Tour de France yellow jersey Rohan Dennis of BMC started stage 2 in Utrecht, Holland in a new Giro Synthe with MIPS, which is a movable layer inside the helmet that proponents say can reduce brain injury. Giro does not have a Synthe with MIPS in its current line, and isn't yet commenting about this helmet.
Giro sponsors three teams in the Tour de France — BMC, Katusha and IAM Cycling — and members of each team were wearing the new helmet with the telltale little yellow MIPS sticker on stage two.
Scott, Lazer and POC also have helmets with MIPS liners, as does Bell, sister company to Giro.
Giro itself has seven MIPS helmets, with the Savant and the women's Sonnet being the only two road helmets in that collection.
