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 rotational force or sloshing caused by certain, oblique impacts.

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.

Sweet noggin protection!

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

Was looking for an updated helmet to replace my old one (7ish years old). Went with this one due to nice sale price (lucky my head is a small)! So far it works/fits like a charm. Haven't had any crashes yet but seems solid. MIPS tech seems cool but can't speak to its effectiveness. Great for the confidence as I'm thinking about entering an enduro race in a few months. Will update when I've used it more frequently in more varying conditions.

Comfortable coverage

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

I grabbed the Feature a few weeks ago and love that it provides more coverage on the back of my head than my previous helmet. It's not quite as ventilated and with no ponytail port to keep my hair off my neck I'm sure it will be on the warm side. Nevertheless, I'll take the added protection any day!

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.

MIIIIIIPS

  • 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....update 3/7/17

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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
***update*** I have worn this for almost two seasons and love the fit of the helmet. I almost don't even know it is on. Fortunately I know that the MIPS works. I took a nasty spill right on the top of my dome. The MIPS worked as advertised and there were no shear forces on my head, the helmet took the brunt of the crash. I will always buy MIPS helmets from now on.

Great fit....update 3/7/17
