Featherlight Lid: POC Ventral Lite Helmet

Obtaining the lightest helmet available isn’t always the ultimate goal. In years past, the end result would have been worthy of serious question. With the current focus on helmet construction and safety — including the integration of additional technologies like MIPS, WaveCel, Koroyd and others — it could be seen as antithetical to introduce a 190 gram, fully-featured road helmet to the market. And, while it’s astoundingly light, the fact hat the Ventral Lite is made by POC tells me that they ma...

Could MIPS be getting a total makeover?

When MIPS first debuted, its interior liner was big, and it added quite a bit of weight. Over the past few years, that yellow liner has slimmed down or even disappeared behind padding or inside the EPS foam shell. In that same time, several helmet brands have introduced their own versions of rotational impact protection. […] The post Could MIPS be getting a total makeover? appeared first on Bikerumor.
