MULTI-DIRECTIONAL IMPACT PROTECTION SYSTEM
MIPS ADDS MORE PROTECTION AGAINST ROTATIONAL MOTION
MIPS is a revolutionary technology that lets the helmet slide relative to the head, adding more protection against rotational motion to the brain caused by angled impacts. Because keeping you safe in every condition is our priority, Bollé launched a series of helmets equipped with MIPS technology.
MIPS ENABLES A RELATIVE MOVEMENT BETWEEN THE HELMET AND THE HEAD IN ANY DIRECTION.
= THE MORE RED THE MORE STRAIN
This simulation illustrates strain in the brain from a similar angled impact when the user is wearing a helmet without MIPS and a helmet with MIPS.
MAXIMUM VENTILATION WITH HIGH PROTECTION
A MIX OF ACTUAL AND VIRTUALLY DIFFERENT DENSITIES EFFECTIVELY MANAGES DIFFERENT KINDS OF IMPACTS
To create helmets that perform against all types of impacts, the details are key. High-density EPS ensures that high energy impacts are effectively absorbed. Low-density EPS, however, provides superior performance against less severe impacts. Bollé helmets with AViD liner technology use a combination of different EPS densities and/ or optimization of the ventilation channels to virtually decrease the density in the upper area. The result is a lighter, better-ventilated helmet with progressive shock absorption that will absorb a wider range of impacts*. (Available on the Trackdown & Instinct.) *compared to a standard EPS liner with uniform thickness.
Low Density Foam: Optimum absorption at medium impact energy, may compress completely in high energy impacts.
High Density Foam: Imcomplete compression at low impact energy, optimum absorption at high impact energy
Ventilation channels: virtually decrease density
