Features and technical details
Giro Synthe II Helmet (MIPS)The Giro Synthe II Helmet (MIPS) packs in the safety features to keep you safer on your ride. And it's comfortable and streamlined too, ensuring every time you hop on your bike, you'll barely notice it's there. Always a favourite with cyclists who demand both comfort and performance, the Synthe design gets some tweaks to make it better than ever. The Synthe II Helmet (MIPS), is equipped with the MIPS® (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) brain protection system. This works alongside the In-Mould polycarbonate shell and Thermoformed SL Roll Cage™ to deliver superb levels of impact absorption and head protection in the event of a crash. MIPS TechnologyThe Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is a proven system that reduces the rotational forces on the brain when you're involved in a crash. The Rivale with MIPS technology is able to slide relative to the head in the case of a crash and as a result, the forces are absorbed and redirected to prevent them from being transmitted to the brain.In the event of a fall, the MIPS equipped helmet provides up to a 10% improvement in protection from certain impacts. Fast and CoolIt's not all about protection though. You'll also be pleased to find the Synthe II is fast and fresh. The compact design slips through the air with minimal drag, ensuring very little wasted watts as you pick up speed. And not just that, a total of 19 Wind Tunnel™ vents and carefully designed internal channels create a rush of air over the head, keeping you feeling great as you warm up. X-Static® anti-microbial padding is also there to keep you feeling comfortable. Quick to wick away sweat before discomfort sets in, it's also great at preventing bacterial build-up that can cause an itchy head. Cool, dry and fresh. Perfect. Roc Loc® 5 Air MIPSInside the Synthe II is the light and airy Roc-Loc® 5 Air fit system. This is the industry benchmark in comfort, stability, adjustability and weight savings. In addition to enhancing fit and comfort, Roc Loc® 5 allows you to easily custom tune the fit tension and the fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds using a single hand. And it’s lighter than comparable systems too, making it the ultimate in skull-hugging luxury.Features:Integrated MIPS® brain protection systemFeatherweight webbing with Slimline™ buckleX-Static® anti-microbial paddingIn-Mould polycarbonate shell with EPS linerThermoformed SL Roll Cage™ reinforcementRoc Loc® 5 Air MIPS19 Wind Tunnel™ vents with internal channellingCE EN1078Weight: 250g (size medium CE)Buy Giro Helmets from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World's Largest Online Bike Store.
