The Switchblade™ MIPS full-face mountain bike helmet is Giro's ASTM downhill certified cycling helmet with a removable chin bar. Everything about the Switchblade is optimized for the descent, and that’s why it’s triple certified to CPSC, EN-1078 and ASTM-1952-DH with and without the chin bar. The chin bar is easy to remove; just push the buttons under the chin bar, rotate up, and remove, and it’s just as easy to reinstall! Take a look at the video above for a demonstration.
The Switchblade MIPS downhill helmet features the Roc Loc® Air DH fit system, which has a bumper around the dial to prevent accidental adjustments if your helmet contacts your backpack or neck brace—all while keeping you cool. When the chinbar comes off, Wind Tunnel cheek pad ventilation adds even more cooling power as you start to climb. Plus, the full-cut style gives this helmet an aggressive look and provides ASTM certified coverage even when the chinbar is removed. When your ride is all about descending, your helmet should be too, and the Switchblade MIPS is the only removable chinbar helmet that is truly built for the down.
In-mould construction fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet’s impact absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows Giro to sculpt better ventilation systems, so In-mould helmets can be lighter and cooler than traditional helmets.

The Hydrophilic Pad can absorb up to 10 times its own weight in water, helping you manage sweat while riding. The pad retains moisture to prevent sweat from dripping into your eyes, and then dries quickly. The antimicrobial, X-Static lining helps to reduce odour, keeping your helmet fresh.
What is MIPS?
• MIPS is a Brain Protection System
• Rotational motion can cause brain injuries
• The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact
• MIPS adds protection
