Perfecting the goggle-to-helmet interface, the Giro Vue MIPS Helmet features a flip-down shield that replaces your traditional goggles. This shield provides a crystal-clear viewing window to the alpine environments while blocking harmful UV rays and eye-watering breezes from whipping through. It's mirrored to enhance the contrast of the snow, which is especially helpful on those days where flat lighting is prevalent. Besides its flip-down shield, the Vue MIPS is quite similar to Giro's traditional snow helmets, which is a good thing if you're seeking a low-profile lid with certified impact protection. In-Mold construction keeps it lightweight with its tough polycarbonate shell fused directly to the impact-absorbing EPS foam. It's packing MIPS technology, which stands for Multi-Direction Impact Protection System. MIPS technology places a low-friction elastomeric liner inside the helmet, which rotates independently around your head in the event of an angled crash, subsequently reducing the rotational forces transferred through the helmet.
