The Giro Emerge MIPS snowboard/ski helmet takes another step forward in protection and style. This helmet is packed with the most sophisticated tech providing the same protection used by top World Cup alpine skiers. With a low profile freestyle design, combined with the new MIPS Spherical tech makes it the go to helmet for Giro's world class riding team.
This helmet features MIPS Spherical tech, a refined evolution of the original Multi Directional Impact Protection System, MIPS for short. This sophisticated design uses two layers of EPP foam fitted together like a ball and a socket. The two layers move independently to redirect energy from impacts, reducing friction that was found in the original MIPS. This system helps protect the brain from rotational energy by allowing up to 10 to 15 mm of relative motion between the helmet and head during impacts.
To further enhance protection, Giro combines D2 Construction to help aid MIPS Spherical. D2 Construction pairs two densities of EPP foam to tackle high and low speed impacts. This offers impressive resilience, a crushable foam that regains shape while retaining it's protective properties after multiple impacts. The Emerge helmet features a Stash-Fit system, Giro have added a pocket in the liner where you can drop different thickness foam patches to optimize the fit of the helmet.
A new trend is picking up by wearing goggle straps under the helmet! So Giro have added a Strap Channel in the interior of the liner to make it much easier for riders to run their goggle straps under the helmet, this popular new-school style option in now functional and wont disrupt comfort.
For cooling the helmet is fitted with Super Cool Vents and Stack Ventilation, vents at the front of the helmet is aligned with the top of the goggles to allow warm, and potentially damp air that comes from the goggle to quickly escape from the helmet, while top air vents keeps you dry and comfortable.
