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.
