Combine this with the added protection of MIPS technology and you’ve got pretty impressive helmet that doesn’t cost a fortune.Using their In-Mold construction process, Giro fuses a tough polycarbonate shell to impact-absorbing EPS foam while inside the mold, creating a lightweight yet strong helmet with extensive ventilation and minimal bulk.

Womens Road Bike Giro Synthe MIPS Helmet. One of the major characteristics setting the Synthe MIPS apart from other similar models is the safety of MIPS; MIPS, or Multi Directional Impact Protection System, refers to the Swedish technology added to the helmet in the form of a thin inner layer that rotates slightly upon impact to absorb the brain-damaging rotational energy created in certain crashes. With less rotation comes less likelihood of a brain injury when you take a spill. Impact protection is usually a feature of helmets you’d rather not put to the test, however, and it’s far from the only one that’s important.

Womens Road Bike Kali Protectives Phenom Helmet. Occupying the upper echelon of Kali helmets, the Phenom was designed with all of the aerodynamic and weight considerations that characterize helmets at this level. However, Kali also had the ambitious goal of constructing the Phenom out of softer, lower density foam than what is generally used in high-end road helmets; this isn’t commonly done due to weight constraints, but the engineers at Kali wanted to avoid sacrificing riders’ protection in the name of weight, so they answered the problem by developing a proprietary shell design called Supervent. Not just included to enhance ventilation, Supervent structuring ensures the vents on the helmet maintain their integrity in the event of a crash, allowing Kali to create a breathable, vented helmet that retains ample cushioning from EPA foam.
