Description

Giro Switchblade MIPS Helmet

The Giro Switchblade MIPS Helmet is a downhill certified full face helmet with a removable chinbar. Everything about the Switchblade is optimised for the descent which is why it?s certified to the highest levels of protection standards with and without the chinbar.

Ventilation and Protection Security

This 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 whilst also providing certified safety coverage, even if you do not use the chinbar.

Easy to Remove and Re-install

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 descent. When climbing back up the mountain, the chinbar is easy to remove and is done so by simply pushing the buttons under the chinbar, rotating upwards, and then removing. It is just as easy to re-install and when fitted provides rigid and reassuring chin protection.

Technologies:

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.
