THE SWITCHBLADE MIPS® IS AN ASTM DOWNHILL-CERTIFIED FULL-FACE HELMET WITH A REMOVABLE CHINBAR, SO YOU CAN EASILY SWITCH TO ROWDY WHEN IT'S TIME TO DESCEND.
EVERYTHING ABOUT THE SWITCHBLADE IS OPTIMIZED FOR THE DESCENT, AND THAT'S WHY IT'S CERTIFIED TO CPSC, EN-1078 AND ASTM-1952-DH WITH AND WITHOUT THE CHINBAR.
The chinbar is easy to remove - just push the buttons under the chinbar, rotate up, and take off - and it's just as easy to reinstall. Another boast-worthy feature on the Switchblade MIPS® is the Roc Loc Air DH fit system, which has a bumper around the dial to prevent accidental adjustments if your helmet contacts your backpack or neck brace - all while keeping you cool. When the chinbar comes off, Wind Tunnel cheek pad ventilation adds even more cooling power as you start to climb. Plus, the full-cut style gives this helmet an aggressive look and provides ASTM certified coverage even when the chinbar is removed. When your ride is all about descending, your helmet should be too, and the Switchblade MIPS® is the only removable chinbar helmet that is truly built for the down.

ROC LOC® AIR DH 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® Air DH 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 5, allowing you to easily custom tune fit tension and fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds using a single hand.
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 with this technology can reduce the amount of rotational force that may be transferred to rider's brain in certain impacts.
In-Mold Construction fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet's impact-absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows for better ventilation systems, making in-mold helmets lighter and cooler than traditional helmets.
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.
Giro helmets are developed utilizing our proprietary Wind Tunnel ventilation system. This elaborate design combines active vents in the helmets shell with exhaust channels inside the helmet that thrust fresh, cool air over and around the rider's head while forcing heat and stale air out. It's the most effective cooling system available, and a difference you can feel every time you ride.
Our 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 blow. The design allows you to easily adjust your visor with one hand riding.
