Speed. Efficiency. The rush of the road beneath your wheels. Mips focuses on safety for helmets, so you can focus on race days, training days, or just the pure the freedom and fun of riding on the road.
We don’t like to think about it, but sometimes it happens. You misjudge a corner. Hit a wet spot on the road. Overlap wheels in the group. Crashes can happen, so make the smart move and ride with a Mips® safety system.
There are many factors when choosing your perfect road bike helmet. Here are a few to consider:
Are you a racer or a fitness rider? Commuting to work or climbing mountains? Whatever type of road riding you love most, there’s a Mips®-equipped helmet made just for you.
How serious are you about your riding? A dedicated road racer may consider weight first. A triathlete may be more interested in aerodynamics. And for long-distance sportive riders, comfort is key.
Make sure the helmet meets the current safety standards in your country. Some common ones include Europe’s General Product Safety Regulations (GPSR) and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in the U.S.
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.
From advanced fit systems to eyewear integration and mounts for a light or camera, road bike helmets offer many different options to maximize your riding experience.
