Giro reimagines MIPS integration with Aether helmet

In a first for cycling, Giro has created a road helmet with a pivoting two-piece shell that acts as a MIPS component. The Giro Aether uses what the company calls MIPS Spherical, which it first used in a ski-race helmet. The design lets Giro offer the benefits of MIPS — reducing rotational strain on the brain — without some of the negatives sometimes associated with it, such as compromises in a helmet's fit or ventilation. University study tests MIPS, ranks 30 helmets for safety Best aero helmets MIPS Spherical and the Giro Aether MIPS Spherical was developed by Giro in partnership with MIPS. Like all MIPS designs, the concept is to allow the head to move slightly inside the helmet in the event of a crash to reduce rotational impact on the brain. But instead of a liner attached to the inside of a helmet shell, MIPS Spherical uses one ...
