The following designs enables the full 10-15mm of rotational movement in the crucial 3-10 milliseconds following angled head impact, redirecting damaging rotational motion. The choice of system comes down to how the helmet is designed and engineered.
The MIPS:F2 is a solution targeted for application in helmets within the leaf segment. It is an excellent solution for large and/or heavier helmets. The system is mounted between the EPP foam liner and exterior shell and provides the ability for the EPP liner to slide relative to the outer shell of the helmet. This 10 – 15 mm of relative motion is referred to as the MIPS Movement and provides added protection against rotational motion to the brain caused by angled impacts to the head.
The MIPS:E2 solution is a soft,
cap-like insert that acts as a full-headed low-friction layer
for full-face cycling, motocross, and street sport helmets.
The MIPS:E2 liner is made up of two multi-directional, stretch fabric layers sewn together around a thin, plastic foil. When inserted between the comfort padding of the helmet and the outer EPS shell, the Liner provides broad coverage from rotational impacts without sacrificing comfort or sweat absorption.
