If you want a safer bicycle helmet get one with MIPS

MIPS_Headline_w595px.gif
Some people like doing crazy things. And that’s the way we want to keep it. By absorbing the damaging rotational violence from a n angled fall, MIPS Protection System makes great helmets even more protecting.
Spacer MIPS AB, the patented Multi-directional Impact Protection System, will be launched in more than 20 new helmet models this year alone. MIPS will be available in helmets across all categories including road, mountain, commuter, youth and women’s bike helmets from 661, Fox, Lazer, POC, Scott Sports, Smith Optics, Sweet Protection, Triple 8, and more.

“Much like how airbags became a safety standard in cars, we see MIPS as an equally important safety component in helmets,” says MIPS CEO Johan Thiel. “For 2015, we are pleased to add several new brand partners and to expand the product offering with some of our long-standing customers.”

The MIPS brain protection system reduces rotational forces on the brain caused by angled impacts to the head. In a MIPS helmet, the shell and liner are separated by a low friction layer that lets the helmet slide relative to the head during impact. The MIPS design was inspired by the cerebral spinal fluid surrounding the human brain, which allows it to slide inside the head on impact. MIPS mimics this protective mechanism by giving the helmet its own low-friction layer which also slides to absorb much of the energy created by an angled blow to the head.

Enjoy Bicycle Racing? Enjoy photos of races from the 20’s & 30’s? Want to see new bicycle racing photographs from 100 years ago?

Goggles & Dust: Images from Cycling’s Glory Days, Velo Press

Velo Press will publish early this fall a new book for photographs of cycle racing from the early 1900’s that you have not seen before. Goggles & Dust: Images from Cycling’s Glory Days, has 101 photographs from the turn of the century of bicycle racing in France.

We’ve seen the suffering photos before; these cover all aspects of the race from the start to the finish, crashes and repairs to victories. The photographs bring back those great days in ways you’ve never seen before.

The greatest kick I got was seeing what has not changed in 100 years of racing the Tour de France. Cars still follow the riders, and based on the 2014 tour; riding conditions still suck, spectators still run alongside races as they struggle up hill.

At the same time, the photographs show you bicycle racing has come a long way. No longer do riders carry spare tires; water bottles are plastic and on the seat and down tubes and bikes are more than a single speed.

If you enjoy old cycling or new racing, you’ll love this book.

Goggles & Dust: Images from Cycling’s Glory Days, Velo Press, Hardcover September 2014, ISBN 978-1-937715-29-8

New Oral Re-Hydration Mix from Skratch Labs: Rescue Hydration Mix

A new hydration formula designed to treat extreme dehydration in kids and adults!

Skratch Labs: 1-800-735-8904
Rescue Hydration Mix

Rescue Hydration Mix

Rescue Hydration Mix is an all-natural oral rehydration solution, formulated to treat extreme dehydration associated with vomiting and diarrhea in kids and adults. We created it when we couldn’t find anything similar at our local market or pharmacy that wasn’t chock full of artificial sweeteners, flavoring agents, and chemicals.

While Rescue Hydration was developed to rehydrate us when we aren’t feeling our best, at 750 mg of sodium per 16 oz serving, the benefit for treating dehydration after pushing a little too hard on hot summer days makes it a great complement to our Exercise Hydration Mix, especially for those who find themselves saltier than others. And while we don’t encourage anyone to get sick on purpose, a number of our first test batches, were used with great success to help recover from a few late nights of revelry fueled by a few too many. So keep on playing hard these hot summer days and nights. Rescue Hydration Mix has got you covered. Like all of our drinks, it’s made from real fruit and contains nothing artificial to keep you hydrated when you need it the most.

Great photo essay of a Ropes course showing everyone with helmets designed to protect only from above.

Climbing helmets only protect from drops. What falls from the sky?

Ropes Course 2010

A photographer did a great job of showing a group of people having a great time on a rope’s course in Granville, Ohio. The course and setting are beautiful. Everyone is wearing helmets. All the helmets in the photographs are climbing helmets.

Climbing helmets were designed for rock climbing. They were designed to protect you from a rock falling on your head. They are also tested to make sure if you fall and wedge your head in a crack because of your helmet the helmet will come off.

The only things I can see in the photographs that might fall on the people’s heads are trees. If a whole tree falls on you, there is not much you can do. Dependent upon the size of the tree limb, the helmet may or may not help you much.

But why? Why do you wear a helmet on a rope’s course?

Based on this, shouldn’t all groups hiking in the woods wear helmets?

An attempt to divert criminal prosecution or is there something to gluing cameras on helmets weakening the helmet.

