Low friction refined

A low-friction layer designed to help redirect rotational movement in angled impacts.

Traditional helmets are designed and tested for straight impacts, but most impacts are angled, which can cause rotational motion to the head.

The rotational motion can
cause brain injuries.

The Low Friction Layer is intended to help reduce the rotational motion to the head in certain angled impacts.

How it works:

The Mips® Evolve Core system is based on the attachment of a low-friction layer to the inner surface of the helmet’s energy-absorbing liner. This layer is permitted to move in all directions to help divert rotational motion from the head in certain angled impacts. The comfort padding is fixed to the interior of the low-friction layer.

Where it’s used:

Mips® Evolve Core is a system designed for use in a wide variety of helmets intended for activities such as skiing, horse riding, bicycling and motor sports. With its refined fit and light construction, Mips® Evolve Core has become our most popular helmet safety system.

Why Mips® Evolve Core

When a helmet is impacted at an angle, it can cause the head to rotate suddenly and violently. This is a common source of concussions and brain injury.

The Mips® Evolve Core is a system designed to provide movement inside the helmet to help reduce rotational motion to the head in certain angled impacts, thereby lowering the risk of such injuries. The customizable solution makes it a perfect fit for a wide variety of helmets.

  • Omnidirectional movement designed to provide added safety in many impacts.

  • Comfortable fit.

  • Customizable for many different helmets.

  • Tailormade for every helmet and size.

The principle of the safety system

The Mips® safety system is designed to provide added safety for helmets in many accidents. For certain impacts, the Mips system can reduce harmful forces that might otherwise be transferred to the user’s head.
