POC Team athlete Jeremy Jones Signature Edition

The Fornix Backcountry MIPS J. Jones signature helmet is a lightweight, aramid reinforced and well-ventilated helmet, based on the award-winning Fornix. The helmet is equipped with the patented MIPS system to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in case of an oblique impact.

The tensile strength of the aramid fiber is very high, and when bonded to the helmet structure, it allows energy to be dispersed over the entire bridge, giving the helmet better energy absorption.

The Fornix is generously ventilated and the size adjustment system makes it possible to customize the fit of the helmet to make sure it stays safe and comfortable in place. Picture disclaimer - Picture shows Jeremy Jones signature Editions, goggles and eyewear are not included.

MIPS Developed in cooperation with Royal Institute of Technology and Karolinska Institute, Sweden.  

The new MIPS technology mimics one of the safety systems which already exist in the human head. 

When the head is subjected to an oblique impact, the brain can slide along a membrane on the inner 

surface of the skull, which reduces the forces transmitted to the brain. This protective feature has, 

with the MIPS technology, been incorporated into the helmet. In a helmet equipped with MIPS technology,

the shell and the liner are separated by a low friction layer. When subjected to an oblique impact, the 

low friction layer allows a small rotation of the shell relative to the liner. Experimental tests shows

a significant reduction of the forces to the brain. 

Accident statistics show that the most common accident occurs in an oblique impact to the head,

resulting in a rotation of the head andbrain.

The brain is more sensitive to oblique impacts than radial impacts. However, according to the helmet test 

regulations, the helmets are dropped vertically onto the impact surface, resulting in a radial force to the

head. This is why helmets today have good protective properties for vertical impacts while the protection

is not optimized for oblique impacts. MIPS AB has therefore developed MIPS technology to provide 

substantially increased protection  against oblique impacts.
