Giro Syntax MIPS® Helmet

The Syntax MIPS® Helmet combines a touch of European flair with slightly deeper coverage and high-performance features—all contained within a very slim design. The outer shell is molded from a tough polycarbonate that's fused permanently to the EPS foam liner using an In-Mold Hardbody™ construction process to enhance durability and ventilation without excess bulk.

Features:

  • Comfortable and secure fit, thanks to the highly-adjustable Roc Loc® 5 Air MIPS® system
  • Customizable feel for great stability and long-range comfort
  • Wind Tunnel Ventilation with internal channeling to thrust cool air over and around the rider's head while forcing heat and stale air out
  • Integrated MIPS® (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) which can provide an added measure of protection from rotational forces in the event of an angled impact

A nice helmet for anyone wanting trusty MIPS protection at a very economical price point - a no-brainer!

I have been using the Giro Syntax MIPS helmet for road riding for almost a month now and my impressions are positive. This is my first helmet from the Giro brand and I'd thought I would see what all the hype was about. Many of my riding buddies use Giro helmets (especially the higher end models) and even my dad has this helmet. The large size seems to fit perfectly to my big melon right out of the box and with no adjustments to the straps. The dial at the back of the helmet is easy to adjust on the fly and I can usually get the right fit in about 16-20 clicks. Since I have a full head of hair and usually wear a cycling cap or headband, the airflow seems on par with my previous Bell Stratus and LG Quartz helmets, though, I personally don't think the helmet lacks any airflow - your experience may vary. I got the red and black color to compliment that of my bike and shoes. It looks much better in person but the picture online is pretty close. One thing I find lacking due to the vent placement is a place to securely put sunglasses when not wearing. Despite that small detail, the helmet is comfortable enough to wear all day even with sunglasses on and AfterShokz headphones. It's really light and sometimes I don't even notice I have it on. The deeper coverage of the helmet allows it to sit more forward on my head, and riders I know wished their Specialized and Bell helmets had this same feature. The helmet seems pretty durable over the long-term and I trust that it will keep me from getting seriously injured in the event of another crash. 2020 has not been too kind as I have already had three this year.

Overall, I would buy this helmet again and would recommend it to anyone. What you get when compared to other helmets is simply a no-brainer at this price point. I did quite a bit of research and definitely read my share of reviews before buying. For the sake of your noggin and making informed decisions, I recommend you do the same.

MIPS. Affordable. Light. Cool. Trusted.

I've worn Giro Helmets since the 80's. Thankfully my accidents never included a head impact. We'll leave it to others to comment on head protection. But Giro has done a good job on the other important features over the years. Things like airflow, weight, visibility, MIPS technology, adjustability, and strap comfort. So I remain loyal. My one alert to everyone is verify size. I'm a larger guy (200lbs) with a regular size head (59cm) that is on the cusp between medium and large. It took a try on to verify the right size was (surprisingly) medium.

I forget it�s even on my head helmet.

Super comfortable helmet as I�m on my 4th one. It�s a great fit without looking bulky as some helmets do. It�s easy to twist the back to tighten it even going down the road. It�s got the Euro flair that I really like and I�ve received many compliments! I ride every day of the week. I highly recommend the Giro Syntex helmet.

Good helmet, very cheap insurance

I've been an endurance road rider since the 70s starting before helmets were used by anyone. I've used many iterations of helmets over the years and have been using Giro helmets for a long time. In the last few years manufacturers have recommended replacing your helmet after 3 to 5 years as the crush material deteriorates. I took that advice and purchased a Syntax MIPS in January on a good sale at BTD. The fit was great and it seemed a little more compact than past helmets.

This month I was clipped by a truck and went down. Relatively minor accident but still ended up with broken ribs, road rash, bruises and my first ride in an ambulance. While I don't recall hitting my head, the EMT said that I'd need a new helmet. No head trauma detected in the ER other than some marks that matched the MIPS structure on one side of my head. Inspecting the helmet later I noticed scrapes on the outside and cracks in the material inside. The helmet did exactly what it was designed to do!

I put about 3000 miles on this helmet and the only downside was that it did seemed hotter than past helmets as the weather warmed up. BTD had another sale going on so I replaced the Syntax with a Synthe hoping for a little more cooling. Giro's crash replacement policy is a 30% off voucher good on their site. BTD's sale was 30% off so I chose BTD.

Great helmet

Im a big fan of the styling of Giros helmets, and this mode in particular fits well, is lightweight, and looks good. My only issue is that I always seem to break the flimsy plastic parts of the Roc Loc system within a couple months.

Good helmet, ventialtion a bit lacking

I'm a road rider, and needed to replace my aging Giro. Not wanting to spend a fortune, I picked this one. As expected, the fit was perfect, as I know from experience that Giro helmets fit me extremely well. My head measures right in the middle of M range, and I can pretty much wear the thing straight out of the box.

My only quibble was that after a couple of rides I felt the ventilation was really lacking. If you're riding for a few hours in hot weather, you really don't want your head to roast any more than necessary, and mine was.

I ended up giving the helmet to my son, to his delight, and ordering the Aether, on sale. It also fit perfectly, AND had good ventilation.

If you're just tooling around, the Syntax is a great helmet. But if you're out for a ride of a few hours, you might want to look at something with better vents.

Picture not representative

The inner frame of the white helmet is bright white, so you see bright white stripes on your head through the holes. Obviously not the most important feature, but it looks truly bizarre against any hair that isn't white.

Unbeatable MIPS protection at the price!

Lightweight, good airflow, and a low profile. Pretty much a triple threat. MIPS protection which should be mandatory at this point. If you haven't looked into MIPS, I'll sum it all up for you do yourself a favor and throw out your old helmet and buy one with MIPS. One of the best helmets on the market, especially for the price.

Good fit with important safety features.

I've worn several Giro helmets over the years, and found them easy to adjust and comfortable to wear. Safety is a concern, and the MIPS feature is an important addition for me. Fortunately, I haven't had to test whether the helmet will protect me from serious head injuries, but the reputation of Giro for a quality product does make me comfortable trusting that the helmet will protect me.

Great Helmet

Bought this helmet to replace my Specialized helmet that was nine years old. My concerns were that it would be comfortable, well ventilated for summer months, and had the new MIPS technology. It met all those needs and find it to be a great replacement helmet at a good price.

It is rated well as a safe helmet as tested by Virginia Tech for a bike helmets.

Heavier than I'm used to but a good helmet nonetheless.

This helmet is heavier than my previous hemet which was a Scott Wit-R. However I soon got used to it. It was important to me to get a helmet with the MIPS system in it. So at this price I think it's the best bet.

Excellent Helmet

Not a budget helmet, not an expensive helmet, but a great helmet! This thing has really good ventilation and is super light. I had a hard time finding a good helmet for my noggin due to a large ridge on the back of my skull. Most helmets weren't able to go down far enough below the ridge, but THIS helmet fit so well. Would recommend.
