Go Harder With MIPS Helmet Technology

July 30, 2012

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.