An attempt to divert criminal prosecution or is there something to gluing cameras on helmets weakening the helmet.

Remember Europe has a different system of enforcement of laws to keep people safe than the US. Where we would sue, Europe regulates and if you violate the regulation you are criminally charged.

The article states that the head injuries to Michael Schumacher the famous race car driver might have been caused by his camera changing the effectiveness of his helmet.

Investigators are exploring the theory that Michael Schumacher’s helmet camera could have caused the helmet to shatter, leading to serious head injuries

Schumacher, an experienced skier, was travelling at a moderate speed when he fell and hit a rock. His skis were new; his bindings have been subsequently tested and were not at fault; he was fully in control of his movements as he left the marked pistes and traversed the patch of snow in-between two groomed runs in Meribel.

But now investigators believe that they may have found a reason for the seriousness of the crash. They think that his helmet camera could have actually worsened the blown, and caused the helmet to shatter into pieces.

Experts from ENSA, the world-renowned ski and climbing academy in the French ski resort of Chamonix, have conducted tests to determine whether the presence of a solid object between a helmet colliding with a rock would weaken the structure.

The helmet smashed – but the camera he had attached to it, in order to record him and his son skiing, was undamaged. The footage, audio and visual, has provided police with crucial information about the crash.

“The helmet completely broke. It was in at least two parts. ENSA analysed the piece of the helmet to check the material, and all was OK,” said a source close to the investigation.

“But why did it explode on impact? Here the camera comes into question. The laboratory has been testing to see if the camera weakened the structure.”

The following, however, maybe the real reason for the statements.

Lawyers had argued that managers of the ski resort might face up to three years in prison because the dangers lurking within the off-piste section were not properly marked.

Off-piste, usually meaning out of bounds or off trail here sections of the ski area where Mr. Schumacher fell might not have met the necessary requirements.

Do Something

Think. Although it is not outside the realm of possibility, it is hard to determine why a camera mounted on a helmet would affect the helmet’s performance. On top of that, ski helmets are designed to break. In fact most helmets only are effective once they break.

Believe me, as you know helmets are a real issue in my opinion. But to blame the injury on the helmet or the camera I think is just a way to dodge a criminal charge or change public opinion about the incident.

SeeMichael Schumacher skiing crash: did helmet camera cause head injuries?

To further understand the difference between the US and Europe see:

Another Litigation versus Criminal example

Criminal Charges brought against Everest Guide in the UK

Death of young climber leads to criminal charges in Italy

Want to make more money in retail? Then tell your clients that what helmet they purchase will affect their head. Spend more money, usually, and get more protection

Want to make more money in retail? Then tell your clients that what helmet they purchase will affect their head. Spend more money, usually, and get more protection

I am dismayed that some manufacturers, and many retailers sell helmets on price. A study recently showed that two helmets that both passed the requisite test, protected people from concussions at vastly different rates. Are you selling protection to people or just satisfying their need to think they are protecting themselves or their children?

The study was written about in Study Shows Concussion Risk ‘Dependent on Helmet’. The study can be found in the Journal of Neurosurgery and was titled “Can helmet design reduce the risk of concussion in football?: Technical note”. Simply stated a comparison was made between two helmets manufactured by the same company. Both helmets met all the requirements to be sold and used playing football.

However, one helmet had 54% fewer concussions by the players than the other!

Buying a helmet is not just putting something on a kid’s head and saying it looks good or is “pretty.” As a retailer, you have no legal obligation, but I think a great big ethical obligation to inform parents and purchases that there is a difference in the protection that helmets can provide.

There are helmets that are doing more than just passing the required tests.

Giro has a new helmet for skiing: Combyn™ helmet has a softshell design creating a greater range of hits that can be protected as well as greater over-all coverage for your head.

Lazer is coming out with several models for kids and adults with the MIPS protection system in the helmet. Ski helmets with MIPS will be Mozo DLX and Dissent DLX. Bike helmets with MIPS are P’Nut and Nut’Z kids helmets (available now) and the Beam and Helium (available spring for Beam and later in 2014 for Helium)

Kali Helmets: Kali is coming up with some new ideas in helmet technology that will change the way helmets perform.

MIPS: If you need a helmet for any sport that is not a DOT helmet, get one with MIPS inside. Testing shows it will make a difference.

Do Something

If you are serious about protecting your head, you need to drop the cash necessary to get a good helmet. Find out what each helmet does and which one fits. Don’t worry about what it looks like. A helmet’s job is to keep your head looking the same way, so don’t worry about how you look wearing the helmet. Just be happy to take it off.
