Don’t know what MIPS is? MIPS stands for Multidirectional Impact Protection System. MIPS is a “slip plane” – a thin layer of plastic that is next to the foam liner to reduce rotational accelerations by allowing the helmet’s liner to rotate independently around the slip plane during an angled impact. Helmets equipped with this technology may provide additional protection in some impacts.
