What Is The MIPS System In A Helmet?

The introduction of MIPS in recent years is a technological breakthrough which increases rider protection.MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) imitates the brains protective fluid. The secret behind MIPS unique patent comes from the human brain.

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 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!
