O’NEAL LAUNCH MIPS TECHNOLOGY IN TOP-OF-THE-RANGE 10SERIES HELMET

One of the original, if not the original, MX brands, O’Neal are proud to have been designing and developing protection and apparel for Motocross and Enduro riders for over 45 years.

We are still at the forefront of technical product development and have been working with MIPS for nearly 2 years to develop the new 10Series MIPS Helmet. The 10Series MIPS is aimed at racers and serious riders but still represents great value with the fiberglass shell and MIPS technology weighing in at 1200g and retailing for only €299.95

Taking the existing 10Series design and incorporating the MIPS® system has given improved safety with its unique impact absorption technology:

The MIPS technology

  • Multi Directional ImPact System
  • Setting a new standard in helmet safety
  • Unique, patented technology mimics the human brain

How does MIPS work?

  • MIPS imitates the brain’s way of protecting itself
  • Giving the helmet a low-friction layer between the outer shell and liner
  • Sliding to absorb more energy than standard construction

Strain in the brain

The graphic on the left was generated using a finite element computer model based on measurements obtained from nine accelerometers in a Hybrid III crash test dummy head.
The dummy head wearing a helmet was subjected to an angled impact using the MIPS test rig.  The model illustrates strain in the brain from a similar angled impact when the dummy head is wearing a helmet without MIPS and a helmet with MIPS.
