What Is The MIPS System In A Helmet?



MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System)

The introduction of MIPS in recent years is a technological breakthrough which increases rider protection! MIPS imitates the brains protective fluid. The secret behind MIPS unique patent comes from the human brain!

The MIPS system required 20 years of research and endless testing! Hans von Holst is a Swedish neurosurgeon and professor emeritus who has dedicated his professional life to studying head injuries. Together with Peter Halldin, a researcher at the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology, they developed ground-breaking technology in the way helmets were designed and manufactured that would prove to significantly improve brain protection.

"Protect Your Brain - You Only Have One!" - MIPS

The brain is surrounded by a low-friction cushion of cerebrospinal fluid. MIPS gives the helmet its own low-friction layer between the EPS and comfort liner, to absorb much of the energy created by an angled blow to the head. The combination of the brains own protection and MIPS ensures maximum protection that's simple and effective.

Not all helmets feature a MIPS liner so do your research before buying as any helmet, no matter what your budget is will protect you better with this technology!
