Giro created the Compound™ MIPS® for riders in search of the renowned Giro fit and in need of an extra-large size. Inspired by the confident mountain style and breezy ventilation of the Fixture™ helmet, the Compound is built around many of the best features, like In-Mold construction coupled with the ease and comfort of the acclaimed Roc Loc® Sport fit system. A seamlessly integrated Multi-Directional Impact Protection System, which can redirect energy and provide more protection in certain impacts, ensures that you have the latest in head protection technology.
The MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is a slip-plane system within the helmet designed to rotate inside the helmet with the intent to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head possibly reducing head injury from rotational impacts.
The Roc Loc® Sport fit system offers easy one-handed operation with a 7 cm adjustment range. With comfort similar Roc Loc® 5 and ponytail compatibility, the Roc Loc® Sport fit system brings premium function to sport level helmets.
The In-mold construction fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet's impact-absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows for better ventilation systems, making in-mold helmets lighter and cooler than traditional helmets.
The Universal Fit™ helmets are sculpted to look good and fit great for almost anyone on the first try. By developing proprietary shell sizes based on specific customer groups, and combining them with an easily-adjustable fit system, it’s easy for you get the right fit, straight out of the box, without the hassle or expense of trying multiple sizes.
