Giro pioneered the aerodynamic helmet category with the original Advantage in 1985, and now we are redefining it with two new models – Aerohead™ Ultimate MIPS and Aerohead MIPS – our fastest time trial helmets ever.

AEROHEAD ULTIMATE MIPS

Aerohead Ultimate MIPS - Record Setting Speed

A bold, unconventional profile coupled with a TeXtreme™ carbon fiber shell provides minimal frontal area, resulting in the fastest aerodynamic profile in Giro’s storied history. The wrap-around eye shield offers a wide field of view with a huge aerodynamic benefit and the shield is made by ZEISS® Optics for outstanding clarity. A magnetic anchor attachment keeps the shield secure, yet easy to remove, and it can be stored in the “flipped up” position.

Features

  • TeXtreme carbon fiber shell – a stronger, stiffer material provides a slimmer shape with less frontal area
  • ZEISS® Optics wrap-around eye shield, with magnetic attachments
  • Roc Loc® Air fit system, internal channeling
  • Hydrophilic, anti-microbial brow pad
  • MIPS – Multi-Directional Impact Protection System
  • Weight: 450 grams

AEROHEAD MIPS

Aerohead MIPS - Beat the clock & Stay cool

Large vents and internal channeling boost ventilation, keeping triathletes and time trialists cool when the competition is hot. By using a polycarbonate shell, Wind Tunnel™ ventilation and internal channeling, this helmet is proven to boost cooling power by nearly 10-percent over Aerohead Ultimate MIPS while remaining aerodynamic. Additionally, the wrap-around eye shield offers an impressive field of view with the convenience of magnetic attachments to allow easy storage of the lens in the “flipped up” position – perfect for fast swim-to-bike transitions.

Features

  • Polycarbonate shell
  • Four vents and internal channeling
  • ZEISS® Optics wrap-around eye shield, with magnetic attachments
  • Roc Loc® Air fit system
  • Hydrophilic, anti-microbial brow pad
  • MIPS – Multi-Directional Impact Protection System
  • Weight: 450 grams

Crunching the data

*Data collected from The University of Washington's Aeronautical Laboratory (UWAL) Wind Tunnel. Giro's data represents two head angles (30o & 60o) and five yaw angles (0o, 5o, 10o, 15o, 20o). The Wind Average Drag (WAD) calculation uses the Yaw data to calculate one weighted average drag number. Giro then uses the two head angles to calculate a weighted average of a cyclist riding 80% in head up (30o position) and 20% in head down (60o) postion. Time difference can then be calculated for various distances and power outputs.

**Track data collected at the ADT Home Depot Velodrome using ERO's equipment and data acquisition system. Data represents averages of two riders (Giro Sponsored Pro Tour rider and a non Giro Sponsored Pro/Elite Triathlete)

***Data taken with Giro's Therminator heated head form. Data collected after 30 minutes operating in our wind tunnel at 22mph with 69oF ambient air.
