The Cartelle™ MIPS provides the essential trail performance and protection you need in an affordable package that doesn’t skimp on style. It drafts off the design language of our premium Montara™ MIPS helmet, and offers many of our key features. Its compact shape provides deep, confident coverage, and the Roc Loc® 5 fit system allows you to easily dial-in both fit tension and adjust vertical position with a single hand. The Cartelle MIPS is designed for goggle compatability, and the P.O.V Plus™ visor allows you to lift the visor and place goggles on the front of the helmet. The Coolmax padding has great wicking properties, and its extra plush to provide all-day comfort on the trail. The helmet was designed with MIPS, which redirects impact energy to provide more protection in certain impacts. What is MIPS? • MIPS is a Brain Protection System • Rotational motion can cause brain injuries • The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact • MIPS adds protection POV Plus Giro’s P.O.V. Plus visor features an adjustment mechanism that lets you move the visor up and down in indexed steps. These steps include three riding positions plus a high position for goggle storage above your brow. The design allows you to easily adjust your visor with one hand while riding. In-Mold Construction In-mold construction fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet’s impact absorbing foam liner. The fusion process allows Giro to sculpt better ventilation systems, so In-mold helmets can be lighter and cooler than traditional helmets. Roc Loc® 5 Fit System This groundbreaking fit system provides an entirely unique user experience with an unmatched level of comfort, stability, adjustability and weight savings. With Roc Loc 5, you can easily dial-in both fit tension and adjust vertical position with a single hand. Just twist the dial for a tighter feel on rough terrain, then back it off a notch and relax across the flats or a warm climb. Even with these remarkable features, Roc Loc 5 is still nearly 40% lighter than its popular predecessor, Roc Loc 4. Micro Dial: The heart of Roc Loc 5 is this ratcheting, micro-adjusting dial. A simple, two-finger twist of the Micro Dial opens or closes the retention system and each click is audible Three-Position Bracket: It’s never been easier to change vertical positions and fine-tune fit. Giro incorporated a three-position bracket that features 15-millimeters of up/down movement. Like the Micro Dial, this system can be adjusted without removing the helmet. Carefully-crafted ergonomic arms are shaped to be as comfortable as possible, yet work Dual Pods: These two panels are designed to firmly grasp the back of your head while comfortably cradling the occipital lobe Strap Baskets: With Roc Loc 5, your helmet straps are always right where you need them. Not to mention this strap basket brings a new level of comfort Women’s Series The Giro Women’s Series™ is a diverse collection of helmet styles, fits and prices tailored to the demands of female riders. While the level of detail and range of colors is unique within the Women’s Series helmets, they do not feature a unique “women’s fit.” That’s because Giro believe that there is no anatomic difference between women and men’s heads except for the average skull diameter measurement. And since Giro helmet sizes cover 98% of the human population, they believe the Women’s Series offers more options to women than any other brand. Giro Crash Replacement Scheme If you have an accident in any helmet it’s a good idea to replace it. Giro offer the peace of mind that if you have an accident wearing one of their helmets they will replace it at a reduced price. Find out more here.
