Increased Protection, Improved Comfort, and Greater Peace of Mind
I’ve been searching for a new riding helmet with MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) technology, which provides additional protection against rotational forces during a fall or impact. I dug deeper into the topic and found that a MIPS-equipped riding helmet offers various advantages.
First, it enhances protection by reducing rotational forces that may cause brain injuries. Secondly, it improves comfort as many MIPS-equipped riding helmets are lightweight and well ventilated, making them ideal for long horse show days or hot weather. Thirdly, it gives peace of mind, particularly for riders in high-risk activities such as jumping or eventing. Lastly, helmets with MIPS meet or exceed safety standards set by many riding organizations and events.
Choosing a MIPS helmet that fits correctly and complies with the necessary safety standards is critical. Look for helmets certified by reputable organizations like ASTM International or the European EN 1384 standard when shopping for one.
Several leading brands offer MIPS-equipped riding helmets, such as One K, Tipperary, Charles Owen, Champion Revolve Ventair, and Uvex. These brands offer a variety of high-quality helmets that provide maximum safety and protection while you ride.
I chose One K because of its sleek design and “long oval option.” With a MIPS-equipped One K helmet, I am confident that I have made the right choice for my safety and comfort while riding.
