In a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System (BPS) 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 BPS is designed to add protection in helmets against the rotational motion. The rotational motion is a combination of rotational energy (angular velocity) and rotational forces (from angular acceleration) that both affects the brain and increases the risk for minor and severe brain injuries. MIPS BPS has been scientifically proven to reduce rotational motion when implemented in a helmet by absorbing and redirecting rotational energies and forces transferred to the brain.
D3O® is a patented material with intelligent molecules. It flows with you as you move but locks together on impact to absorb energy and protect you. This unique innovative component provides an optimal freedom of movement and surpasses CE standards. D3O® back protection is low profile, lightweight, flexible and soft. D3O® protectors allow for complete freedom of movement and mold to your body so you will not even feel like you are wearing a back protector.
During the in-mold manufacturing process, the outer shell of polycarbonate material is fused with the helmet's impact absorbent foam liner, creating a super lightweight outer shell. With reduced weight and bulk surrounding the head, in-mold helmets are more comfortable than traditional helmets.
360° Pure Sound
On the mountain, safety is paramount, and being able to hear what is happening around you can save your life. For both of these reasons, Scott has invested in R and D to develop 360° pure sound technology, taking a step forward to maximize hearing capability while wearing a SCOTT helmet. Elevate your safety!
