The MIPS Brain Protection System (BPS) is designed to add protection against rotational motion transferred to the brain. Rotational motion affects the brain and increases the risk for minor and severe brain injuries. When implemented in a helmet, the MIPS BPS can reduce rotational motion by redirecting energies and forces otherwise transferred to the brain.
The X-Air Peaked Helmet features:
Low profile lightweight injection moulded ABS shell.
Highly ventilated airflow system.
Durable synthetic suede finish.
Removable crown comfort padding in hi-tech microfibre, heat-formed Polyester/nylon with mesh panel inserts.
Four-point heat-formed synthetic suede harness & lining with rear lacing adjustment.
Your helmet standards logo can be located inside the helmet on the crown liner, or under padding on EPS.
This helmet conforms to the following safety standards:
British PAS 015 2011
VG1 01.040 2014-12
British Kitemarked to PAS015 2011

WHAT IS THE MIPS SYSTEM IN A HELMET?
MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System)
The introduction of MIPS in recent years is a technological breakthrough which increases rider protection! MIPS imitates the brains protective fluid. The secret behind MIPS unique patent comes from the human brain!
The MIPS system required 20 years of research and endless testing! Hans von Holst is a Swedish neurosurgeon and professor emeritus who has dedicated his professional life to studying head injuries. Together with Peter Halldin, a researcher at the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology, they developed ground-breaking technology in the way helmets were designed and manufactured that would prove to significantly improve brain protection.
"Protect Your Brain - You Only Have One!" - MIPS
The brain is surrounded by a low-friction cushion of cerebrospinal fluid. MIPS gives the helmet its own low-friction layer between the EPS and comfort liner, to absorb much of the energy created by an angled blow to the head. The combination of the brains own protection and MIPS ensures maximum protection that's simple and effective.
Not all helmets feature a MIPS liner so do your research before buying as any helmet, no matter what your budget is will protect you better with this technology!
