Advanced protection with a truly custom fit.
Offering streamlined protection for adventurous skiing and riding, the Giro Women's Fade MIPS Helmet features In-Mold construction for a lightweight, low-profile fit. Allowing for hours of skiing and riding comfort, Giro's In Form system securely wraps your head with its micro-adjustable dial. This adjustment system gives the Fade MIPS Helmet a truly custom fit, allowing you to focus on the terrain ahead, instead of fixating on an ill-fitting helmet.
The Multi-Directional Impact Protection System, or MIPS, lessens the impact of angled crashes when you're skiing and riding. It does this by placing a low-friction, elastomeric liner onto the EPS impact-absorbing foam. This allows the helmet's liner to rotate independently around your head in the event of an oblique impact, subsequently reducing the rotational forces that lead to serious head trauma on the slopes.
The tech doesn't stop there. Giro loaded the Fade MIPS with many of its best features, allowing you to ski and ride in total comfort and convenience. Seamless integration with Giro Goggles eliminates unsightly gaps while Stack Ventilation eliminates annoying goggle condensation on stormy days. Another cool feature, it's fully compatible with Outdoor Tech's speaker systems (sold separately), allowing you to jam out without messing with ear buds or pesky wires.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I really like this helmet. It is lightweight yet is MIPS rated. I luckily have not tested the impact protection personally. It is plush and comfortable and super easy to adjust. So if you sometimes wear a hat and sometimes not, no problem. A spin of the adjustment wheel takes a second. This helmet fits better than my previous one, even though I am at the bottom end of the M size range I can still wear it with no hat.
warm, comfortable, forgot i was wearing it after 10 minutes. Never wore a helmet before and this one was awesome.

Got this for the wife. She has a small noggin and a lot of women small helmets don't work for her. We tried 3 different ones and this one did the trick. Although we go by the sizing, for some reason the padding between the 3 varied the size just slightly. It's a great helmet, has MIPS, slots for headphones, warm, and is comfortable.
Are the earpads removable?
