Performance Innovation.

The Giro Aether MIPS Helmet marks a revolutionary leap forward in rotational energy management. Inside the Aether, a dual-density EPS foam liner helps manage a wide range of impact energies, while also boasting deep internal channeling to provide cooling airflow. Giro's proprietary MIPS® Spherical technology is integrated between the layers of EPS foam - instead of against the rider's head - giving riders the benefits of MIPS without obstruction to comfort or cooling power.

The stunning silhouette is formed by a sleek six-piece shell that surrounds a series of massive vents, with added structural reinforcement via a shatter-resistant AURA reinforcing arch. The final touch is the Roc Loc 5+ Air fit system, featuring 3-way fit tuning, that allows for easy adjustment in seconds.

Features:

  • Sleek road helmet with 11 vents and Wind Tunnel internal channeling for optimal comfort and breathability.
  • Shatterproof Roll Cage "Halo" Reinforcement.
  • MIPS Spherical technology shifts the MIPS system between the EPS foam, rather than next to the skin.
  • Featherweight webbing with Slimline Buckle.
  • Sunglass docking ports in front vents.
  • Ponytail compatible.
  • Compatible with Roc Loc 5 LED (sold separately)

The Aether MIPS is a great helmet if it fits you well. Helmets are somewhat like saddles. You have to find the right shape/size for your head and various brands are different. For me Giro has always fit well and I have had several. I worked my way up to the Aether and currently own two. I'm back buying another with the current sale. For me the Aether is lightweight and comfortable. I put it on and forget about it. Like saddles, if you are thinking about it during a ride it probably isn't right. If you ride without ever thinking about it and forget it's there then it's working for you. It also holds my glasses - either Oakley or Rudy Project very securely when not on my face.

I did have the pads wear out in mine over time but I found replacements available for order. A second set of pads should get me to the "expiration date" of helmet when retirement is due.

Well ventilated, good looking, but a more difficult fit and allows more sweat down the face
rating

Pros: Well ventilated, cutting-edge MIPS, good looks, great straps and adjustments

Cons: Difficult to fit versus prior Giros, allows sweat down the forehead.

I used the sizing chart as recommended given the different MIPS design and it said medium. Medium felt tight at the rear sides of my head -- like a flat spot pushing against the helmet. Tried large but it was HUGE on my head. I ended up with the medium -- very snug, almost too tight, but when I ride I do not notice this. I wear large in other helmets with no issues. The fit of this one is DIFFERENT, so hopefully it fits you better than me.

The front padding is from temple to temple which is nice but it is very thin. It takes very little sweating to saturate the pad and have sweat running down your forehead even with wearing a thicker skullcap such as Headsweats. This is much more of a problem with this helmet than any of my other helmets.

Summary: nice looking helmet with great tech and features, but the fit is more difficult and the front padding is not as absorbent and allows more sweat down the forehead -- perhaps a function of the tighter fit of the helmet on my head.

Metro Atlanta hot and humid.

My head , somewhat like a softened rectangle rather than round, has alway fit better in Giro helmets (Atmos, Aeon) rather than Bell helmets. The Aether maintains that same feel. Unsure about the real value of MIPS when my head would always slide around a little inside the helmet anyway and would be much more comfortable paying $100 less but the helmet feels great.

This is truly an awesome helmet. I was involved a bad bike crash on 1/25/20. I hit my head on the ground at high speed. Luckily, I did not have any serious head injuries, thanks to the helmet. I have 8 other helmets including POC, KASK and LAZER but this is my go-to helmet. Looks like I will have to buy another one from WesternBikeWorks.

Awesome Technology- For me Extremely Uncomfortably
rating
by Anonymous

14 of 19 customers found this review helpful.

The technology in this helmet is incredible. It is also extremely uncomfortable. The problem for me is it is cut about half an inch longer than other helmets. It pushes hard on the stems and bridge of my sunglasses and pushes them down on my nose. Because of the longer skirt it also digs into the back of my neck when I am looking up from riding on the drops. No adjustments cure this ... in my case. I would love to have this state of the art protection, but I am not willing to ride without my Oakleys and I cant tolerate the discomfort.

Not as comfortable as previous Giro helmets for me - I have an oval headshape and this one is a little more round than oval in shape. Lightweight, great airflow, loving the upgraded straps. Overall, a very nice helmet with leading edge technology when purchased at a sale price.

I've been riding Giro helmets since 1998. I've always been happy with them. I tend to go to the high end helmets for the ventilation as I over heat easily. I have had Pneumo, and Atmos in the past. I ordered the same size for my new Aether and it is snug before cinching.

So far this helmet has been great, very comfortable and great looking. I have not tested it in hot weather yet but from a design perspective it looks like it will be even better than my Synthe.

Unlike a previous comment, the helmet fits great and it allows me to wear my Oakleys without pushing down on my nose and it is very comfortable in a super tuck position. By the way it looks great.

The helmet is lighter weight than others that I have owned in recent years. The MIPS design gives me a sense of safety and I chose the bright colors to be visible to motorists. The tightening mechanism works fine. The chinstrap closure could be more high end, it is very basic.

Long Term Issues

This is great helmet out of the box -- light, comfortable, etc. But over time -- a little over a year -- a few problems creep in. First, the fitting mechanism in the rear is secured together by tiny plastic pins that wear down and then become useless -- the mechanism will still tighten, but it isn't held together so it slips around. Second, the plastic that comes around each side to a point in the front of the helmet peels off from the front and sticks out (pointy and sharp). Several riders in my group have this helmet and I've noticed that the same thing has happened to them.

It is less than two years now and I'm shopping for a new helmet. Disappointing for such a high-end lid. This helmet is probably best for pros who would get their helmets replaced frequently, but for a regular rider looking for a helmet that lasts, not so much.

Giro Aether Spherical MIPS Helmet
rating
by Bryan
Brea

Had to replace my Giro Synthe after taking a header at 45 mph in Big Bear. Replaced it with the Aether, so far so good. The helmet sits lower on the forehead which puts the sunglasses right at the base of the helmet. Will see how that works out? Also the helmet makes noises when the base and outer shell rotate from each other while riding. That my drive me crazy?? Quality, Fit and Finish are Nice.

This is a fantastic-fitting helmet, with a wealth of adjustment points and long enough straps that it's good for my big melon. I love the Spherical addition to the MIPS liner this has to help with impact dispersion in a potential crash, which I hope I never have to test. It's also very light and airy, making it a joy to ride with because you don't hardly know it's there and it breathes well on hot days. Looking forward to trying the companion light for it.

It will fit Aether Helmets. Bought 2 Aether helmets & 1 light. I would not fit on my wife's helmet but would fit on mine with a loud click. the defect is in the Rock Lok system. Hers is a few millimeters thinner than mine. So upon another reviewer's review he Velcro'd the light to the Rock Lok 5. I did the same. IF you buy the Rock Lok 5 light & it will not properly snap into place. Use the 7/8" square Velcro tabs then cut them in 1/2. Attach to light first then to Rock Lok where it is suppose to go.

Comfortable and Cool Helmet

This is a replacement for a ten-plus year old Giro helmet that finally succumbed to the heat, the elements, and for when I have fallen over after forgetting to unclip. The Giro Aether is a very lightweight helmet that fits nicely over my melon and the rear dial attachment is quick and easy to adjust during a ride. The helmet stays cool, and I couldnt say anything but great things about it.
