Description

Scott Stego MIPS Helmet - 2014

More expected at end of May.

Scott caught the attention of the mountain biking community with the introduction of the LIN and TAAL models featuring MIPS Technology (Multi-Directional Impact Protections System) which is designed to protect against angled impacts. The response from the consumer was nothing short of extraordinary and they sold out in record time

Scott has now added the Stego MIPS helmet to the lineup. Enduro and all-mountain riders will be lining up for this one.

Superb ventilation and Scott's new M-RAS II fit System. Comfort and Safety! Scott has come up with another winner.



Read this excerpt from Canadian Cycling Magazine:

Scott will be introducing two new mountain bike helmets for 2013 -the Lin and the Taal. What makes these helmets stand apart from other helmets in the category is the introduction of something called Multi-Directional Impact System (MIPS), a new protection technology that mimics the way our body protects our brain from serious damage.

Scientists from the Royal Institute of Technology and Karolinska Institute in Stockholm studied how people fall and determined that in most cases, your head hits the ground on an angle causing rotational force. This rotational force can lead to violent trauma to the brain.

One way the body combats this is the presence of a layer of fluid between the brain and the skull called cerebrospinal fluid. This fluid allows your brain to rotate within your skull to protect your brain under impact. This was the inspiration behind MIPS, a thin low friction layer between the inner surface of the helmet and the head.

Scott was able to achieve a helmet that greatly reduces rotational impact to the brain. The MIPS technology is undetectable in the helmet and doesn’t effect fit, comfort, ventilation or gain a noticeable weight penalty.
