A1 Helmet Mips Classic
Ratings & Reviews
by Kevin Riley
Just bought this helmet from a retailer. I am very impressed with the fitment, comfort and look.
<br>I have a big head so I bought the XL/XXL. I was able to try it on in store and immediately knew this was the helmet for me. So much better than any other option they had.
<br>It comes with a helmet bag and lots of stickers. Everybody loves stickers.
<br>You get what you pay for!

MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, it is a revolutionary technology that lets the helmet slide relative to the head, adding more protection against rotational violence to the brain caused by angled impacts.
