Why We Like The Switchblade MIPS Helmet
If you've got a weekend in the desert and some rowdy tricks you're itching to try, don't cut corners on your lid. Giro's brand new Switchblade MIPS Helmet encourages you and your DH monster to get rowdy and send it when you're out on slickrock, but it also backs you up with full face coverage, a removable chin guard, and the added protection of MIPS to help you stay safe when you crash hard.
Not every weekend involves staring down do-or-die lines, which is why Giro made the Switchblade's chinbar removable. Snap it off quickly before you head out on a mellower trail ride and enjoy added ventilation from Giro's Wind Tunnel design, included specifically to provide as much airflow as possible on hot, sunny climbs. Giro's tried-and-true Roc Loc Air fit system makes an appearance on the Switchblade as well, but it comes tweaked to DH standards with a bumper protecting the dial from being unintentionally moved when it comes into contact with your pack or body armor.
