SixSixOne Summit MIPS MTB HelmetWith its impact-absorbing core and brain-protecting MIPS technology, the SixSixOne Summit MIPS MTB Helmet ensures you can rip up mountain bike trails knowing you’re safely protected should you fall. When you’re pushing tyre grip, taking on more technical trails and challenging your riding skills, crashing is all part of the mountain biking game. The Summit MIPS MTB Helmet combines Contego EPS Foam, MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) and an extended rear shell to protect you in the event of a crash.The Contego EPS foam core provides exceptional impact absorption. Its ability to dissipate harmful forces exceeds that of a conventional EPS foam core, providing extra safety for hard-charging mountain bikers. Meanwhile, the in-mould construction sees a tough and durable outer bonded to the protective core, maintaining structural integrity in a crash. It also provides protection from everyday knocks and bumps and those overhanging branches along the trail. 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 Summit will also keep cool air flowing to your head. A total of 15 vents keep a rush of air circulating over your head, ensuring you’re not overheating when enjoying trail time. A precise and comfortable fit is made possible by the Dial-Fit System. A simple twist of the dial lets you get a secure fit. You also get the quick and easy fitting of a Fidlock magnetic buckle.Inside, the comfort liner gives you soft and quick-wicking comfort. It’s anti-microbial too, preventing bacterial build up – so no more itchy head after your mountain bike session. And it’s removable to make it easy to wash and maintain all-ride freshness.
