MIPS

People love to be active. Let’s keep it that way…

There are now many styles of helmets to choose from, old and new, but only the new generation of

helmets are equipped with the Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS). MIPS is a revolutionary

technology, adding more protection. To identify the new generation of helmets, look for the little yellow

MIPS logo.

How you fall if you fall

Most helmets are tested only by dropping them vertically onto a flat surface. MIPS technology is the hard earned

result of over 19 years of studies and testing by some of the world’s leading researchers and brain

surgeons, based on a different principle – reality. Because in reality when you fall, your head usually hits

the ground at an angle, creating a rotational force that leads to strain in the brain. With MIPS, the helmet

can absorbs more of that rotational force, adding better protection than helmets not equipped with MIPS.

Mimicking the brain

The secret behind MIPS’, patented technology derives from the human brain. The brain is surrounded by

a low-friction cushion of cerebrospinal fluid that protects it by allowing it to slide slightly on impact. MIPS

Imitates the brain’s way of protecting itself by giving the helmet its own low-friction layer between the outer

Shell and the liner, which also slides to absorb a portion of the energy created by an angled blow to the

head. This can reduces the rotational force otherwise transmitted to your brain. The combination of the

brain’s own protection and MIPS therefore provides more protection than a helmet without MIPS technology.

Very simple and very effective. MIPS mirrors the brain’s own intelligent protection system and provides an additional

element to helmet safety.

Land on your feet, even when you don’t

The MIPS patented technology was developed by some of the world’s leading researchers in biomechanics

and neuroscience at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the Karolinska Institute in Sweden. You can

see for yourself the difference in an angled impact between helmets with and without MIPS. With exactly

the same speed and angle, the results are very different. The pictures speak for themselves – the more

red areas, the more strain in the brain. Gain peace of mind by helping to protect your brain with a new

standard of technology currently on the market, MIPS.

When it comes to safety, a helmet with MIPS is the obvious choice.
