MIPS adds further protection to your head
During the past years the number of cycling helmets with MIPS protection has increased. It naturally adds to the price, but there is also quite a benefit.
The MIPS protection layer inside the helmets in part prevents your head to twist when your helmets hits the ground in case of a crash. Your helmet may twist or roll due to friction between your helmet and the ground.
According to the inventor, a Swedish neurosurgeon, there is still a greater potential in improving cycling helmets as he explains in the article.
