Giro Agilis MIPS
Giro's Agilis bike helmet offers assured style and performance for all roads, with a sleek silhouette, airy design, and MIPS technology.
The Agilis MIPS is the right choice for riders looking for a helmet that combines deeper coverage and a host of performance features optimized for road and multi-surface riding.
The fit is comfortable and secure thanks to Giro's adjustable Roc Loc 5.5 MIPS system that combines fit and positioning adjustments while integrating with MIPS technology for an added measure of protection in the event of an angled impact. The outer Hardbody shell extends to the inside of the helmet and is molded from a tough polycarbonate that's fused permanently to the EPS foam liner using an In-Mold process to enhance durability and ventilation while shedding excess bulk.
For a pro-quality pedigree without the pro-quality price, choose the Giro Agilis MIPS road bike helmet.

I needed a quick replacement a few years ago and Agilis was on sale. I was pleasantly surprised by the fit and weight and bough another the following year. This was my fourth Agilis and I am just as happy as with the first. Its an incredible value, good on weight and ventilation and Giro quality is (in my opinion) excellent!
I needed an extra helmet in "white" and the Giro Agilis has proven to be exactly as comfortable and well-fitting as my other top-of-the-line Giro helmet. I can't recommend this helmet enough if this is the price point you are looking at. You could probably do a blind test, and I wouldn't be able to tell which helmet I was wearing.
Wanting to upgrade to a MIPS helmet. I was immediately drawn to the styling of the Giro Agilis Matt Portaro Grey/White/Red model. For me, the shape of the helmet and the subtle graphics break up the embarrassing "bulb-head Dork" look of most ventilated helmets.
The more I use it, the more I love it. The thin foam cushions and the ratchet adjusting dial make it very comfortable. For sizing, I found that their instructions (based on head circumference) worked for my tall skinny head. One word of caution about chin strap length: I'm perfect, but I had to adjust the strap out to its very end limit. Some other "tall heads" might find that the strap is not long enough for them.
I am an ex-roadie, but now I'm primarily a commuter (pre-Covid) and sometimes roadie. This is by far the best fitting, most comfortable helmet I've owned or tried on. I have not had a chance to wear it in hot weather, so I can't speak to the airflow, but it looks like it would be good.
It's going to be on the heavy side if you're counting grams, but I've worn it on fairly long rides (2+ hours) and forgot it was there.
This is my first MIPS helmet. Thankfully, I have not tested it's crash worthiness.
The only reason I didn't give it an Overall rating of 5 is principle - I don't think I've ever rated any product a perfect 5. However, in terms of Value, a definite 5.
I wear a size 7 1/2 hat, purchased a Large and it fits nicely. Previous Large Giros I've purchase have been snug, so I was quite pleased with the fit. Bought the helmet as it was good value on BikeTiresDirect's "Daily Special." One slight objection is the chin clasp which while it holds firm, is a devil to unclasp; seems to be of a lower quality than clasp my older Giro helmet.
Overall, pleased with fit, color (matted white), lightness and the MIPS safety feature this model offers.
Giro has many styles of one size fits all helmets. This one is size specific and fits very comfortably. It has great webbing around the top and snugs for a comfortable fit. The back comes down to the base of the skull and around the ears. MIPS is always a benefit. There is plenty of ventilation and is an overall great helmet.
Comfortable fit. It sits a little lower on the forehead than my Rudy Project helmet, but tightens up snugly so doesn't bang against sunglasses. Great price for MIPs technology. This model has several color choices to match your kit. Wish it had a bug shield, but otherwise I'm very happy with it.
The real proof of a helmet comes in its ability to protect in a crash, and (thankfully) I haven't had to test the Giro in this regard. I like the high visibility of the yellow-green color. The internal suspension makes the helmet very comfortable, and easy to adjust for those days when you need to wear a hat.
The sizing is perfect for as a narrower fit seems to work well for me. I bought the Neon color and boy is it nice and bright, exactly what I was looking for. It has the roller adjustment in the back and that provides plenty of adjustment.
I have worn Bell Z20 helmets for a few years and find this one to be both comfortable and lightweight, AND it has MIPS - all at a bargain price. Not missing my Bell a bit. It looks good too!
Fits me very well and is actually comfortable. It feels like it's part of me rather than some alien thing sitting on my head. Chucked my older generation helmet in the recycle bin, Agilis was a huge improvement. Purchased a size Med. and fit my hat size 7 3/8 or 59mm head with a little room for proper adjustment and still room for a thin skull cap when it's cool.
I'll start with the only disappointment - the chin clasp. Smaller, narrower, than previous clasps on Giro helmets I've owned. With gloves difficult to unclasp The positives: The "large size" fits my 7 5/8 head, with cycling cap, quite comfortably; good value ($$) for a MIPS helmet; plenty of ventilation; the matte white color looks good and ample locations to attach a helmet light. I'm quite pleased with helmet. I recommend.
This helmet fits good and, almost as important, looks good. Has been cool on hot days. Have no knowledge of crash protection--and hope to keep it that way--but it fits very snug without being smothering.
I'm pleased with this product.
Went looking for a helmet as a friend of mine suggested I get a MIPS helmet and boy are those things pricey! after hunting around and checking for the color I wanted I got the Giro Agilis. It's lighter than the non MIPS helmet I rep[laced plus looks real cool matching my bike. fits great and very comfertable
My head size was just below the jump from medium to large. I ordered a medium as indicated, and it was true to size, i.e. I was able to wear a medium - the fit is just shy of snug but not tight.
Some sites also say that MIPS makes a helmet less cool, but after 40 years of riding in Florida heat in many different helmets, I can't detect a reduction in cooling.
I still have no idea whether the MIPS feature will help in an accident unlessuntil I have one.
This Giro helmet is lightweight, streamlined, and comfortable to wear. It fits comfortably with an adjustable dial in the back of the helmet. The flat black color hides scratches and at the same time, is attractive. I would recommend this helmet to any bike rider who enjoy comfort and protection.
