If you’re a skier, then you already know that helmets are essential. Not only do they keep your head safe in the event of a fall, but they also protect it in everyday life. While there are more advanced safety measures you can take with modern helmets, even a simple helmet like the Giro Avance Basic MIPS Race Ski Helmet will protect your head from concussions and debris. Read on to find out what makes this helmet so good.
Nothing is more important than your head. Protect yours with the Giro Avance MIPS Race Ski Helmet. This helmet offers multi-directional impact protection system (MIPS) technology, a breakaway visor, and an aerodynamic design to keep you safe and looking good at all times. The helmet can be adjusted with one hand for quick on-the-mountain changes, and its elastic fit system provides the ultimate in customizable fit.
The Giro Avance is ideal for aggressive skiers looking for a helmet with superior fit and comfort. The helmet features the Giro Cinch Pro fit system which offers multiple fit points to customize the fit during use. The helmet is designed to be compatible with a variety of goggles including Smith Vantage, Dragon NFX, Bolle Smoke Republic and others. We liked the fact that this helmet had a removable goggle lock to secure your goggles from moving when achieving higher speeds. This will ensure you have better visibility and keep your goggles from hitting you in the face at high speeds.
Giro’s Avance MIPS Race helmet is the next evolution of ski helmets, it’s the most advanced protection system available.
With Snell certification, MIPS technology and Giro Air Management Systems for ventilation, the Avance is the perfect choice for racers looking to keep a low profile while still enjoying all the modern conveniences of in-mold construction and multi-compound foam.
