    Roost is an off-road mountain biking helmet featuring high protection with a removable moto-style visor and AirFlow ventillation system for keeping cool. Featuring GoPro compatibility and integrated magnetic light mount. Roost delivers high value off road comfort and performance. Includes revolutionary MIPS brain protection system.

    Features

    • Created for the off-road enthusiast seeking performance features but with budget in mind
    • Trail-specific design with extended rear coverage
    • AirFlow ventilation system with deep internal AirFlow channels for cooling
    • Cinch Pro™ fit system offers optimal coverage by cradling the occipital bone for full protection, support and comfort
    • Removable, moto-style extended protection side-snap visor
    • Integrated magnetic mount for the Numen+ Link taillight and GoPro compatible mounting surface
    • MIPS mimmics the brain's own protection system by adding a low friction layer between the head and the helmet reducing rotational violence that causes strain to the brain at 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.
