Giro pioneered the aerodynamic helmet category with the original Advantage in 1985, and now they are redefining it with the Aerohead Ultimate MIPS—their fastest time trial helmet ever. They leveraged every resource available to create a helmet that tops the podium in speed, weight, style and comfort.
The shell is constructed with TeXtreme carbon fiber, an advanced material that is lighter and stronger than other carbon composites. The wrap-around eye shield offers an unblocked field of view with a huge aerodynamic benefit and the shield is made by ZEISS Optics for unrivaled clarity. A magnetic anchor attachment keeps the shield secure, yet easy to remove, and it can be stored in the “flipped up” position. Other stand-out features include a Roc Loc Air fit system and a hydrophilic, anti-microbial brow pad that can absorb up to ten times the amount of sweat as standard urethane padding. Additionally, this helmet is quipped with the MIPS system to redirect impact energy, providing more protection in certain impacts.
