The Giro Switchblade MIPS MTB Helmet features a removable chinbar for climbing and mellow trails, but when the going gets rough, it's fully ASTM downhill certified for maximum protection. A MIPS multi-directional impact protection system increases safety by reducing rotational energy in case of an impact, but comfort is aplenty with a downhill-oriented Roc Log® Air DH fit system, X-Static padding, and Wind Tunnel cheek-pad vents.

To use without the chinbar, it's as simple as pushing a couple buttons, rotating, and removing. What's left is a full-cut helmet that still offers increased coverage compared to traditional MTB helmets while remaining supremely comfortable for long rides.

Available in multiple colors.


Features:

  • CPSC, EN-1078, and ASTM downhill certified
  • Removable chinbar
  • Roc Loc® Air DH fit system with MIPS protection
  • Hydrophilic X-Static anti-microbial padding
  • 20 vents with internal channeling
  • P.O.V. Plus™ visor
  • Includes spare visor with camera mount

Sizing:

  • Small: 20" - 21.75"
  • Medium: 21.75"- 23.25"
  • Large: 23.25" - 24.75"

A slightly bad, really good helmet

The Switchblade is the Patton Tank of bike helmets, which, after a brain injury resulting from a crash last year while wearing a top-of-the-line road helmet, was just what I was looking for. The chin guard is easy to remove. The helmet can be properly snugged with the turn of a dial. The visor is fairly functional. Ventilation is adequate for cool weather. All those are good features. But the hemet is heavy, and hot. I doubt it is going to get worn much during our Missouri summers. That's bad. And the chin strap is a wonderment. Instead of a buckle it requires you to thread one end of the strap through two D-rings. Just about impossible with gloves, darn hard with bare fingers. And it is covered with a soft fleecy fabric that can't be removed for cleaning or because it's just too darn hot out. The chin strap is most definitely a bad thing--after a crash I can imagine having to cut it to get out of the helmet. All that said, I bought the helmet and I'm keeping it. The safety ratings are excellent and the helmet fits so well I don't notice the extra weight. I'd say, if you like things easy-peasy and are buckle-dependent then don't buy this helmet. But if you are a serious cyclist with a real concern for safety, then it might be good choice.
