New MIPS Helmets for Fall 2014 / Spring 2015

MIPS AB, the patented Multi-directional Impact Protection System, will be added to more than 20 new bike and motocross helmet models this year. MIPS will be available in helmets across all categories including road, mountain, commuter, youth and women’s bike helmets from Airoh, Bell, Fox, Giro, Lazer, O’Neal, One Industries, POC Sports, SCOTT Sports, Smith Optics, Stadium, Sweet Protection, Triple 8, and more.

The list of new MIPS helmets available for fall 2014 or spring 2015.

SIX SIX ONE
EVO AM MIPS
As the name implies, the Six Six One Evo AM all mountain helmet is a next generation trail helmet with all the features you need. The modern-looking shell is built from Contigo foam, which was chosen for its energy-absorbing properties. Specifically, it’s claimed to absorb as much as 30% more energy from an impact than the EPS foams used in almost every other certified bicycle helmet. While that may be the most important detail, more subtle refinements, such as the two-position adjustable visor and the user-friendly Boa retention system mean that you don’t have to forgo modern features in the pursuit of protection. And it’s topped off with a Fidlock magnetic buckle that takes pretty much all the effort out of strapping on your lid, despite the fact that it’s completely secure. Available with MIPS.

Bell
Super 2R MIPS Equipped
True all-mountain performance is all about adaptability. It’s about being prepared to tackle any off-road challenge with confidence, comfort and style. With its game-changing removable chin-bar, the all-new Super 2R is two helmets in one. Remove and stow the chin-bar in your pack or on your rack on long climbs, then lock it in place when you’re ready to rip more aggressive terrain. It’s a quick and easy 1-2-3
set-up. Add in Overbrow Ventilation, TAG fit system and a new breakaway camera mount, and you have everything you need to conquer all-mountain terrain.

Super 2 MIPS Equipped
Enduro racing, all-mountain shredding, heart-pounding trail rides in backcountry terrain. This is the stuff Super 2 was made for. It gives you full, extended protection with lower rear coverage than most of our competition—plus uncompromising comfort and ventilation to help you charge up the climbs. It’s loaded with technologies including cooling Overbrow Ventilation, a new breakaway camera mount, and an upgraded TAG fit system that makes dialing in fit easier than ever. And best yet, it is compatible with the Super 2R chin-bar.

Stoker MIPS Equipped
If you’re ready to step up your trail-riding, the Stoker is made for you. This go-to all-mountain helmet has just the right combo of substance and style. With Overbrow Ventilation and extended rear coverage, the Stoker keeps you cool and confident while riding challenging terrain. And its killer features—like the all new adjustable visor and SpeedDial Fit System—make it a great choice for any off-road adventure.
