Giro Switchblade MIPS MTB Helmet
Giro Switchblade MIPS MTB Helmet
The Switchblade™ MIPS® is an astm downhill certified full-face helmet with a removable chinbar so you can easily switch to rowdy when it's time to descend.
The chinbar is easy to remove just push the buttons under the chinbar, rotate up, and take off and it's just as easy to reinstall. Another boast-worthy feature on the Switchblade Mips® is the Roc Loc Air DH fit system, which has a bumper around the dial to prevent accidental adjustments if your helmet contacts your backpack or neck brace all while keeping you cool. When the chinbar comes off, Wind Tunnel cheek pad ventilation adds even more cooling power as you start to climb. Plus, the full-cut style gives this helmet an aggressive look and provides ASTM certified coverage even when the chinbar is removed. When your ride is all about descending, your helmet should be too, and the Switchblade Mips is the only removable chinbar helmet that is truly built for the down.

Sizing Information for Giro Helmets:
Pete Quality bit of kit, snug to get on (minus chin bar) but once on awesome fit. Chin bar only took a couple of goes to to be able to do without removing helmet too. And at this price unbeatable 😉👍
Mr McCallum Very pleased with this product, I’m a 58cm head and the medium fits perfectly. Comes well packaged, and with a carry bag. Been riding with it for a couple of weeks now and its well vented and comfortable. Definitely gives me more confidence. Chin d-ring chin strap take a little getting used to but on the upside feels very secure.
Mr Cowen I fell off at speed wearing this helmet and I'm pretty sure it has meant I've only got a broken tooth, not a broken jaw. Would highly reccomend!
Anthony Good helmet, comfortable and not too hot. Easy to remove chin piece.
Mr Horrell Perfect fit, nice and light , very happy with it , super fast delivery
Mr goldsmith One of the best converting helmets I have used snug fit. Build quality is amazing and one of the easiest chin guards to remove can even be done when wearing the helmet
peter Wanted this helmet for a while due to its versatility of being a mips open face lid and a downhill full face as well.feels very comfortable and safe when worn although it does get quite hot around the cheeks at times .price paid was by far the cheapest I could find as well
Paul hartburn Great helmet very comfortable. Comes with a spare visor and a cloth carry bag. Chin guard is easy to fit and remove with the helmet on. Double d ring fastener
colin Not used yet but on the first impressions it looks well made and pretty robust. The chin guard comes off easy enough and back on without taking the helmet off. I like the second visor included with the GoPro mount. The helmet is comfy seems well ventilated and light enough. Face section is quite airy without being exposed. Inner MIPs system works well even just testing movement by hand. Minor grumbles are it creaks a little, but that’s par for the course for a removable chin section and I am not a fan of the double d chin straps, although they are super safe which I guess matters most.
Robert Comfortable, versatile helmet, I wear all the year round, mostly without chin guard. I even wear in hot weather without issues. I like having the extra ear protection. Chin guard goes on easily and securely when needed. More expensive than the Tyrant but better made imo.
Mr Murray Excellent piece of kit, my second one, great price, fast delivery. Chinbar cracked on old lid after a face plant.
Mr Greener Excellent helmet. In particular having a chin bar you can remove and place in your pack makes it very versatile. I find it comfortable and sturdy.
Mr San Buenaventura Very light & solid helmet for MTB. I will recommend it to my friends.
Mr Kenny It's a nice bucket, pretty comfy and only took a few min's to get used to as it feels like wearing a full face without your mouth being covered. I can see it being a bit warmer than a proper open face in the summer, but if your buying this helmet, then it's protection your after anyway and your going to sweat riding Enduro regardless. Chin bar is surprisingly easy to remove and put back on and still leaves plenty of room for glasses, sunnies, goggles, etc. I should have bought it sooner
