America's Top Eventing & English Riding Site Since 1999
The One K MIPS CCS Helmet features a matte Polycarbonate and Advanced ABS Composite outer shell. A low friction layer allows a sliding motion which reduces the rotation motion to the brain.
This helmet features: injection molded shell design; washable quick-dry, moisture wicking, anti-microbial liner; stainless steel mesh; comfort padded harness with synthetic suede lining, hook & loop adjustment, and Fastex buckle; two front, one back, and two center stripe vents.
MIPS: Founded in 1996 by a neurosurgeon and a researcher from the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden, the Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is designed to add protection against rotational motion transmitted to the brain from angled impacts to the head. Rotational motion is a combination of rotational energy and rotational forces from angular acceleration that both increase the risk for brain injuries. MIPS added protection has been independently proven to reduce rotational motion by redirecting energies and forces that would otherwise be transmitted to the brain. (Data and info provided by MIPS. )
