Giro Switchblade MIPS Helmet

It’s important to have the right protection while out on the trail, but it can be frustrating to feel over-prepared on a ride. Sure, you have a wild downhill section at one point, but what about the miles of climbing or the days you’re just going to cruise through the woods? Do you really need a full faced helmet all the time? The Giro Switchblade is the helmet to fix that problem.

It was nearly 20 years ago when Giro first came out with their Switchblade Helmet. They shook up the helmet market a good deal with the revolutionary idea of being able to take the chin-bar off when you felt like it. Now the brand has found a way to further improve on that initial design. Not only is this now certified to CPSC standards both with and without the chin-bar, but it features a MIPS system that better protects from impacts, and a Roc Lock system for keeping the helmet snug. To top it all off, the visor also comes with an integrated camera mount. Prices start at $250. [Purchase]
