Way back in 1998, Giro developed the Switchblade, one of mountain biking's first ever convertible helmets. Sadly, the world wasn't quite ready for that kind of forward thinking tech back then, and the tech wasn't actually viable, so 1998's Switchblade was a bit of a flop.

But a lot has changed since then, and with the rise of the enduro scene, convertible helmets are all the rage. That's why Giro decided that it's finally time to bring back the Switchblade, albeit with a totally new design and cutting edge tech. Giro calls the new Switchblade MIPS their most complex helmet ever, and it's easy to see that that claim is no exaggeration. The Switchblade's hearty chinbar slides on or off easily while riding with interlocking medal guidebars, it features MIPS, twenty vents, two visor options, and it passes the rigorous ASTM downhill testing standard with and without the chinbar engaged. That makes the Switchblade the perfect choice for riders seeking dependable versatility no matter how aggressive the terrain.

Simply put, Giro's new take on the Switchblade is an enduro rider's dream come true. There's never been a convertible helmet that's this easy to use and this reliable. The Giro Switchblade MIPS is nothing less than the new Gold Standard in enduro helmets.
