Save Your Brain! Here at X-Ten we value your brain more than anything else in your kit. Let us talk you through helmet tech, your needs and which helmet may be best for you.
A couple of questions people ask in regards to helmets:
1. MIPS v Non-MIPS?
- Multi-directional Impact Protection System is a membrane built into the helmet to reduce the rotational force on the head and neck. As we slide when falling when skiing or boarding, this technology is cruicial.
2. In-moulded v 2-Piece?
- In-moulded is where the shell and liner are made together. These helmets are lighter and disperse the impact effectively. Less durable than 2-piece helmets.
- 2 Piece helmets are where the shell is made, the liners is made & they are put together. Heavier & disperse the impact less, however more durable than in-moulded.
