MIPS: A new level of protection

What is MIPS?

MIPS stands for "Multi-directional Impact Protection System". Created through years of research, the combination of the brain's own protection and MIPS can provide better protection from angled impacts.

Mimicking the brain

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.

Low-friction layer

In a MIPS helmet, the shell and the liner are separated by a low-friction layer, allowing the helmet to slide relative to the head during an angled impact.

Angled impact

Conventional helmets are tested by being dropped vertically onto a flat surface. MIPS helmets are designed to deal with how some accidents may occur, with angled impacts to the head.
