Giro Montaro MIPS MTB Helmet
- Optimized Ventilation: Strategic vent locations and deep interior channels combine with the Roc Loc Air fit system, which suspends the helmet a few millimeters above the rider’s head, allowing an unimpeded flow of cool air.
- Superior Sweat Management: Hydrophilic, anti-microbial pads absorb ten times more sweat than standard urethane pads.
- Full Goggle Integration: Rubber strap grippers on the rear of the helmet and a P.O.V. Plus visor that allows riders to lift visor and rest goggles on the front of the helmet.
- MIPS Technology: MIPS stands for Multi-Directional Impact Protection System. There are three main components to a MIPS-equipped helmet: the interior foam liner, the Low Friction Liner and an elastomeric attachment system between them. In an angled impact, the elastomeric attachment system stretches to allow the interior foam liner to rotate independently around the rider’s head and redirect energy. Although the system only moves a few millimeters Giro’s testing shows that helmets equipped with this technology can reduce the amount of rotational force that may be transferred to the brain in certain impacts.
These Helmets are certified with a European CE EN1078 standard. This is a European standard and although the helmet is perfectly safe to use, specific countries may have their own certification which is legally required if you intend to wear the helmet recreationally or in a competitive racing environment. If you are unsure, please check your specific country requirements and check with the manufacturer to see if the helmet has received any additional certification.
