Nothing out there can guarantee safety, and the field of head trauma protection is moving so fast that cutting edge one season is old news the next. One of the leaders in the marketplace is MIPS and the rotational impact protection that it provides.
The MIPS liner isn’t always the most comfortable option though, so with this in mind MIPS, Giro, and Bell worked together to create a new system with the same end result, but without needing a separate liner. The result is Giro’s Spherical Technology, a ball and socket design that splits the EPS foam liner into an inner and outer shell that fits one inside the other.
It allows for different foam densities as well as a slip plane without the need for a liner. If you prefer a road-style helmet for your gravel riding, the Giro Aether is an excellent option.
The Giro Aether MIPS Helmet is a protective, comfortable, and adjustable option that works well for cyclists who want a combination of both performance qualities and all-day comfort. With temperature regulation qualities and stylish and sleek looks, this helmet could be a good choice for any level of cyclist.
