MIPS Technology

Internal slip-plane system creates a low-friction layer inside the helmet.

Above all else.

Since 1954, Bell has been committed to providing purpose-built protection across a range of potential crash scenarios. MIPS is designed to address rotational impacts by adding a low-friction layer which provides an essential slip-plane, like the brain's own, in an effort to reduce the rotational forces that could be applied to the head during some crashes. Bell is proud to announce theavailability of MIPS equipped helmets.

The minds behind MIPS

In 1997 Swedish neurosurgeon Hans von Holst began to study helmet construction. He partnered with Peter Halldin, researcher at the Royal Institute of Technology, with a goal to contribute to the evolution of helmet technology. As a result, the company, MIPS AB was founded in 2001 by Hans, Peter and 3 other specialists in the biomechanical field from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden.

The company has extensive technological and medical expertise focused on head injuries. They also conduct studies involving injury prediction and the simulation of head and neck injuries using advanced data methods. MIPS AB has extensive and profound knowledge concerning head and neck injuries, a result of 30 years' experience in the area.
