Description

Worship your brain.

You count yourself as a disciple of freeride and enduro racing and guys like Gwin and Semenuk, so don't cut corners on head protection when you're launching off features and sending lines inspired by them. Replace an old lid with the Giro Disciple MIPS Helmet to make sure your grey matter stays where you need it when a big day doesn't exactly goes as planned. Since you'll (hopefully) spend most of your ride time never needing the Disciple, Giro also made it light and breathable, so you'll stay comfortable and cool during the majority of the time when everything goes to plan.

Rather than choosing the traditional In-Mold construction most helmets use, Giro opted for a fiberglass shell for the Disciple MIPS instead. Light and strong, the shell comes equipped to throw down with rocks, gravel, and the occasional tree, with an EPS foam liner for extra backup. Giro even beefed up the jaw area with extra Vinyl nitrile padding for handlebar and tree branch bashings, and it made sure to make the integrated P.O.V. camera mount able to break away in the event of a crash to prevent further damage to both the mount and your noggin.

As if that weren't enough, Giro went the extra mile to protect your cognitive abilities by adding MIPS technology to the Disciple as well. Now nearly ubiquitous across the helmet world, MIPS appears in the Disciple in the form of a thin inner basket, constructed to rotate upon impact to reduce the brain-damaging energy generated by certain impacts. It's far from fail-safe, but it leaves you a hell of a lot more protected in some crashes than helmets of five years ago might've. Of course, Giro made room for some fun too. Built-in speakers keep your ride playlist cranking while you rally, and Fit Kit padding makes sure the helmet sits comfortably atop your dome for hours on-end.

  • Back up your brain on your next rowdy DH or enduro day
  • Lightweight fiberglass shell can handle big hits
  • MIPS technology works to minimize damaging rotational energy
  • Vinyl nitrile padding along jaw line guards your smile
  • Multiple vents keep air moving so you stay cool
  • Built-in speakers and P.O.V. mount keep your media with you

Joe Manship is the BEST!!!

    I love my new MIPS equipped grip helmet. Joe did a terrific job helping me find a great deal and the exact piece of gear I needed!!! I will definitely be shopping at back country again. My customer service and purchase experience were amazing!!! I'm very thankful to be provided such top notch customer service! Thanks again Joe and Backcountry!

    Breaks in nicely

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I thought I needed to return the medium after first trying it on. However, it packed in nicely and the large would have definitely been too big. Love the style and feel of this helmet.

    Comfy For All-Day Riding

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this as a gift and here is the feedback:
    "The Giro Disciple may be the most comfortable full face I have ever worn. I have worn it during lift-served days in the bike park, for shuttle laps, and during long enduro descents where I wanted more protection. It is well-ventilated, the liner is nice and plush, and the MIPS liner provides the same protection once reserved for much more expensive lids."

    Nice Fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great for those downhill trails where I don't plan on pedaling much. Cash me on the lifts with this lid.

    Worth it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've worn this helmet 3-4 times now, on both lift-assisted trails as well as some enduro trail riding. I'm pleasantly surprised how well-ventilated and light it is, considering it's a full-face helmet. I've worn it on 80 degree days, and while it's hot, anything is going to be hot going up and down dusty dirt trails in the direct sun. It's incredibly comfortable (not to mention awfully badass looking) and I couldn't be happier with it!



    I would say to size down if you're debating between two sizes or on the cusp... the padding around the jaw packs out nicely.

    Worth it

    Heavy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Like most full face helmets, this thing is quite heavy. that is my only complaint. OTherwise a fantastic helmet. if you're in between sizes, size down. The pads pack out nicely.

    Bang for your Buck

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The weight on this helmet is great, it's not insanely light but after a full day riding chairs, I didn't feel like my neck was going to give out.

    Also, as another reviewer mentioned, it will feel super snug at first, but by the end of the first day, I could talk and move my lower jaw comfortably. I'd definitely recommend it.

    Great helmet for the money

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This is my second fullface helmet and so far so good after 3 rides. The first time I tried it on it was pretty snug, mostly in the cheek region but I think that over time this will break in. Other than it being tight on my cheeks it fits great. The helmet is very light and the MIPS is a great additional feature for little not a ton of extra cash. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase.

    Cypher Reincarnated

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love my Giro Cypher helmet, I have had it for 4 years now and it was just time for retirement. Typically I replace my helmets every 3-4 years depending on use and abuse, and sadly it was just time.
    If the Cypher was still available, I would have bought another one.
    The Disciple helmet is just the Cypher, but with Mips as a mandatory feature. Don't get me wrong, I like things that make me safer, but maybe I am not 100% convinced of its benefits and I feel like the MIPS system is maybe a touch noisier than a non MIPS helmet. All that aside, you are hard pressed to find a helmet that offers the kind of Value that comes with the Disciple.

    Comfortable
    Well Padded
    Nicely Ventilated
    Not Too Heavy and not too expensive.

    I always wear a medium and the new Disciple is no different, so it fits true to size.
