Our lightest security system yet
Safety hid in plain sight
Air Node is a super light and slim system that has been disguised as padding and is not noticeable until it is needed.
Mips Air is a security system that reduces the rotational forces that would otherwise be transmitted to the brain during impact or a crash while being designed to be as light as possible. The technology in Mips Air has been built into the helmet’s padding and allows it to move 10-15 mm in relation to the energy-absorbing layer. This relative movement can occur in any direction, thanks to a low-friction treated polycarbonate frame that is kept in place by specially designed fasteners. By integrating the system into the padding, it is as light as possible and therefore provides a very limited increase in the weight of the helmet. The system is also specifically designed to fit each individual helmet model and size, in a way that makes it almost invisible.
Washing and replacement instructions for Mips® Air Node system
Proper care and installation of the Mips® Air Node system is essential for the helmet and the Mips Air Node system to work as intended. The Mips Air Node system is held in place with a number of hook and loop connecting points called Nodes. Figure (B) Front of the helmet (A)
Removing the Mips® Air Node system, gently pull it out of the helmet. Using too much force may cause the connection point in the helmet to break.
When installing the Mips ® Air Node system, make sure you replace it with the correct model and size. Position the system correctly in the helmet with the front of padding in the front of the helmet Fig( A).
Connect each Node firmly by pressing it to its counterpart in the helmet Fig (C). Repeat on each Node and make sure the hook and loop fabric attach to each counterpart.
The Mips ® Air Node system may be cleaned by carefully rinsing by hand in lukewarm water and air drying at room temperature.
