Downhill, enduro, trail, XC. At Mips, we focus on safety for mountain bike helmets, allowing you to focus on all your singletrack dreams.
It happens. Your front wheel washes out. Your pedal hits a rock. Handlebar clips a tree. When you’re pushing your limits, trying to ride new lines, or digging deep to shave a few seconds off your time, there are risks. Sometimes taking chances is part of the fun.
There are many factors when choosing your perfect mountain bike helmet. Here are a few to consider:
Are you riding XC, trail, enduro or DH? Whatever MTB style you love most, there’s a Mips®-equipped helmet made just for you.
How serious are you about your riding? A dedicated XC racer may consider weight first. An enduro or trail rider is probably more interested in all-day comfort and durability.
Make sure the helmet meets Europe’s General Product Safety Regulations (GPSR) standards.
Do you ride primarily in warm weather? Cold? Rain? Different mountain bike helmets can make your experience more enjoyable depending on the elements you ride in most often.
Make sure the helmet is designed with a low-friction layer that’s intended to help reduce rotational force to the head during certain angled impacts.
Everyone has their own unique head shape and fit factors. It’s important to consider everything from sizing to retention systems and straps.
If you are into MTB cycling, and more specifically downhill or enduro, you may want to consider a full-face MTB helmet. A full-face helmet is designed to offer better protection than a conventional bike helmet when shredding down the slopes, aiming for the big jumps and berms. Nowadays, full-face MTB helmets are lighter and more ventilated than before.
