Fox Mainframe MIPS Helmet
|* To check in store availability:
|Select variant below then view stock
The MAINFRAME MIPS MTB bike helmet by FOX is equipped with both the proven MIPS impact protection and EPS foam to provide improved impact protection in the event of an accident. In addition, the MTB helmet offers a slightly extended coverage area, which can provide extra protection.
The mountain bike helmet’s moisture-wicking and removable inner lining also creates a comfortable feeling and the 360-degree adjustment system ensures a perfect fit.
• MTB helmet with extended coverage area and MIPS impact protection
• Optimum ventilation with channelized, injected moulded EPS for efficient cooling
• Removable, washable and moisture-wicking inner lining
• 360 degree adjustment system for a perfect fit
• Visor firmly attached to the helmet
• Adjustable strap system
• Weight: approx. 390 g (size M)
This foam is used for helmets to permit high shock absorption and to guarantee a low weight.
A layer between the helmet and the head imitates the protective fluids of the brain by rotating against the direction of external forces. This reduces the forces acting on it.
WHAT IS MIPS?
MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is a slip-plane system within the helmet. It is designed to rotate inside the helmet and thus slow down or reduce the impact energy acting on the brain, which helps reduce head injuries caused by rotational impacts.
WHY IS MIPS IMPORTANT?
When a head rotates quickly and comes to a sudden stop, the rotational acceleration may cause the brain tissue to experience high levels of strain. This stretching of the tissue caused by these motions may result in various types of brain injury. MIPS is designed with the intent to address rotational acceleration from impact.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
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.
