Giro wins ISPO GOLD Award with Stellar MIPS and Conform Fit Technology



Stellar MIPS, A Women’s Adaptive Fit Helmet Utilizing Two-Piece Outer Shell to Create Low-Profile and Bespoke Fit

Santa Cruz, CA (January 25, 2016) — Giro sets the bar in comfort and customization with Conform Fit Technology in the Stellar MIPS women’s helmet. Conform Fit Technology is a two-piece outer shell that hugs the head with a turn of a dial providing a bespoke fit.

Aline Bock, professional freeride snowboarder and ISPO AWARD jury member points out: “Giro managed to optimize the ski helmet per se with the Stellar and its ingenious adjustment system.”

Giro Sr. Director of R&D, Rob Wesson: “The Stellar’s two-piece shell provides up to six centimeters of adjustment for a truly custom fit and the lowest profile that we’ve ever created.”

The Stellar MIPS comes fully loaded with premium performance and safety features including Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS), Adjustable Venting, an integrated GoPro® POV camera mount, and Fidlock® Magnetic buckle closure allowing riders to stay focused on the pursuit of powder. The Stellar MIPS will be available August 2016 for MSRP $250 / €279,95.
