Giro Sport Design, the cycling world’s design leader, has launched the Ethos Mips and the Ethos Mips Shield.
These compact and stylish commuter helmets feature integrated LED lights and turn signals, controlled via an intuitive, handlebar-mounted remote, as well as the added protection of Mips® Brain Protection System. The Giro Ethos Mips and Ethos Mips Shield are available now from authorized Giro retailers worldwide and www.giro.com for $270 US MSRP / €289,95 (Ethos Mips Shield) and $250 US MSRP / €269,95 (Ethos Mips).
“Riding has always been a revolutionary mode of transportation, and that’s true today more than ever,” said Peter Nicholson, Giro Brand Manager. “Whether they’re riding an e-bike to the office, pedaling to the grocery store, or shuttling the kids to school on a cargo bike, more riders are mixing it up in traffic; and they can benefit from the added visibility and protection of the new Ethos Mips or Ethos Mips Shield.”
Both helmets feature integrated LED front white lights, rear red lights, and amber turn signals with 4 light modes, which can all be adjusted and controlled via an intuitive handlebar remote. The entire system is rechargeable via USB-C with a run-time of 11 hours in low-blink mode (25 lumens front, 15 lumens rear) and 7.5 hours in the high-blink mode (45 lumens front, 30 lumens rear). Switch to low solid mode, and the estimated runtime is 5.5 hours (25 lumens front, 10 lumens rear), while high solid will run for 2.5 hours (40 lumens front, 25 lumens rear).
The Ethos Mips features a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) soft rubber waterproof brim, while the Ethos Mips Shield includes a clear, molded eye shield that stylishly adds protection from the elements while still allowing riders to use their existing eyewear. Despite the added technology in both helmets, in-mold construction keeps the weight manageable, full hardbody coverage adds durability, and a Roc Loc® City fit system plus quick-dry padding ensures comfort.
The Ethos Mips and Ethos Mips Shield are available in three colorways and sizes S, M, and L.
