Giro Cartelle MIPS HelmetGiro’s Cartelle™ MIPS provides the essential trail performance and protection you require from an affordable helmet that doesn’t skimp on style. The design is inspired by their premium Montara™ MIPS helmet and offers many of Giro’s key features.Its compact shape provides deep, secure coverage and the Roc Loc® 5 fit system allows you to easily dial-in both fit tension and adjust vertical position with a single hand.The Cartelle MIPS is designed for goggle compatibility and the P.O.V. Plus™ visor allows you to lift the visor and place your goggles on the front of the helmet.The extra plush Coolmax padding has great wicking properties and provides all-day comfort on the trail. The helmet was designed with MIPS, which redirects impact energy to provide more protection in certain crashes.Features:Construction: In-mould polycarbonate shell with EPS linerWomen’s Series™Deep coverage P.O.V. Plus visorExtra plush Coolmax paddingFit System: Roc Loc® 5Ventilation: 14 Wind Tunnel™ vents with internal channellingMIPS® equippedTechnologies:Women’s Series™: The Women’s Series™ is a diverse collection of helmet styles, fits and prices tailored to the demands of female riders. While the level of detail and range of colours is unique within the Women’s Series helmets, they do not feature a unique “women’s fit”. That’s because there is no anatomic difference between women and men’s heads except for the average skull diameter measurement. And since Giro helmet sizes cover 98% of the human population, they believe the Women’s Series offers more options to women than any other brand.In-Mould Construction: This fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet’s impact-absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows for better ventilation systems, making in-mould helmets lighter and cooler than traditional helmets.Roc Loc® Air Fit System: This revolutionary fit system adds a new dimension to helmet performance by enhancing cooling, as well as fit comfort and stability. Using a patented design that suspends the helmet just slightly off the top of the skull, Roc Loc® Air allows cool airflow to pass directly over your head, further enhancing the performance of vents and internal channelling that exhaust heat out of the helmet. Fit and feel adjustments mimic the Roc Loc® 5, allowing you to easily custom tune fit tension and fore-aft tilt of the helmet in seconds using a single hand.MIPS®: All Giro helmets are designed to reduce as much energy as possible while meeting and exceeding stringent safety standards. The goal of Giro’s MIPS-equipped helmets is to reduce rotational forces. What is MIPS?MIPS is a Brain Protection SystemRotational motion can cause brain injuriesThe low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impactMIPS adds protection P.O.V. Plus: Giro’s P.O.V. Plus visor features an adjustment mechanism that lets you move the visor up and down in indexed steps. These steps include three riding positions plus a high position for goggle storage above your brow. The design allows you to easily adjust your visor with one hand while riding.Buy Giro Protection from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
