Giro MIPS

Thursday 12th February 2015

Giro MIPS CAN PROVIDE MORE PROTECTION IN CERTAIN IMPACTS

Every Giro helmet is equipped with a liner that deforms on impact and reduces the transfer of energy to the brain. Think of it like a type of second skull. Now a new helmet technology called the Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is taking the redirection of energy a step further. The goal? To further reduce rotational forces.

There are three main components to a MIPS-equipped helmet: the interior foam liner, the Low Friction Liner and an elastomeric attachment system between them. In an impact, the elastomeric attachment system stretches to allow the interior foam liner to rotate independently around your head. Although the system only moves a few millimeters we believe that helmets equipped with this technology can reduce the amount of rotational force that may be transferred to your brain in certain impacts.
