Giro Switchblade MIPS MTB Helmet - 2017
The Switchblade™ MIPS is our new ASTM downhill certified full face helmet with a removable chinbar. Everything about the Switchblade is optimized for the descent, and that’s why it’s certified to CPSC, EN-1078 and ASTM-1952-DH with and without the chinbar. The chinbar is easy to remove—just push the buttons under the chinbar, rotate up, and remove—and it’s just as easy to reinstall.
The Switchblade MIPS features the new 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.

Best helmet I have ever owned
After buying the helmet, I almost regretted the purchase for a moment. Then this pretty thing came in my mail and I've been in love ever since. Amazing piece of head protection for the value. Fortunately haven't had a chance to test it in a crash, but I'm sure it'll do its job wonderfully.
Super comfortable helmet - chin bar is easy to remove and replace. Fab buy and great service - cheers guys
Amazing looking helmet due to vivid color scheme, great fit and lightweight too
Outstanding piece of kit. 100% happy. The fit is amazing and feels super secure. Very happy with this purchase. Great value for the money.
Great buy! It fits perfectly and is very comfortable. Unbeatable quality and price
Excellent helmet, felt very safe during first outing. Sizing as perfect, nice snug but comfortable fit. Slightly tricky to re-engage the chin bar whilst wearing but I`m sure I`ll get the hang off it. Looks great, Build quality feels top notch, pleased!
Beautiful helmet. The lime mat color is really unique. Easy size adjustment but need a little bit of practice to open it.
Great buy! Full face helmet with the option to easily remove chin bar. Comes with 2 visors, 1 has go pro mount already fitted. Also has adjustments at the back to get the perfect fit, not too heavy either. Great buy at a great price.
