Our founders have spent decades studying the relationship between brain injuries and helmet safety. This deep knowledge and unrivalled experience are behind the latest Mips helmet technologies for safer helmets.
The Mips system is designed to provide added safety for helmets in many accidents. For certain impacts, the Mips system can reduce harmful rotational motion that might otherwise be transferred to the user’s head.
The Mips system is used in many helmet types and by 100+ brands.
Should you have an accident and hit your head, the Mips system in your helmet is designed to help reduce the rotational motion of certain impacts that may otherwise be transferred to your head.
Rotational motion is a common cause of concussions and more severe brain injury in oblique hits to the head. The Mips system consists of a low friction layer that is mounted inside the helmet. In a crash, the low friction layer is designed to move slightly inside the helmet to help redirect forces away from the head. This is intended to help reduce the risk of brain injury.
The Mips system is for everyone that uses a helmet. Whether you are riding on two wheels, on the slopes or working in construction, the Mips system can provide added safety to your helmet.
Mips’ ambition is to exist in every sport, profession, or activity where Mips can make a difference. The Mips system is available in nine of the ten major bike and snow helmet brands, and is also in motorcycle, equestrian, ice hockey, climbing, and children’s helmets, as well as LEAF and construction helmets.
There are helmets equipped with Mips systems across several price points. The price of the helmet is set by the helmet company. You can today buy a helmet equipped with a Mips system from most of the largest helmet brands.
Look for the yellow dot on the back of the helmet. On many helmets, you can see an extra layer inside of it. On other helmets, the layer is integrated in the comfort padding and therefore may not be as visible. The product packaging for the helmet should confirm the inclusion of a Mips system.
Helmets play a vital role in head injury prevention during outdoor sports and industrial work, evolving with technology for enhanced protection; let’s explore their significance and innovations.
