After two teams raced it at the Tour de France, the Giro Vanquish MIPS aero road helmet was launched with claims of aerodynamic speed increases over the Synthe of 13 percent and Air Attack by seven percent.
This is one fast helmet
A magnetic shield with a Zeiss lens is included. Giro says the shield improves aero speed by another two percent over the Synthe when tested at 40kph. Zeiss tuned the lens for Giro to increase contrast on the road. When not using the shield, you can flip it upside-down over the front of the helmet, with magnets again holding it in place. For riders who don’t want to use the shield, Giro added sunglass arm grippers in the front vents for housing sunglasses.
Giro say the Vanquish™MIPS® is the pinnacle of high-performance road cycling helmets, featuring the innovative TransformAir design that actively streamlines airflow to reduce drag. Inside the Vanquish is an EPS liner with progressive layering, and our renowned RocLoc® Air system seamlessly integrated with MIPS Technology to enhance comfort and cooling power while providing an additional measure of protection. So whether you’re hammering off the front, smashing an Ironman course, or laying down maximum wattage in the dash to the finish line, the Vanquish shapes the wind to work for you.
