Product Spotlight: Giro Switchblade MIPS Full Face Helmet

Versatility is key. When it comes to your mountain bike and BMX gear, added versatility is always a plus.

Giro Switchblade Full Face Helmet for Mountain Bike and BMX

The Giro Switchblade, a full face helmet for mountain biking and BMX, has one unique feature that isn't shared with many helmets on the market.

A removable chin bar that takes the helmet from full-face to a traditional bike helmet almost instantly. It is a truly great innovation that gives riders added versatility. Simply push the buttons on the bottom of the chin bar, rotate up and pull it off. It is that simple to remove and snap back into place. 

The Giro Switchblade feature heavy, not only does it come with the removable chin bar, but it also offers MIPS technology. MIPS, a form of slip plane technology, has two inner liners in the helmet that allow for a slight rotation of the rider's skull on impact, thus mitigating the rotational forces that often cause dangerous lasting brain traumas, such as concussions. 

 

Additional Features of the Giro Switchblade Include:

  • P.O.V. Plus visor
  • Spare visor with camera mount Hydrophilic
  • Hydrophilic X -Static anti-microbial padding
  • Certified to CPSC, EN-1078 and ASTM-1952-DH with & without chinbar
  • In-mold construction
  • Roc Loc Air DH fit system
  • 20 vents with internal channeling, Wind Tunnel cheek pad ventilation

The Switchblade has a ton of ventilation and a fit system to offer the most comfortable and adjustable fit possible. An added camera mount visor is included, so you can film while you ride. Most importantly, even without the chin bar, the Switchblade is ASTM-1952 certified for downhill. 

With its extremely versatile yet feature-rich offering, it is no surprise the Giro Switchblade is a staff pick. It truly is a "cut" above the rest!
