Tester Colin Levitch reported on the development of the Rev Pro MIPS, including the CFD analysis that was used to optimize the shape and venting for airflow while also improving its aero performance.
“The vents are backed by deep channeling the length of the helmet, providing air that is sucked into the vents at the front a straight shot through the shell,” Levitch wrote. “Inside, you’ll find a MIPS liner integrated into the retention system and multi-density EPS foam. Lighter-density foam is utilized on the upper levels of the helmet to handle energy from moderate impacts, while the lower parts of the shell are made using higher-density foam designed to contend with more significant impacts at higher speeds.”
Levitch also appreciated the looks of the Rev Pro MIPS: “With so many helmets moving toward a smooth and snub nose profile, the wavey, almost jagged styling of the Rev Pro is distinctive. It still has a streamlined look but stands out among the crowd for a dynamite aesthetic.”
Summing up the Rev Pro’s performance during the test, Levitch wrote: “Giant’s flagship road helmet, the Rev Pro MIPS is one of the best options currently on the market.”
