Tyrant MIPS Helmet
From backyard jump jams, to sessioning your favorite piece of singletrack, Giro's new Tyrant is designed to meet the needs of today's progressive trail riders. Though the style is reminiscent of old-school BMX helmets, it comes equipped with modern safety features like Spherical MIPS and progressive foam layering that handles both high- and low-speed impacts.
The Tyrant may bear a resemblance to the Switchblade full-face helmet without the chinbar, but it's actually significantly lighter and has better ventilation. You'll still enjoy added coverage for the sides and back of your head, but it's a bit more practical for trail riding, pump track sessions, or dialing in your jumping skills. The adjustable visor mates perfectly with goggles, while the Roc Loc fit system makes it easy to get a secure and comfortable fit.
As far as protective features go, the Tyrant gets Giro's latest and greatest. It starts with the new MIPS Spherical system, which uses two distinct foam layers that work like a ball and socket to redirect impact energy in a crash. The outer layer is EPS, which is well-suited to high-speed crashes. The other is a lower-density EPP foam that addresses the low-speed, roll-around-in-the-dirt type of spills that can happen when you're learning a new feature or practicing your manuals. The whole package is wrapped in a tough outer shell with a polycarbonate lower wrap that adds durability while keeping the weight down.
