This helmet is equipped with MIPS
– a unique
technology developed to reduce brain injuries.
Conventional helmets are tested by dropping
them vertically onto a flat surface. MIPS
constructed to deal with how most accidents
occur, with angled impacts to the head. MIPS
sets a new standard in helmet safety.
Deformation of the Brain
from an Angled Impact
imitates the brain’s way of
protecting itself by giving the helmet its
own low-friction layer between the outer
shell and the head, to absorb much of the
rotational violence created by an angled
blow. Very simple and very effective.
