Mammut Wall Rider ‘MIPS’ Climbing Helmet

Whether you’re scaling walls at an indoor gym or conquering peaks in the great outdoors, you’re definitely aware that your thrills come with the danger of spills. Thankfully, Mammut has created a rock climbing helmet with MIPS technology, which stands for Multi-Directional Impact Protection System, the new safety standard for helmets across the board.

MIPS consists of a plastic liner within the helmet’s shell, providing protection against diagonal impacts. In other words, the MIPS technology mirrors the brain’s cerebrospinal fluid with the addition of a second layer inside the helmet which revolves independently from the outer shell. Mammut’s Wall Rider MIPS helmet is the first to include this vital protection system in a climbing helmet. In their in-depth research, Mammut discovered data showcasing a significant number of head injuries in climbing are caused by a rotational impact. The 225g dome protector also features an EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) cushioning and a partial hard shell for maximum protection. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a veteran climber, the Wall Rider MIPS helmet is a necessity — the new standard for protection.
