Ultimate Protection: Anon Helmets with MIPS

The reality is, danger comes from all directions. With MIPS, you get peace of mind knowing you’re protected in the best way possible.

Anon women’s and men’s helmets set the bar for protection, performance, and style. Every Anon snow helmet is co-developed with Anon’s goggles and lenses and face masks for a seamlessly integrated fit that optimizes comfort.

All of the performance culminates in Anon’s top-of-the-line helmets featuring the ultimate protection of the MIPS Multidirectional Impact Protection System. Read on to learn about how MIPS works and why it matters.

Anon Prime Helmet With MIPS

MIPS was first introduced in 1996 as a revolutionary system designed and tested to provide the best protection possible. It was born from the fact that you have zero control in a crash and protection from every angle is of paramount importance. MIPS is scientifically proven to reduce rotational motion by absorbing and redirecting rotational energies and forces transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the head.

The MIPS system is based on the human brain’s cerebrospinal fluid that protects the brain by allowing it to slide slightly on impacts. MIPS imitates the brain’s natural defense mechanism by giving the helmet its own low-friction layer between the outer shell and liner. This layer slides to absorb much of the energy created by an angled blow to the head. The result is a higher level of protection that gives you peace of mind when it matters most.

For the ultimate in lightweight, low-profile performance, check out the women’s Anon Nova Helmet + MIPS and the men’s Anon Prime Helmet + MIPS. For maximum ventilation and best-in-class adjustability, try the women’s Anon Omega Helmet + MIPS or the men’s Anon Echo Helmet + MIPS. Rounding out the MIPS collection is the women’s Anon Auburn Helmet + MIPS and the men’s Anon Invert Helmet + MIPS, which both focus on value in a clean and simple look.
