Detailed product description
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.
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.
