Mips is a Multi-Directional Impact Protection System used in bike helmets. It’s a low-friction layer that sits between the padding and EPS foam liner. On impact, the layer moves slightly in all directions to redirect the forces away from your head. Lessening your chance of getting a concussion, skull fraction, or other serious brain trauma.
Traditional helmets protect you from linear impacts, which are direct hits to the head. But most bike accidents involve oblique impacts. That’s when you you fall or get hit at an angle. Mips protects you from both types! So you’re covered from just about anything on the roads and trails.
The technology is used in over 100 helmet brands. For cycling, skiing, snowboarding, horseback riding, and more. It’s always being tested to make it even better and safer for your sports and activities. Want to know how to spot Mips? Just look for the bright yellow dots with the name inside!
