Brand Giro
Type of Racing Helmet All-round helmet
Weight 300 grams
Extra protection Yes


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!

Great Helmet, very comfortable

Brought Yellow one to be highly visible over the winter months, it is very comfortable, easy to adjust, slightly reduced airflow over my Synthe to keep my head a bit warmer. Overall a great helmet that I'd recommend.

Good comfortable fit

Like the styling though purchased this predominantly for the MIPS technology (which hopefully I'll never need to appreciate). Very comfortable with an easy toggle at the rear of the helmet to adjust tension around the head.


  • Good fit
  • Looks good

giro cinder NICE!

i liked the way my old giro savant fitted so i thought i would stick with giro and the cinder seemed to fit the bill nicely for colour, looks and my price point and i was not disappointed. the roc loc 5 is nice to adjust and fine tune fit, weather mips works or not i don't know but it can't heart. dose look a bit mushroomie but i think most helmets do. mantel were great good price, packed well and fast delivery

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.
