The Giro Tyrant helmet has been designed and developed with progressive riders in mind and naturally hinges more around sessioning than racing. As such, form follows function — the Giro Tyrant doubling up as both a stylish and protective lid.
According to Dain Zaffke, Giro Marketing Director, the Tyrant is made for riders who are more likely to be wearing jeans than a number but are still pushing boundaries with their riding.
Despite the casual design cues the Giro Tyrant is a pretty sophisticated helmet in terms of all-round protection. Not only does it feature a full-cut design which brings added levels of head coverage, it also benefits from the latest in multi-directional impact protection systems — MIPS Spherical.
Developed by Giro and MIPS, this new design mimics a ball-and-socket joint, providing several millimetres of rotational movement thanks to two layers of EPS foam. This new system has also significantly improved ventilation thanks to deeper air channels inside the helmet.
Over and above the enhanced protection levels, the Tyrant is packed with all the details you would expect from Giro. A new Roc Loc Air DH adjustable fit system, quick-dry padding, customisable cheek pads, 14 ventilation slats with internal channelling and an adjustable visor round off an impressive package.
The Giro Tyrant can be had in three sizes: small 20”–21.75” / 51–55cm, medium 21.75”–23.25” / 55–59cm and large 23.25”–24.75” / 59–63cm.
