Construction: in-mould Fit system: Roc Loc 5 Ventilation: 25 vents Add extra reinforcement without excess bulk or weight Premium helmet to enjoy the speed and thrill of the open road Superior technology, tour de france-proven performance, and fantastic style are why SO many riders choose the savant; a premium helmet to enjoy the speed and thrill of the open road.The savant mips offers an added measure of protection in certain impacts. All Giro helmets are designed to reduce AS much energy AS possible while meeting and exceeding stringent safety standards. The goal of mips-equipped helmets is to reduce rotational forces. Giro believes that helmets equipped with this technology can reduce the amount of rotational force that may be transferred to the brain in certain impacts. The helmet features fantastic styling and exposed i.C.R. Carbon fibre detailing. There is i.C.R. In-mould carbon reinforcement inserts, and an advanced internal roll cage, to both add extra reinforcement without excess bulk or weight.Made with an advanced five piece hard body moulding, this helmet also has in-mould technology that fuses the liner with the shell and creates a true exo-skeleton, adding strength and durability. The 26 wind tunnel design vents and internal cross-rib-channelling draw air through the helmet for excellent cooling whilst riding, while the rocloc 5 fits like a glove allowing lateral and vertical adjustment.

Nowadays Giro are one of the largest helmet (and other cycling apparel) manufacturers in the world. They began life in the garage of Jim Gentes in 1985, California; his aim was to create a lightweight yet safe helmet, and from this goal the Giro Prolight was created. In 1994 the famous Roc-Loc system was launched, to keep the helmet in the correct position, maintaining comfort and safety. It enabled the wearer to fine tune the position of the helmet, helping to ensure a custom fit for every rider. Throughout it's history Giro has strived to create functional yet safe products, which also appear cool to encourage riders to use them. Sometimes it pays off (the Air Attack and the Xen) and sometimes not (The Fat Hat). Other innovations include the Aerohead, which helped win Greg Lemond the Tour de France by 8 seconds, and the Switchblade with removable facial protection. Nowadays Giro produce a line of cycling gloves, introduced in 2008, shoes (2010) and clothing lines (2013). In recent years Giro have introduced MIPs technology to their higher end helmets, helping to reduce the crash impact on a wearer's head and neck.
