The new Giro Ember is bound to set ablaze your ride

For a brand established in the 1970’s to continually develop cutting-edge protective headwear, you can be assured that Giro knows a thing or two about safety and style whilst keeping the rider’s best interests at heart.

Giro has seen great success in cycling over the years with their colourful and bold MTB ranges, and their sleek road collections. When it comes to women’s cycling, Giro’s unwavering support is shown through their growing range of cycling wear, protective gear and casual apparel.

Giro Ember MIPS Women’s Road Helmet

New for 2018, Giro launched the Ember MIPS which is perhaps soon-to-be one of Giro’s most popular models amongst female cyclists.

Constructed from a lightweight and durable in-mold polycarbonate shell, Giro uses EPS foam to pad out and disperse energy from an impact. MIPS technology has been incorporated into the design – something Giro uses across a majority of their models to improve safety for the rider.

The Roc Loc 5 fitting system offers a great degree of adjustability so you can find the most comfortable fit for full-days in the saddle. The inner Thermoformed SL Roll Cage™ reinforcement cradles the head low enough that you can easily pull your pony-tail through as well.

The Giro Ember MIPS women’s road helmet has a whopping 26 vents also. They draw in the air and help it circulate around your head to keep you cool and feeling fresh throughout your ride.

Giro Ember MIPS Women’s Road Helmet: Verdict

Giro has made some considerable headway in creating a helmet which is slim, aero and comfortable, and I think they’ve succeeded with the Ember MIPS.

The design and shape of the helmet are flattering, as far as helmets go, the colourways on offer are feminine without being too girly and what’s more, Giro has maintained their integrity for developing strong, reliable and performance-driven headwear.

It’s not the most affordable, nor lightest helmet on the road cycling market, however. It’s marginally heavier than the Liv Rev, and yet, considerably more affordable than the Specialized S-Works Prevail.
