MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System): This system is based on a hard plastic shell placed inside the helmet. Fixed to the helmet with multi-directional attachments, the MIPS system can move in all directions inside the helmet. The aim is to let the helmet move freely on the head in the event of an oblique impact. By turning around the head, the helmet absorbs and dissipates the force of the impact, thus reducing the effect on the brain.

STACC Ventilation: The Superficial Temporal Artery Cooling Channel (STACC) ventilation system features a front air intake, an internal channel and an extractor at the back to cool your head without exposing your temples which are the most vulnerable area of the skull. Patent pending.


Hybrid Construction: A blend of 2 different constructions to optimise the positive aspects of each material.

The outer shell is made up of a resistant ABS injected shell on top of the head to help absorb shocks and a polycarbonate (PC) lower shell for lightness. It also has expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) on the inside.

EPS Construction: Expanded polystyrene (EPS) interior for great shock absorption and robustness. As it is close to the head, this layer needs to be as soft as possible while also ensuring maximum protection.
