RULE THE ROAD.
With a modern, rounded shape and massive ventilation, this new high-visibility road helmet deLivers speed and comfort to up your road game.

Features

  • TransTextura Plus™ anti-microbial padding helps fight bacteria growth by pulling sweat from a rider’s head and transferring it through the AeroVent exhaust ports. The natural property of the fabric inhibits microbes that cause odors
  • Low and high speed impact-tuned construction with optimized low-density EPS, and an ultra-thin toughened polycarbonate shell
  • Cinch Pro™ fit system offers optimal coverage by cradling the occipital bone for full protection, support and comfort
  • Lightweight, LiteForm™ webbing wraps around the head better for a more secure fit and is hydrophobic so it won’t absorb sweat or stretch out like other webbing
  • Reflective graphic elements that enhance complete visibility from all angles in low light conditions
  • Also available with MIPS Brain Protection System

Specifications

  • Western: S (51-55cm);M (55-59cm);L (59-63cm
  • Asian: S (52-56cm);M (56-60cm);L (60-64cm
  • Weight: 290g (size M, CPSC/CE
  • Certifications: CPSC/CE;AS/NZS

Highlights

Designed with Giant's AirFlow ventilation system, Cinch Pro fit system and a modern, rounded shape, Strive is an all-rounder road helmet with purpose-built features and technologies.

BRAIN PROTECTION SYSTEM

BRAIN PROTECTION SYSTEM Image

MIPS is a patented brain protection system designed to reduce rotational motion from angled impacts that can cause strain in the brain. MIPS mimics the brain’s own protection system inside the skull by adding a low-friction layer between the head and helmet. A helmet with MIPS can absorb more rotational motion from an angled impact.

MIPS REDUCES STRAIN TO THE BRAIN

MIPS REDUCES STRAIN TO THE BRAIN Image

The MIPS patented Brain Protection System was developed by some of the world’s leading researchers in biomechanics and neuroscience at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

Strain level images from lab tests where two identical helmets, one with MIPS and one without, tested at the same speed show a clear difference. The more red, the more strain in the brain. A helmet with MIPS reduces the rotational motion transmitted to the brain.

WHAT HAPPENS ON IMPACT?

WHAT HAPPENS ON IMPACT? Image

When the head is subjected to an angled impact, the brain slides along a membrane on the inner surface of the skull, which reduces the rotational motion transmitted to the brain. This dynamic was copied and technically applied to create the MIPS Patented Brain Protection System. It is a low-friction layer between the head and helmet, which in experimental and numerical tests has shown a reduction of rotational motion to the brain.

PROTECTION IN ALL HELMET CATEGORIES

PROTECTION IN ALL HELMET CATEGORIES Image

In a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System the shell and the liner are separated by a low friction layer. When a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System is subjected to an angled impact, the low friction layer allows the helmet to slide relative to the head. The MIPS Brain Protection System doesn’t interfere with other properties of helmets, such as design and comfort. Since 1996, research and tests have been performed to compare a helmet with the MIPS Brain Protection System to a conventional helmet. The results showed that it was possible to reduce the rotational motion transmitted to the brain by adding the MIPS Brain Protection System.
