MIPS Technology

So why is this big news? What’s MIPS Technology? The MIPS Brain Protection System is a helmet-integrated, low-friction layer. Moreover, it’s designed to reduce rotational motion transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the head. This tech was only available in the top-shelf dirt bike gear models until now. Clearly, Thor MX is bridging this gap with this Sector Bomber MIPS Helmet. In short- it sounds like a big deal because it is!
