Mountain biking can be a pricey hobby to get into, but when it comes to keeping your head safer in the event of a tumble, you shouldn't have to compromise, even if you don't have the biggest budget. And this is where the Youth Mainframe Helmet (MIPS) comes into play. Packed with the latest head-protecting tech, it offers superb coverage at an accessible price. From smooth flowing singletrack to tough and technical trails, it's got you covered.
The construction is of Fox's in-moulded EPS design. This sees a shock-absorbing inner EPS foam covered by a tough polycarbonate outer. Should you crash, always a possibility when tackling technical trails and riding hard and fast, then the EPS foam soaks up and dissipates the damaging forces of a head impact. The tough outer is there to fend off those smaller knocks and bumps you might get when getting a bit too close to tree branches and trail-side overgrowth.
Next comes the MIPS brain protection system, a brilliant bit of technology to feature at this entry-level price point.
What is MIPS?
The Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is a well-proven technology that reduces the rotational forces on the brain when you're involved in a crash. The forces are absorbed and redirected to prevent them from being transmitted to the brain.
MIPS is a Brain Protection System
Rotational motion can cause brain injuries
The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact
Keep the Flow
When you're on the bike and enjoying the ebb and flow of ever twisting and turning trails, the Mainframe ensures you don't overheat. With large vents and carefully optimised inner air channels, you'll always have fresh airflow over your head. So whether it's a stiff climb or fast downhill, you remain comfortable and fresh.
Inside the Mainframe, the moisture-wicking padding does a great job of preventing you from being soaked in sweat as you pick up speed. And they're washable too, so you can always get that new-helmet feel back.
The MIPS integrated fit is the final touch on this impressive MTB helmet. This gives a quick and easy way to get the fit just right. And a secure helmet is a safer helmet too. So twist the dial, get comfortable and go rip up some trails.
