The Bontrager Circuit MIPS goes to the top of the list when looking for a serious road helmet that has all the bells and whistles.
Looking for a lightweight lid? The Circuit MIPS weighs in at 300 grams for a size medium. A light helmet is not only less distracting, the wearer might discover that simply looking around is easier on the neck compared to a heavy "recreational" helmet. Need a great fit? The Circuit's new Boa fit system is one-hand adjustable with a twist dial plus a 3-position vertical adjustment setting. How about comfort in hot weather? The Bontrager Circuit MIPS boasts 14 big vents to keep the wearer comfortable. How about safety? The Bontrager Circuit MIPS not only complies with the CPSC impact standard, it is also equipped with a Multidirectional Impact Protection System -or MIPS- liner. This liner allows the Circuit MIPS to reduce the amount of rotaional energy to the wearer's brain during an oblique impact.The Circuit MIPS still conforms to CPSC impact standards, but if you experience a crash, a MIPS-equipped helmet should be replaced. A MIPS liner does not improve the crashworthiness beyond the initial impact. Commuters will be impressed with the Circuit MIPS, thanks to the included magnetic front and rear light mounts (lights sold seprately). How about style? The Bontrager Circuit MIPS will never be mistaken for a commuter lid or blocky mountain bike helmet. The Circuit MIPS looks the part of a real performance cycling helmet.
