The MIPS technology is meant to provide some protection against rotational injuries, although it seems more theoretical than science driven/proven so far. That's not to say it isn't beneficial, and I'd rather have it than not have it.
Is MIPS really all it's made out to be?
Was gonna say I just paid around £80 for this a few weeks ago from Wiggle - then noticed it's the non MIPS versions.
I really wanted to like this helmet, but it's nothing like the Synthe. I have a well endowed head and this helmet makes me look like a massive mushroom, whereas the synthe is a lot more slender, and more comfortable. The synthe is far too expensive so I settled on a Kask Mojito instead.
Not quite - the non-MIPS Cinder does have an RRP of £99.99, the MIPS £124.99. But yes, like Dekard97 says, the MIPS version is probably the better deal as you can get it for £67.50 at Merlin: https://www.merlincycles.com/giro-cinder-mips-road-bike-helmet-special-offer-110233.html
