Giro Range MIPS helmet ups the safety tech game

Giro set the pace with its In Form Fit System years ago, allowing the adjustment of helmet fits with the turn of a dial. And this year in August, the helmet company upped the game with the launch of its Conform Fit Technology.

"The two piece shell forms to the riders' head, providing up to six centimeters of adjustment for a truly custom fit and the lowest profile that we've ever created," said Giro senior director of R&D Rob Wesson in a statement.

What that means for riders? Even those with the smallest heads get the tightest custom fit.

That paired with Giro’s Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) makes the women’s Range MIPS helmet a great safety accessory.

Like other MIPS-equipped helmets, the Range features an interior foam liner attached via an elastic system to the outer shell, that upon impact rotates around to reduce rotational forces.

All these safety functionalities are also paired with a number of different colorways, a Fidlock magnetic buckle, GoPro compatible camera mount that snaps into the front vent, antimicrobial liner and adjustable vents.
