* What is MIPS technology?
MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System. Called a slip plane, the interior layer, allows for 10-15 mm of rotational movement between the head and the helmet in the critical 10-15 milliseconds after an oblique impact. This reduces the rotational forces exerted on the brain during impact and, presumably, reduces brain injury relative to the same helmet without MIPS.
It turns out the brain is great at handling linear impacts, a straight shot to the skull, but very bad at handling oblique impacts which create rotational strain. It’s why an uppercut knocks a boxer out, but a direct punch to the face just breaks a nose. Most accidents skiing, kayaking or cycling induce rotational forces on the brain, not linear. Helmets and test standards were designed to deal with linear impact.
