|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.
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.

The best is always the people. However I found some interesting products
12 days, 8 days of exhibit hall, 3 days of on-snow demos and another tradeshow season comes to an end.
Here’s a quick rundown of what I saw that I liked.
Slide On for ski boots: This product makes putting your ski boot on a breeze. From the maker of the Booster Power Strap. If you ski and you aren’t using the Booster Power Strap, try and get off the bunny slope and give them a try.
Nargear: Not a lot of bells and whistles, just make to take your gear and keep it in one bag, no matter how far you throw it.
Snow Angel: No I don’t wear women’s clothing, but this stuff is beautiful. Feels good too. You are on your own for finding out how technical it is.
MIPS: If you need a helmet for any sport that is not a DOT helmet, get one with MIPS inside. It may make the difference
Bern Hard Hat: I’ve told you a thousand times A new idea that makes sense in helmets: the Bern Hard Hat
Ski Retriever: Skiing Powder all the time and don’t like leashes, try technology to not lose a ski.
UClear: I’ve not tested it but if the ear phones eliminate the wind noise and the microphone eliminates all noise, these will be great for people who move
Loki: Did you ever have a coat that you grabbed when you weren’t sure, but when in doubt you always grabbed it. Loki makes coats, sweatshirts and accessories, all that serve multi purposes.
Orthahell Sandals: Ever put something on your feet and have your feet put a smile on your face. In a sandal even.
Suunto: Supposedly they have a new watch that works, by that I mean won’t break in 60 days. We’ll see. Heck, the PR team is beautiful……
Timex: Hard to read, harder to understand how it works, but as John Cameron Sayze used to say, it takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’
Eton: A product that made me go wow. Solar powered stereo that you can Bluetooth from your phone or MP3. No need to add songs to another device. Don’t know if it can take the outdoor beating, but works great indoors.
Replay: video camera a little larger than a roll of quarters, but not much larger
Hyalite Equipment: New name, old company solid great gear, bags, pads and bike gear
The Dry Guy: If you don’t own something from the Dry Guy, you are skiing with wet gloves and boots. The latest is a heater & dryer for boots, the Turbo Dryer that can work off your car. Warm boots when you put them on to ski after driving to the resort. Wonderful.
I have a lot more stuff to let you know about, but some I want to make sure the marketing matches reality.
