The technologies mentioned above don’t impact the ventilation properties of this helmet. Aside from the vents visible on the outside, this helmet also has internal vents. This will keep your head cool even on the hottest days. In addition, the Giro Aether MIPS has the Roc Loc ® 5-Plus fit system which allows you to adjust the helmet’s fit in mere seconds.

Incredibly comfortable with a very secure fit
Whilst it is an unusual wider shape at the sides and so may not suit every rider's taste, it still has the classic sleek Giro look which I've always loved. The innovative approach to MIPS is very effective with no hair pulling when taking it off and impeccable airflow better than my Synthe it replaced. I've seen the more rounded interior shape criticised for fit but on my head which I've always considered narrower it actually fits better than any other helmet I've ever worn EVER. The fit is highly and easily adjustable. When it's on I can easily forget it's there. I have no issues with the forehead being so low it butts against my eye protection, which some have reported - considering I wear big-lensed 100% Glendales I was worried about this when I ordered online without trying it first. All-round fabulous helmet and a brilliant price on Mantel.
Comfort and fit are awesome
Better at stashing eyewear than Synthe
MIPS without the weird feeling on your head
Wider sides & less tapered at rear than Synthe
Superbly designed helmet, from aerodynamics to venting to fit. Light and comfortable with the added security of the MIPS Colour is lovely too
A great product with great service.. 10*. Will definitely shop here again!

Detailed product descriptionMIPS Spherical:
MIPS Spherical is a refinement and evolution of the standard MIPS system. In this sophisticated design, MIPS technology is integrated between 2 layers of EPS foam. This system protects the brain from the rotational forces of a fall by allowing 10 to 15 millimetres of movement between the helmet and the head. As this system is located between 2 EPS foam layers, you can experience the benefits of MIPS without compromising comfort and cooling performance.
The In-Mold Construction combines a sturdy polycarbonate outer shell with a shock-absorbing foam lining on the inside. Due to the fusing process it’s possible to create an efficient ventilation system, which allows the In-Mold helmets to be lighter and more cooling than traditional helmets.
Wind Tunnel Ventilation:
Giro helmets were designed with the help of Giro’s Wind Tunnel ventilation system. This system combines active vents with internal exhausts. This combination provides the cyclist with cool, refreshing air on and around their head, while warm and stale air is disposed of. The innovation of these vents turned out to be a huge success. Cyclists were immensely positive about it, they noticed a new air flow around their head which kept them cool!
