Safety first! The award winning Fornix BC Mips Jeremy Jones Edition helmet by POC is a lightweight, aramid reinforced and well-ventilated helmet with the special Jeremy Jones signature design. By applying Aramid strings and molding them together with the foam liner, it was possible to develop a lightweight helmet while maintaining structural stability and a high level of protection. The tensile strength of the aramid fiber is very high and when bonded to the helmet structure, it allows energy to be dispersed over the entire bridge, giving the helmet better energy absorption. The Fornix is a generously ventilated helmet and the size adjustment system makes it possible to customize the fit.
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.
