Minimalist design meets maximum safety – the UVEX CITY 4 MIPS is the ideal companion for the big city. The lightweight INMOULD helmet can be perfectly adjusted in height and width to any head shape thanks to the 3D IAS system. For even more safety, the urban trendsetter is equipped with integrated MIPS. In the event of an impact, MIPS effectively reduces rotational forces and provides additional protection for your head. An additional safety elements is the deep neck area for improved impact protection at the back of the head.

The liner 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.
Removable and washable padding that is very comfortable and breathable.
A height- and width-adjustable half ring allows you to individually adapt the helmet to your head shape and measurements. The system ensures a precise and almost infinite adjustment.
An infinitely adjustable strap system allows for an individual adjustment of the straps according to head shape and preferences.
A comfortable, easily adjustable ratchet closure that can be opened and adjusted with just a click.
The reflective elements attached to the clothing as design elements or decoration do not represent a personal protective equipment as mentioned in EU regulation 2016/425.
