As we transition to more sustainable materials and production techniques, maintaining the highest standards of safety is a challenge that we take very seriously. Our goal is to be a leader in the helmet safety industry, setting new standards for others to follow.
Phased out three high-emission products from Mips' product range.
Delivered eleven customer projects with post-industrial recycled plastic. The goal for 2022 was three such customer projects.
Post-industrial recycled plastic refers to plastic waste generated during the manufacturing process, which is usually collected and recycled within the same process. Recycling post-industrial plastic reduces waste, conserves natural resources, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and supports a circular economy. It can also provide economic benefits by creating jobs and reducing raw material costs.
We utilize cutting-edge computer science to virtually replicate and predict helmet testing results and real-life impacts in less time than physical testing. As pioneers in virtual testing with 25+ years of experience, we lead the way in simulating linear and rotational motion in helmets.
Virtual testing helps to reduce Mips’ climate impact compared to physical testing alone as fewer physical prototypes will be required, thereby reducing waste in the production process
We have put a significant effort into our product identity, considering everything to build a coherent look of high quality – suitable for a leader and worthy of our partner brands. How our safety systems look and feel influences not only how people perceive our brand but also the brands of our partners. This is why the Mips product and brand identity is designed to align and enhance the users’ helmet brand experience.
It’s recommended to replace a bike helmet every 3-5 years, depending on usage and wear and tear. However, if the helmet has been involved in a crash, it should be replaced immediately, as the impact could have compromised its effectiveness in protecting your head.
Helmets are considered a safety item, which can make it challenging to determine the appropriate recycling methods. Regulations for recycling various materials may vary depending on the country or region in which you reside. Nevertheless, the fundamentals remain constant: attempt to remove as many helmet components as feasible for separation.
