Description of Giro Aether MIPS Helmet 2020 - mateblack / electric purple

The Aether™ MIPS is the perfect example of Giro’s commitment to perpetually pushing for better. From the elegant silhouette of the Aether’s industrial design to how this helmet manages impact energy, it’s unlike any helmet ever created and a testament to Giro’s dedication to leading head protection. With the Aether, impact is everything.

  • Shatter-proof Roll Cage™ “Halo” Reinforcement
  • Featherweight Webbing with Slimline™ Buckle
  • Sunglass Docking Ports in Front Vents
  • Ponytail Compatible

Construction:
  • In-mold polycarbonate shell
  • Dual-density EPS Foam Liner

Fit System:
  • Roc Loc® Air

Ventilation:
  • 11 Vents with Wind Tunnel™ Internal Channeling


MIPS

The Multi-Directional Impact Protection System is a slip-plane system within the helmet designed to rotate inside the helmet with the intent to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head possibly reducing head injury from rotational impacts.

AURA REINFORCING ARCH

Structural integrity is bolstered by the shatter-resistant and translucent AURA reinforcing arch that runs throughout the helmet.

SIX-PIECE SHELL

The stunning silhouette is created by merging six individual pieces of polycarbonate around a series of massive vents.

PROGRESSIVE LAYERING

The Aether utilizes multi-density EPS foam to save weight and manage a wide range of impact energies.

DEEP INTERNAL CHANNELING

Combined with the massive vents, internal channeling forces air to flow over the scalp, providing remarkable cooling power.

EYEWEAR DOCKING PORTS

Integrated eyewear docking ports with rubber grippers help to secure sunglasses.

ROC LOC® 5-PLUS

In addition to retention adjustment on the ergonomic and compact dial, riders can adjust vertical positioning and tune the contact points asymmetrically.

3D LOGO

Giro laser-cuts the polycarbonate shell, then press this single-piece logo into place from behind before permanently affixing the logo through the in-mold process.

NANOBEAD EPS FOAM

To achieve a sleek and slim silhouette without compromising protection standards, the Aether utilizes a micro-bead expanded polystyrene.

IMPACT IS EVERYTHING

The Aether™ MIPS combines airy, open design with a revolution in rotational energy management to advance head protection for cyclists. Inside the Aether, a dual-density EPS foam liner helps to manage a wide range of impact energies, while also boasting deep internal channeling to provide cooling airflow. Our proprietary MIPS Spherical technology is embedded between the layers of EPS foam – instead of against the rider’s head – giving riders the benefits of MIPS without any obstruction to comfort or cooling power. Outside, a sleek 6-piece shell forms a stunning silhouette around the massive vents, which get added structural reinforcement via a shatter-proof “halo” that runs throughout the helmet. The final touch is our Roc Loc® Air fit system, featuring three diminsional fit tuning, that allows easy adjustment in seconds for the ultimate in comfort.



Helmets with MIPS technology help to reduce energy transmitted to the brain from linear impacts and angled impacts. The Aether, with MIPS Spherical, can provide an additional measure of protection.

MIPS Spherical was designed with the goal of reducing energy during an impact. Giro worked hand-in-hand with the neuroscientists and researchers behind MIPS, the Multi-Directional Impact Protection System. After five years of testing by Giro (and more than two decades of research and development behind MIPS’ patents) Giro believes that MIPS is the leading technology designed to reduce rotational energy from angled impacts.

Many other helmets available on the market incorporate MIPS by adding a plastic slip-plane inside the helmet. With MIPS Spherical, however, two layers of EPS foam become the essential components of the slip-plane system. This may provide more protection without any obstruction to comfort or ventilation. This elegant design allows the Aether’s exterior liner/helmet shell to rotate independently around your head during an angled impact and may result in a reduction of rotational forces.

Hervorragend
Super Helm, passt gut auf meinen Kopf, mit gewogenen 271 Gramm in Größe M noch sehr leicht.
Negativ war, dass bei so einem Topprodukt keine zusätzlichen Pads dabei sind und auch kein Beutel zur Aufbewahrung.
Fazit: Bedingte Kaufempfehlung; unbedingt vor Kauf anprobieren
Helm unmittelbar vor dem Urlaub online bei Bike24 gekauft, um auf neuesten Sicherheitsstandard (MIPS) aufzurüsten
Positiv:
- Vordere/seitliche Helmpartie ragt deutlich über Kopfmass hinaus, sodass im Falle eines Aufpralls definitiv der Helm als erstes Kontakt aufnimmt
- Sehr gute Belüftung
- Leicht
- Schickes Design
Negativ:
- Hinten deutlich zu kurz geschnitten, (da war wohl Design wichtiger als Schutzfunktion); ist vermutlich bekannt, da keine der bei Bike24 gezeigten Bilder Seitenprofil mit Kopf zeigen bzw. bei den Giro Videos extrem kurz eingeblendet
- Kunststoffhalterung hinten spitz, sticht nach einiger Zeit in den Nacken; Pads dünn
- zu teuer für besagte Negativpunkte

Bike24: Manchmal erfüllt ein Produkt einfach nicht unsere Erwartungen. Schön ist das selten, dafür so gut wie immer lösbar. Nimm bitte Kontakt mit unserem Kundeservice auf und wir besprechen gemeinsam anhand Deiner Anforderungen und Wünsche die beste Lösung.

Dieser Helm hat mir bei einem schweren Sturz im Rennen den Kopf gerettet!
Der Sitz auf dem Kopf ist top.
Excellent
Super!
