Syntax MIPS Helmet

With the Syntax MIPS Helmet, Giro manages make a sleek and stylish helmet that offers deeper coverage for the sides and back of the head, generous ventilation, MIPS technology, and a slim profile—all at a price that shows advanced head protection doesn't need to cost a fortune.

Giro achieves this using their In-Mold construction process that fuses a tough polycarbonate shell to impact-absorbing EPS foam while inside the mold, creating a strong helmet that has extensive coverage and improved ventilation without any excess bulk. On the inside of the EPS liner, Giro incorporates their Roc Loc 5 Air MIPS retention system for a highly adjustable fit that delivers great stability and long range comfort. By integrating MIPS with the retention system, Giro improves the overall fit without sacrificing the ability of the MIPS system to disperse rotational forces in the event of an angled impact.

With 25 Wind Tunnel vents that channel incoming air over and around your head while pushing hot and stale air out, the Syntax MIPS stays cool even when pushing your limits on warmer days. Additionally, the CoolFit anti-microbial padding effectively manages sweat to further aid in keeping you cool, all while resisting odor build-up over time.

  • A cycling helmet that blends style, function, and value
  • Sleek design offers extra coverage without extra bulk
  • In-mold construction enhances durability and ventilation
  • Roc Loc 5 system allows a comfortable, secure, adjustable fit
  • Integrated MIPS can help disperse rotational impact forces
  • Wind Tunnel vents channel airflow to keep you cool
  • Anti-microbial padding manages sweat and odor
  • Lightweight straps and slim buckle are comfortable on the skin

Terrific for Tall Heads

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

My head isn't so much large as tall, and I've always struggled to find helmets that fit: large sizes are wobbly, and anything smaller tends to sit on the top of my head like a bottle cap.

This helmet, though, is perfect—comfortable, with adequate coverage for my tall-above-the-ears head (despite a relatively low profile), and easy to dial into position.

I ended up returning it, but only because I bought a Giro Vanquish at the same time which fit similarly well, and I opted not to keep both. If I were to give up the Vanquish, I'd be back to the Syntax in a heartbeat. Highly recommended.

Great helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large and XLarge

I've had 4 helmets before this one. My previous ones seemed to sit on top of my head and not come down far enough even though they were a large. I was looking at a Bontrager Spectre but I had braids installed and even a large wouldn't fit. And it was an extra $50. The XL size of this fits perfectly. I purchased a L as well when I'm without braids. It's a good price. It fits very well. And I like the adjustments.

I'm so glad to see a post about braids! I had to return my last helmet because of bigger hair, and glad to know I'm not alone :D

My head measures 59cm.
59cm is at the end of the range for medium and the start of the range for a large. I’ve always worn medium helmets but never owned a giro lid. Which size would be most appropriate?

My head measurements are 59 also.

I ordered the large. It feels just slightly too large. I have a medium on the way. I’ll let you know if you haven’t already purchased.

Being afraid of how bulky a helmet was going to look on me; I looked at many styles. Ordered this one for its sleek look and once it arrived and i tested it out; I love it so much more! Sleek, light & comfortable!

Light & fits well

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love the fit of the it! Very light but feels secure and durable.
