MIPS® sets a new standard in helmet safety. Developed by brain surgeons and scientists to reduce rotational forces on the brain caused by angled impacts to the head.

Brain Protection System

The Invention

MIPS® imitates the brain’s way of protecting itself by giving the helmet its own low-friction layer between the outer shell and the head, to absorb much of the rotational violence created by an oblique blow. Very simple and very effective.
