An updated classic. The MONTARO MIPS II bike helmet by GIRO now comes with a built-in MIPS impact protection system and a ROC LOC 5 AIR FIT system. The slim system combines a perfect fit with the MIPS protection system for additional protection from rotational forces without an extra layer of plastic inside the helmet. The compact size of the helmet offers deep coverage and a complete IN-MOLD hard shell coverage for high durability and a low weight. The combination of 16 large vents and deep air channels provides comfortable ventilation. The MONTARO can also be combined with goggles: It has goggle strap grippers on the back of the helmet, and a patented P.O.V. PLUS visor that allows you to lift the visor and place your goggles on the front of the helmet. A camera mount with breakaway feature is also integrated.

With the IN-MOLD construction, the robust polycarbonate outer shell is bonded to the impact-absorbing EPS inner shell in a single operation while it foams.
The liner is fused with the outer shell under high pressure and strong heat for a lasting connection. This makes the helmet even more resistant without adding weight. This production process also makes it possible to shape significantly better ventilation systems and vents. IN-MOLD helmets are therefore lighter than traditional helmets and have significantly better ventilation systems.
All Giro helmets come with a liner shell made of EPS (expanded polystyrene). EPS is the most efficient material for absorbing shock and impact energies. EPS is extremely lightweight and maintains its properties in a wide temperature range.
The purpose of the inner EPS shell is to prevent or reduce a rider’s head injuries in the event of a fall. The shell absorbs the impact energy and is thereby itself compressed or even destroyed (comparable to an airbag in a car). This is why you should always replace a bike helmet with a new one after an impact.
ROLL CAGE is a reinforcement made of particularly impact-resistant nylon that is embedded into the EPS foam liner of the best GIRO helmets. It provides a high level of stability and safety.
WHAT IS MIPS?
MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is a slip-plane system within the helmet. It is designed to rotate inside the helmet and thus slow down or reduce the impact energy acting on the brain, which helps reduce head injuries caused by rotational impacts.
WHY IS MIPS IMPORTANT?
When a head rotates quickly and comes to a sudden stop, the rotational acceleration may cause the brain tissue to experience high levels of strain. This stretching of the tissue caused by these motions may result in various types of brain injury. MIPS is designed with the intent to address rotational acceleration from impact.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
MIPS uses a slip-plane system that moves inside the helmet, mimicking the brain’s own protection system. This layer is designed to rotate inside the helmet with the intent to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head. Science tells us that if we can reduce the strains associated with rotational acceleration, we might reduce the risk and severity of brain injury.
ROC LOC 5 AIR FIT SYSTEM:
The adjustment system in a mini housing allows for easy adjustments with just two fingers. You can adjust it in height and width for a perfect fit.
Breathable liner pads for even more comfort and effective temperature and moisture management. Antibacterial and odour-inhibiting effect thanks to silver ions that are permanently embedded into the fibre.
A sophisticated ventilation system consisting of internal air channels and active vents allows cool, fresh air to circulate around the head while also allowing heat to escape. For great ventilation on exhausting rides.
The special design of the visor allows for up and down adjustments in three steps. In addition, the visor can be lifted so you can place your goggles on the front of the helmet. The system can also be operated with one hand and even while riding.
SUPER FIT ENGINEERING:
Helmets from GIRO have to undergo countless measurements and test rides. They are then optimally shaped and cut based on the results of those tests. Thanks to the well-designed shape and range of sizes, the GIRO helmet fits nearly any head.
