Never feel concerned again with MIPS. This technology is found in high quality helmets, such as Giro. And gives you the peace of mind to know that in an accident you are protected. MIPS stands for Multi-Directional Impact Protection System. In bicycle helmets it means that a low-friction layer has been installed in the helmet. This is usually around the contact points with your head. The MIPS low friction layer is designed to reduce the harmful impact of rotational forces. When you are involved in an accident. Rotational impact forces are one of the causes of traumatic head injury. So reducing this impact and the consequences is a high priority to cyclists. Especially those doing a lot of kilometres or riding at high speeds in situations where impacts happen.
Finding the right size helmet can be tricky, we recommend using an existing helmet you have to measure from, or using the manufacturers sizing guide to choose your size, otherwise if you are local to our Melbourne bike shop, come in store & try on our range of helmets.
