The Source MIPS helmet combines technological advancement and superior safety with the design of a modern trail helmet. Aggressive ventilation through a total of 17 vents supported by internal channels can keep your head at the right operating temperature even in the middle of summer. A comfortable fit on the head is ensured by the Roc Loc 5 clamping system, which incorporates a MIPS liner. The visor is adjustable, secured with screws. Resistance to everyday scratches is guaranteed by the polycarbonate that covers the shell even from below. Extended back protection is already a matter of course.
MIPS ( Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) provides increased protection against rotational forces on the head. More at www.MIPSprilby.cz

ADVANCES IN CYCLING HELMET DEVELOPMENT
All Giro helmets are designed to absorb as much energy as possible on impact and meet the current European standard: EN 1078. The new MIPS technology aims to eliminate the rotational forces that act on the head in the event of a crash. When hit at any angle, the MIPS system allows the EPS shell of the helmet to rotate independently around the rider's head. Although this movement is only on the order of a few millimeters, we believe that MIPS technology significantly reduces the amount of rotational force that could otherwise be transmitted to the brain.
WHAT IS MIPS (Multidirectional Impact Protection System) and how does it work?
MIPS is a slippery liner between the EPS shell (helmet body) and the inner liners. In the event of an angled impact (for example, if you catch your head on a branch), the EPS shell of the helmet will roll a few millimeters over the MIPS layer, protecting your head and brain from a violent rotational jerk.
