Features of the Giro Essence womens helmet....
CONSTRUCTION- Giro's In-mold shell construction fuses the polycarbonate outer shell with the helmets impact absorbing foam liner for extra durability without excess weight.
VISOR LENS- The large lens offers UV protection, has an anti fog coating, and a 19-42% Variable Light Transmission tint that works well in both bright light and low light conditions. Glare is reduced from the mirror outer layer. The unique visor lens is attached at two pivot points. One on each side of the helmet so you can lift the lens out of the way anytime easily. The lens gives you one of the largest field of visions ever. There is no goggle frame to obstruct your view and you can see clearly from side to side. The lens is replaceable if you were to damage it.
MIPS It stands for Multi-Directional Impact Protection System. There are three main components to a MIPS equipped helmet: the interior foam liner, the low friction liner and an elastomeric attachment system between them. If you have an angled impact, the elastomeric attachment system stretches to allow the foam liner to rotate independently around your head. This reduces rotational forces for better protection.
ADJUSTABLE VENTING: 13 vents, 6 which are adjustable, allows you to regulate the amount of air into the helmet to your comfort level.
CHIN STRAP- Adjustable and padded with a snap clip.
SAFETY- Conforms to all ASTM F2040 and CE prEN1077 approved standards.
EAR PADS- The ear pads are removable and have donut cut outs on the inside to accept Giro's audio Chips speaker systems.
CARRY BAG- Includes a soft carry bag to protect your helmet and goggle while transporting.

Our comments; The Essence is the next evolution step in ski and snowboard helmets. Two things we really like, #1- the LARGE field of vision. Side to side vision is great. #2- Many people have a hard time getting a goggle to fit comfortably. The visor doesn't sit on your face. Instead it just a lens in front of your eyes. It feels strange at first but you get accustom to it very quickly.
