Cooler, Lighter, Faster — Pick Three
The Giro Aries Spherical MIPS Road Helmet is the best-in-class high-end road helmet with a compact design that offers the pro tour riders every advantage they need to reach the top step of the podium.
Its smaller form and lighter weight deliver sensational comfort and cooling power. Spherical Technology™, the ball-and-socket design powered by Mips®, adds protection by redirecting energy away from the brain in certain impacts, and Progressive Layering with dual densities of Nanobead EPS foam adds more comprehensive energy management.
Twenty four Wind Tunnel vents are maximized by the AURA Reinforcement Arch, while plush IONIC+ anti-microbial padding and a network of intricately engineered deep internal channeling elevate comfort. From the proven reliability and adjustability of the Roc Loc® 5+ Air fit system, to full lower hardbody coverage to enhance durability, to the meticulous production quality, the Aries is the epitome of top-shelf performance, protection, and style.
Unrivaled Design & Functionality
Spherical Technology's Ball-and-Socket design, powered by Mips®, helps redirect impact forces away from the brain by allowing the outer liner to rotate around the inner liner during a crash. It also eliminates contact with hard plastic or slip-planes against the skin.
Helmets with Progressive Layering feature a dual-density liner designed to address high and low-speed impacts, for more comprehensive energy management.
Structural integrity is bolstered by the shatter-resistant and translucent AURA reinforcing arch that runs throughout the helmet.
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.
Combined with the massive vents, internal channeling forces air to flow over the scalp, providing remarkable cooling power.
The revolutionary Roc Loc® 5+ Air fit system adds a new dimension to helmet performance by enhancing cooling as well as fit, comfort, and stability. Using a patented design that suspends the helmet just slightly off the top of the skull, it allows cool airflow to pass directly over your head, further enhancing the performance of vents and internal channeling that exhaust heat out of the helmet.

Been ridding with the helmet for two months so far. Really light weight and feels very secure. Also very comfortable. The sunglasses garage alarm holds glasses very well but it is difficult to do one handed while riding.
I got this helmet because a I needed a new one and looking at the recent safety rating it ranked at the top. After a recent crash my helmet looked fine but then later I saw the foam was cracked inside!
The MIPS system conforms nicely to your head and it quite comfortable - more so than my old conventional Rudy. I still blunder around trying to get the buckle engaged but hopefully that will be sorted with practice. It doe looks quite bulbous on the head. For looks the Kask Aero would be my choice but "safety first"!
Yes, this isn't an inexpensive helmet and you can get some great helmets for around a hundred dollars but if you want one of the best this might be for you. As they say, don't skimp on contact points. Helmets, shorts, shoes, and gloves that aren't completely comfortable aren't worth it no matter the value. This helmet just fits me well. No hotspots and secures so well with the dial on the back that you feel like you don't even need to buckle the strap. What I also really like is the ball-and-socket MIPS system. It really is next-level as it works without having the plastic slides inside the helmet which makes other helmets feel hot and can feel weird with a shaved head. Despite the ball-and-socket design, this helmet has a very low overall profile. In other words... you don't look like a mushroom head. I also sweat a lot in the brow pad design is better than most at wicking the sweat to the sides.
The Giro Aries Spherical combines both a physical and mental edge to create a unique advantage among the best road bike helmets.
Itï¿½s a comfortable, well-ventilated, well-made helmet with conventional and innovative elements. Together they give me the sense that Iï¿½m riding a cooler, lighter and safer helmet, even if thereï¿½s little if any, meaningful performance difference between the Giro Aries and its top-of-the-line road bike helmet competitors.
While straightforward, the Giro Aries uses a full complement of proven adjustment mechanisms that fit my head shape easily and well and that I could envision would do likewise for those with a rounder or more oval head than mine.
There is about 40mm of width adjustment in its plastic, sturdy circumference strap at the back of your head. That allows me to better align the strapï¿½s shape to the contour of my own noggin even before I start to dial it in.
Many helmet brands have done away with this width adjustment. Instead, some use a thinner, more pliable circumference strap that easily adapts to your head shape (Trek). Others use a strap of similar material and strength as the one in the Giro Aries inside a shell that is more aligned with so-called ï¿½intermediate ovalï¿½ head shapes at the middle of the bell curve (Specialized) or favoring western (oval, intermediate-oval) or Asian (round) shaped heads.
Giro Aries Spherical
The Aries width and height adjustments and clearance between the front strap and shell combine for an optimum fit for your head and sunglasses and a comfortable sense that the shell is lighter than it actually is.
The Aries uses a small-diameter Giro branded dial to tighten or loosen the circumference strap. The dial, width adjustment, and a simple, sturdy, snap-in height adjustment with three options about 5mm apart are all cleanly integrated into the rear cradle.
I found the height adjustment key to bringing the front brow of the helmet up to allow for my largest sunglasses.
The Giro Aries Spherical straps also seem to draw on old-school design. They are anchored well inside the shell, come together under your ears with an up/down, forward/back clip, are made of a pliable material that lays comfortably against your face and neck that has a Goldilocks ï¿½just-rightï¿½ length and connects with a basic clip under your chin.
File this under ï¿½it just works.ï¿½ It actually works quite well.
A UNIQUE TYPE OF COMFORT
A 1-inch, 30-millimeter tall, quite conformable, and sweat-absorbing pad with open slots about halfway up sits against your forehead. Itï¿½s attached to the circumference strap, which itself sits about 3/8? or 5mm away from the shell.
With that pad design and the variou
I recently purchased the Giro Aries Spherical MIPS Road Helmet and I must say, I am thoroughly impressed with it. The adjustable Roc Loc 5 Air system provides a perfect fit that is comfortable and secure, without feeling too tight or uncomfortable. Additionally, the helmet's numerous vents and internal channels offer great ventilation, keeping my head cool and comfortable even during long rides in hot weather.
What really sold me on this helmet, though, is its top-rated safety features. As someone who values safety on the road, I was impressed with the Spherical technology and MIPS liner that provide extra protection against rotational forces, reducing the risk of head injury. This gives me peace of mind knowing that my head is well-protected while cycling.
While the Giro Aries Spherical MIPS Road Helmet is a bit pricier compared to other options on the market, I believe that the investment is well worth it for the level of comfort and safety it provides. Overall, I would highly recommend this helmet to anyone looking for a top-notch option that prioritizes both comfort and safety.
After my recent crash resulting in a TBI, I needed a new, safer helmet, This GIRO was one of the highest rated on the Virginia Tech helmet testing site.
It's always good to know your helmet provides best protection. In that context, it is fine, just a few nits. Bottom sides are lower than replaced earlier generation Giro helmet - sunglasses touch and rattle on some bumps. Helmet's integrated front sweat band stops airflow on forehead, and is noticeably hotter there.
Coming from an Aether, this is a bit "sleeker", doesn't appear as large. The look is similar, but better (if that makes sense), the comfort is great, breathable and great looking and of course safe. What more can you ask for in a lid? Highly recommended.
Super light though almost exactly the same as their other two Spherical's Kind of like riding with a black hole on your head absorbs all light and heat. You can pretend to be the Headless Bikeman
GIRO ARIES SPHERICAL MIPS ROAD HELMET is an excellent choice for riders of any level of skills. It is comfortable, excellent ventilation and the retention strap are very easy to adjust and manage. It is a top choice for any cycling style and particularly efficient when hot weather conditions. This is a highly recommended cycling tool.
