Contemplate the bar for lifted for security in mountain bicycle helmets with the Kortal MIPS Race. The new POC helmet, which is arguably the safest mountain bicycle helmet made, is for trail and enduro riders who drive their restrictions.
The massive innovation is MIPS Integra, a new invisible, in-molded update of Mips. Silicone-crammed pads (very similar to individuals POC used in its SPIN program) slide on a reduced-friction layer created into the helmet’s EPS foam, lowering rotational forces on your brain in a crash. The in-molded layer allows helmet pads move in any way on impression and the new design and style gets rid of Mips signature yellow plastic layer that was uncomfortable, pulled hair, and also limited helmet vent design and style.
But which is not the only “new” in the Kortal Race MIPS. The helmet’s visor, which can be lifted substantial sufficient to perch goggles on the brim of the helmet beneath, snaps off if it is hyperextended, lessening the chance of neck damage. Aramid bridges in between the helmet’s oversized vents continue to keep it from disintegrating on impression. The helmet exponentially surpasses standard bicycle security standards. A RECCO reflector inside of the helmet assists rescuers come across you in the backcountry. And if you have a crash poor sufficient that you can’t speak for on your own, rescuers can obtain your clinical information, title, birthdate, crisis contact, and additional by means of a scannable chip.
Just after two months of screening, we can also ensure that the helmet is the most at ease mountain bicycle helmet POC has at any time made. Eight vents in the front, 3 on leading, and 5 oversized exhaust ports in the rear retained my head amazing. And the in-molded Mips program synced seamlessly with POC’s helmet harness. Gone are the times of my POC helmet using forward and rattling close to on a rocky downhill. The Kortal Mips stayed planted in put, and was so cost-free of rattle, it felt like it experienced suspension. [$250, na.pocsports.com]
