The Giro Vanquish MIPS aero road helmet was created in the wind tunnel with both aerodynamics and ventilation in mind, attempting to provide riders with a single, "do everything" helmet. The result is a helmet that is the pinnacle of performance road cycling technology.
The Giro Vanquish MIPS has a helmet profile similar to road helmets that delivers more comfort and versatility than a long-tail aero helmet. Even though it lacks the long tail of a full teardrop-shaped helmet, the Giro Vanquish MIPS still provides similar aerodynamic efficiency thanks to a shape that creates an aerodynamic "cliff", tricking the air as it flows over the helmet and reducing drag.
The Giro Vanquish features a shield that includes a Vivid lens that improves contrast and definition while keeping colors true-to-life. Unlike many other helmets with attachable visors, the Vanquish MIPS helmet actually tests faster with the shield on.
The Giro Vanquisher utilizes MIPS technology, which stands for Multi Directional Impact Protection System. This system reduces friction and rotational impact forces using a liner that moves between the head and the helmet shell. Multi-density foam construction provides additional safety and security while keeping the overall weight down.
The ventilation system focuses on moving air effectively across the top of head while delivering optimum cooling around the entire helmet.
The fit of the Giro Vanquish has, in our experience, been true to size.
For those looking for a helmet that tests with the best aero helmets on the market without sacrificing the ventilation, versatility, and aesthetics of a road helmet, the Giro Vanquish MIPS is the best option on the market.
