For hard-shredding mountain bikers, the Alpinestars Vector Tech MIPS is packed with protective tech to keep your head covered should you take a slam.
Even the best mountain bikers don't always get it right and it's part of the game that sometimes you push a bit too hard and you'll be saying hello to the ground in a rather uncontrolled and unexpected manner. It's here the Vector Tech MIPS comes in, the extended coverage around the temple and nape, a reinforcing cage embedded in the rigid frame for added strength and MIPS technology all combine to keep your head protected from impacts.
The Vector Tech isn't just protective though, Alpinestars have ensured it's comfortable too. 19 air vents keep fresh air flowing for a cool head while a washable, replaceable and breathable comfort liner with quick-dry antibacterial fabric takes care of any sweat build up on those uphill sections. Keeping the helmet solidly in place is the dial sizing system, a simple twist to get the fit just right and ensure the helmet stays put when you hit the deck.
Lastly, there's an adjustable visor which can be tilted up for enhanced vision when pedalling to the top of the trail and there's space to accommodate goggles too - perfect shred-ready features.
