GIRO INTRODUCES MIPS TECHNOLOGY IN EVERY HELMET CATEGORY
Giro announced this week, that each model in its range of helmets, is now available with MIPS technology.
For those unfamiliar with the technology, think of MIPS as being like a type of second skull, wherein an interior foam liner and an elastomeric attachment system stretches to allow an interior foam liner to rotate independently around your head. And, while the system is designed to only move a few millimeters, MIPS can reduce the amount of rotational force that’s transferred to a cyclist’s head during impact.
The Synthe, is Giro’s flagship road helmet, and the latest to receive MIPS technology.
The new Synthe is currently being used by several teams in this year’s Tour de France, and the new model will be available next month to consumers.
“The Synthe MIPS is a testament to the energy and resources that we put into helmet design. By combining our advanced research and design capabilities, as well as our close association with MIPS Technologies, we continue to pursue new ideas that can give riders what they demand,” said Giro’s marketing manager Amanda Schaper. “We’ve taken our greatest lessons that we’ve learned in Giro’s 30-year history wrapped up into one extraordinary helmet. And it is so rewarding to see it embraced by three different teams at the Tour.”
The Synthe MIPS weighs 260 grams in size Medium and offers a fully adjustable fit system, adjustable strapping and dedicated ports for securely docking sunglasses, and will retail for $270.
