Mips Becomes Official Safety Partner of Gothenburg Horse Show
“With its history in equestrian and focus on safety, it is very gratifying and feels like a natural connection to have Mips as our Official Safety Partner,” said Tomas Torgersen, Show Director of Gothenburg Horse Show since 1997.
The Mips safety system is based on over 20 years of research and development together with the Royal Institute of Technology and Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm. To date, Mips has delivered over 20 million safety systems to more than 130 manufacturers of, among other categories, bike helmets, snow helmets, horse riding helmets, motorcycle helmets, and construction helmets.
“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Gothenburg Horse Show, an event that has a special place in Mips history,” said Max Strandwitz, CEO at Mips. “We know there are several equestrian head-related accidents daily, and that’s only in Sweden. The international equestrian community will have its eyes on Gothenburg Horse Show so it represents the ideal platform to communicate the Mips mission – raise head protection awareness and lead the world towards safer helmets.”
“Mips and the Gothenburg Horse Show share many common values,” stated Johan Nyth, Sales Director at Gothenburg Horse Show. “We are two organizations that stand for innovation and quality in everything we do.
