Bell and Giro Bike Helmets bring you MIPS technology

When it comes to protecting your head from injury, any bike helmet is better than no helmet. All bike helmets sold at Century Cycles are certified to meet the standards of protection set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

There's a new game in town that steps it up a notch. Traditional bicycle helmets are designed to protect you from forces directed in a straight line to the surface of the helmet. Recent studies have shown, however, that ROTATIONAL forces are a significant factor that contribute to brain injuries such as concussions.

New bike helmet technology known as MIPS, or Multidirectional Impact Protection System, if available in select helmets from industry leaders Bell and Giro. MIPS can mitigate the effects of rotational forces by providing a movable plane between your head and the outer shell of the helmet. It's available in models for both road and mountain biking.

Here's a short video from Bell to explain how it works:

We have two bike helmet models in stock using the MIPS technology:
Bell Stoker MIPS Helmet
The Bell Stoker MIPS is ready to step up your trail-riding game, and flaunts plenty of substance with style. This wonder helmet sports Bell's Fusion In-Mold Microshell for excellent strength and low weight, plus their SpeedDial fit system and Cam-lock straps for an easy to adjust fit that won't shake loose no matter how rough the trail. Thirteen vents and four brow ports keep air flowing so you stay cool, and the adjustable visor is goggle compatible.

Giro Savant MIPS Helmet
The Giro Savant MIPS is an amazing fit for riders who enjoy great routes as much as a swift pace. The Slim shape combines impressive ventilation thanks to 25 Wind Tunnel vents, plus the comfortable convenience of the adjustable Roc Loc 5 fit and stability system.
