Helmet Pod for the Aerohead MIPS (not Ultimate)
Quote | Reply
Hi folk,

Any suggestions how I can get my hands on a helmet pod for a Giro Aerohead MIPS? I see that the ultimate comes with one, but being a cheapskate I just got the plain old Giro Aerohead MIPS.

Any advice appreciated (other than being less of a cheapskate)...

Cheers.

I think I read in the aerohead thread that it was late October or something like that when they will be available. Also replacement lenses should be available in October as well.

I'll go ahead and dig this up. So, initial information was October for helmet pod and replacement shields to be available. It's now June 2017, so I'm wondering if anyone had updates on this front.

I called them last week and was able to get one (size medium). My card was charged but haven't received it yet. It did seem they have limited stock available as they took a while to check inventory for me. A buddy of mine called shortly after me and was told they were on backorder until end of July.

It's not just the case, the helmets are getting difficult to source as well (at least a in particular colors). The all black one has been backordered for at least a month but I was told they were getting a shipment May 30.

Best bet is to just call giro and ask.

get comfortable being uncomfortable

Thanks for info. I was able to place an order for a clear shield, but the pods are indeed on backorder.

I've been using one of the bags that was given out at the 70.3 races a couple years back. It's a somewhat padded soft bag that fits the aerohead pretty well. Not a had case, but works ok. Just a thought if you have one lying around.

Anyone find a good source for this yet? It's Jan 2018, and I'm not finding Aerohead pods or bags very easily. Finding Giro helmet cases on EBay, but no indication if they fit the Aerohead...

Thanks for any link you might have to Aerohead specific pods, cases or bags. :)

Did after I posted, then found it on that weber site for less. Thank you for replying. Was surprised it was so hard to find. I guess it's a pretty niche helmet so nobody stocks things like this online or otherwise in general.
