The Great Misconception
Accident statistics show that many injuries occur due to angled impact to the head. In standard tests, the helmet is dropped vertically onto a flat surface. The results are helpful for measuring precise vertical impacts but far inferior for measuring the more realistic scenario of an angled impact.
Brain Protection System
MIPS Brain Protection System features a low-friction layer that enables a relative movement of 10-15 mm between the head and the helmet in any direction at the brief moment of an angled impact, reducing the energy force transferred to the brain. This combined with our ABSOR foam system optimized throughout the interior shell produces un-rivaled protection. WHAT IS MIPS? The MIPS Brain Protection System is a helmet integrated, low-friction layer designed to reduce rotational motion transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the head.
How Does It Work?
In a helmet with the MIPS Brain Protection System, the shell and the liner are separated by a low friction layer.
When a helmet with the MIPS system is subjected to an angled impact, the low friction layer allows the helmet to slide relative to the head. This revolutionary system has been scientifically proven to reduce rotational motion by absorbing and redirecting the energy and force transferred to the brain on impact, reducing the risk of minor or severe brain injuries.
One-piece polypropylene (EPP) shell construction makes the Dynamic 9 Pro helmet the lightest weight in its class.
Coming standard in all Dynamic 9 Pro helmets,the interchangeable side and rear occipital fit pads are available in three thicknesses,providing 360-degree adjust-ability and a personalized fit.
