Product Details

Giro Montaro MIPS Helmet

With features such as the coolest RocLoc fit system to date; a clip-in GoPro camera mount and MIPS impact protection, the Giro Montaro MIPS makes a strong case for being the most advanced trail lid to date.

  • Full Wrap-In Mould - the polycarbonate shell, which is moulded to the EPS shell, extends all the way to the bottom of the helmet and wraps round the base to create a more robust lid that is more resistant to dings.
  • Roll Cage - the EPS (expanded polystyrene) liner is structurally reinforced with a nylon skeleton, which helps the lid remain intact under impact.
  • The Roll Cage provides an extra measure of strength and integrity that you'll never notice…unless you need it.
  • Giro's most advanced fit-belt system, RocLoc Air is a patented design that suspends the helmet just slightly off the top of the skull.
  • RocLoc Air accelerates the airflow over the head and out the back to help prevent overheating.
  • Like Giro's proven Roc Loc 5 fit belt, RocLoc Air makes it easy to single-handedly custom tune fit, tension and fore-aft helmet tilt.
  • Giro's new Hydrophilic Pads can absorb up to 10 times their own weight in water, helping you manage sweat while riding.
  • The pad retains moisture to prevent sweat from dripping into your eyes, and then dries quickly.
  • The Hydrophilic Pad's anti-microbial, X-Static lining helps to reduce odour, keeping your helmet fresh.
  • Strap grippers on the back of the helmet allow full goggle integration.
  • The POV (Point of View) vented visor can be angled up or down 15 degrees to make it easy to achieve an optimal level of shielding without compromising your view ahead.
  • Once adjusted, the POV visor stays in place.
  • The Montaro comes supplied with a clip-in mount for GoPro and similar action cameras.
  • This mount clips into a reinforced vent at the top of the lid, making it much neater and less fiddly to fit than a strap-on camera mount.
  • Available in three sizes so you're more likely to achieve a perfect fit than you might with a one-size-fits-all lid: S (51-55cm), M (55-59), L (59-63).
  • 364g - based on weighing a medium Giro Montaro MIPS Helmet (with camera-mount attached) at Bike Co-op HQ in January 2016.

Last but possibly most important, like a growing number of better quality helmets, the Giro Montaro features the MIPS Multi-Directional Impact Protection System.

To find out more about MIPS, check the video.

  • MIPS means Multi-directional Impact Protection System.
  • MIPS was developed by a team of Swedish brain surgeons and neurologists who tasked themselves with creating a better bicycle helmet dedicated to reducing the rotational acceleration forces to the brain in the event of an angled impact.
  • In the capable hands of Giro, MIPS is a super-flexible low friction nylon head-hugging liner, designed to rotate inside the helmet in the event of an impact from any angle.
  • MIPS thus helps reduce the resulting rotational energy being transfered to the head - rotational energy that could otherwise cause serious injury to the brain should it violently impact the inside of the skull in the event of a crash.
  • MIPS therefore goes a long way to addressing the most frequent criticism of first generation helmets - that they are primarily designed to absorb the energy of a vertical head-on impact, and are less effective at saving you in the event of the type of angled impact, which is more likely to occur.
