Armis has been the first brand to make the step to be signed up to both the BSI Kitemark Scheme as well as fitting MIPS patented technology inside. This means the helmet conforms to the British Standard PAS 015 and is subject to routine testing of the helmet and quality controls. This ensures every helmet is made to the same high quality as the first one and every helmet is being produced in the same way.
The Armis Polo helmet has MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) inside that mimics the brain’s own protection system by adding a low friction layer between the head and the helmet. MIPS is based on reality, as when you fall, your head more often hits the ground at an angle, creating a rotational violence that leads to strain in the brain. With the MIPS inside, the helmet can absorb more of that rotational violence, adding better protection than helmets without MIPS.
