  • Giro Switchblade MIPS Helmet. The Giro Switchblade MIPS Helmet is a downhill certified full face helmet with a removable chinbar. Everything about the Switchblade is optimised for the descent which is why it‚Äôs certified to the highest levels of protection standards with and without the chinbar Ventilation and Protection Security. This helmet features the Roc Loc Air DH fit system, which has a bumper around the dial to prevent unintentional adjustments if your helmet comes into contact with your backpack or neck brace. When the chinbar is removed, wind tunnel cheek pad ventilation adds cooling power as you start to climb. The full-cut style gives this helmet an aggressive look whilst also providing certified safety coverage, even if you do not use the chinbar Easy to Remove and Re-install. When your ride is all about descending, so should your helmet and the Switchblade MIPS is the only removable chinbar helmet that is truly built for the descent. When climbing back up the mountain, the chinbar is easy to remove and is done so by simply pushing the buttons under the chinbar, rotating upwards, and then removing. It is just as easy to re-install and when fitted provides rigid and reassuring chin protection Features: Sizing Note: Fit as per size guideConstruction: In-mould constructionVentilation: 20 vents with internal channelling, Wind Tunnel‚Ñ¢ cheek pad ventilationFit System: Roc Loc¬Æ Air DH systemRemovable chinbarP.O V.

No matter what type of bike product your buying, from the simple accessories through to the full setup of your custom built road bike, there are lots of important considerations that you should take into account, especially when you’re shopping online and unable to test the product first. This is especially true when you’re buying products like Helmets.

Our aim is simple, help you get the very best products for your budget. Whether that’s Giro Switchblade MIPS Helmet 2019 or an alternative, we’ll do our best to find you unbiased, genuine customer reviews to help you make your decision. We’ve found 451 different products in the Helmets category at Chain Reaction Cycles and we’ve also managed to find 152 products from Giro (although only 53 of the 152 are in the Helmets category).

Our first piece of advice is for you to spend some time really getting to know what it is you’re looking for. An important feature for one person might be totally pointless and irrelevant to you, so get a good idea of what you want and need from your Helmets. Note down this list of key features that your product must have, that way when you’re comparing alternatives you have a starting point to decide whether one product meets your needs or not.

Price is the next and probably one of the most important factors of a purchase, so it’s really worthwhile spending a bit of time analysing the price of Giro Switchblade MIPS Helmet 2019 and seeing how it stacks up against those offered by different brands or even other alternatives from Giro.

There’s quite a variance in price in this category too with the lowest priced product we found at £2.99 and most expensive was £450.

The next stage we went on to, was to look at the price of products from the brand: Giro. The average price was £88.95 and we found that the price varies right from as little as £6.99 up to £374.99 with Giro products.

And finally we thought it would be good to give you an idea of Giro products that appear specifically in the Helmets category. So you can see that the price of Giro Switchblade MIPS Helmet 2019 at £249.99 is great value considering the average price of Giro Helmets is £86.00 and the price varies from £17.99.
