MIPS (,,Multi-Directional Impact Protection System") is a unique protection system that will be featured on the 2013 SCOTT Lin and Taal bike helmets. Years of research show that these helmets will reduce the shock transmitted to your brain after hitting the ground in an angle significantly. Most helmets are designed to protect you from vertical falls and straight impacts creating
high rotational loads for skull and brain. MIPS helmets absorb the rotational energy by imitating the brain's natural low friction barrier. This low friction layer is placed between the helmet's inner shell and your head without compromising design or comfort.
