Rock solid.

Styled after their top-tier Synthe helmet, the Giro Cinder MIPS blends high-end features and a lightweight construction. You'll stay cool while you cheat the wind with the Cinder's aero design that sports 26 Wind Tunnel™ vents and internal channeling, but the strength of the EPS foam shell stays intact thanks to internal SL Roll Cage™ reinforcement. A MIPS Multi-Directional Impact Protection System further increases safety in case of a crash, using a slip-plane mechanism to redirect impact forces away from your head. Meanwhile, comfort is right up with there with the best of them with a Roc Loc® 5 retention system offering one-handed adjustment of tension and vertical position, while the Air-FX padding lets the Cinder MIPS rest lightly on your head throughout even the longest rides.

Available in multiple colors. Claimed weight is 320 g.

Nice, reasonably priced MIPS helmet.
by arniebp

Comfortable and easy to adjust, good air flow through the helmet. Having received a concussion in a bike crash, I wanted the MIPS system in my next helmet but didn't want to break the bank. This helmet fits my needs.

I like the look and feel of this helmet. I only wanted to purchase a MIPS helmet at an affordable price and the Giro Cinder fit the bill. It feels light and the retention system is comfortable. I highly recommend.

Nice helemet - similar to the Synthe
by ajlacombe

This helmet looks very similar to the Giro Synthe helmet. The venting is close to the Synthe as well. The plastic inner liner of the MIPs structure seems to make the helmet a little hotter and the helmet is not super light. For the money though this helmet provides features that are very close to the more expensive Synthe.

I actually prefer the look of the Cinder helmet.

Great fit but doesn't do well to push sweat away from my face.
by Anonymous

Overall fit well and comfortable. The strap and adjustment and well made and work as intended.

Like all helmets, my biggest complaint is they do a poor job of re-directing sweat away from the face.

I ended up using a Halo Headband underneath and there is enough adjustment to fit right.

If i try using the Halo Headband with Solar flap (to cover the neck) then the fit is too tight.

Wanted a MIPS helmet to replace my aging Bell Ghisalo that needed new cushions.

Saw this and the discounted Gold Express deal and purchased it. It fits nicely and is comfortable to wear with plenty of ventilation thus far. However, I have yet to wear it in the summer humidity here in Houston.

This is somewhat of a silly question, I wear my helmet to protect my head.

I find the strap difficult to undo, unlike the numerous Giro helmets i have owned

I received my helmit in a reasonable amount of time & it was well packaged. I ordered the Giro hi-viz yellow multi directional impact protection system (MIPS). It fits well & can be seen for a long distance which is important since I ride a recumbent bike & sit lower than a road bike rider.

Excellent Helmet! Fits Well and Comfortable!
by Don

I use the helmet for daily touring bicycle rides up to 75 miles per ride with ranges from 10 to 75 miles. I like the fact that it is MIPS and that it is comfortable. It has excellent air flow through which is especially good for summer heat months. Nothing much I don't like about it except that I hope I never need the MIPS components.

Very nice fitting helmet and high visibility to boot
by Pat

This is a very nice helmet that features the added protection of MIPS. I upgraded after using the same helmet for the past 3-4 years. I really like the Hi Vis yellow color that you can see from a very far distance. Probably a little heavier than some helmets, but that is not really noticeable once the helmet is on your head. I ride group rides 1-2 time per week.

Comfortable helmet
by SDH

Great MIPS helmet, comfortable with the excellent Giro Roc Loc system. Hi viz yellow color improves cyclist visibility to traffic. Only negative is that helmet is somewhat warm with poor sweat control, that is more sweat than usual drips into the eyes, so need a sweat band.

I really like this helmet. It fits just right, not too tight or loose. It is much better than my previous helmet. While it's not the cheapest helmet, I figured my brain was worth something to protect. I'd get this helmet again if I had to.
