BUILT FOR THE DOWN

The Giro Switchblade MIPS Full Face MTB Helmet  is Giro's 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.

    Giro Switchblade Mips Full Face MTB Helmet Black ,  On

    This convertible full-face helmet is in a league of its own. Giros Switchblade breaks from the traditional take on convertible full-face / half-shell helmets. The unique moto-trials look is certain to garner glances from fellow riders, but it's the helmets safety ratings, useful features and ease of use that make this helmet a category leader. n spite of the mountain of tech packed into the Switchblade, Giro managed to keep it incredibly light. The in-mold construction helps keep the weight down to just 975g. This makes the Switchblade 205g lighter than the Cipher, Giro’s top-end full-face, which features a fiberglass shell. Even more impressive is the fact that it’s 75g lighter than the Bell Full 9, which uses a carbon fiber shell. With this weight saving, why would anyone purchase a traditional full-face? Well, price is certainly the most significant factor. It’s more expensive than the Cipher and riders who are looking for a dedicated full-face helmet would be buying tech they don’t need. Thanks to the Switchblade’s many vents, auditory feedback is the best of any full-face helmet I’ve worn. It’s also better than I expected when worn as a half shell. With the chin bar removed, the Switchblade is apt to garner some sideways glances from fellow riders. Giro calls the style “full cut.” I’ll stay out of the style fray and focus solely on function. The byproduct of this moto-trials look is that you have small chin guard that is very easy to secure to your pack when climbing and a helmet that passes downhill testing standards in both configurations. Giro might be a latecomer to the convertible-helmet market, but it's quite clear the company did its homework. Yes, the look is different. Is different good? That's up to you to decide. When it comes to safety, function and comfort, the Switchblade is the clear category leader.
