Giro launches new helmet for ‘progressive’ MTB riders

Giro Sport Design has today announced the Tyrant MIPS.

“Racers are still racing, but so much of the real energy in mountain biking is now out playing in the woods – building the ultimate lines and sessioning the best parts,” said Giro marketing director Dain Zaffke.

“Tyrant is made for riders who are more likely to be wearing jeans than a number but are still pushing boundaries with their riding. We wanted to give them a helmet that matches their style but still delivers the latest evolution in protection.”

At the heart of Tyrant lies MIPS Spherical, the latest iteration of the multi-directional impact protection system. Like a ball-and-socket joint, two layers of foam rotate around each other below a hardshell with in-mould polycarbonate Hardbody lower wrap.

One layer is EPS and the other is a lower density EPP foam. The added coverage of a ‘full-cut’ design brings confidence while Stack ventilation at the brow line and 14 vents combine with internal channelling to keep riders cool. A new version of the RocLoc Air DH retention system locks everything in place, while adjustable cheek pads customise the fit.
