Bell Powersports - Helmets Offering MIPS Impact Technology in Certain Helmets
"Bell Helmets has taken yet another step in bringing innovative safety technologies to the masses with the announcement that MIPS, or Multi-Directional Impact Protection System, will be offered within several of its higher-volume helmets. The technology, first offered within Bell Bike helmets, is designed to manage energy from rotational and angular impacts, and will now be available in three tried-and-true Powersports helmets this fall – MX-9, MX-9 Adventure and Qualifier DLX. Qualifier DLX marks the first time that MIPS will be available within a street motorcycle helmet.
“It’s our belief that ‘high tech’ doesn’t have to equate to ‘high price,’ and we’re demonstrating that by bringing MIPS technology to these helmets,” said Chris Sackett, Vice President of Bell Helmets. “We have led the charge for safety technology for 60 years, and our mission continues to be one of providing high-quality safety features to riders at every level.”
