The Giro Savant has had a facelift from last year’s design, but perhaps the most exciting change is the inclusion of a MIPS liner. Even if helmet tech does’t really get you going, if we told you that MIPS was developed to protect the brain from lateral impacts you might now be interested? Working with, not instead of an EPS liner, MIPS protects the brain from the far more common lateral impacts whilst the EPS liner deals with any radial blows. This dynamic duo make the Savant an incredibly safe helmet if you are unfortunate enough to have a prang or spill.
Finished to Giro’s usual high standards - think Roc Loc 5 adjustment, plush interior padding and 25 airy vents, the Savant packs plenty of features inside its lightweight outer shell.
