Go Harder With MIPS Helmet Technology

Must See Action Sports Videos

Extreme sports have come so far in the past 30 years that protective headgear is no longer an option; it’s a necessity. Helmets not only protect athletes during gnarly wipeouts, they also instill the confidence these athletes need to advance their skills. Whether they’re grinding rails on a skateboard, barreling down mountains on a bike, or dipping into the woods for some fresh powder, serious athletes can go harder with serious helmets.

Go further with the new generation of helmets from POC Sports, equipped with a Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS), a revolutionary construction that mimics the brain’s internal protection system. Just as the brain is cushioned by a layer of cerebrospinal fluid, a MIPS helmet has a low-friction layer between the liner and outer shell to absorb impact to the head. Choose a POC helmet with the yellow MIPS logo to receive an unprecedented level of head protection.

Whether you are on the mountain or in the park, protect your brain with a steezy new POC helmet with MIPS technology. Start your search at POCSports.com.
