    Details

    Low-profile protection.

    The Giro Feature MIPS Mountain Bike Helmet merges enhanced impact protection with low-profile, trail-savvy style. The big story with this helmet is its MIPS or Multi Impact Protection System. Originally developed by Scandinavian neurosurgeons, the MIPS system places a low-friction layer in the helmet to reduce concussion-causing rotational acceleration of the brain resulting from impacts. Ultimately, this means you'll be better equipped to come out unscathed from serious spills when you're pushing your limits on the trail.

    Giro's In-Mold construction mates a polycarbonate shell with an EPS liner, allowing Giro's designers the opportunity to place better ventilation within the helmet, as evidenced by its 12 vents with internal channeling. Its adjustable moto-style visor keeps the sun from obscuring your vision when you're riding through open areas on bright days. Additionally, you'll find Giro's In-Form fit system for a dialed fit with the simple twist of a dial.

    Great lid, questionable MIPS liner

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    So far, so good. The graphic seems durable and the fit is spot on (way better than companies that combine S/M and L/XL). I haven't experienced it being any warmer than any other helmet I've had, ventilation seemed adequate for a 3/4 shell.

    I'm not fully convinced that the MIPS liner in this helmet will do much in the event of a crash. Compared to a lot of other designs in my moto helmets it seems like this is just a cheap way to sell something as having a MIPS liner. However, the price difference over the non-MIPS version is minimal, so why not have the added protection in the event that you need to use it?

    Good helmet

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I decided to pick up the Feature since it was on sale. Out of the box it seems great, easy to adjust, comfortable, and fits true to size. My only gripe was that one of the velcro patches that holds the left front pad in place was missing, leaving the pad to slide around. I fixed that my taking a piece of velcro out of my old helmet and sticking it in place. Not something I should have to do with a new helmet, but it was an easy fix. The MIPS seems like a great feature and I hope I don't have to test it out. Overall, an unbeatable value at this price point.

    Slightly Warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Nice helmet, does its job. I'm not really a helmet snob, but this has good adjustments and is quite comfortable. I have a shaved head and 23cm; the medium fits great. The only downside is that it is a little warm, but for the price, it is hard to beat.

    Great helmet for price

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Haven't had to test the benefits of the MIPS yet but that's prob a good thing overall solid helmet got the all black really looks nice! has decent air flow wish there was a few more holes honestly can get kinda stuffy up there on really hot days. Would recommend to the others considering and for the price what's not to like!! Keep on rocking BackCountry!

    Great helmet for price

    ballin on a budget

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Got a super nice helmet at the beginning of the season and cracked it 2 weeks into buying it. Stuck between a rock and a hard place picked this bad larry up and have been stoked. All in all in breaths well, looks good, and with MIPS will protect you head better then anything at this price point. Feel free to reach out with any bike related questions! Always happy to help ensure you get equipped properly for the trails.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I have both versions of this helmet because I like it so much although while one is more for style and this one for functionality. The MIPS liner seems very promising and the fit is identical to the standard helmet so if you can afford the MIPS, I say do it!

    Nice helmet

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This helmet fits great and in form fit sytems helps ensure that. The MIPS is a huge plus and the helmet looks great. It's affordable compared to other MIPS options and could use a few extra vents to help keep the temperature down. Great helmet overall.

    MIPS Virgin

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    First MIPS helmet i've owned. Honestly I can't say if it truly works as thankfully I have not smashed my head..knock on wood. Fit is nice and has good adjustability to lock into place. It can get a wee bit hot during the warmer months but for the price and features its a solid lid.

    great helmet

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Love this helmet. the MIPS is nice and fit was great. No problems with ventilation in Portland here. A few other people in the office picked one up also that are full time MTB enthusiast.

    Giro

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Product fit is great. Very comfortable and I feel well protected. It is a little warm in summer months(I think there should be more vents). Overall, 5 stars and Backcountry delivered fast and free!

    Great fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I feel the helmet is a great fit, however it is a bit warm. I am using this helmet for "cool weather" rides. The ventilation doesn't "breathe" very well. Overall the helmet fits good and has great coverage. I love the color

    Great fit

    Comfortable, but hot

    • Fit: True to size

    Really comfy helmet, between nice padding and perfect fit (for me) it's easy to forget you're wearing it on a cool day. Ventilation is sacrificed for protection, though, so for an XC ride on in the hot sun, be prepared to sweat.

    Too hot and an odd fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Although it is comfortable resting on my head, that's where the good fit ends. I could not adjust the sizing wheel on the back of the helmet without using two hands. Whenever I tried I could not help but push the helmet further forward on my head and then I was unable to adjust the wheel. Perhaps it's because the helmet comes down further in the back? In addition, it needs more vents or at least bigger ones. Sweat was pouring down my face on a cool morning ride the first time I wore this helmet. The vents just get too small by the time they reach one's head that they are almost useless. I believe some of the front padding - the MIPs portion? - covers part of some vents.

    Solid Helmet

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have not had the misfortune in truly testing this helmet!

    That being said. The helmet is light, comfortable, decently ventilated and looks good.

    Given looks shouldn't be a main point in picking your helmet, I have always had a little grips with the super ventilated helmets and how they look. I will sacrifice a little extra sweat for this helmet.

    Not only is it a great MTB helmet, but I popped off the visor and have been using it to commute to work and it has been great. Hardly can tell it is there.

    The adjustment in the back is super nice and easy to use. Gets a very snug, comfortable fit.

    I was long overdue for a new helmet and I am happy I landed on this one. Would definitely recommend.

    Nice helmet - perfect fit, I recommend

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Not too much to say. I measured my head at 58.5 cm / 23 inches and ordered a medium. It fits perfectly - but I do have a shaved head - so you full mop guys may want to consider a larger size.

    Super light weight, very comfortable and breathable. Im not sold on the MIPS technology because is seems redundant - unless you have glued the helmet to your bald head. MIPS offers a "slip" between your scalp and the interior of the helmet - protecting your cranium from "rolling" hits - not direct impacts. In my mind, your hair offers the same protection as MIPS because it simply allows the helmet to "slip" around your skull during a rolling impact.

    Whatever - Im not a scientist, MIPS just seems to be over sold in my opinion. They make it sound really technical, but it's not.
