The Synthe MIPS is Giro's most performance-oriented helmet to date. And now it's equipped with a new Multi-Directional Impact Protection SystemSuitable for all conditions, all the time, the Synthe MIPS rivals standard road helmets with its exceptional ventilation, aerodynamics, low weight and good looks.

The Synthe is 16% faster and 2% cooler than the Aeon, 13% lighter than the Air Attack and has a sleek, aesthetic design for high efficiency. Elaborate internal channeling and 19 gigantic vents provide excellent flow-through and take cooling power to new levels. Perforated side panels draw more air inside the helmet for consistent airflow at any speed and help reduce drag. Roc Loc Air retention system is fully adjustable and creates a gap between the forehead and the inside of the helmet to further enhance the cooling equation. There are eyewear docks in the side panels for stashing your sunglasses, and a comfortable fit is achieved, thanks to the X-Static internal padding, Slimline webbing and an ultra-light buckle. The Synthe MIPS is the most comprehensive road helmet on the market.

MIPS Technology

Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is a technology composed of three main components: an interior foam liner, a Low Friction Liner and an elastomeric attachment system between them. In an angled impact, the elastomeric attachment system stretches to allow the interior foam liner to rotate independently around a rider's head and redirect energy. The system moves only a few millimeters, but Giro's testing has shown that helmets equipped with this technology can reduce the amount of rotational force that may be transferred to the brain in certain impacts.

  • In-Mold Polycarbonate Shell reinforces the area around the vents and ribs, creating a one-piece exoskeleton, which allows the helmet to be lighter, more durable and better ventilated than traditional designs
  • Impact absorbing EPS liner adds reinforcement in crucial areas
  • Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) reduces the rotational forces on the brain caused by angled impacts to the head
  • 19 Wind Tunnel vents with internal channels thrust cool, fresh air over and around your head while forcing heat and stale air out
  • Integrated Aero Mesh side panels control the airflow's boundary layer and provide further cooling
  • Eyewear Docking Ports for stashing glasses when not in use
  • Impact absorbing, antimicrobial X-Static padding offers unprecedented comfort and manages moisture
  • Custom ultra-light buckle for weight saving
  • Slimline webbing with retainer is ultra-light, won't twist and requires no adjustment
  • Roc Loc Air fit system:
    • Suspends the helmet slightly above the head, creating an optimized path for air to flow through the helmet
    • Venturi effect increases efficiency of the vents and internal ventilation channels without creating drag
    • Easily adjusts both fit tension and vertical position with a single hand
  • Certified CPSC
