LS2’s popular Subverter motocross helmet has been updated for 2020 – and it now comes with Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) technology as standard.
If you’ve not heard of MIPS before, it works to help prevent rotational brain injury, which can be caused by movement between the brain and skull when the head suffers an impact.
In essence, MIPS is a low friction layer that sits between the helmet’s EPS liner and fabric lining, which allows a rider’s head to move 10-15mm relative to the helmet in any direction.
It works to redirect energy, which would otherwise be transferred to the brain, and subsequently reduces the risk of damage to brain tissue due to rotational motion. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
