SixSixOne Crest MIPS MTB HelmetFor safer and more comfortable mountain biking, the tech-packed Crest MIPS MTB Helmet may be lighter on your wallet but it’s certainly not light on safety features. Mountain biking is thrilling. But the odd crash is also part of the game. And here the Crest MIPS MTB Helmet provides you with confidence to keep pushing your riding, knowing your head is well protected should you fall. This protection comes by the way of an EPS foam core and brain-protecting MIPS technology.In the event of a head impact, the foam core absorbs and dissipates damaging forces. The extended coverage to the back ensures you’re protected whichever way you fall. The in-mould construction sees a tough and durable outer bonded to the protective core – this provides protection from those overhanging branches along the trail and maintains strength. We then come to the MIPS technology. What is MIPS?Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is a proven system that reduces the rotational forces on the brain when you’re involved in a crash. The forces are absorbed and redirected to prevent them from being transmitted to the brain. MIPS is a Brain Protection SystemRotational motion can cause brain injuriesThe low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impactKeep in the FlowAs you enjoy the flow of fast mountain bike trails, the Crest will also keep cool air flowing to your head.

A simple twist of the dial lets you get a secure fit. The comfort liner gives you soft and quick-wicking comfort. And it’s removable to make it easy to wash and maintain freshness.
