The Z1 MIPS is a lightweight, highly comfortable and great ventilated racing helmet with improved side impact protection. With the comfortable ARS® adjustment system and the integrated adjustable head basket, the fit of the helmet can symmetrically be tightened without any pressure points on the head. The rigidity brace system offers superior resistance against multiple impact crashes. 31 optimized vents ensure the helmet interior stays cool and comfortable and fluo color increase visibility in low light conditions.
MIPS, which stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, outfits a standard Helium helmet with a low friction layer to reduce rotational acceleration in case of a crash. It doesn't interfere with helmets existing protective properties - it only adds protection to the most common type of impacts and against the most severe type of brain injuries.
The Rigidity Brace system is a reinforcement for a superior helmet resistance against multi impacts. This system is comparable with a roll cage in a racecar. In case of a crash this will keep the cracked EPS pieces together so the helmet still offers some form of protection. This system does not guarantee the effectiveness of a helmet after a crash, every helmet needs to be inspected carefully after a crash and in case of dents or cracks it should be replaced.
the Advanced Rollsys system is a fully integrated mechanism which surrounds the head completely. By turning a smooth thumb wheel, situated on top of the helmet the system permits an accurate and progressive peripheral sizing adjustment. The fit of the helmet will symmetrically be tightened without any pressure points on the head.
Please measure your head circumference to get the right helmet size.
