The Signal MIPS Helmet brings signature Smith style, cutting edge head protection and comfort to all your bike rides. MIPS protection is built-in to provide extra resistance to impacts should you take an unfortunate fall.
In order to maximise protection while simultaneously minimise weight, Smith uses a lightweight in-mould construction for the Signal MIPS Helmet. This sees an light and yet highly impact-absorbing foam core mated to a tough and durable hard-shell outer layer. In the event of a fall, the foam will dissipate crash energy while the shell maintains structural integrity. On top of this is the MIPS brain protection technology, a slip-plane design to lessen the effect of rotational forces upon the brain in a crash.
What is MIPS- Multi-directional Impact Protection System?
• MIPS is a Brain Protection System
• Rotational motion can cause brain injuries
• The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact
• MIPS adds protection
Measure the circumference of your head around the widest part of your head, typically 1-2cm above your ears.
