Protecting your head is the number one job of a helmet, designed to be lightweight, highly durable and can withstand heavy impact. The latest innovation in helmet design used across multiple brands is MIPS, Multi-directional Impact Protection System. This system adds an internal skull cap that can rotate, allowing the shell to move around your head during rotational impact. This feature reduces the damage to your brain if you experience a heavy collision, extremely useful for freestyle riders who impact the snow at a wide range of angles. MIPS can’t be seen from the outside of the helmet, but it is easy to identify through the yellow MIPS sticker on the side.
