TECHNOLOGY

MIPS is a revolutionary technology that lets the helmet slide relative to the head, adding more protection against rotational violence to the brain caused by angled impacts. To identify the new generation of helmets, look for the little yellow MIPS logo.

TESTMETHODS

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. Because when you fall, your head usually hits the ground at an angle, creating a rotational force that leads to strain in the brain. With the MIPS Low Friction Layer inside, the helmet can absorb more of that rotational violence, adding better protection than helmets not equipped with MIPS.
