Description

Giro Ratio MIPS helmet Midnight

Details

Giro Ratio MIPS helmet Midnight is a new helmet for us that is basically the Nine with Mips at a better price, the ratio does have a slightly thicker outer plastic shell, making it more durable than the Nine, but is also slightly heavier.

The Ratio is offered with the Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS).

This lightweight helmet is defined by its low profile and streamlined silhouette. A wealth of features – including the custom tuning of the In Form Fit System and Thermostat Control venting.

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS

In a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System (BPS) the shell and the liner are separated by a Low Friction Layer. When a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System is subjected to an angled impact, the low friction layer allows the helmet to slide relative to the head. The MIPS BPS is designed to add protection in helmets against the rotational motion. The rotational motion is a combination of rotational energy (angular velocity) and rotational forces (from angular acceleration) that both affects the brain and increases the risk for minor and severe brain injuries. MIPS BPS has been scientificaölly proven to reduce rotational motion when implemented in a helmet by absorbing and redirecting rotational energies and forces transferred to the brain.

THE GREAT MISCONCEPTION

STANDARDS AND HOW YOU REALLY FALL

Accident statistics show that many injuries occur due to angled impact to the head. However, in standard helmet tests the helmet
is dropped vertically onto a flat surface. The results are helpful for measuring precise vertical impacts, but far inferior for measuring the more realistic scenario of an angled impact. MIPS has been developed for reality and increases protection against angled impacts.
