Giro (USA) – "Shape the Wind".
According to Giro, "the Vanquish™ Mips helmet is the pinnacle of performance road cycling helmet technology. The science of air flow, and the art of mastering it, dictated the helmet’s silhouette and ventilation designs from the beginning, with months of aerodynamic development, dozens of iterations and extensive pro rider testing. The result is Vanquish MIPS—the ultimate aero road helmet".
"This no-compromise helmet is packed with progressive features designed to enhance your ride, from best-in-class aerodynamic efficiency, to exceptional ventilation, to innovative solutions in head protection. Whether you’re hammering solo off the front, smashing the bike leg of an Ironman or laying down maximum wattage in the dash to the finish line, the Vanquish shapes the wind to work for you", explained Giro.
An aerodynamic “cliff” tricks the air by reducing drag and providing the aerodynamic efficiency of a full teardrop helmet, in a profile that is more comfortable and versatile in a variety of head angles.
Roc Loc Air Mips™:
An innovative combination of the Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (Mips) and Giro’s proprietary Roc Loc® Air fit system that makes the Vanquish™ better ventilated, supremely comfortable, and more protective in certain impacts.
Wind Tunnel Ventilation™:
Wind Tunnel™ ventilation allows air to flow smoothly across the top of the rider’s head to deliver optimum cooling around the entire helmet, and works to reduce aerodynamic drag.
This shield makes makes the Vanquish™ even faster by streamlining airflow, and features an all new road-tuned Vivid™ lens that increases contrast and definition while keeping colors true-to-life.
A multi-density foam construction saves weight and allows the Vanquish™ to help manage a wide range of impact energies.
Four Polycarbonate Hardbodies™:
These hardbodies make the helmet lighter, more aerodynamically efficient and more durable.
