The Mips Safety System; More Integrated Than Ever

Leading helmet manufacturers are trusting Mips due to seamless integration and their aim to exceed safety standards.

Stockholm, Sweden; April 10, 2024 – Mips, a global leader in helmet-based safety and experts in dangerous rotational motion, is expanding its solutions and integrations into more helmets and styles. Led by its recently announced innovative Virtual Test Lab (VTL) and new solutions like Mips® Integra Split, Mips® Air Node and Mips® Integra TX, over 150 helmet manufacturers (in categories like bike, snow, moto, equestrian etc.) around the world trust the Mips safety system to be added to their products.

The classic yellow Mips low friction layer that most people have seen in helmets for years is still there. But most new helmets with Mips technology today feature a system that is even more integrated and sometimes almost invisible when you look inside the helmet.

“We’re committed to making helmet-based safety more accessible to everyone,” said Mips CEO, Max Strandwitz. “By expanding our range of solutions and integrations into more helmet models and styles, we’re making it easier for riders and other helmet users to choose the helmet best fitted for their needs, taste in style, and fit. But for Mips, progress and innovation don’t stop there. We view industry standards as a baseline, not a finish line. We’re constantly pushing the boundaries of helmet safety through research and development, true to our mission: to lead the way to safer and more sustainable helmets.”

All Mips safety systems are engineered to meet the same criteria within redirection of rotational motion and are designed to provide safety beyond industry standards.

Mips provides a wide range of solutions to meet the differing needs of the many types of helmet users. Please see the different solutions listed below and you can see more from the whole range here;

Mips® Essential Core: Designed to help reduce rotational motion in oblique impacts through low friction. Simple, yet efficient. A perfect introduction to the Mips safety systems, it can be found in helmets used for bicycling, horse riding, motorcycle riding and skiing.

Mips® Evolve Core: 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.

Mips® Air Node: Fasteners are designed to release at oblique impacts to help redirect rotational motion. The Mips Air Node system provides omnidirectional movement with minimal changes to the original helmet. It is especially suitable for highly ventilated, lightweight helmets, as the system itself adds practically no extra weight or volume.

Mips® Elevate Core: Rotational movement for harness helmets in oblique impacts. Hard hats were initially developed to protect against falling objects and are now used for workplace safety throughout the construction industry and many other workplaces.

Mips® Integra Fuse: A premium solution for omnidirectional movement. The system is comfortable, and durable, and adds no stack height to the helmet. It can be found in helmets used for biking, skiing, motorsports and horse riding.

Mips® Integra Split: The design of the Mips Integra Split provides seamless integration, a comfortable fit and gives designers freedom to incorporate greater ventilation in the helmet. The system provides omnidirectional movement for helmets with ample EPS coverage.

Mips® Integra TX: An invisible solution that provides omnidirectional movement. Mips Integra TX is useful in moto, equestrian, and snow helmets, where comfort is vital. The system is integrated in the comfort padding and is attached to the helmet with hook-and-loop fabric or existing attachment points inside the helmet.

As more helmets utilize the Mips safety systems, consumers demand progressively more integrated versions of the systems. Mips aim is to minimize the presence and visibility of the safety system without compromising the level of redirection of dangerous rotational motion to the head for any of its products. That means making Mips technology something that the user never has to manage or sometimes even notice.
