Giro Savant Mips Helmet

Giro Savant MIPS Helmet 2015

Boasting authentic style and performance, the Savant is an excellent road helmet for riders who are price-conscious but don't want to sacrifice performance or safety. The Savant doesn't cost as much as Giro's high-end models, but it's built around the same basic technologies that make a Giro helmet unique.

Giro's In-Mold construction process fuses the helmet's outer shell with its impact-absorbing EPS liner during the molding process, making the liner literally a part of the helmet. This process reinforces areas around vents and ribs, creating a one-piece exoskeleton that allows the helmet to be lighter, more durable, and better ventilated than traditional designs. The proprietary Wind Tunnel™ ventilation system, combines active vents with internal exhaust channels that thrust cool, fresh air over and around the riders head-while forcing heat and stale air out. The significant increase in air ventilation gives you an advantage on tough climbs and when the weather gets hot. Giro spent two years fine tuning the Roc Loc fit system to bring you Roc Loc 5, a groundbreaking fit system with an unmatched level of comfort, stability, adjustability, and weight savings. With Roc Loc 5, you can easily dial-in both fit tension and adjust vertical position with a single hand. Twist the ratcheting, micro-adjusting dial for a tighter fit on rough terrain, and back it off a bit and relax across the flats or a warm climb. A three-position bracket allows for 15 millimeters of up/down movement for easy fine-tuning of vertical positions. Even with these impressive features, Roc Loc 5 is 40 percent lighter than its popular predecessor, Roc Loc 4.

The Giro Savant MIPS helmet is equipped with the patented MIPS system to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in the case of an oblique impact. Where most helmets are tested for vertical impacts, studies have shown that the human brain is more sensitive to oblique impacts. MIPS technology mimics nature’s own method of reducing forces transferred to the brain in the event of a crash. When subjected to an oblique impact, a membrane between the brain the skull allows the brain to slide along the inner surface of the skull, which ultimately reduces the forces transferred to the brain. MIPS helmets use a low friction layer between the shell and liner to mimic this process, which significantly reducing the forces transferred to the brain.

Features:

  • MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System)
  • Suggested use: Enthusiast Road, Triathlon, Touring, Urban/Commute, Cruiser/Casual
  • In-Mold polycarbonate shell
  • Roc Loc 5 fit system

Comfortable
Before buying this, I used the Giro Atmos, and though it was insanely lightweight, it was NOT comfortable. The Savant on the other hand, is impressively comfortable. It may lack the ventilation and svelte weight of the more high-end helmets, but not enough to make a noticeable difference to non-racing, everyday riders. Count me in as a loyal Savant advocate!

Very Comfortable!
Mips technology is where it's at! If you can afford the extra cost, I would highly recommend buying any helmet with Mips Technology.

Hopefully never find out how good it is.
Purchased from Jensen because they had the best deal. Since this helmet is new, everyone is selling it at the same price. Jensen, however, had a good deal in that they gave a giftcard with the purchase. Since I was buying other stuff, the best deal. Oh, and delivery/service by Jensen was good.
