Fly Racing - 2016 F2 Carbon MIPS Andrew Short Replica Helmet
The F2 Carbon in it's standard form is as close to a factory race bike as a helmet can get. With the addition of the MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System), the F2 Carbon helmet from Fly is stepping ahead of the competition. Used by top pros such as Trey Canard, Andrew Short, Justin Brayton, Weston Peick, this helmet is out-of-the-box and on-to-the-racetrack ready.
What is MIPS?
MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, which is a leading slip-plane technology inside the helmet designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain impacts
Why it's Important?
When a head rotates quickly and comes to a sudden stop, the rotational acceleration can cause the brain tissue to experience high levels of strain. The stretching of the tissue that can be caused by these motions can result in various types of brain injury. We believe that helmets equipped with MIPS technology can provide an additional measure of protection in certain impacts.
How it works:
MIPS uses a slip-plane system that moves inside the helmet, mimicking the brain’s own protection system. This layer is designed to rotate inside the helmet with the intent to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head. Science tells us that if we can reduce the strains associated with rotational acceleration, we might reduce the risk and severity of brain injury.
