Giro Women’s Ember Helmet (MIPS)The Giro Women’s Ember Helmet (MIPS) takes its design inspiration from the top-end Synthe helmet but comes in at a more affordable price point. And you still get the cutting edge head protection of MIPS and a host of features to make your ride more comfortable. When you’re getting out on your bike, be it a brisk training ride, the thrill of mixing it up while racing or to simply enjoy the scenery, the Women’s Ember Helmet (MIPS) ensures a safer ride. The safety comes via the combination of the Giro engineered In-Mould construction, offering excellent impact-absorption, and the brain-protecting MIPS system. We hope you never have to test the effectiveness, but you can be confident the Ember has been developed and tested to deliver outstanding protection while also minimising weight, maintaining excellent ventilation and maximising all-ride comfort. What is MIPS?Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is a proven system that reduces the rotational forces on the brain when you’re involved in a crash. The forces are absorbed and redirected to prevent them from being transmitted to the brain. 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 impactIn-Mould ConstructionIn-mould construction fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet’s impact-absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows Giro to sculpt better ventilation systems, so In-mould helmets can be lighter and cooler than traditional helmets.Thermoformed SL Roll Cage™ reinforcementThe Thermoformed SL Roll Cage™ reinforcement is a breakthrough in helmet architecture and allows greater ventilation without compromising the integrity of the helmet. More ventilation. Awesome protection. Roc Loc® 5 Fit SystemFor easy adjustment, you’ll enjoy the benefits of the Roc Loc® 5 Fit System.
