Troy Lee Designs Stage MIPS Helmet (Stealth)Featuring the latest in cutting-edge head protection technology, the Troy Lee Designs Stage MIPS Helmet lets you charge down your favourite mountain trails brimming with confidence. If it all goes wrong, you hit the dirt, it’s got you covered. Lightweight Design. Heavyweight Protection.Coming in at a feathery light 690 grams (size M/L), the Stage MIPS Helmet certainly won’t weigh you down as you speed down your favourite MTB trails. However, there’s nothing lightweight about the protection it offers. The dual-density EPS and EPP foam core do a brilliant job of absorbing impact forces, be that a high-speed flow-trail crash or a low-speed technical trail tumble. These impact-absorbing foams are covered by a tough and durable Polylite shell with fibre reinforcement, ensuring this is a lid you can wear time after time, day after day and it will remain up to the task. The chance of brain injury is also reduced via the use of innovative MIPS technology. What is MIPS?Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is a proven system that reduces the rotational forces on the brain when you’re involved in a crash. The forces are absorbed and redirected to prevent them from being transmitted to the brain. MIPS is a Brain Protection SystemRotational motion can cause brain injuriesThe low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impactMIPS adds protectionComfort Built-inSo protection is first-rate, what about comfort? Yes, that’s fantastic too. 11 high-flow vents let fresh air rush into the Stage, with internal channelling and 14 exhaust ports creating perfect airflow. Uphill pedalling is now more cool and comfortable than ever. Inside, the contoured 3D XT2 cheek pads and washable X-Static liner create the perfect fit. And with 2-liners, 3-sets of cheek pads and 2-neck rolls you can always get the right fit and feel.
