The Giro Cinder MIPS isn't just a good looking helmet, but boasts some great properties as well. The design is based on the immensely successful Synthe helmet, Giro's top of the line product. The Cinder is built using the so-called In-Mold construction which has a polycarbonate external shell fused to a shock absorbing foam liner on the inside. The addition of the MIPS system makes the Cinder as safe as can be!

The Giro Cinder MIPS helmet also has excellent breathability because of the Wind Tunnel ventilation. Active vents are combined with internal air channels to improve the overal ventilation. The Roc Loc 5 system ensures both the fit and vertical position of the helmet are easily adjusted, ensuring a perfect fit!

very comfortable, light and with Mips. Good price

Perfect fit

I have bought the fleuro yellow version to replace an old Atmos which had server me well for the last few years. This Cinder fits so much better than I expected and the colour helps me be seen better. The only downside is that it does have the mushroom effect, whether this is due to the mips cage or if it is the helmet itself. In saying that I have gotten a lot of compliments on it.

Good helmet

First impressions are good, I bought a Giro due to the fit. Comfortable and appears to be good quality. This helmet seems to be less well ventilated than my previous one - Specialized Prevail. Overall - very pleased

Great lightweight helmet

Another quality product from Giro. Helmet fits snugly and is comfortable and lightweight. MIPS provides added reassurance and yellow adds a splash of visibility to mainly black attire. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a helmet around the £100 region

Great looking lid that's very comfortable

Bought the helmet as a crash replacement for a Giro Savant. The Cinder is great from a high viz perspective, the MIPs should hopefully keep my brain safe and it's very comfortable. The helmet also looks very good and will help keep me visible.

Detailed product description

MIPS System
The MIPS system is a low-friction layer between the EPS core and the padding, which uses an array of elasticated attachments. This allows the helmet to move slightly during a crash (rotate and slide) in relation to your head, thereby absorbing more of the forces caused by said crash. This additional movement is an improvement over the regular helmets, as they only absorb the forces of an impact by compressing the EPS core.

In-Mold Construction:
The In-Mold Construction combines a strong polycarbonate outer shell with shock absorbing helmet padding. Thanks to its fusion process it is possible to sculpt a better ventilation system, so the In-Mold helmets are lighter and cooler than most traditional helmets.

Roc Loc 5:
After more than 2 years of development, Giro introduces the new Roc Loc 5. This cutting-edge fit adjust system offers a completely unique user experience with unparalleled levels of comfort, stability, adjustability, and weight saving measures. The Roc Loc 5 allows you to adjust the fit, tension, and vertical position of the helmet with a single hand. Tighten the dial a little during a challenging descent, and release a little for a more relaxed fit on a steep climb for instance! Even with all these new features, the Roc Loc 5 is almost 40% lighter than its predecessor, the Roc Loc 4.
