Giro Switchblade MIPS Helmet

Giro's Switchblade™ MIPS is an ASTM DH certified full face helmet with a removable chinbar. Everything about the Switchblade is optimised for the descent which is why it’s certified to CPSC, EN-1078 and ASTM-1952-DH standards with and without the chinbar.

Speaking of the chinbar, it is easy to remove by pushing the buttons under the chinbar, rotate up, and remove. It is just as easy to reinstall too.

The helmet features the Roc Loc® Air DH fit system, which has a bumper around the dial to prevent unintentional adjustments if your helmet comes into contact with your backpack or neck brace. When the chinbar is removed, Wind Tunnel™ cheek pad ventilation adds cooling power as you start to climb. The full-cut style gives this helmet an aggressive look providing ASTM certified coverage even if you do not use the chinbar.

When your ride is all about descending, so should your helmet and the Switchblade MIPS is the only removable chinbar helmet that is truly built for the down.

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 odour, keeping your helmet fresh.

P.O.V. Plus: Giro's P.O.V. Plus visor features an adjustment mechanism that lets you move the visor up and down in indexed steps. These steps include three riding positions plus a high position for goggle storage above your brow. The design allows you to easily adjust your visor with one hand while riding.

MIPS®: All Giro helmets are designed to reduce as much energy as possible while meeting and exceeding stringent safety standards. The goal of Giro’s 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 rider’s brain in certain impacts.
