isabella B.wrote a review of Giro Switchblade MIPS Helmet on August 28, 2017
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I have had the Bell Super 2r for the past few years and love that i'm able to wear it as a regular skid lid and then add the chin bar for full face protection. I was excited to give the new and improved Switchblade a chance. The thing that may not be clear from photos is that the sides of the helmet COVER YOUR EARS. It's not your traditional mtb helmet when the chin guard is removed. So when I say "a lot of helmet", what I mean is that you still have a LOT of protection when it's disassembled which, for some like myself, will defeat the whole purpose of having a half-and-half helmet. I imagine there are some people who will still love the added over-the-ear protection.
