MIPs Equipped Bike Helmets

How Does a MIPS equipped Helmet Protect the Brain?

Surrounding the brain is a thin layer of cerebrospinal fluid that allows the brain to "float" inside the skull while protecting it from forceful impacts. MIPS helmets imitate this fluid-based type of protection by substituting cerebrospinal fluid with low-friction material that is sandwiched between the inner foam liner and the outer shell of the helmet.

By allowing the outer shell to move in respect to movement of the inner foam liner, MIPS technology significantly limits linear and rotational forces exacted by impacts that pass straight through the skull and affect the brain. Essentially, when you wear a MIPS helmet, your head is "floating" inside the helmet the way your brain is loosely cushioned by cerebrospinal fluid.
