Bell - Avenue
The Avenue MIPS Cycle Helmet features just the same fusion in-mould polycarbonate shell technology as found on their race-bred flagship helmets. Pioneered by Bell, this design sees the tough and durable outer bonded directly to the shock-absorbing EPS foam inner. This gives you a helmet that can take the knocks of daily use and offers excellent protection in the event of a crash. This technology also allows Bell to give the Avenue a beautifully sculpted shape with a total of eighteen vents, offering brilliant airflow for a cool head.
Getting the right fit is essential for safety and here you'll get the easy to use and precise adjustment of the Ergo fit system. The dial system allows one-handed adjustment, even on the go. Complementing this are the No-twist tri-glides. These quick-adjust fasteners keep the straps flat and positioned perfectly. Adding to the comfort is the Sweat Guide liner, it pulls sweat away from the brow so you don't suffer the sting of sweat in your eyes.
MIPS System (Multi-directional Impact Protection System)
The Avenue MIPS is designed to dissipate the energy from a crash and this is achieved via the EPS body and the MIPS System (Multi-directional Impact Protection System). This MIPS is integrated with the fit system to give a sleeker, lighter and less complex helmet that fits closely to the head.
What is MIPS?
• 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
