Description

The POC Trabec Race MIPS Bicycle Helmet: Thorough protection.

POC incorporated high-tech protection features when they designed the POC Trabec Race MIPS bike helmet. The EPS liner is reinforced with military-grade aramid fibers for extra toughness and durability. MIPS technology, unique to POC, aids to further protect your head from rotational blows. The Trabec Race design has a deep back profile for extended rear head coverage, and a lower cut at your temples. You will ride with confidence in the POC Trabec Race MIPs bike helmet.

What is POC MIPS technology?

Statistics show that the most common accident occurs with an oblique (or sliding/sideways) hit to the head, yet most helmets are typically safety tested by dropping them vertically on a rigid surface. POC's MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) technology absorbs both vertical impacts (in the event that you fall directly on your head) and oblique impacts (in the more likely event that your head takes a rotational blow). This mimics one of the safety systems Mother Nature put into the human head. Your brain is surrounded by a low-friction cushion of cerebrospinal fluid. MIPS imitates the brain's method of protecting itself by giving POC helmets with MIPS their own low-friction layer between the ABS/PC outer shell and the PC liner. When subjected to an oblique impact, the low-friction layer allows a small rotation of the shell relative to the liner, which reduces the force of the impact on the brain. In short, MIPS technology provides 21st century technology fused with a design innovation from the modern human brain, now in its 160,000th year. POC developed MIPS helmet technology in cooperation with the Royal Institute of Technology and Karolinska Institute of Sweden.

Bottom Line on the POC Trabec Race MIPS Bike Helmet

The POC Trabec Race MIPS bike helmet incorporates high-technology MIPs, Kevlar reinforcement and rear-head coverage in a protective helmet for serious mountain bike riders.
