Giro Switchblade MIPS Helmet
The Switchblade MIPS Helmet by Giro - For downhill use
The Switchblade MIPS full face helmet scores points with enduro and downhill bikers for its good ventilation thanks to Roc Loc Air, combined with optimum impact protection thanks to MIPS. The chin guard is easily removable, and on the visor is a mounting option for an action camera, which lets you record videos of your rides. Should you still start sweating despite maximum ventilation, X-Static padding dries down quickly and prevents the development of unpleasant odours.

The polycarbonate outer shell is glued to the EPS inner shell, which increases the resistance of the helmet. It also makes it easier to shape vents, which means that In-Mold designs typically have better ventilation systems and a lighter weight.
MIPS stands for " Multi Directional Impact Protection System" and refers to a movable protection layer consisting of three components: an EPS liner and low-friction liner, which are then connected by an elastomeric fastening system. This layer protects the brain from oblique impact. The principle of the natural low-friction layer of the brain is adapted in order to minimise the forces that occur.
Roc Loc Air Fit System:
The size is adjusted in small steps with just two fingers. The ventilation of the helmet has been optimized. The helmet design creates an air cushion between the head and the helmet shell. This allows the airstream to flow without resistance and cool the head.
Wind Tunnel Ventilation
Internal ventilation channels and vents direct cool air around the head and expel excess heat.
Incorporated silver threads have an antibacterial effect, which prevents the formation of odours. In addition, the silver threads have cooling properties when warm and warming properties when cold.
