The CRANE MIPS FABIO Limited Edition Helmet by POC is lightweight, robust, durable and made for daily commutes or BMX riding. The dual-density EPS inner shell provides particularly good shock absorption. In addition, the robust outer shell protects your head in case of a fall. Secure yourself a Limited Edition helmet designed by Fabio Wibmer himself.
• Made with INMOLD technology
• EPS inner shell with two different hardness levels and a hard outer shell for more safety
• The outer layer of the EPS inner shell, which is against the outer shell, is especially hard and durable
• MIPS system reduces rotational forces
• Size adjustment system
• Large vents
• Individually adjustable strap system
• Buckle for one-handed operation
• EN 1078, CPSC 12.03, AS/NZ 2063-2008 certified
• Weight: approx. 400g
The inner shell is fused with the outer shell under high pressure and strong heat for a lasting connection. This makes the helmet very robust and lightweight.
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 and thus 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 may 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, mimicking 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.
