The SOURCE MIPS by GIRO combines advanced performance with very high protection in a robust design that is ready for the trail. The helmet shell is pulled far down at the back – the deeper cover offers you additional protection. 17 vents provide optimal cooling, while the ROC LOC 5 fitting system with integrated MIPS technology offers safety and comfort. The screw-on visor adds extra style; the full hard body finish on the underside increases resistance and durability. The SOURCE MIPS is without a doubt a cool helmet for rough, rugged trails, but it feels just as comfortable on wide double tracks.

The inner shell is fused with the outer shell under high pressure and strong heat for a lasting connection. This makes the helmet very robust and lightweight.
ROC LOC SYSTEM:
The adjustment system in a mini housing allows for easy adjustments with just two fingers. You can adjust it in height and width for a perfect fit.
A sophisticated ventilation system consisting of internal channels and active vents allows cool, fresh air to circulate around the head while also allowing heat to escape. For great ventilation on exhausting rides.
WHAT IS MIPS?
MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is a slip-plane system within the helmet. It is designed to rotate inside the helmet and thus slow down or reduce the impact energy acting on the brain, which helps reduce head injuries caused by rotational impacts.
WHY IS MIPS IMPORTANT?
When a head rotates quickly and comes to a sudden stop, the rotational acceleration may cause the brain tissue to experience high levels of strain. This stretching of the tissue caused by these motions may result in various types of brain injury. MIPS is designed with the intent to address rotational acceleration from impact.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
MIPS uses a slip-plane system that moves inside the helmet, mimicking the brain’s own protection system. This layer is designed to rotate inside the helmet with the intent to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head. Science tells us that if we can reduce the strains associated with rotational acceleration, we might reduce the risk and severity of brain injury.
This material wicks moisture away especially fast when sweating. In this way, it offers very good breathability and always ensures a dry and comfortable feeling.
