The Aether Helmet (MIPS) is designed with a host of features to provide you with the ultimate combination of protection, fit and ventilation. First, let's look at protection. The Aether is engineered with a dual-density EPS foam liner that makes it capable of absorbing a wide range of impact energies. Meanwhile, the 6-piece outer is reinforced with a shatter-resistant AURA reinforcing arch giving a boost to structural integrity in the event of an impact. Protection is then bolstered by Giro's proprietary MIPS Spherical technology - this design sees the Multi-Directional Impact Protection System deployed between the layers of EPS foam rather than immediately next to the head which enables Giro to maintain incredible cooling airflow and comfort while offering impeccable head protection.
What is MIPS?
• MIPS is a Brain Protection System
• Rotational motion can cause brain injuries
• The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact
• MIPS adds protection
Cool and Comfortable
So that's the protection, now let's look at ventilation and fit. As mentioned, the unique MIPS design has allowed Giro to maintain excellent airflow inside the helmets. This is fully taken advantage of with 11 very large Wind Tunnel vents over the helmet, all leading to internal channelling that forces air across the scalp. With the extensive venting, you'll enjoy a cool head even in the warmest conditions and the heat of racing. The very large and airy vents are made possible thanks to the support of the AURA reinforcing arch, maintaining structural integrity while giving scope to increase vent size.
Roc-Loc® 5 fit system
Now let's turn to the fit and the Roc-Loc® 5 fit system. This is the industry benchmark in comfort, stability, adjustability and weight savings. In addition to enhancing the fit and comfort of helmets, Roc Loc® 5 allows you to easily custom tune the fit tension and the fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds using a single hand. And it’s lighter than comparable systems too, making it the ultimate in skull-hugging luxury.
Giro Crash Replacement Scheme
