The TSG Kraken + combines the 2 best helmet technologies available and create the world safest, most comfortable and most flexible head protection on the market. The Kraken+ adds the revolutionary MIPS technology to the award-winning FlexTech innovation of the Kraken helmet. By incorporating MIPS the helmet absorbs not only the vertical part of impacts, but also the rotational forces of angled impacts. This patented technology allows the liner and outer shell to rotate in relation to each other, reducing the stress on the brain and ultimately reducing serious brain injuries. Tuned with Fidlock snap helmet buckle for easy one-hand operation.
The Kraken+ Helmet has MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System). This is when helmets are tested by dropping them vertically onto a rigid surface. MIPS has had 15 years of study and testing in Sweden by some of the world's leading researchers and neurosurgeons, based on a different principle - reality. Because in reality when you fall, your head most often hits the ground at an angle, creating a rotation in the brain, which in turn can cause major damage. With MIPS, the helmet absorbs much of that damaging rotational energy, offering you radically better protection. And if, against all the odds, you do fall vertically onto your head, a helmet with MIPS will protect you just as well as an ordinary helmet. MIPS imitates the brain's way of protecting itself by giving the helmet its own low-friction layer between the outer shell and the liner, to absorb much of the energy created by an oblique blow to the head. The combination of the brain's own protection and MIPS therefore ensures maximum protection. Very simple and very effective.
