Giro Aerohead Ultimate MIPS Helmet
Giro Aerohead Ultimate MIPS Helmet
Giro's fastest ever time-trial helmet.
Aerohead (TM) tops the podium in speed, weight, style and comfort. More than seconds ahead. Years ahead.
Giro pioneered the aerodynamic helmet category with the original Advantage in 1985, and now they are redefining it with the new Aerohead (TM) Ultimate MIPS - their fastest time trial helmet ever. Giro's designers leveraged every resource available to create a helmet that tops the podium in speed, weight, style and comfort. The shell is constructed with TeXtreme (TM) carbon fiber, an advanced material that is lighter and stronger than other carbon composites.
The wrap-around eye shield offers an unblocked field of view with a huge aerodynamic benefit and the shield is made by ZEISS (R) Optics for unrivaled clarity. A magnetic anchor attachment keeps the shield secure, yet easy to remove, and it can be stored in the "flipped up" position. Other stand out features include a Roc Loc (R) Air fit system and a hydrophilic, anti-microbial brow pad that can absorb up to ten-times the amount of sweat as standard urethane padding.
Additionally, this helmet is quipped with the MIPS system to redirect impact energy, providing more protection in certain impacts. What is MIPS? MIPS is a Brain Protection System Rotational motion can cause brain injuries The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10-15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact MIPS adds protection Textreme (TM) Carbon Fiber A Lighter, Stiffer & Stronger Shell. TeXtreme's wide and flat fibers fit closer together than conventional round carbon fibers and require less of the resin used to bind fibers together.
In the case of the Avance MIPS, TeXtreme enabled us to create an ultralight shell that's tougher, stiffer and stronger than Giro's offered before. Most importantly, TeXtreme offers impressive high-energy impact management. X-Static Fiber X-Static FIBER - X-Static fibers use natural silver to provide heat conductive and anti-microbial properties to help keep your helmet free of odor-causing bacteria and fungus Lenses by Zeiss Optics Shield with magnetic attachment The wrap-around eye shield offers an unblocked field of view with a huge aerodynamic benefit and the shield is made by ZEISS (R) Optics for unrivaled clarity.
A magnetic anchor attachment keeps the shield secure, yet easy to remove, and it can be stored in the "flipped up" position. Hydrophilic Padding The Hydrophilic Pad can absorb up to 10 times its own weight in water, helping you manage sweat while riding. The pad retains moisture to prevent sweat from dripping into your eyes, and then dries quickly.
The antimicrobial, X-Static lining helps to reduce odor, keeping your helmet fresh. ROC LOC (R) AIR FIT SYSTEM This revolutionary fit system adds a new dimension to helmet performance by enhancing cooling, as well as fit comfort and stability. Using a patented design that suspends the helmet just slightly off the top of the skull, Roc Loc (R) Air allows cool airflow to pass directly over your head, further enhancing the performance of vents and internal channeling that exhaust heat out of the helmet.
Fit and feel adjustments mimic the Roc Loc (R) 5, allowing you to easily custom tune fit tension and fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds using a single hand. Super Fit (TM) Engineering Our proprietary Super Fit (TM) sizing system is based on "human scale factors" data and over 25 years of handcrafting helmets. By creating helmet molds in up to 4 adult sizes to match the human body's form, our Super Fit (TM) sizes comfortably and securely fit riders, and feel like they are custom made just for you.
Giro Crash Replacement Scheme If you have an accident in any helmet it's a good idea to replace it. Giro offer the peace of mind that if you have an accident wearing one of their helmets they will replace it at a reduced price. Find out more here.

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.
