The new design and features make this helmet extra protective! 2-piece shell and integrated fit system create and adaptive fit, including the Comfort Fit Technology that forms to every rider’s head. Premium performance and functional features like MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) Technology, Adjustable Venting, an integrated GoPro® camera mount, and Fidlock® Magnetic buckle closure complete the design. Look at all these features! We are sure, this helmet will provide the best protection for beginners as well as experienced hard-core riders. The stack ventilation and thermostat control adjustable venting will keep everyone’s head cool and dry for long lasting snow-fun.
MIPS is a safety system for all kind of helmets and stands for Multi Directional Impact Protection System. The focus of this technology is to secure the head from beats with an obliquely angle of incidence. Classic helmets protect your head mostly from static impacts, which collide your head in a 90 degree angle. That sounds good on a paper, but in reality most of the beats hit your head in a different angle. That´s why the MIPS technology was developed. This system makes it possible to absorb static impacts as well as impacts which hit your head in a different angle.
How does Mips work?
The classic example for the MIPS-System is the human brain. To be prepared for impacts with an oblique angle of incidence, our brain is swimming in brain water with low friction. But this function of our brain can´t secure us from impacts with high speed. This is where the MIPS technology comes into play: An additional shift with low friction between the helmet and your head imitates and fortifies the function of your brain. When it comes to an impact with an obliquely angle of incidence the helmet bowl glides over the additional shift with low friction, to minimize the rotation loads.
