Published on January 11th 2020


MIPS is a safety system built into some cycling helmets specifically designed to reduce the impact of a brain injuries in the event of a bike crash. Unfortunately crashing can be part of our sport and our heads are incredibly vulnerable to damage as a result of rotational motion. Concussion is a term widely used to describe the symptoms of damage to brain tissue after head injuries, but their severity can be wide ranging and often misunderstood. MIPS are addressing this with their product the BPS which can be built into the liner of a cycling helmet to reduce the energy of rotational impacts.
