With the season getting underway and coverage still thin out there we figured this may be an ideal time to feature one of the more innovative companies on the protection side of things, POC. The company is one of only a handful to offer MIPS noggin protection in their helmet line. Not sure what MIPS is? Check this out, your noggin may thank you…

As someone all too familiar with just how fragile your noggin really is, the idea of heightened protection for your domepiece is something we find extremely interesting and awesome. As mentioned above, POC is one of only a handful of companies utilizing MIPS in a few of their helmet models.
In laymans terms, MIPS helps give your noggin a bit more protection in rotational based injury which is common during the blow to a head (there are direct and rotational forces at work). But hey, I’m a dude, not a neurologist. For those interested more in MIPS check out the MIPS website. http://mipshelmet.com/find-a-helmet
