If rolling hills, small country lakes, and wide open spaces are what get you out the door when it's time to ride far more than splits, course records, and training plans, the Ember MIPS was made for you. Based on the design of Giro's pricier Synthe helmet, the Ember caters to those who demand functionality from their gear, without strict constraints on weight or budget.
MIPS, or Multi Directional Impact Protection System, refers the a thin basket added to the helmet's interior that moves slightly upon impact to absorb some of the brain-damaging rotational energy generated in certain crashes. Together, MIPS and the Ember's In-Mold polycarbonate shell back up your brain in the event of a crash, without weighing you down during the majority of the time when you're safely upright. One-handed fit adjustment and a ponytail-compatible design ensure you're able to secure the fit you want without wasting valuable ride time, and a strategic arrangement of 26 vents keep air moving continuously throughout the helmet to prevent overheating. Plus, the Ember's aesthetics purposely match Giro's 2017 apparel collection, so if you're into coordinating, you're in the right place.

- I've used it several times
Have been using my new helmet about a month. It is a great fit-very comfortable my first ride. It is nice looking & easy to put on. I like that it is easy to pull a pony tail through the back & then adjust it. Have needed a little extra patience to remove my helmet a couple of times as my hair has gotten caught in the MIPS system. But I like knowing that the MIPS is providing more protection for my head!
