Giro Syntax MIPS® Helmet
The Syntax MIPS® Helmet combines a touch of European flair with slightly deeper coverage and high-performance features—all contained within a very slim design. The outer shell is molded from a tough polycarbonate that's fused permanently to the EPS foam liner using an In-Mold Hardbody™ construction process to enhance durability and ventilation without excess bulk.
- Comfortable and secure fit, thanks to the highly-adjustable Roc Loc® 5 Air MIPS® system
- Customizable feel for great stability and long-range comfort
- Wind Tunnel Ventilation with internal channeling to thrust cool air over and around the rider's head while forcing heat and stale air out
- Integrated MIPS® (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) which can provide an added measure of protection from rotational forces in the event of an angled impact
- Compatible with Roc Loc 5 LED (sold separately)

Bought this helmet to replace my Specialized helmet that was nine years old. My concerns were that it would be comfortable, well ventilated for summer months, and had the new MIPS technology. It met all those needs and find it to be a great replacement helmet at a good price.
It is rated well as a safe helmet as tested by Virginia Tech for a bike helmets.
Not a budget helmet, not an expensive helmet, but a great helmet! This thing has really good ventilation and is super light. I had a hard time finding a good helmet for my noggin due to a large ridge on the back of my skull. Most helmets weren't able to go down far enough below the ridge, but THIS helmet fit so well. Would recommend.
I really like this helmet. It fits and is comfortable. Compared to other Giros I've owned, it covers a bit more of my forehead but has great ventilation. The RolLoc system works great as usual. It's sleek and light. Would definitely buy this again.
I long have used Giro helmets, this one is not among my favorites. As prices of all helmets have risen it is tough finding great quality and fit, style and a price that one would like to pay. I do not like the buckle system on this as it in my view is not as good as some other models of a few years back.
Wanted a reasonably priced helmet with MIPS and High Viz in it but not completely High Viz in color. Could not have found a more perfect helmet. Comfortable, easily adjusts and not heavy. Very satisfied with this purchase.
Got the helmet to replace an old Giro that the plastic side piece broke. Wanted to try MIPS because just in case. Very happy with how it fits further down over my head even with cap underneath. Comfortable and easy to adjust with knob at back. Not overly expensive which I like. Would definitely recommend.
Stylish, comfortable, MIPS and a killer price point, what is not to like? I liked it enough to get two color ways, Black and Red and Matte Black and Gray, super comfy helmet.
I have been using the Giro Syntax MIPS helmet for road riding for almost a month now and my impressions are positive. This is my first helmet from the Giro brand and I'd thought I would see what all the hype was about. Many of my riding buddies use Giro helmets (especially the higher end models) and even my dad has this helmet. The large size seems to fit perfectly to my big melon right out of the box and with no adjustments to the straps. The dial at the back of the helmet is easy to adjust on the fly and I can usually get the right fit in about 16-20 clicks. Since I have a full head of hair and usually wear a cycling cap or headband, the airflow seems on par with my previous Bell Stratus and LG Quartz helmets, though, I personally don't think the helmet lacks any airflow - your experience may vary. I got the red and black color to compliment that of my bike and shoes. It looks much better in person but the picture online is pretty close. One thing I find lacking due to the vent placement is a place to securely put sunglasses when not wearing. Despite that small detail, the helmet is comfortable enough to wear all day even with sunglasses on and AfterShokz headphones. It's really light and sometimes I don't even notice I have it on. The deeper coverage of the helmet allows it to sit more forward on my head, and riders I know wished their Specialized and Bell helmets had this same feature. The helmet seems pretty durable over the long-term and I trust that it will keep me from getting seriously injured in the event of another crash. 2020 has not been too kind as I have already had three this year.
Overall, I would buy this helmet again and would recommend it to anyone. What you get when compared to other helmets is simply a no-brainer at this price point. I did quite a bit of research and definitely read my share of reviews before buying. For the sake of your noggin and making informed decisions, I recommend you do the same.
This helmet replaced an Oakley I'd bought previously. This helmet is much better. There are so many air vents that on a cool day in New England, I have to put on the shower cap. We've just had a mini-heat wave in Spring here, and I can already see how this helmet will be fantastic for riding in the warmer weather. Get one on sale if you can!
