In mountain biking, trees and rocks are never too far away, which can be quite stressful. LG believe that you'll be less nervous knowing that you're wearing a helmet equipped with MIPS technology, like the Louis Garneau Women's Sally MIPS Helmet. A rider never falls the same way twice, which is why her head must be protected all kinds of falls and from impacts origination from any angle. The MIPS system is shaped like a plastic shell located inside the helmet. Upon impact, this shell moves inside the helmet structure. All the energy used to move the MIPS shell does not reach the head.
Louis Garneau are proud to offer MIPS technology in their helmet line for 2017. For over 20 years, they have worked hard to provide you with a better head protection, and it just makes sense to bring it even further. MIPS is a revolutionary technology, providing protection with respect to angled impacts. No matter if you ride on or off the road, you have now a good reason to upgrade your helmet.
This unique technology was developed by brain surgeons and scientists to reduce rotational forces on the brain caused by angled impacts to the head. Conventional helmets are tested by dropping them vertically onto a flat surface. MIPS is constructed to deal with how most accidents occur, with oblique impacts to the head. By mimicking the brain's own protection system, with a unique low-friction layer between the head and the helmet, it absorbs more of the energy created by an oblique blow to the head.
