Bell 4Forty MIPS
Prepare for the rigours of shredding with the 4Forty MTB Helmet (MIPS). Perfect for demanding MTB sessions where the intensity continues to rise, high-end breathability ensures you stay fresh from the first minute until the last. Fitted with built-in sweat guides and 15 individual vents, maximised airflow helps keep you cool while the lightweight feel of the 4Forty helps boost performance.
Rich in comfort, the high degree of protection offered with this helmet will certainly appeal to the mountain bike connoisseur. Boasting a full hard-shell, extended rear coverage and adjustable visor, this MIPS-protected lid can withstand whatever terrain you decide to tackle.
MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System)
Made to meet and exceed international standards, Bell also turn to MIPS to add an extra layer of head protection to their 4Forty Air. This split-plane technology gives an extra level of brain-protecting technology, designed to redirect energy and provide more protection in certain impacts.
This system is integrated into the fit system, reducing weight, simplifying the design and optimising ventilation.
• 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
• MIPS adds protection
Punching above its weight, the 4Forty is certainly a middleweight packing a heavyweight punch.
