More protection for your irreplaceable brain. The Overtake MIPS is the ultimate racing helmet, made to let you challenge your opponents with confidence. If you crash, MIPS technology will reduce the rotational force to your head, helping prevent brain injury more effectively than your average road helmet. Koroyd technology adds extra protection in strategic, zonal impact areas so you can focus on pushing your pace. Other impressive features include 21 vents, a rotary dial adjustment, a removable visor, ventilation to prevent glasses fog, and cooling liner pads to wick sweat.

Microshell helmets are made of a thin polymer sheet over a foam liner; Hardshell helmets have a hard polymer outer shell and a foam liner; when the liner is being bonded to the outer shell during the manufacturing process, it is Molded in the shell.

Most helmets are tested and certified for a specific sport. Some helmets are approved for multi-sports, but only after passing the safety tests for both sports (i.e., snowsports and cycling).
Cetification is established by a variety of governing bodies who set impact standards. Most helmets are certified or approved for a specific sport, except in the case of multi-sport helmets (i.e., a snowsports helmet might also be approved for cycling if it meets the cycling safety standards).
