MIPS Technology

Multi-directional impact protection system

Many Dirt Bike Helmets implement this technology. So smith joins the party! MIPS  reduces the rotational forces to the brain in the case of an oblique impact. Smith helmets absorb direct impacts very efficiently! And when combined with MIPS, Smith helmets absorb oblique forces better by allowing a small rotation of the outer shell relative to the liner.

When you fall to the ground at an angle rotational forces are generated. MIPS technology creates a sliding layer between the outer shell and the head. This allows the helmet’s outer shell to slide relative to the head when hitting the ground. So the rotational force is decreased, reducing the potential to damage your brain. Especially relevant to Youth MTB Protective Gear! Kids tumble most often… got to keep them safe.
