MIPS – All of the helmets we carry come with Mips, which is a system developed with the intention of reducing rotational motion to the brain in the event of a crash. Just like Gore Tex is found across multiple brands of outerwear, Mips technology is found across multiple brands of helmets.
According to Forbes, “If you buy a helmet for road biking, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, or pretty much any action sports, the first thing it should have is Mips…”
We carry helmets by Smith, Giro, Oakley, and Sandbox, for ages from roughly 2 to 102, so we’ve got you covered!
Truthfully, when it comes to picking between the brands, it’s as simple as seeing which fits your head the best. Our noggins are crazy different sizes, so some models even come with a Boa ratchet system to enable adjustable sizing. (Yes, like the same thing on your snowboard boots.)
