Women's Shine MIPS RTR Helmet (Ex-Demo / Ex-Display). This is an ex display Helmet which has some minor cosmetic marks and the original box is missing. Please see image for details.
The Louis Garneau Women's Shine MIPS RTR Helmet is part of LG's #ReclaimTheRoad collection, dedicated to keeping you safe when you’re out riding during early mornings and late summer evenings. The Multidirectional Impact System (MIPS) is a new, cutting-edge technology developed by brain surgeons and scientists, which has been proven to protect the brain from rotational forces caused by angled impacts to the head – the most common type of impact in cycling accidents. The helmet has highly-visible reflective sections so you’ll be safer and easily-seen when riding in low-light conditions, with the key portions along the bottom half of the outer shell painted in reflective ink. Benefitting from Garneau’s brand new Spiderlock 4D adjustment system, the helmet can be adjusted both laterally and vertically, so thanks to this tiny engineering masterpiece you can make sure it sits perfectly in place with the right level of height and a secure fit. Removable padding can be removed, washed and replaced will retain its structure and performance throughout. Super MSB technology at the rear, a robust inner nerve and a Ringlock frame ring combine to create a tough, internal structure that provides excellent protection. Tri Glide PRO system allows you to comfortably fine-tune the position of your straps, while the 22 vents and moisture evacuation channels provide better airflow to the head – great for riding in the heat of summer.
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.
