Light, comfortable, uncompromising performance. With cutting-edge design and maximum ventilation, Rev is one of the official helmets of Team Sunweb. From hors categorie climbs to World Cup cyclocross racing, it’s the ultimate choice for superior fit, comfort and protection. Includes revolutionary MIPS brain protection system.

Features

  • 21-vent configuration for optimal airflow and top-of-the-head ventilation
  • LiteForm™ webbing for enhanced comfort and performance
  • Internal Structural Shell (ISS) for strength at a reduced weight
  • Giant CINCH+™ fit system for simple and easy head-hugging comfort
  • Proprietary TransTextura PLUS™ anti-microbial fast-wicking pad technology
  • MIPS is a low friction layer between the head and the helmet that provides added protection with respect to angled impacts

BRAIN PROTECTION SYSTEM

BRAIN PROTECTION SYSTEM Image

MIPS is a patented brain protection system designed to reduce rotational motion from angled impacts that can cause strain in the brain. MIPS mimics the brain’s own protection system inside the skull by adding a low-friction layer between the head and helmet. A helmet with MIPS can absorb more rotational motion from an angled impact.

MIPS REDUCES STRAIN TO THE BRAIN

MIPS REDUCES STRAIN TO THE BRAIN Image

The MIPS patented Brain Protection System was developed by some of the world’s leading researchers in biomechanics and neuroscience at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

Strain level images from lab tests where two identical helmets, one with MIPS and one without, tested at the same speed show a clear difference. The more red, the more strain in the brain. A helmet with MIPS reduces the rotational motion transmitted to the brain.

WHAT HAPPENS ON IMPACT?

WHAT HAPPENS ON IMPACT? Image

When the head is subjected to an angled impact, the brain slides along a membrane on the inner surface of the skull, which reduces the rotational motion transmitted to the brain. This dynamic was copied and technically applied to create the MIPS Patented Brain Protection System. It is a low-friction layer between the head and helmet, which in experimental and numerical tests has shown a reduction of rotational motion to the brain.

PROTECTION IN ALL HELMET CATEGORIES

PROTECTION IN ALL HELMET CATEGORIES Image

In a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System the shell and the liner are separated by a low friction layer. When a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System is subjected to an angled impact, the low friction layer allows the helmet to slide relative to the head. The MIPS Brain Protection System doesn’t interfere with other properties of helmets, such as design and comfort. Since 1996, research and tests have been performed to compare a helmet with the MIPS Brain Protection System to a conventional helmet. The results showed that it was possible to reduce the rotational motion transmitted to the brain by adding the MIPS Brain Protection System.
