Comfortable! Not long after you have left for your bike training, you no longer have the idea that you are wearing a helmet. The helmet offers a lot of safety with both Koroyd and MIPS. Adjustment is simple and together with the filling this ensures a great fit.
If you drive further and faster, you want a helmet that not only offers a high degree of protection, but also a cooling air flow. To find the perfect balance between these two requirements, the Ignite MIPS Road Helm is equipped with an aerodynamically efficient Aerocore ™ construction, a system that maximizes the air cooling of the head and still offers the very best protection against bumps. It is the combination of EPS and Koroyd®, an innovative material with an incredible absorption of impact energy and an open cell structure, allowing the Smith team to increase the ventilation size without making concessions to crash protection. When this is combined with MIPS, a system to reduce harmful rotational forces, you have the very best protection levels without sacrificing the air flow.
Smith not only hopes that air will flow to your head, but instead 8 carefully optimized Airevac ventilation openings will create an integrated ventilation system in which channels remove warm, damp air from the head to create a comfortable climate in the helmet room. With XT2 antibacterial lining you can be sure of a comfortable ride, even when the pace and temperatures are the most intense.
What is MIPS?
- MIPS is a brain protection system
- Rotation movement can cause brain injury
- The low friction layer ensures a sliding movement of 10-15 mm, in all directions, reducing the rotation movement to the brain during impact
- MIPS adds protection
