Product Description
Switchblade MIPS Helmet by Giro
If you've got a weekend in the desert and some rowdy tricks you're itching to try, don't cut corners on your lid. Giro's brand new Switchblade MIPS Helmet encourages you and your DH monster to get rowdy and send it when you're out on slickrock, but it also backs you up with full face coverage, a removable chin guard, and the added protection of MIPS to help you stay safe when you crash hard. Not every weekend involves staring down do-or-die lines, which is why Giro made the Switchblade's chinbar removable. Snap it off quickly before you head out on a mellower trail ride and enjoy added ventilation from Giro's Wind Tunnel design, included specifically to provide as much airflow as possible on hot, sunny climbs. Giro's tried-and-true Roc Loc Air fit system makes an appearance on the Switchblade as well, but it comes tweaked to DH standards with a bumper protecting the dial from being unintentionally moved when it comes into contact with your pack or body armor. It's hard to believe that MIPS was a little-known technology just a few years ago, as the thin inner basket has become a ubiquitous option in the world of helmets. Giro doesn't mess around with the Switchblade, including the rotating inner liner to absorb the brain-damaging rotational energy created in certain crashes without compromising the helmet's lightness. Whether you've got the chinbar on or not, the Switchblade exceeds safety standards from all major governing bodies. If you're taking a break from POV coverage on a training ride, swap the visor with the integrated mount for the other visor without it; Giro ships the Switchblade with two separate visors to cut down on the risk of unused mounts adding weight and causing injury in crashes.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
