Cycling Weekly - - Tech -

MIPS is backed up by re­search that has mostly in­volved the in­ven­tors or par­ties with a com­mer­cial in­ter­est. Con­sid­er­ing this, scep­tics would ar­gue it is hard to say if it gen­uinely of­fers in­creased pro­tec­tion.

Also, many of the cur­rent Mipse­quipped road hel­mets have been retro-fit­ted with the sys­tem. This has the po­ten­tial to di­min­ish the ef­fec­tive­ness of the tech­nol­ogy. I’ve no doubt future hel­mets will be de­signed with MIPS and in time it could be­come a stan­dard fea­ture. The semi-form fit of this Pearl Izumi jer­sey means it’s not aimed at those who will be chal­leng­ing for Koms, but still fea­tures a high qual­ity cool­ing fab­ric with UPF 50+ pro­tec­tion and five rear pock­ets for the su­per-or­gan­ised among you.
