The FORMULA LED MIPS helmet by BELL features the practical MIPS system to reduce the rotational motion transferred to the brain on impact and comes with a built-in LED light at the rear. The light has a power of 20 lumens and makes sure other road users will see you better after dark. Straps and fit system allow for precise adjustments to your head for a better fit.
• Rechargeable LED light (incl. micro USB cable) integrated in the adjustment system, with 20 lumens and 3 modes
• Robust FUSION IN-MOLD POLYCARBONATE SHELL
• 19 large vents
• Moisture-wicking SWEAT GUIDE padding
• Adjustable NO-TWIST TRI-GLIDES straps
• INTEGRATED MIPS FLOAT FIT adjustment system
• MIPS system reduces rotational forces
Weight: approx. 351 g (size M)
FUSION IN-MOLD POLYCARBONATE SHELL:
The EPS foam is injected directly into the thin micro shell while it is still in the mould, instead of shaping it separately and sticking it on.
The SWEAT GUIDE pad wicks sweat away from your eyebrows and sunglasses.
The strap system is easy to adjust, keeps the straps flat and prevents twisting – which helps save some energy when riding in the wind.
The MIPS layer is integrated into the helmet adjustment system to further reduce weight. This helps design more compact helmets that fit closer to the head and offer improved ventilation.
The helmet adjustment system combines comfort and safety with an especially lightweight design. FLOAT FIT optimises the fit of the helmet – thanks to various width and vertical adjustment options. The arms wrap around the back of the head to further reduce weight and ensure easy handling. Therefore, the helmet fits your head perfectly. Simple, lightweight and comfortable.
WHAT IS MIPS?
MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is a slip-plane system within the helmet. It is designed to rotate inside the helmet to slow down or reduce the impact energy acting on the brain, which helps reduce head injuries caused by rotational impacts.
WHY IS MIPS IMPORTANT?
When a head rotates quickly and comes to a sudden stop, the rotational acceleration can cause the brain tissue to experience high levels of strain. This stretching of the tissue caused by these motions may result in various types of brain injury. MIPS is designed with the intent to address rotational acceleration from impact.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
MIPS uses a slip-plane system that moves inside the helmet, imitating the brain’s own protection system. This layer is designed to rotate inside the helmet with the intent to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head. Science tells us that if we can reduce the strains associated with rotational acceleration, we might reduce the risk and severity of brain injury.
