Giro Synthe MIPS Road Cycling Helmet
The most extensive wind tunnel testing and a team comprised of some of the best engineers in road cycling are what brought the Synthe, one of the most outstanding helmets in the market today. There's a reason it's become the most popular helmet in bike racing. The Synthe offers some of the best aerodynamics of any road bike helmet after a substantial amount of tests through the wind tunnel. Everything from the air vents to even the chin strap have been meticulously designed to meet these demands.
The biggest drawback from most aero road helmets is the lack of ventilation and Giro faced this problem head on when designing the Synthe. One of the more phenomenal features is the implementation of Aero Mesh Panels, something typically found in bike apparel. These panels allow air to flow over the top of your head while bridging the gap between aerodynamics and proper ventilation through their rounded design. The Roc Loc Air fit adjustment system not only allows you to adjust the vertical position and tension of your fit, it doubles as a ventilation system. By suspending the shell above the Roc Loc frame, air moves quickly and efficiently between your head and the helmet offering copious amounts of cooling air while staying true to it's aerodynamics.
This model is equipped with MIPS, an added feature that has raised the bar in terms of safety advancements. The multi-directional impact system is designed as a small liner on the inside of the helmet. This allows your head to move in relation to the helmet shell in the event of a crash, further protecting your brain from what are called oblique impacts and rotational forces.
At a claimed weight of 270 grams for a size medium and the sleak, low-profile aero design, the Giro Synthe is an obvious choice for any serious rider looking to take their times to the next level.
