Giro Helios Spherical Helmet
No one wants to crash on their bike and even fewer people want to take an impact to the head when they crash. When it comes to safety products you hope to never test out to prove effectiveness, the bike helmet is at the top of the list.
The Giro Helios Spherical, Giro’s latest helmet offering, adds another level of safety to the bike helmet - literally.
Even one traumatic brain injury is too many. In its quest to reduce cerebral and head injuries whenever possible, Giro has teamed up with the brainiacs at MIPS to create what they believe to be groundbreaking innovation with the new Spherical Technology helmets.
Spherical Technology, you say? What’s that, you ask? Let’s dig in and find out.
By introducing a ball and socket design, Spherical Technology manages impact forces with two layers of impact absorbing material to take the brunt of any impact and spread it around the head to minimize direct damage. This, in addition to MIPS, makes a significant difference.
Ball and socket design means the outer layer of compressed foam protection rotates just a little bit. If you take a spill and your helmet strikes a rock, a tree or the ground, the outside of the helmet moves a few millimeters, spreading that energy and force away from the point of impact and around the head.
Neato, isn’t it? Added protection without compromising comfort, style, ventilation or weight.
The Helio Spherical helmet is one of two road helmets in Giro’s offerings. With 15 Wind Tunnel vents providing superb air flow around and through the helmet, you’ll be kept cool and dry during your ride - after all, being comfortable is almost as important and being safe.
Loaded up with standard features Giro is known for, like the Roc Loc 5 Air fit system and antimicrobial padding for top-notch comfort on pressure points and sweat absorption,
The leading independent helmet testing lab has given the Giro Helios Spherical a 5-Star rating.
Your safety and health isn’t just a priority for you and your family. Giro takes it just as seriously as you do - maybe more. The Giro Helios Spherical is testament to that.
