Innovation

Nothing is more important to us than keeping you protected. That’s why our R&D team constantly reviews the ever-changing mix of sports and equipment with which consumers need to protect their noggin’ and other vital parts. So, no matter what level of athlete you are, if you roll on wheels, rip in the snow, or carve across the water, rest assured we’ve got the most advanced protective gear to keep you safe and stylin’.

 

MIPS® TECHNOLOGY

You only get one brain. So you’d better protect it. MIPS® is a revolutionary new standard in helmet safety that imitates the brain’s way of protecting itself by giving the helmet its own low-friction layer between the outer shell and the head. This layer absorbs rotational violence during a fall, reducing harm to the brain. MIPS® is available in select Gotham and Compass helmets as well as the Dual Certified with MIPS so now you can ride safe and smart. Check out this video to better understand the MIPS Technology.

EPS LINER WITH CONEHEAD TECHNOLOGYinnovation-conehead

Dealing with traffic, dogs, curbs, and oblivious tourists taking pictures requires enough of your attention.  So the last thing on your mind should be how your helmet will react should you take a spill. That’s why Triple Eight engineered the patented Conehead EPS technology into the Gotham Helmet. This groundbreaking liner is constructed so it absorbs and redirects energy from an impact and reduces the g-forces exerted on your dome. So now you can enjoy the ride and battle those cabs with a lighter helmet, all while knowing you have one of the most innovative, shock absorbing liners on the market.

  • Winner of the 2012 BIS World Innovation Award in helmets.
  • Features collapsing cones that act like a crumple zone around the head to absorb the energy from a crash and spread the force sideways within the liner instead of towards the head.
  • Proven to reduce the g-force trauma to the head by reducing the deceleration of the head on impact.

 

SWEATSAVER™ LINER TECHNOLOGY

Sweat stinks. It stains. And worse off, it can get in your eyes. That’s why we developed the Sweatsaver™ liner. Our revolutionary liner has a moisture-wicking layer that limits sweat drippage, an anti-bacterial treatment to make it virtually stink proof, and a 360° wrap around design to ensure there is absolutely no liner separation. With our terry cloth construction, you can kiss that itchy-head feeling goodbye. It’s so comfortable, that even during the longest sessions, you’ll forget you even have it on.
