The first jockey skull to incorporate the MIPS (Multi-Direction Impact Protection System) the Charles Owen MS1 Pro Skull is also certified to three international equestrian standards to ensure riders feel protected whether on the roads or galloping the fields. Highly ventilated and also featuring a padded harness this great hat for every day as well as competition.
MIPS is a technology which allows a helmet to slide relative to the head, it was developed by the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden and has been used in cycling helmets for many years.
Unlike a traditional riding hat, the Charles Owen MS1 Pro Skull has a low friction layer inside which allows the outer hat to slide 10-15mm in all directions. This layer mimics the scalp to reduce the tangential forces transmitted to the brain during impact by redirecting the energies and forces which otherwise transfer to the brain which can cause severe injury.
Charles Owen has added MIPS to 'top-up' protection rather than replace coverage already held by the helmet safety standards.
