MIPS  Size Adjustment Active Ventilation Goggle Clip Light Shell


The Pursuit MIPS is an ultra-lightweight ski helmet designed to keep all-mountain skiers comfortable and safe. MIPS technology helps minimize brain injuries in connection with angled impacts and rotational violence. 

Featuring In-Mould Light Shell technology and Pro Fit, the Pursuit MIPS is lighter weight and provides a more forgiving fit without compromising safety. Active Ventilation allows vents to be opened and closed, for increased comfort and temperature regulation. Removable ear pads and velvet lining, and quick-dial sizing adjustment allow skiers to customize their fit for even greater comfort.

Features:

  • Shell External: E.P.S
  • Shell Finish: Matt
  • Padding: Removable and washable
  • Ventilation: 6 air vents - active - 2 in back 
  • Hear flaps: Removable
  • Chinguard: No
  • Certification: CE-EN1077 - ASTM2040
  • Weight: 550 g
     

 

 

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 showsa 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 and brain. 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.
