Giro Launches the Aether MIPS

If there is one piece of technology that can save your life, it’s a helmet. But that doesn’t mean you should have to sacrifice fit, functionality, and yeah, fashion in the process. Giro’s new Aether MIPS looks to solve all three. Check out more at Giro and tech specs below.

The Aether™ MIPS® combines a revolution in rotational energy management with an airy, open design to advance head protection for cyclists. Inside the Aether™, a two-part dual-density Nanobead™ EPS foam liner helps to manage a wide range of impact energies, by rotating independently of a rider’s head and the helmet outer shell. This proprietary MIPS® Spherical technology removes any obstruction to comfort, while also boasting deep internal channeling to provide cooling airflow. Outside, a sleek 6-piece shell forms a stunning silhouette around the massive vents, which get added structural reinforcement via a shatter-proof AURA reinforcement. The final touch is a new Roc Loc® 5+ Air fit system, featuring 3-way fit tuning, that allows independent and easy adjustment in seconds for the ultimate in comfort.
