So what has Giro and MIPS done differently to improve this system? A dual density foam liner that manages a wide range of impact energies called EPS foam, surrounds the MIPS so that the MIPS is integrated between layers of EPS foam, all while having incredible air channeling.
Micro-bead expanded polystyrene material for a sleek and slim silhouette without compromising protection standouts
Structural integrity supported by the shatter-resistant and translucent AURA reinforcing arch that runs throughout the helmet
Multi-density EPS foam to save weight and manage a wide range of impact energies
Integrated docking eyewear ports with rubber grippers to help secure sunglasses
Specifications: Roc Loc Plus: Compact adjustment dial for a precise, customized fit
MIPS Spherical: Moves the slip-plane externally to redirect the energy of certain impact forces
Ventilation: 11 huge vents with deep channeling keep you cooler
In-Mold Construction: Fuses the laser-cut shell to the EPS foam

Giro Aether MIPS Helmet (Matte Black) (S)
I love this helmet. Yes, it has a slight mushroom look, but it is supremely comfortable, light, ventilated and aero. Unlike most MIPS helmets that have the ugly yellow liner on the inside, the Aether is a two part system that looks and feel much better. Would absolutely buy again and would recommend to a friend.
I went with the black given the pearl was OOS in a medium. The black looks great in person (better than the photos), and I do not regret the color choice.
