New for 2020, the Radix MIPS is a trail riding helmet combining the lighter weight and ventilation of a XC mountain bike helmet with the increased coverage and durability of a freeride helmet.
Giro's newest Roc Loc 5.5 MIPS system combines fit and positioning adjustments with MIPS technology for an added measure of protection in the event of an angled impact.
The outer Hardbody shell extends to the inside of the helmet, and is molded from a tough polycarbonate that's fused permanently to the EPS foam liner by the In-Mold process to enhance durability and ventilation without excess bulk.
While all Giro helmets are designed to reduce as much impact energy as possible and exceed US and EU government safety standards, this helmet is also equipped with MIPS to redirect impact energy, providing more protection in certain impacts.
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.
