Key features include the Roc Loc® 5 fit system, which allows you to easily dial-in both fit tension and adjust vertical position with a single hand.

  • In-mold polycarbonate shell with EPS liner
  • Thermoformed SL Roll Cage™ reinforcement

Fit System:

  • Roc Loc® 5

Mr Mills Helmet is light & comfortable, very good fit easy to adjust, looks good too, would recommend to others.
Tim Comfortable lid with excellent safety features at a great Sale price. Delivered promptly and without hassle. Very happy.
Adam An excellent lid for an excellent price. Bought as a replacement for a [white] Cinder MIPS that saved my head from an autumn training ride crash, it is a perfect fit (size S) for me, made really secure by the very adjustable RocLoc5 and sturdy but comfortable straps. The MIPS system is barely noticeable when riding, but there's a little less room for a cap or winter hat (fine for my Buff). Having said that, riding during the hot 2018 summer the cooling was great and I never overheated or had any problems with sweat affecting vision. Giro helmets have saved my head a few times over the years and this is a really comfortable, lightweight, aero and well vented addition to the range, which made the offer price from Merlin impossible to ignore. Thanks!
Mr A Bought for my daughter, great helmet at great price. Fast delivery as usual.
Mark Brilliant, light, airy and comfortable. Great value for the price.
Bunchy Excellent value for money, great fitting helmet that doesn`t move whilst out on long rides, light weight and easily adjustable.
Man 'o Exmoor Very impressed with the fit, the adjustable head band on the inside allows you to dial a snug fit and it is very easy to adjust on the go. The ventilation is good, the recent hot weather was a good test for that. After a few miles on the bike I forget that I am wearing a helmet, so for me that tells a lot about the design and the quality of the helmet.
Mr Kühn Muito Bom ! Tecnologia MIPS, Eu recomendo.
Richard Love this helmet. Really light, well ventilated, and looks cool too.
Dene Light, comfortable, and well made
Vitor Very nice helmet, and for this price, unbeatable
M Ruff Really comfy helmet, stylish looking too. Fantastic price and prompt delivery.
Mr Kitanovski The Giro Cinder MIPS helmet is definitely a professional helmet for a price of an entry level helmet.
Mr Vojsk I ordered the Cinder at Merlin Cycles at a great price. Having owned Giro helmets for some 20 years, I can summarise that the Cinder is a comfortable helmet with some aero characteristics, the dependable RocLoc closure system. Its disadvantage is the mediocre ventilation , for some relative wide looks. Overall comfortable, much cheaper than a Synthe, mediocre ventilation.
jamie This is a quality helmet. The fit is excellent and I bought it during the hottest period of the year so far and I ride in central London but my head has been reasonably cool I also own a Giro Synthe but this almost as good in terms of quality. Super fast service from Merlin, arrived next day after the order.
Mr Kirk Very comfortable helmet and good ventilation.
Mr Tomala Very comfortable, light and well-ventilated helmet. The adjustment is also very good. Apart from that it is very nice looking :)
Mr Tomala A perfect helmet at a great price. Very fast shipment and great customer service.
Mr Gibson Looks a little bulky when you first put the helmet on, but it's so comfortable when wearing it you almost forget you're wearing it.
Mel Looks well but the finish is a little bit rough in places. Good fit. Straps and adjustment are good. Cannot comment on ventilation.
Mr Powell Great fit, light weight, good quality and very comfortable. Lots of scope for adjustment. Looks very smart too.
Elizabeth Nice MIPS helmet good fit and comfort out of the box.
Mr Allen Good looking helmet with an excellent fit, most comfortable one I've owned, at a very affordable price. Hope I never have to call on Mr MIPS
Mr Hamilton Bought this to replace my old Giro helmet. Usual Giro high standards, it's light, comfortable and looks great. The Giro Loc system works brilliantly, there is just enough removable padding on the inside and it's also got MIPS. At this price it was a no brainer and I'm really happy with my purchase. Price and delivery speed from Merlin, as usual, was great.
